    What would be the best way to repair the amp, does it need to be given into a professional, or is it something i could repair? I dont normali play the speakers to loud, so the amp isnt normally over driven, the speakers are subwoofers and i think they are in working condition. where are these shorts normally found?

The amp has a short in it. It is common that the output stage becomes damaged for various reasons on many of these amps. The output and driver stages will have to be serviced.

Most of these failures are from defective speakers loading the amp, or there is a short somewhere, or the amp was over-driven by being played much too loud.

Test the relais condenser and replace , and test again if the fuse is blown.
Otherwise you must go to the repair shop.
The short is the most difficult are to isolate.
You will need a VOM.

Its plugged and not red or yellow actully no lights at all or green im trying too turn it on but wont work


Check the fuse before you come to any conclusion or think for it to be repaired or say it is faulty.

Also try on a different socket or make sure the socket is working.

Heater just stopped working in 1996 explorer what can i look at or what could it be?


im not sure if you mean the blower is'nt working or if you mean the blower is working but the air is cold so I'll try to answer both, if the blower is'nt working it is possibly a bad fuse, the fuse panel may list it as the heater or it may say blower, now if its blowing but the air is cold it is most likely a bad thermostat, sometimes the heater core goes out but if you havnt noticed the window fogging on the front windshield on the passenger side or smelled coolant in the cab of the vehicle the heater core is probably fine , the thermostat is a common culprit and they are fairly easy to change, one other thing before you go changing anything, check to make sure the radiator is full, with the car cool take the radiator cap off and run the car until it starts to get warm and see if you can add some coolant

Just recently bought a 2003 Mazda RX8. Everything fine until I came to set of traffic lights about 10 miles from home and the engine stalled and I could not re-start it. Got towed home and then tried the...


You say he removed the fuel pump fuse? Do you mean he changed the fuse? The fuel pump can't work without the fuse. Perhaps the fuse is blowing and causing the engine to stall and not restart. Find the fuel pump relay and swap it with another relay of the same type. Make sure the fuel pump fuse is good. If the engine starts, drive it around close to home until you think it's had time to stall out again. If it down'nt stall this time then the relay is bad and needs to be replaced.

Runs for 3-4 min then stalls, wont start until next day.


i would look at those items first by checking battery voltage at fuel pump if car stalls but pump is still getting voltage then i would pull fuel filter back out and check to see if installed correctly also blowing through filter to make sure its not clogged in rare occasions can be defective or if installed backwards if possible can colapse inside should have arrow pointing towards direction of engine if all is well check relay then crankshaft sensor

What eq settings do i need


Hello ed4037, If you are blowing fuses this means that you are drawing too much current check your impedance value on your amplifier it should be 8 ohms to match the subwoofer's 8 ohms of impedance. In addition make sure that you have the proper value fuses. In other words you should not be tuning the amp not to blow fuses, because you should be able to go to full amplitude on your amp without blowing anything. As I alluded to this sounds like an impedance mismatch problem. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83
