Question about Sony Xplod XM-1652Z Car Audio Amplifier
The offset light is amber. The manual reads to check the ground on speakers and to the unit both are good but I still cant get the light to turn green
1. What type of head unit are you using
2. does the head unit have a Loud feature?
- Sometimes you have to press the loud button on certain head units to engage the amplifier.
Try disconnecting your remote wire from the amplifier, grabbing a piece of small 12 or 16 gauge wire and bridging the remote wire with the (+) on the amplifier. if your light does not turn green, then check your fuse and the ground for the amplifier itself and the subwoofers.
When you connect the remote wire to the (+) it should automatically turn the amplifier on even if the cd player isnt on. The reason I want you to try to connect the remote and power is because sometimes the remote wire for the cd player is bad. If it does end up being a bad remote wire from the head unit, then your best fix would be to connect the red wire (ignition 12v) on your head unit to an on/off switch to the remote on your amplifier. You can then turn your amplifier on and off by flipping the switch. If you go to autozone or advanced auto parts you can pick up a toggle switch for about $3.00.

Sony generally drives their power light from a source that does not rely on the amplifier's switching power supply. This means that it's not a good indicator as to the health of the amplifier.
As long as you have B+ and remote voltage, it will light up. Since you've tested the speaker and the signal source, I think the amplifier is likely defective.
