I have a '95 lumina. It died in my driveway and now I have no power to anything including the dash lights. I have replaced the alternater and battery to no avail. What could it be?


Well not being able to see and test the vehicle it leaves me a couple of guess's which you will need to check out.

So you changed the battery ,, ?? was it dead ?? and the alternator ?

check the ground connection leading of the battery terminal to the cars body ensure its connected properly, there should also be a connection to the engine.

check the positive lead wire to the fuse box.

to test this easing (connect a voltage meter a. ground to cars body, b. pos to battery terminal)

if the wiring is fine then the only other possible thing is the MAIN FUSE. this fuse is located in the fuse box and is eighter an 80 amp, 90 amp or 100 amp fuse. open the fuse box and look at where the main battery wire connects you should see the use there. its bolted in place. or simply check the diagram under the fuse box cover.

Other than that its the car battery which you said you replaced and it still didnt work. So again recap
check wiring off battery to cars body, engine and fuse box,
check main fuse.

your problem has to be 1 of the 2 of them.

Amp worked fine on the way to work got off work amp would not power on


Check the ground wire. It should be solidly connected to the vehicle chassis in a paint-free location. It may have come loose, which would cause the amp not to power on. Also check the fuses, both in the amp itself and in the in-line fuse by the vehicle battery, along the live power wire. If they are blown, the amp will not receive power.

Everything did work but kept blowin fuses by the battery. Now a red light stays on, on the amp & the blue/green power lights dont *** on. What should i do?


Check all of your power connections, your speaker connections and battery connections. if all are good and clean (no shorts/wires touching) then try unhooking your speakers and see if the lights come back, if that helps then you have problems with your speakers, if not then amp is bad. I hope this helps ya.

Have Power going to the amp. Amp does not turn on. Do i need a remote? Bought vehicle with amp in it. LXA 600 Power light does not turn on.


you need to make sure you have 5 things.

1. power connection to the battery/amp
2. make sure you have a remote line radio/amp
3. make sure you have rca's radio/amp
4. make sure you have a ground amp/car frame ( scratch paint away for good contact)
5. make sure the speakers are connected to the radio.

if all is ok then check the inline fuse from the hot wire from the battery is not blown and the fuse on the amp is not blown.if so replace them. with the proper amp fuse.

The main problem I have having is I am getting power to my AMP but no power to the subs. I tested my AMP and subs in another car and everything worked so I know my hardware all works fine. I had someome...


okay , well you need to make sure all your conections are in the right spots, and that your IN LINE FUSE, between your amp and battery, the big glass one is not burnt, just take a look at the metal piece inside , if its a sold metal piece its good, if its burnt in half like a broken bridge it needs to be replaced. the next thing is the fuse on your amp, you need to make sure it is not burnt also. Check your remote that it is hooked up to the right wire. then check that your sub/speaker wires are connected properly and secure. YOUR GROUND WIRE IS HUGE HERE also. MAKE SURE IT IS GROUNDED TO A GOOD SPOT, YOU MAY HAVE TO MOVE IT AROUND A FEW TIMES TO FIND A GOOD GROUND!!!! if you check all of these things, it should work fine.. you can fiddle with your amp and bass settings levels. turn em up so when it works you know it, but not too much you dont wanna blow nothing :)

KDR606. When installed runs down battery overnight. Battery is OK. Connections as per installation instructions.New unit replacing Toyota factory radio/cassette.


disconnect the battery and measure the current flow.
measurement of more than 100ma (1/10 amp) will drain the battery.
if you have an external power amp connected,check to see that the "remote" is working correctly and not leaving the amp on.
If it only the deck by inself,take out it's inline fuse and see if the battery is still losing power.
Maybe the installer has made a mistake

The amplifier keeps on blowing out the fuse when i connect the battery


Start by dis-connecting the power lead at the amp, and securing it (where the bare wires are not touching ground) Now insert a new fuse then make the battery connection. If the fuse blows then you need to trace the power wire to find the short, or replace the entire wire, paying close attention to sharp edges and pinch-points that could cause this problem to reoccur.
If the fuse didn't blow, dis-connect the power lead at the battery then all of the other connections at the amp, reinstalling the power lead to the amp. With only the power lead connected at the amp and the good fuse inserted, reconnect at battery,and if the fuse blew then the problem is with the amp. and should be repaired or replaced depending on its value and the cost effectiveness of those two options.
If the problem has not yet been discovered, continue with tracing each of the remaining amp wires in that manner, as been described above.
Good luck...
