The amp is overheating it doesn't have a built in fan. This will be more occasional in the summer months. The best solution is to build a box and buy a few computer fans, install a fuse link run the positive of the fans to a remote wire and ground the fans to the chassis of your vehicle. You need a way to recirculate the air inside your amp. I've decided to remove the bottom plate of the amp, mount the amp on a board. Cut holes out of the board and have one fan flipped to pull hot air from the amp and two fans to push the air away from the amp.
You can buy the Antec and Rocket Fish fans for under $15 from Best Buy.

Red light comes on but amp still tries to kick.


Try removing the caps out of the system. It sounds like they have gone out. What is happening is the caps start storing up the power like they are supposed to do but then they are being discharged as soon as they are full. Bypass the caps and that should correct your problem.

Power light


This could be a DC offset condition. Check you manual for what this means. Or other condition. First Disconnect the Subs and try it. If it still goes red then disconnect the RCA's and try it again. If the Led continues to go red after the click then the Amp is hosed. The Click you hear is an internal relay that cuts the subs in after a dely so you do not get the turn on THUMP of the radio at your subs.
