It sounds like the capacitor is connected backwards (+/- polarity) or is defective..

After tapping into the ignition wire to connect the remote wire for a amplifier the 15 amp fuse keeps blowing when I try to start the car. What should I do?


a car amplifier should use an outdoor 2or so gague (very thick_) wire, ran, not to the fusebox, but to the battery, with a 20-30 amp under the hood, within a foot of the battery. the amperage your fuse will rewquire is based on the formula amps= wattsdivided by volts. a 240 watt amp on a 12 volt line would need a 20 amp fuse, just for the amp alone.

I think i blew a fuse on my kicker zx300.1 amp, where is it so i can change it?


The fuse should be in line with the live power cable that goes from the amp to the car battery. You should be able to replace it by buying a new fuse that matches the blown fuse. You will take out the blown fuse (usually within 2 feet of the car battery) and replace it with the new one.

My KAC9105D wont turn on? i had this amp stolen from me a week ago, purchased a new one and hooked it back up to the same wires that had been running the old one the exact same way, and it just lies there...


check your fuse on your power wire, should be under the hood by the battery. if the fuse is good then check to make sure you have a good ground and power on the remote turn on wire. it sounds like a blown fuse though, hope this helps. dave

Amp keeps blowing fuses (alpine mrdm1001


Hello prabh_dusanj,

First make sure that the amp is not operating into too low of an impedance. If the load is OK, it's most likely a short in the output transistors.

Hope this helps.

Keep blowing fuse under hood when i put power wire in to amp


disconnect the negative battery terminal, replace the fuse with all the wires hooked up to the amp and reconnect the battery terminal, that way the initial surge of power goes through the negative terminal and not your inline fuse. That should solve your problem.

may have blown an output transistor. Remove the wires from the speaker terminals and see if the problem still persists. If the light comes on with no load, it will need servicing by a technician.

My amp is turning on but!!!


you probably blew it up. Whenever you smell that smell it is almost always a capacitor in there that blew.

Amp not working correctly goes into protection


Disconnect the speaker wires from the amplifier and see if it still goes into protection mode. If it still goes into protect with the speakers disconnected, there's a problem with the amp; if not, you may have a blown speaker or a shorted speaker wire.
