2002pathfinder fan control amplifer blows out after working 15 minutes


Control modules are very sensitive to poor grounds, it causes the current to ground through compnents and damage them. Get a wiring diagram find the grounds and repair them first.

The Clip LED on Channel 1 of my SA220 is on continuously even with nothing plugged in the XLR or 1/4 inch inputs. Not getting amplification when inputs are used. Why?


That light is showing that there is power to amp in that speaker but there is something wrong with the amp or the speaker inside and nothing is coming out. You will have to troubleshoot the amp and check the resistance of the speaker to see what the problem is.

I have a red light right next to my ground remote and power wire Connecters and it comes on red and then turns off what's my problem


Ok, need more information, but I will tell you what I am assuming. I assume you are talking about an amplifier. Does it work after the light goes off? If not, It sounds like your amplifer is either going into protection, or that your amplifier is malfunctioning.

If your amplifer is going into protection, you need to check wiring. Most amplifiers go into protection if they sense an amperage anomoly (ie. fluctuating high and low, or overload). This would be a good thing because it's protecting your amp. But it's also frustrating, because now you have to find the problem. If your issue is wiring, I recommend starting from scratch. It's a pain, but will save you the frustration of checking every little thing and there a lot of things to do with the wiring. Always use a multimeter when checking for good ground placement. This tends to be a leading problem with amps shutting down. Also, inadequate guage wiring can also be an issue. Happy Hunting.

The words "autotek" and "STREET MACHINE" don't


IF the amp is working properly and just not lighting up...then it's just a matter of replacing the blown L.E.D.s that are needed to light the logo on the amp. You will need to remove the top cover to take out and replace the blown L.E.D.s

When i plugg in my rca cables to my amplifer in my car it pulsates the sub really bad.


does the amp light flash with the pulses? if so the amp may be bad, you may have a bad or too small of a ground wire, or the amp may just be pushing too hard. turn the amp power down and see if it takes care of it.

I have everything hooked up correctly and cleanly, but when i turn my truck on the blue light flashes on then off and my subs do nothing. I don't know if its shorting out or what is going on.


sounds like a loose ground, or a loose positive cable or possibly a blow inline fuse, and the only power your unit is getting is from the remote. triple check all your connections. use your senses, smell the amp, smell for a burned order, this usually identifies if it is something internal. but it sounds like in your case (from experience with) a bad ground. If your gound or positive is connected but not tight it may be enough to power the remote circut, but not good enough to handle the actual turn on (Click) of the circut. powering the led light usually takes about .5 amps, but powering the turn on switch usually takes anywhere from .5 to 20 amps, then the inital charging of the capacitors that are internal on every amplifier... that quick charge pulls a decent amount of curren fast (usually the first 2-3 seconds) to fully charge a small amplifer after it has clicked on. hopes this helps

The radio and the cd turns on but no sound comes out after having the battery replaced. The vehicle is a 05 Mercury Mariner


radio runs off two power wires, one full time power and one switched power check to see which is working. turn the key to acc. and see if power stays on with car off, check all fuses. open the hood and look at battery cables, look to see if everything was hooked up right and if there is a amplifer in your car could be a fuse on the line to the amp either next to the battery or next to the amplifer.

Fisher Model CA-270 amplifer. Audio select not working.


When you state that you can not select a device, do you mean that there is no sound, or that the device selection is not happening? A few more descriptive details will help here.

Thanks,
