    The only thing that comes to mind is that there may be a problem with the wire coming from the power source. Try connecting the positive wire directly to the positive battery terminal, and make sure you have good ground on the earth wire. Please get back to me if this does not solve your problem. PS could you tell me what amp it is?

Hi. You will have to start with the fuses. If you connected the main power cord from the amp directly to the battery, you will only have to check the fuse on the same line. If however, you connected it to a positive wire inside the vehicle, you will have to locate the fuse box and check them all. If all fuses are fine and still no luck, you may have popped a fuse inside the amp. Hope this helps

    it is a mtx tna251 600w amp and it turns out that the ground for the stereo was not correctly hooked up so it blew the fuse in the amp and i needed a special tool which was rediculous to get the fuse out so that was overlooked but it is now working after that fuse was replaced thanks guys for the help

Amp Turns off after 30 seconds of song play.


Check your ground and make sure it is grounded to metal in your car with no paint. Also, make sure you are running 4 gauge power wire. Another possible cause could be that the ohm load is too low on the amp. Also, if your car battery drops below 10v it will send the amp into protection.

How to remove Panasonic cq-c1301u unit from car


This is an interesting question. As to the fact that you didn't mention what kind of car you have, I can't give you exact instructions, but I can give you approximate instructions. Read all Instructions b4 you do anything and detach battery b4 working on system!!!!!!
1. Most car's require you to remove a dashboard panel, of not the whole thing. (on a side note, the panel on my jeep that has to be removed just pops out).
2. Next you need to unscrew the adapter kit from the car. A lot of older cars put Double DIN headunits into their cars, These are the larger sized headunits. Most after-market systems require a plastic adapter to allow them to fit into the larger space. As long as your new unit is the same size as the older unit, this piece can be reused.
3. Then you must remove the old headunit from the adapter. Most are either screwed in or have pressure pins that hold it in place. Either unscrew or carefully push down the pressure pins until you can remove the old headunit.
4. If you have already purchased the wiring kit, if necessary, then continue onto next step, otherwise purchase appropriate wiring kit for your headunit and car. Do not open wiring kit until you are ready to hook up your new headunit!!!!
5. Find new wiring kit, detach old wiring kit, and hook up new wiring kit according to included instructions. For best reliability, I recommend using wire nuts as electrical tape isn't as relaible and can come apart after a while. If you need to save space and can't use wire nuts, I recommend liquid electrical tape. Let this dry before you go any further.
6. Attach new headunit to adapter and then attach wiring kit to back of the headunit. Make sure to attach radio cord to back of headunit. Push adapter and headunit back into place, adjusting wires as necessary. Screw adapter back into place.
7. Re-attach dash panel back to car, reattaching screws where and if necessary and reattach battery. Power up car and test system.
8. Listen away.

If you cannot get this to work, most places like Best Buys and Circuit City have professionals that have the necessary parts and expertise to exchange headunits in cars and can do this for a small fee. Just replacing a headunit should be relatively cheep. Adding other components as well would be more expensive.

No power


hi, some car amps need a high current remote supply to turn on. first make sure that you are using the proper gauge b+ and gnd cable for this particular rockford amp. then try switching the remtote turn on to this amp thru a simple Relay.(use the remote supply from your headunit as a trigger for the relay). do these connections without connecting any spks or rca line inputs. once amp is switching on then connect all other cables. OR lastly check the main fuse on the RF amp?? cheers

Check your ground wire! Relocate it to another place in the car and try to get a heavier ground wire aswell.

Faceplate not responding / acting very weirdly


Sounds like a bad connection with the faceplate and the multi connector that the faceplate mates with when closed. check for dirt and bent pins on both connectors. Luck
