You blew a fuse. check the fuse for the dome light or interior power (whatever its labeled as) under the hood of the car. if its a 10amp minifuse and it blows again, replace it with a 20amp minifuse.

let me know if this helps.

How do I bypass the factory monsoon amp on a 2001 chevy camaro?

Every time I've done an install an a Monsoon system, I've run new speaker wires. It's the easiest way to bypass the amp because I don't believe there's anyway to integrate it. You should be able to locate the constant and ignition wires in the factory harness with a multimeter and tap into those.

Hope this helps

Can the orange/white illumination wire from the factory plug be tied into the red or yellow wire? My harness does not have any other available wires.

the illumination wire is for your dash lights so you can dimm the light on your deck. your best bet would be to go to the car audio store and buy a wire harness for 15$ this will convert your in dash factory plug to an after market plugg for your deck.

Whats best after market system to replace bose system installed in my audi tt roadster 2002

it all depends on how much you are willing to spend and what kind of features you are looking for. at this point in time, alpine, kenwood and pioneer are some of the better brands on the market. eclipse is good also, but hard to find.

My base power kept reseting itself it semmed as i have a base controller in the front and the light goes on and off, as well as my deck keeps restarting as well, now my amp does not poer on at all but the...

The problem is with your charging system, meaning the battery, alternator, and all existent power loads on your vehicle such as interior lights, head lights, air conditioner, etc...

If this is correct, you can easily verify it by playing a song that you are familiar with, especially the bass lines, and noting when the power is lost to your subs and head unit. If the bass and head unit resets just as a hard bass note is about to play or it plays for a couple seconds, then indeed the problem lies in your charging system. What this means is that your car's battery and alternator cannot physically handle the extra load of your Kicker L7.

I recommend replacing the battery since it is the cheapest route. The best battery to replace it with would be an Optima yellow top, as this is a dry cell battery and would give you the best results, but simply a new battery should help out quite a bit.

Make sure you fully charge the battery before trying out your subs again.

If the power still seems to be cutting out after replacing the battery, you might after to consider replacing the alternator, but that is usually a last ditch effort unless you are into competitions, because it can get rather expensive. You would have to search for high output alternators.

Hope this helps!

Starter fuse under the hood keeps blowing....the factory deck was replaced by a new deck...every since then the ignition fuse keeps blowing..

the new radio install is causing this if the power was taped into the starter system. rec. removing wires then try to see if you can blow your starter fuse

Radio works intermittent - 0603 code / CHECK on the display

Some can go into "security mode" if power was lost. Popping sound doesnt sound good to me, VW often has seperate amp under driver dash. Id check all power sources but I bet the error code is mech failure.
