Your battery is probably not able to supply the current needed to power the amp and your alternator is not supplying enough charging current when idling. Check these two and the wiring to the amp.
Should be some sort of decent stranded copper wiring able to handle the power consumption of the amp. When you have access to a multimeter do check the voltage at the amps 12 volt power leads and when this is below 12 volt when idling I would suspect wiring and/or alternator/battery.

I have a 2009 audi A4 quattro, stopped for gas then went to turn on the car and it wouldnt start, the EPC light came on, now I cant get it started, what do I do ?

Seems to be a turn off and on key thing ( turn key to 2click then step on gas pedal 10 times ) or check gas cap !? Or just turn key on and off 10 times to clear it out !?

Car will not stay turned ON when cold

Try this. When you first try to turn your engine on, keep your foot on the gas pedal. The car should turn over but not start. (don't worry, its not supposed to). Take your foot off the gas and turn the ignition on again, but Don't touch the throttle this time. That should set your choke correctly. To summarise: Turn key with foot on Gas. Take foot off Gas, and turn key again.

Was headed to gas station ran out before gettin there so i let it coast to the gas station put gas and car didnt want to turn on,2004 dodge neon thanks 4 ur help

turn the key on and off 3 times, wait a few seconds between doing this, it will give the fuel time to pump to the front of the vehicle and also build up the pressure it needs to start ( when turning the key on, Just turn it to the On position, Not all the way to the Start position

Car wont start

THere is no gas in the fuel rail at the time gas is running out. WHen you fill the tank, it needs to pump for a while so fuel can fill up the rail then the Fuel distributor so it can build up pressure for the injectors to work properly. It need to continue cranking at least 2 minutes. However you don't want to run out the battery, so can just turn on the key to hear the sound of the fuel pump stops, then turn key off turn key on again. Repeat this for 6 times then start the engine. The reason for it is that every time the key is on it turns on the fuel pump to prime the line then turns pump off after a specific time, then it turns on again only when key is at ignition position. By doing this you help to pump gas into the fuel rail instead of the starter continue cranking draining down battery fast. Cheers.

Oil light

Hi lady d tilli,

Take off the fuse cover on the drivers side of the dash. there should be a bunch of fuses. in the middle is a red button that says "reset." turn your key to the on position, but DO NOT START. press the reset button until the change oil light blinks, then turn the key back off it should be fine after that. for the 05's theres somthing you have to do with the gas pedal. i think you do the same, by turning the key on but not starting...and then tapping the gas pedal 3 times.

Hope this helps a bit,
Good luck,
