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.

Installed amp and offset light comes on, no sound out of speakers


  • You have a ground loop somewhere. You need to check where your amp is screwed into at and make sure it is not to the metal on the car itself. Check your Power and Ground wire connections good to. What's happening is your amp is generating unnecessary DC current. Find your loose or shorted connection and this will go away. The majority of the time you have a loose or insufficient ground connection.

If the overcurrent of DC offset lights are not green, the amplifier probably has blown output transistors.

To eliminate other problems, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up normally (all lights green), the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Sony XM-2200GTX...Power, Green Light, All OK, No Sound!


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.
