What kind of amp is it? Your question is very vague and doesn't include enough information to make a good judgement on what the problem is.

I have a 2005 ford escape I put a kill switch to turn off my amp and my radio but now that I want to take it off the radio wont come one unless I have the kill switch wires connected any suggestions


Look this is a very very simple fix. You have what is called a remote wire coming from the radio is usually the red and or the yellow wire what's happened is your remote wire which allows memory to stay on the radio is ran to your switch. You must eliminate your hot wire to your switch and run a hot wire off of your factory plug in to the remote wire on your radio. This will fix this issue.

Remote wire doesnt turn off amps. and when driving stereo shuts off and comes back on, or puting truck into drive,reverse,or park,the radio shuts down. not all power the lights stay on and amps stay on i...


it sounds like you either used the wrong wire to connect the ground or the wrong wire to connect to the remote power.

for ground it should go to a clean paint free spot on the body of the car - try using a screw that is already attached to the cars chassis or a metal frame point

for the remote turn on wire try attaching it to the wire for you stereo ( it should be switched properly)

if it is doing what you are saying one of these 2 options should work

good luck!!

if you need more help write back and give me as many specific details as you can

The red light on the front stays on and kills my battery WHY???


Radio is probably still feeding power to amp from remote wire....One fix is to run a toggle switch between remote wire from radio and amp.

My 4 channel amp keeps going into protect mode when i power on,its not a imminet light,but it blinks once then dies out,plz help


Remove all speaker inputs and outs and just have your 12volt battery, ground and radio remote connected and power up the amp. If it turns red instantly, then the amp is shorted/blown. If it stays green, then install your speaker inputs and outs one at a time. make sure your amp is on while your doing this. if the amp goes into protect mode, take note of which wire it was for it's most likely shorted. Fix that shorted wire and the unit should stay on.

Stays on


check to see if the remote wire has 12 volts when you turn the vehicle off. if so that is whats causing it to stay on. check your radio or where ever the remote signal is coming from. if the remote wire does not have 12 volts when the car is off, then there is something wrong with the turn on portion of the amp and needs to be repaired or replaced. good luck

My amp is not working! i have a live from battery and a good earth,but still nothing,does it need to be earthed to back of head unit?


Do you have the remote turn-on lead hooked up?

There should be 3 wires on the power side of the amplifier.

Ground - to the car chassis
Power - to the car battery
Remote - to the remote turn on lead from the head unit. (this emits a 12V signal to a relay inside the amplifier for it to turn on when the radio does)

I recently installed a amp to my sound system I have a pioneer deck when hooking it up everything works but when I turn it off the car theamp light stays on I check everything I think it is my remote wire.


You are correct!

If you have a volt meter or a test light you can use it to see if you have some voltage on the remote terminal on the amp.

If you do not have either of those items, just disconnect the remote wire and see if the light goes out.

If the light goes out, you have voltage coming from your radio that is keeping the amp turned on, that is normally a problem with the radio. The remote output of the radio may have a shorted transistor in the circuit.

If the light stays on, you have a problem with the amp. It is rare to have an internal electrical problem with an amplifier and the amp still works normal. That is not to say it can not happen, there may be a component that is shorted in the turn-on circuit of the amp that is isolated to the turn on cicuit only, and it keeps the amp on all the time.

This will become a big problem soon if not repaired. If the amp is staying turned on even when the car is off you will drain your car battery rather quickly. Most amplifiers will draw between 1 amp and 2 amps of current with no signal applied, this is called the idle current.

Find out which unit is causing your problem and take it to be repaired, it is most likely an electrical problem that will need good electrical troubleshooting skills to locate.

If you need any more help with this feel free to ask, with the model number of the unit at fault I can even find you some likely suspects to be checked.

Don't forget to give me a "FixYa" if this information turns out to be helpful.
