Try removing the remote turn-on wire from the terminal on your amp. If that shuts it off then you can use either the remote turn-on output from your head unit, or any fuse at your fusebox that only comes on with the car on.
If that doesn't shut it off the amp has an internal short and should be replaced or you could put an easily accessible fuse in its power wire and pull that when you wanted to shut it off.

Amp on all the time. how do you wire in the remote lead? We have it wired in, but the amp stays on even when the care is turned off? Help!


The remote is connected to the remote on the car radio. The same remote is being used by eg the electric antenna. If there's not a remote on the car radio wires, place a switch.

Stays on


check to see if the remote wire has 12 volts when you turn the vehicle off. if so that is whats causing it to stay on. check your radio or where ever the remote signal is coming from. if the remote wire does not have 12 volts when the car is off, then there is something wrong with the turn on portion of the amp and needs to be repaired or replaced. good luck

Amplifier doesnt cut off with car, battery dies every time


I assume you are speaking of the car battery, and it gets drained when the ignition is turned off.
Your problem is you have connected your system to the wrong power connection. Automobiles have wiring lines that supply power all the time, to other parts of your vehicle. You need to find a power connection, preferably from your fuse box, that stops supplying power when the ignition is turned off. This will also help provide a back-up fuse incase of any other problems you might incur.

LED LIGHTS DONT TURN ON


3 Options.
Check your powerwire, and make sure you fuse in your power wire is good and that your getting power.

Make sure you have a good ground. A bad ground will not allow your amp to turn on

Your remote wire that runs from you stereo. Make sure it's connected from you H/U to your amp. If you forget your remote wire(Blue), your amp will not turn on.

Amp not staying on


Hello lyttle_matt1,

Connect a DC voltmeter between the "remote" (+) terminal and the "ground" (-) terminal on the amp. When you turn on your Pioneer, you should read 12-14V. If you get voltage for a second and then it goes away, either the incorrect wire from the head unit is connected, or the head unit remote turn-on is defective. If the voltage remains on the terminal and the amp immediately turns back off, it's possible that the remote turn-on is not supplying adequate current for the amp. To determine if that is the case, run a separate wire from a positive (+) accessory terminal (cigarette lighter or fuse box) to the amp remote terminal. If the amp then turns on and stays on, you'll need to wire a relay into the turn-on wire. The wiring for such a relay is shown here. Most any 12V SPST or SPDT relay from an auto parts store or Radio Shack will work OK.

Auto amplifier installation


Does the new deck have a blue wire for remote and a blue/white wire also? The blue one is for a power antenna and shuts of when playing discs or axillary inputs. The blue/white is for power amplifiers and stays on when the deck is on. Also be sure the remote wire that goes to the amp is not pinched and grounded out to the frame of the car. Let me know, and be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid.

Blown amp


hi, try connecting the power b+ and gnd and remote turn on cables only (dont connect rca input or any spks), if amp doesnt turn on you will have to take in for repair. no need to buy new amp, coz problem could be a burnt pcb track or even a faulty remote or FET circuit.if amp turns on then connect other cables slowly and monitor the power lite as you do connections. you may have a faulty spk load that will cause amp to stay off or in protection mode. cheers
