This means your amp is in "protect mode" this light indicates that your amp is having a short circuit or loose of power.
Check your cables, if they are secured & no exposed wire And most important of all, check your voltage reading, it must be above 12v.
Loosing voltage in car audio is the number1 factor of heat/thermal problem & fire.
When an amp looses voltage, heat builds up inside it. Too much heat will make the amp be on "protect mode", excessive voltage drop will cause the amp's circuit board & other parts to be burned.
So, always watch your Voltage, either with a plug-in volt-meter or with a fuse holder & voltmeter.
Hope this helps.

Why is jl audio 1000/1v2 in thermal but not hot?


They might be using the light to show other problems as well. Or the unit you bought has the same issue??

Double check all your connections, leave it unplugged for 24 hours after hitting the power button several times to drain the capacitors to hopefully clear any codes in the modual.

I blew the fuse inside the fuse block (60A). I replaced it so now I know I have power getting to the amp. I checked it with a meter and I show 12 volts passing throught the fuse block. I can not get the...


Sometimes there is a fuse inside but they are usually thermal and reset when they cool. You said u blew a 60 amp fuse. Is that what the manuf reccomends? Check your remote turn on wire (blue) make sure u have power on the remote wire when you turn the radio on. only thing really left are the grounds

I have a Jl Audio 250/1 mono block amp and the thermal light keeps coming on what could be causing this?


It could be a number of things? 1 to many subs, speakers wired to the amp causing it to overheat and making the thermal light come on. 2 It all depends were your amp is. If it's clear and nothing covering it, obstructing it, Ie sub in front of it, amp inbetween the rear seats and sub.

Thermal light goes away when ground added


Doesn't sound like anything is wrong. If the thermal light is on before you have the ground hooked up then the amp is probably getting a small amount of electrical ground from the shielding on the RCAs or its mounting to the chassis of the vehicle allowing the amp to "barely turn on" (not enough ground). I can imagine this would make the amp think something is wrong (ie: thermal light) . May I suggest that you do not try to turn any amplifier on without ALL appropriate wires connected correctly.

We have Alps MD 1000 which makes a grinding noise when we power it up, and then the error light comes on. Is this normal, or is what could be the problem? Where would we need to send it for repairs?...


All ALPS printers make noise when they are turned on. The error light is not normal. Do you have cartridges in the printer? there are two kinds: ones with gray plastic cassettes and ones with dark blue plastic cassettes. For the 1000, you want the gray ones. Are the cartridges installed correctly? Side B should be facing up.

I have a Rockford Fosgate Puch 1000 watt amp "thermal" problem


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.


If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up without the thermal LED being lit, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still indicates that it's in thermal protection, it needs to be serviced. A local repair shop will be the quickest. Rockford will email you the schematics.
