DISCONNECT THE RCA INPUTS AND SPEAKERS AND POWER THE AMPLIFIER UP WITH THIS NO INPUT, NO LOAD CONDITION. IF THE SYMPTOMS ARE THE SAME, MAKE SURE THAT ALL POWER CONNECTIONS ARE GOOD AND IF POSSIBLE, MEASURE THE VOLTAGE AT THE REMOTE TERMINAL TO GROUND. IT SHOULD BE APPROX. 12 VOLTS. IF LESS THAN 11 VOLTS, YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE REMOTE OUTPUT FROM THE RADIO. THIS IS RARE THOUGH. IF YOU CANNOT TEST THE REMOTE INPUT VOLTAGE, THEN DISCONNECT IT FROM THE RADIO AND PUT A TEMPORARY JUMPER FROM THE POSITIVE POWER TERMINAL AND THE REMOTE LEAD. THIS WILL FORCE ANY AMPLIFIER TO TURN ON. IF YOU STILL HAVE THE SYMPTOMS OF INTERNAL CLICKING, THIS IS THE OUTPUT RELAY AND IT IS TRIPPING AS A MEANS OF PROTECTION. AT THIS POINT THE AMPLIFIER WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE....V

Rockford Fosgate P3002 stopped working


push down and up on your subs and see if they make a starching noise, if they do then they are blown. take a test light to the amp, on the power and the remote and see if it lights up. if it does then turn the amp down and with a small speaker plug it in to the speaker outs on the amp and see if it plays if not then your amp is bad.

How can you tell if your starter is goin bad


A bad starter will kill a battery real quick. If you can find a DC amp-meter compare it to factory specs, or similar car starters. A bad starter will make a grinding noise, or give false tries where the starter spins free without engaging the motor. Of course, a bad starter will not spin at all, just make sure the relay is working.

There may be nothing you can do about it. A lot of the HP printers make a lot of noise as they start up or prepare to print. Has your printer always made this noise or did it just start?

Check the impedance of the speaker to be sure that it matches the output of the amp. Common error on this detail can cause the amp to overheat and shutdown/protect.

Subs go in and out all other speakers work and kicker amp still has green light on


unplug ur acr wires if it stops plug the red one in an wait to see if it does it , if not then un plug it an plug the white one in an wait , if one of the in put on the amp is gone then it will let u know what one ,say the white acr wire made the noise when u pluged it in ,unplug it from the white acr input an put it in the red acr input if it stopped makeing nosie then its ur acr input on the amp . but if not then it could be in ur acr wires or cd deck , if u know its not the deck or its new then make shore ur ground is good an the power wire is almost the same size wires because the amp will draw more power if power wire is bigger then ground an if grounds bigger then the power its not goin to get enuff power , i hope this was helpful an please votes for me

My tribute started making a clicking/rattling noise near the belt that has gotten louder within a day. It is not the oil. Would you have an idea of what it could be?


Drive belt needed to be replaced on mine... Mazda dealership told me that the manufacturer knows that the drive belt is not strong enough... when I ran the air conditioner it was horrible sounding!!! It took the dealership repair 2 days to figure it out!

Kicker zx650.4 amp turned off and on


could be a couple of things going wrong. could have overheated and shutdown to protect it. could have hand to many incoming wattage/voltage from your head unit and shutdown. could be that the ohms rating on your speakers is to low or that the speakers could have heated up and bumped the guilds and caused it to shutdown. don't know if you know how ohms works. but here is an exp. if you have and have that is rated at 4 ohm stable and that is the lostes ohm recomened for it. and you have two 4 ohm rated subs. you can run them and run them with no problem as long as you don't bridge them. run them off of the same port on the amp. when bridging them it devides the ohms in half. so 2 4ohms would become 2 ohm. 2 8ohm would become 4 ohm etc. if you are running 4 speakers in pair that are 8 ohm each the total together would be 2ohm. hope this helps. try to duplacate the conditions that was going the other day when it shut down same bass settings same song etc and see if it happens again if so try unhooking one of the speakers and try it again if it don't do it it was overloading it if it was overloading and you know its right ohms etc. send it in sorry this is so long.
