car running or not? if it works with the car off then I would check the alternator, your car will require more power from your already low battery causing your radio to not play. If it won't start either way check all of the wiring going to it including your speakers. Could be loose or shorted wires. Could also be the switch on the unit. only way to know is to take it apart and test the switch. If all else fails then have it looked at.
Amp is probably over heating. Make sure the ohm load of speaker is good for that amp. This amp is not really built to handle a bridged 2 ohm load. Make sure ground wire is clean and tight to the body chassis.
right side above the rear wheel well -you have to remove the panel which has fasteners everywhere and a few screws under the carpet-might have to get a special antenna adapter too- ford premium stereos are weird like that-good luck
I would start off by doing exactly that removing the black box tuner out of the equation. The next question is did you install the black box or did you have someone else install it for you. If the box is not installed propperly then the audio outs could not be wired up correctly. Double check all of your connections. It could be something as simple as bad or no power to the box.
The person(s) who hooked up your system made a boo boo. They wired your remote turn on lead to the power antenna lead instead of the amp turn on line (both are blue and easy to mix up). Thus when your radio is on it sends a signal to the amp and the amp turns on, but when you set to CD the signal goes away and your amp shuts down. Easy fix, just re-wire the amp turn on lead and the problem will be fixed.
You have the amp connected to the blue wire on the radio instead of the blue one with the white stripe. The blue one is the power antenna wire so when you switch to cd, it would close a power antenna. If you dont have a blue /white wire, you can hook it to the red 12v wire. Good Luck
Off hand, I believe there is nothing wrong with the setup, maybe just not 100% compatible. It's just that the Sony Amp's protection is doing its job (just too good) and the stock radio is likewise doing it's job (but not too good).
Just maybe, at poweron, the stock radio sends out a small burst output (maybe capacitor discharge) that we normally hear as a slight thump in the speakers which was when no Sony amp, ok. However, when you have added the amp, you also amplified the thump, which unfortunately the Sony protection reacts to.
You can off course let it be since you have figured out a way to make it work or you can try and install a delay on for the power amp or separate it's power on from the stock stereo. The idea is to turn on the stereo with the Sony off and after a second or less, a manual switch or a delay activated switch will turn on the Sony. The idea is to switch on the Sony after the thump has finished.
Good luck and hopes this gives you an idea. Pls post back how things turn up. Kind regards.
The remote wire from the amp is connected to a blue wire behind your head unit. This is a power antenna activation wire; it's only active when the tuner is selected. Switch the remote wire to a blue/white wire at the head unit.
The remote turn-on wire from your amplifier is connected to a blue wire behind the head unit. That's a power antenna activation wire, so the amp only turns on when the tuner is on. Switch it to a blue/white wire from the head unit instead; that should be the amp remote turn-on output.
