Re: d7401 doesnt work

There is no fuse on this amp. It requires EXTERNAL fusing, as it is a PRO amp.
There are diagnostic LED's on the board if you look inside. They may point you to a problem, but the odds are the amp is shutting down because it is detecting a problem. You need to take it to a repair shop for an good tech to fix. Unless you are VERY into electronics, and very knowledgeable about the operation and repair of car amps, I would not attempt to repair it yourself. It is a very nice, expensive, high power old school amp. The power wiring needs to be sufficient as well. This amp will draw ALOT of current at full power. (80 amps or so I think) there's manuals for it floating around the net with the exact specs needed for the external fuse).

Amplifier wont move subs

I dont know if this will help you but start at the deck and make sure that the outputs(RCA) arent crossed over to highpass and do the same at the amp make sure that its set for lowpass- set half gain -bass boost half gain- subsonic minimum - If that doesnt help try using an i pod with an adaptor that you can play it right into the amp this is to see if you are getting signal from the deck to the amp if it doesnt work with an i pod or mp3 plugged directly into it then you may have got you a blown amp going on- good luck with that

First off, according to the manual, the protect light should be green. That's normal operation. If it is red, that's a problem.

If it does go red, disconnect all of the wiring to the amp except the +12V and ground. Short the remote connection to the +12V to force the amp on. If the protect light still lights red, the issue is inside the amp and will need repair. If the issue goes away, try reconnecting one wire at a time until the protect light goes red again.

LED turns on, but power light doesnt and there is no sound coming out of it.

it sounds to me like you have a bad ground or a short in the ground wire. try checking the ground cable as well as theremote wire (blue), and make sure the ground is connected to an unpainted,clean surface such as the frame of your car.

Amp runs but then will just turn off and red light comes on

you need to get a fan for it because it does not come wit one and when you get the fan you have to hook it up from the inside by taking the torture tested/bolt sign off and look for a small white pug to attach it to
