My protection light is on and the amp goes in and out. how can i fix this problem?


Either there is a malfunction on the amplifier , or more likely there is a short on the speakers cabling. If the cables are shorted, or broken, not allowing a sufficient load, the amplifier will protect itself by tripping a fuse. After a while, or on restart, the fuse will rearm itself, only to be tripped again by the malfunction.

Why is the red light that says protect on? my amp turns on but it dosent work, i have a sup hooked up & it dosent work. the red light that says protect is on.


first thing check all ground and power wires and make sure ur rca wire make sure it isnt cut in anyway. after that unplug ur sub and unplug the negative wire from ur amp, while its out check the fuses on the amp if all is well put all fuses back if not get new. then plug the negative wire back in if protect goes off check for heat and if no heat inspect the wires from speaker out put all the way to the sub, look for any wire touching another this is were most problems are even the smallest wire can trip a protect. if u still cant find the problem. an amplifier specialist is in order.if its trashed go on ebay and buy a powerbass there goin cheap right now. hope i could help

I have a alpine mrp-m500 for about two years no problems at all. but one day it stops producing sound. i check all fuse on the whole system. is the a protect mode? and how do get it out of it?


If you have checked all the fuses.
Trace your ground wire that goes to the frame. It may be possible your ground is no longer grounded properly. You may just need to unhook the fuse from the battery, Unhook the ground wire from the chassis and restrip, put on a new connector, chisel off the paint around where the amp was grounded to and tighten it back down. Hook back up your fuse to the battery and check and see if it removes the protect light.
Also check to make sure your RCA cables aren't bad. If the RCA cables ground it'll put the amp into protect mode too. Basically just switch out the RCA cables for a good pair.
If the remote wire on the amp is touching the ground, it'll throw the protect light too. That's pretty much the extent, unless the amp has a short inside it.

Hope this helps!

Amp


I honestly don't have a solid answer for you. I can say check your fuses. Check your battery to amp wire. And also check your ground. Make sure the fuse on your amp is also not blown

Green light comes on then goes right back off.


The TV indicates an error code 22 (short circuit protection). Check 2 STK392-570 convergence IC for shorts and 5amps pico fuse for open. I usually replace both STK's.

The protection light keeps coming on


That means something isn't wired right. Make sure that all of the power inputs from the battery are correct. Most importantly make sure no bare wires are touching (IE the positive and negative bare wires going to the subwoofer terminal.) If it keeps persisting, check the voltage level in the car and make sure it is normal, because some fancy amps have protection where it will go into protect mode if the amplifier is not getting enough power to supply. Also, does this happen when you are really bumping (like high volume) or just the second its on it cuts? Because when you really play it loud and it cuts, sometimes you are putting too much a load on the amp. Make sure the fuse in the amplifier is the correct fuse for the amplifier.

Nissan pulsar 2000 model no tail lights working fuse keeps shorting out can i get a wiring diagram off the internet


Before getting too involved, first remove all the stop and taillight bulbs, and see whether the fuse remains intact. It may be necessary to remove the front clearance bulbs as well.
If the fuse still blows, carefully inspect all the bulb sockets for signs of wires touching. Repair anything you see.
If I remember right, there is a set of connectors within the boot (trunk) of the car. If the problem persists, disconnect all of them. Try the fuse blowing bit again.
If it still blows, the problem must be between the switch and the rear.
If you have one, an ohmmeter check between the "dead" contact of the fuse holder (no fuse fitted)and chassis ground may show a dead short. Tyring each of the connectors in the boot in a similar manner may isolate one particular wire. Then you know what colour wire you are looking for.
Then it's just a matter of tracing the wiring loom back (I think it runs under the floor coverings from memory?), until you find the damage.
A wiring diagram won't really help, lights are always wired in a simple circuit. Somewhere the wire from the switch will split to go to the other light(s), and a short could be in the second or other wire.
I have seen shorts occur even IN light bulbs... so if the fuse doesn't blow after removing the bulbs, check each one before replacing!

Right turn signal blowing fuse


Fuses are a SAFETY device. Never replace fuses with larger amp ones. Take the bike to an authorized repair shop and get it done right. There could be a short or relay problem that can lead to more extensive problems down the road. Safety devices are put in place to protect you and the system. Like in a home: if you run 14-2w/grd to light fixture the max fuse to use is 15amp fuse. never put a 20 in because the wire can melt at higher amps. Same with your bike. the wire is not rated to handel more than is was designed and fused for.

When powered on protection light comes on


Protection usually means that there is a short some where. If it is inside the amp or external I couldn't tell you. You could check the fuse to make sure that isn't blown. I had a Memphis amp that blew both fuses and the protection light came on. I swapped out the fuses and worked fine, still works. If you have a multimeter set it to OHMs and check the resistance between the power terminals. It should be very high. If these things don't work then there is most likely something wrong with the amp or your power termination. I wasn't able to find a lot of information on this amp but if it has screw type terminals, did you use terminals. If you just put the wires in the terminals make sure there wasn't loose strands touching. I hope you can get this one.
