If you had your window open and it rained on the amp then there might be a problem. Also, check and double check the amplifier connections. Check the ground to the body of the car. Make sure the fuse under the hood for the amplifier is still good. Check to see if you are getting 12 volts always at the connector on the amp and 12 volts on the remote connector when the radio is on. Feel free to ask if you want me to elaborate. I hope could help.
