Power light kicks on then off when I turn on the stereo

I connected everything as per instructions and everytime I turn on the radio the amp doesn't kick on but only emits a blinking power light on and then immediatly shuts off. I've tried everything, doble checked the wires, what could it be???

The amplifier likely has shorted output transistors. To confirm that it's not some other fault, go to the following page. It will guide you through the troubleshooting.

Kenwood ka 996 integrated amp. The standby light will dont turn off. I also need to see if someone will tell how everything should be hooked up.


the standby light should be on if the unit is not 'ON' if you want the 894 to turn on when you power up the 996, then you will have to plug the ac for the 894 into the 'switched' ac outlet on the back of the 996
what specific problems do you have with this system

I just bought a 2006 Toyota Corolla S, and my dash lights and tail lights wont come on. All the other lights work, such as the headlights, break lights, turn signals, four ways, front fog lights and...


the tail light issue could be just bad bulbs, check them with a meter ,, also, check the sockets for power to each contact point,, normally if the brake lights and flashers are working, the tail lights should too,, as far as the dash lights have you installed an after market stereo? If so a common problem is a wrong wire got grounded,The harness from the car to the factory radio has a wire for the dash lights that shows up as ground with the light off. When the lights are on the wire is 12V+. Check to see if you connected the ground from the new stereo to this wire. The radio will work perfect but everytime you turn thr park light on the fuse will blow...and the radio will continue to work. There should be a ground wire in the harness as well, ensure you connect the ground from the new stereo to this wire. there is a 15 amp fuse that blows, check them with a meter rather than by sight

Check the wires at the amp. Make sure that the wires are neatly bundled and clean cut when connecting them, a stray wire may be going under one of the connections from the battery input to the ground input of the amp, there for causing a direct short and blowing the fuse. I am assuming you mean that the amp's fuse is blowing. Get yourself a test light and test the wires for power. battery power?(12V) is always on and remote power(12V) comes on only when the radio is on(it should be the blue wire in color). Then make sure you have a very good ground, I always use the seat belt bolt or car seat bolt(direct to chassis). If you checked all these steps with no luck then the culprit may be your amp.

Hooking up amplifier to stock radio in Lexus ls400 1991


Hi Robin, I think I may be able to help. The instructions are referring to an aftermarket stereo and not the factory one. Most aftermarket stereos have a blue wire that runs either the power antenna or an accessory that turns on with the radio(amp, eq, power crossover,ect.) As far as the RCA cables, once again, most aftermarket stereos have RCA outputs for an amplifier. Factory ones don't.You can go to Wal-Mart or ABC warehouse and buy a wire harness just for this particular application and then all you do is plug the harness into the factory harness, everything is all pre-wired so there is no guesswork involved and no mistakes.

Either you blew the memory fuse or didn't connect the radio to the proper wire. Check fuses inside and under the hood.

The memory wire to the radio needs 12v all the time. If it's not connected or no power at the lead the radio will reset every time you turn off the car.
