Make sure your power line comes directly from the battery and that iyt has no abrasions or cuts in it. Check your ground and make sure that it has a good connection to the vehicle chasis. Ensure that the remote line is connected properly to the remote lead from your head unit/receiver.

Common mistakes in this area are using the remote turn on lead as a power lead. It does not have near enough power to drive the amp so you will only get a slight trickle of power.

Good luck!

I have a pioneer gm-d8400m the amp isnt working


flashing light could mean a few different things. 1- constant power may not be there. check with a test light or multimeter. should read around 12 volts. it would be a good idea to check all the power and ground leads. make sure u have a good ground. 2- bad sub. im assuming sub since its a monoblock amp. you can meter the subs. make sure the total ohm load is no less than 2 ohms. any lower the amp will go into protect mode. 3- bad amp. power supply may be bad. the newer pioneer amps are full of protection circuits. ive been a professional installer for a shop about 8 years and we sell pioneer. hope it helps.

I have a GM-X862 pioneed amp. red light flashing


REMOVE THE RCA INPUTS AND DISCONNECT THE SPEAKERS, THEN POWER THE AMPLIFIER UP WITH THS NO INPUT, NO SPEAKER LOAD CONDITION. IF IT STILL GOES INTO PROTECTION AND YOU HAVE VERIFIED THAT THE POSITIVE AND ESPECIALLY THE GROUND CONNECTIONS, ALONG WITH THE REMOTE CONNECTIONS ARE 100%, THEN THE AMPLIFIER WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED. LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

Basicly my speakers were working fine, my subs were working fine but everytime i was turning my volume up to a certain level i would lose all base and all noise from the subs in my boot, so i turned it...


The amp should always light up showing you that it is powered and there will also be a red light that will light up if theres something wrong.Sounds like maybe the hot wire that goes to the amp isnt big enough to give the amp enough power.Check your positive wire and ground wire for tightness and make sure hot wire supply is big enough and also the ground wire is big enough and has a good ground.I hope this Helps you.Have A great day..

Blown fuses


there is a possibility that the current load is excessive nor there is a short circuit from elsewhere, do not try to install again a new fuse unless you are certain there is no shortages of any wire from inside the amp and throughout the system by physical inspection

also install the right value for your fuse meaning the right amp and voltage, high temp is an indicator of shortages and defective power transistor

Red light on my amp?


Does the amp power up normally if you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

It's never a good thing to blindly short across a power source.

Pioneer amp and sub problems


That's a 4-channel amp, not a 2-channel, which makes me wonder exactly how you have it hooked up to your sub. Is the LED light on the amp coming on? How many subs do you have hooked up to it, and how is it wired?
