Hello most amps will run 15/20 amp fuse on the main power supply .if it has a remote turn on this will be around 3 amps..i would not go to big as this is your protection if there is a problem.

Yesterday my wife had the car battery replaced by the RAC and her Pioneer DEH-2050MPG unit doesn't work now and gets no power to it. I checked the car fuse for the radio and it appears to be okay


Check all of your fuses. There are probably two fuse boxes in the vehicle. There may be a fuse either inline or on the back of the radio.

It just stop working wanted to no if there is a fuse in the back of the unit


If your head unit was installed properly there would be 15 amp inline fuse on the yellow power lead.
Also check your vehicles fuse panel for a blown accessory fuse.

Unit will not turn on. Believe fuse is blown. Where is fuse located?


Fuse is located either inline on your hot wire or where you plug in the harness in the back of the unit....Also check cars fuse box for possible blown fuse.

MY AMP WIRE COMING FOR THE THE CD PLAYER SEEMS TO WENT OUT HOW CAN I FIX THAT


Typicaly this circuit is fused as it is a power circuit. I would check any inline fuses. If everything is ok and you don't even have power from the radio (before any inline fuses) then i would check all settings, other wise you probably have a blown transistor

I hooked up a stereo system for a friend its a 250 watt amp and im using a 1200 watt wiring kit is the kit too high for the amp also i got it hooked up and it was working for a few minutes but all i got...


Let me address the wiring kit first. No the higher wattage kit is not a problem however you will need to change the inline fuse to an amperage that is more suitable for 250 Watts. The amps main fuse will be able to protect the power supply but no need to have a larger fuse than needed.

Now lets talk about the fuse. First off what kind of amp is it? Just for my knowledge. What is the rated impedance that amp can drive bridged mono or stereo (however you have connected it) If the total impedance presented by the woofers is lower than what the amp can drive the amplifiers power supply will demand more current than is designed for. I guess what I need to know is the model of speaker, model of amplifier and size of the inline fuse (right next to battery). Initial diagnosis would say the load on the amp is too large.

Rule of thumb for calculating impedance. The easy way if you have two or more characteristic impedance that are equal then you can add them and divide by the number of impedance to get your total Load however the formula is as follows,

1/((1/Z1)+(1/Z2)+(1/Z3)+(1/Z4)) or (Z1^-1 +Z2^-1+Z3^-1+Z4^-1)^-1
(They are the same thing, just written differently)

In electrical terms Z is your impedance, the negative exponent just means reciprocal.

So in your case if you have 2 dual voice coil subwoofers with a 4 ohm per coil impedance. If you parallel the two coils you would have a 2 ohm impedance. Then if you parallel the two woofers you would have a 1 ohm impedance. This is to low of a load for your amp to drive.

Let me know

I was playing a song off my iPod using the line-in mode on my KD-LH3100 head unit and the unit suddenly turned off and I have not been able to turn it back on! I am running an amp and 2 subwoofers in...


Did you check the fuse behind your stereo. IF you did and it still wont come on you either lost power to it or it may be time to have your unit repaired or replaced. You should have inline fuses behind the stereo use a test light to check that there is power coming to your fuse

Need under hood fuse box diagram for 1994 ford f150


Your radio fuse is not under the hood. It is in the dash panel on the left of the steering column. Y have to have two hots one constant for the memoty and one accessory that powers on the unit when your ignition is engaged. All you need is a test light to find the constant when the truck is off and the accessory that comes on with the key. There may also be an inline fuse in the dash that is blown. It would most likely be on the memory hotwire.

Changed battery cable now radio will not even come on.


When you said inline fuse I get the idea that this is not the original radio. Do you have power on the inline fuse? The 50 amp fuse you checked is a bit much for a radio. There may be a smaller fuse in another fuse area of what car type you have. If you do not have power at the inline fuse find some where you do have power (12vdc) and connect to it. If you have power at the in line fuse check the ground wire. If you have a test light or someway of checking for power test all fuses everywhere. If you have a fuse location guide for this vehicle look for the fuse for radio. If it was a add on or after market radio they probably caught power from the original source That is fused under the dash.

RADIO NOT WORKING AND I DON'T KNOW NUMBER FUSE TO CHECK


Some stereos have a fuse on the back of them usually a 15 amp. Some have an inline fuse round inside a small holder on the power in wire, they are red or clear. If you are refering to as which fuse to change in yours cars fuse box it is usually the one that goes to the Accesories, the lid to the fuse box usually has this information, or your owners manual, or you can pick up a motor manual for you cars make, model, and year at your local auto supply store.

Blowin fuses


it is always best to have fuse on battery lead but as long as the leads are definately going through the fuse panel then you should have no problem but if you have the fuse and it blows then their is deffinately something wrong.
The fuse on the battert leads is a backup as long as the wires are running through main fuse panel the reason for extra fuse is because the main fuse works other things running off it not just the one for radio so the fuse on the battery lead is their so that if something wrong with the unti then that fuse blows and only that 1 unit wont work but if main fuse blows other things might not work so its always best to have inline fuse so that only the 1 unit stops working incase of problem.
so its not vital you have one but it usefull so that you know where the problem is coming from and saves time tracking down fault
