Make sure the red wire is still connected or make sure the red wire hasn't been severed. Also, check the fuses located in the engine compartment. The red wire connects accessory terminal in the fuse block. Also check the fuses in the cabin. This fuse box is typically located on the driver's side, at knee level, next to the door panel, and underneath the dashboard. As a last resort, the unit can be taken to an authorized or factory service center.

as your sub is only rated to 400w rms simply connect the sub to either a or b channel outputs you may wish to use an rca splitter before the amp to feed both left and right audio channels into a single channel on the amp. WARNING connecting both channels on the amp to the sub will overload the sub and possibly blow it up so i highly recommend not doing so.

i'd need more info but from what you've stated, sorry to break it to you but it sounds likely you've incorrectly wired you speakers and blown your amp. this will prove no doubt an expensive mistake and learning exercise.

AudioBahn Car... | Answered on Jun 03, 2018


to drop the amp load to 1 ohm you need to divide the output signal path and the best way is by wiring a second woofer in parallel as seen in the ideal diagram attached this has the desired effect of doubling the volume .
since 2 ohm divided by 2 is 1 ohm load connected to your amp.
so the short answer is no you can't do that with a single woofer

sounds like a thermal overheat protect issue, sorry to break it to you but sadly the way most amps are built these days it's either not worth the cost of trying to repair or impossible to do so by hand. you'd be better off just getting a new amp

Generally there are 2 parts to this problem

part 1
input signal as these woofers are just subs remember to give them a low line in signal before the amp (see diagram) i like to use rca low pass crossover filters from harrison labs (see link)

part 2
is the wiring configuration of the 2 woofers by wiring them in parallel as shown in the diagram you reduce them to a 2 ohm load for your 2 ohm amp meaning you'll get max loudness and efficiency

unfortunately if you only have the one woofer there isn't really any safe way to do so but if you had a pair of woofers you could in theory wire them in parallel thus creating only a 3 ohm load but your amp must be able to work at such low ohms otherwise you WILL blow up your amp.

If it displays LOCKED 3 then leave it SWITCHED ON UNDISTURBED for as long as it takes to automatically reset itself.

Make sure you have the correct code

However if it says LOCKED 13 then your radio is fully locked (due to 13 or more wrong codes being entered previously ) and can only be reset by the Main Dealer or a Radio Decoding Service

While the machine is on, put the old toner back into the machine, close the front cover. Open the front cover and replace it with the new toner. Make sure new toner is shake well.

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect itagain, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your carradio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. Ifyou do not have this code you need to go to your Nissan servicecentre and get them to enter this code for you.

hey from London.

It is saying WAIT 1 HR because the wrong code is being entered.

Leave it SWITCHED ON for an hour and it will reset itself

Make sure you have the correct code 

read below if you do not have the code
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc)
 
 
To see if your code is available here  for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .
 
If not then POST A BRAND  NEW  QUESTION
 
quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING
 
Also quote the MAKE of CAR
 
note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number
 
Otherwise try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive
