You may have accidently hooked the AMP up to a constant power supply. You need to hook the power for your amp to either the unit (because it is on intermittent power supply) or find an accessorised power supply for it separately. Go to this site to see if you cant rewire your AMP.

I have buy JBL four way channel amplifier 3 months before. Nearly 2 times my amplifier is not working. Red light is glowing even wen ma car is in off conditions and amplifier is not working. help me


Hi, Looks your amp has gone into "protect" mode, the first thing I would check is the fuse, should be under the bonnet (hood) about 15 cm's (6" or so) from the battery. I've found a couple of sites that may be able to help with your problem.

2. > Amp in Protection Troubleshooting
Trust this helps, regards Alan.

No Audio


IT MAY BE A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK THE WIRES BEHIND THE HEAD UNIT AS THIS IS WHERE EVERYTHING IS POWERED FROM, MAYBE A LOOSE EARTH LEAD OR MAYBE A LOOSE POWER LEAD, SOMETHING SOUNDS LOOSE.

I got a stock ford JBL amp with no wiring diagram i need to know what wires are what i have tryed to test for the power wirer but no luck.


ok on most amps there are two sets of wire ports one for speakers & one for +12v,grd & 12v remote start if you look over each port it will say what port is for what wire if it is in a connector it gets slightly more complecated what you do is with a vm check from wire to chassis ground [like seat bolts] 12v with key off when you cet power isolate wire then turn key on till radio comes on then do the same test for 12v isolate that will be remote start then turn key off &check from the first wire to other wire for ground to find speaker wires connect a regular peace of wire to chassis grd & touch the wires you will here the speaker pop be sure not to hold the wire on long cause it will blow the speaker

JBL GTO 301.1ii protect mode


Hello roets81,

Check the voltage at the amp. It's possible that the voltage is either too high (above 16V) or too low (below 8.5V). Also make sure that the amp case is not grounded. If these check out OK, the most likely cause is that the amp itself is defective and requires service.

Hope this helps.

Remote wire hook up


The Remote wire should connect to the remote turn on lead from you radio(most aftermarket radios use a blue and white or a blue wire for the remote turn on). This wire will send a 12v signal to the amp from the radio when the radio is turned on. You can disconnect the remote turn on lead from the amp and jump a wire from the terminal marked battery to the remote turn on terminal just to see if the amp powers up. Do not leave it this way however because your amp will not shut off and your battery will go dead.

Hooked my punch Punch P450.4 up to speakers and ran rca cables to front and it wont work


Hi Jon,  you need to hook the Remote wire up to the Radios  Blue remote wire.  The car battery power stays on all the time.  The blue Remote wire watches to see when the radio turns on, and signal the amp to turn on as well.
