If I understand you right, your amplifier is never turing off

The remote wire from your head unit should be the wire that goes to the remote turn on of the amp.

If that wire is getting constant voltage to the amp you have a problem in the head unit.

This is something that will require your head unit to be checked by a technician.

Before you take it to a service center, make sure that this is your real problem.

I may be able to help you with that.

First , how do you know the remote wire is getting constant voltage to the amp, how did you check it?

Is the amp on all the time, even with the car turned off?

Does the amp turn off if you disconnect the remote wire from it?

Let me know if I can be of more help.

    It is settled then, you have a problem in the head unit.



    Are going to try and fix this yourself?



    If so, I need the model number of the head unit. if I have a service manual for it, I should be able to guide you thru it.

    I have thousands of service manuals



    You will need a power supply, multimeter, and soldering iron with solder and some solder wick.



    Thanks for the "FixYa" it is appreciated :)

My amp i just instaled is a terminater mtx 250 watt amp and the lights are flashing instead of a constant red i checked my power and ground what else would it be


Check your remote wire on both the deck and amp... If the remote wire is loose it will turn the amp on and off constantly... Also check to make sure that the fuses on the amp it self are properly seated.

If your radio is still playing and the subs are giving you music, you most likely have the amp remote wire hooked to a constant power source on the radio. Generally, this is a solid blue wire on both the radio and the wiring harness. It allows the radio to turn the amp on and off when the radio is on or, subsequently, off.

Backfeed problems


back feed can be caused by running your rca's beside your power wire, and if you don't have your remote wire connected properly your amp might not turn on, or off depending on the amp. it could also be your power wires (acc and constant power) on your deck are mixed up, you would be able to tell if it cant remember the time

I just bought a Kenwood KDC-X493 and installed it in my Alero. I hooked it up to an amp and a sub and it only works with the tuner and not and Ipod or an auxilary hookup or even a cd. what is wrong.


Hello jarhead455,

It sounds like the remote terminal on your sub amp is not properly connected. The KDC-X493 has a wire to turn on a remote amp (Blue/White) and a wire for a power antenna (Blue). If the blue wire is connected to the amp remote terminal, the amp will only turn on when the tuner source on the receiver is selected. If the correct wire is connected, the problem is most likely in the receiver.

If the receiver is at fault, not under warranty, and you still want to use it, you can connect any fused 12V+ to the amp remote terminal. A simple way is to jumper a short wire between the power and remote terminals. Wire the jumper through a SPST switch conveniently located so that you can turn it ON and OFF as desired.

Hope this helps.

I just got the Kenwood Sub KSC WA100 from my cousin with no electric wires or nothing so pretty much what all do i need and where can i find it i will be putting it in a 07 nissan sentra 2.0


Subs are subs, they come with no wiring. You need an amp and all necessary wiring to get it bumping. What type of deck do you have? Where will the sub be placed? In the trunk? Amp install is easy. Also suggest purchasing one of those amp kits for $20-$30, makes it a bit easier.

Remote wire


If it is one sub with one amp, one remote needs to be hooked up. Not familar with your exact set up, but should stay constant for all. The remote signals the amp to turn on power when the deck is turned on thats it.

I have two fusion amplifiers in my car.When i turn on my cd player one turn's on and another one not.What's a problem?


Make sure your power is properly connected and grounded on the amp that is not powering on.
The remote (blue) wire from each amp has to be connected to the remote wire or remote location on the deck itself.
You can also bridge the remotes from both amps to each other as long as the remote is connected from one of the amps to the remote location on the deck.

Dont know where to hookup the remote amp wire


Tap into the blue antenna lead on the harness if you have an aftermarket head unit. If not, you can run from the switched ignition power wire on the factory head unit. If you pull the head unit out, it may have a diagram on it telling you which wire does what. There are two power wires - one is constant power to maintain radio presets, clock, etc, and the other one is triggered when you turn the key - that's the one you'd want. If you use constant power, your amp would never shut off, even when the key was out of the ignition. If none of that is feasible, run the wire from the battery to your remote turn-on connection on the amp, but put a switch on it up near the driver's seat, so you can turn the amp on manually.

Remote wire


You have the REMOTE wire hooked to a constant +12V source. The remote wire is supposed to correspond to the ACCY wire to the vehicle, usually through an aftermarket Audio DECK. If it is reaming on when turning the key OFF the wire you currently have it spliced to is a CONSTANT +12V , which is connected directly to the battery. If you do not have a aftermarket Deck, hook the remote wire to the ACCY wire conecting to the factory radio.
