Simple test to try: Put in a brand new battery... If light goes out, then it is a low battery warning.

HOWEVER, it is likely a warning that battery is on so you don't forget to turn it off when done. Tried to find manual for it and could not. Your manual should tell about it.

    mine stays on to let me know it has power

    That is perfectly reasonable. It also shows the battery is being drained so you remember to turn it off when done.

How to set up and check the digitech qm1548 multimeter and tell me how to check a 12volt truck battery

put the black wire in the black hole , the red wire in the red hole
turn the knob( press the buttons ) to volts ad/dc adjust range to high voltage ( put the decimal point 3 places to the right on the screen
connect the black wire to the negative pole of the battery
put the red wire to the positive pole of the battery and read the dial /screen
the reading on a good battery will be 12 volts to 13.5 volts
now have some one start the engine
check the voltage while cranking-- should be no less than 10.5 volts ( anything less indicates a faulty battery)
once the engine is running increase rpms to around 2500 rpms
battery voltage should now read 14.5-14.8 volts
if it stays at 12 volts , the alternator / regulator is not working
if the running engine voltage is at 11 volts , the battery is supplying power to the electronics
Of course if you do not know how to read a multimeter or know how to follow the user instructions for the meter, what I have detailed here will not mean much , so take the vehicle to an accredited auto electrician and have a proper diagnosis done

What is wrong? my active bass whether i put a new battery in or not sounds passive no change whatsoever. quite a bit of the low end is severely missing. Schecter STARGAZER 5 bass.

That bass combines passive EMG pickups with an active preamp (which provides the bass and treble controls). Sounds like you are never getting the preamp to work, and if that is the case there could be numerous reasons...a dead battery...jack wiring that is broken (meaning the battery ground wire is not attached or is grounding out)...likely should see a tech, but that is a good sounding bass when working correctly.

Limiter light stays on with no sound. powers up fine but again the red limiter light stays on and no sound.

The power amp is likely blown. The limiter also indicates when the amp is out of DC balance.

On my fender blues deluxe, there is a red light which is usually off. I get intermittent loss of sound, and when this happens, the red light comes on. Any ideas what's wrong? Many thanks Brian

If the red light is coming from a tube and you notice a loss of sound when it lights up, try reseating the tubes. You have to make sure that the amplifier is cool and is not plugged in to any power source when you do this and you have to be very very careful with the glass tube as well.
If the red light comes from an LED, it may be an indication of a bad wiring. Check if all wires are in good condition and are soldered correctly.
I hope this helps. Thanks. :-)

My tuner shows a green flashing light, the battery is new, even checked it with another one. No matter what i do it just shows a green flashing light. picking the strings for sounds makes no difference at...

Often, the flashing green light indicates that the tuner is NOT receiving a signal and is a warning that the tuner is turned on.

First thing is to check if you have normal output from the guitar from the pickup. If the output is normal, there MAY be a failure in the tuner.

ALSO, just because a battery is new doesn't mean the battery isn't depleted... either try another from a different batch or use a voltmeter to check it. I have seen people chasing their tails due to a brand new bad battery.

When you select the tuner does the audio OUT of the guitar cut off as it is supposed to?

It is an indication of a bad speaker cable providing a short. If it stays lit with no speaker cables plugged in it is an indication that it needs to be serviced.
