I just had the same thing happen to my friend's car. More than likely your remote wire from the amp is connected to the remote wire for your power antenna comming from your deck. There are usually two blue wires coming from the back of your deck. Simply take the remote wire from your amp and connect it to the other blue wire coming from your deck and you should be good to go.

Make sure you used the blue with white stripe wire from your head unit for the remote wire for your amp. The solid blue wire is for triggering on the power antenna and does not supply voltage in CD or AUX

I have an amp powering two subs but only work with the radio and not when its in aux mode or cd mode. do i need some other conection


I am not familiar with your head unit but I know some radios can control audio options for each source. My unit has adjustments for bass treble fade sub out etc in each source like radio, dvd, cd usb etc. I would check this first. For example, my radio can have the bass set to zero while the dvd can have the bass set to 5. If this is the case for your stereo, the sub out for the different sources can still be set to off.

How do I turn my subs on on my xdm7510 radio


check to see if you have power going to the amp. Battery(+) and Negatve(ground). if those are ok, turn the radio on and check to see if the remote wire(it's usually blue) has power. if you have power on the battery wire and the remote wire from the radio, then there is a problem with your amp. check fuses on the amp if any.

Sony xplode cd player sub problems


Switch your blue wires around.

You have put the remote antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amplifier. The radio cuts off the power to the "power antenna" when you switch to a different mode... so your amplifier is now losing the turn on signal it requires to stay on.

Simple 2 minute fix.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Troubleshooting in car cd player


that is very strange but it could be that when you put the cd in the radio it maybe sending out a quick shot of amplified power I would try disconecting the subs put in a cd let it play a little then plug the subs in while the cd is playing and see if they work if this works you may to get a new radio or put in a switch to turn the subs off or some type of momentary circuit breaker I'm just trying to help I never saw anything like that before good luck........
