Aftermarket speakers stoped working

Can a head phone be plug into the unit and if so - can you hear sound over the head phone. Also first look if nothing is stuck in the head phone jack (where it is plugged in as kids tend to stuff small objects into it). If sound can be heard over the head phones the unit is ok. The problem then lies with in the speaker output circuitry. The speaker output wiring has most of the time a inbuilt fuse that protects the circuitry when the speaker wires are shorted out when power (volume) is on. The unit has to be opened to replace it by a knowledgeable person.

Hi I'm having a few issues with my deh 2100 head unit in my VY commodore. I installed it myself with the right wiring harness but the head unit doesn't remember settings or band settings. Also when the...

When a head unit doesn't remember settings like yours, then the Yellow constant battery wire isn't hooked up correctly. This wire provides power to your unit constantly from the battery so that it can remember the settings and such. Your aerial not going up is the Blue power antenna wire. This wire will provide power so that when you turn your unit on, it powers the antenna to go up. Hope this helps!

Deh-9300 remote on wire ground

There is an internal relay that switches the amplifier remote turn on from ground to 12VDC when the ignition (ACC) wire is applied power.

The internal relay (inside the radio) is faulty and must be repaired.

Powers down at high volumes

If your head unit powers off at high output it could be several things.
1. check ALL your grounds (head unit, amp, etc..)
2. it could be a a short.
3. head unit could be defective

disconnect the amp power/signal and see what hapepens.
If it doesnt happen you probably have an open ground or short in your amp power or signal cables. Amp could be defective but that is unlikely

If it still dies when the amp is disconnected it is isolated to your head unit. Check your head unit's ground/power/fusing or swap in another head unit to eliminate wiring faults.

Good Luck!

Fan on amp runs constantly. will this drain my battery?

Yes, and would imply that the amp is powered up all the time.

You should correctly wire your system by

1.Connecting the constant 12vdc input wire to a constant 12vdc source to power the in-dash head units memory.

2.Connecting the switched 12vdc input wire to a switched 12vdc source to power the head units primary functions.

3.Connecting the remote output wire (typically a blue wire) from the in-dash head unit to the correct terminal on the amp, so the amp will only power up when the head unit is on.

4 Remember to run the signal (speaker) wires in a chase separated from the amps power wires, so as to avoid a buzzing noise in the speakers.

5. Always use an in-line fuse on the amp and the head units main power wires.

Note: A properly powered amp will produce a better sound quality then if it were under powered, so be sure to use the proper wire gauge as your amps power supply.

Good luck

Amp shuts off when switched from radio to cd

your amps rem wire is hooked to the power antenna wire on your head unit and so when you turn off the radio you would nolonger need an antenna so it powers down and would lower the antenna.Depending on the head unit you should have one output for the power antenna and one for the amp rem......If your head unit doesn't have the rem output you can wire it to the switched wire that powers your head unit but keep in mind the amp will stay on while you have the key in acc or run position even if your head unit is off.
hope this helps!
