No. The LED should be off when the radio is off (amp turns off as well)

It sounds like you have constant 12volts applied to your remote turn on lead. The amplifier will have 3 connections for power:

1. 12volt constant
2. chassis ground
3. 12volt switched power - this wire should come directly from your head unit. It only sends 12 volts when the radio is on allowing to amp to power up only when the radio is on.

i would check the speaker cables to see if something came disconnected first maybe wire i touching other terminal shorted out the channels output .

run a new set of rca cable to see if one use are bad . check to see if rca cables pluged into right output of radio . check to see if your remote wire is powering up the amp to turn on the amp ..

will still light up with battery power but will never put output to the speakers with out the remote turn from the radio ... how to check this is to disconnect the cable at the amp and take a short 18 gauge wire and strip both ends and touch the battery terminal at the amp terminal one end the other end where the remote wire is mounted on the amp if do this for a few seconds to see what happens or better yet buy a digital volt meter and check for 12volt a the remote wire when you turn on your radio

Get a 1.2F, 13.8V and above Capacitor to make your power stable and prevent your lights from blinking together with the music.

OK, depending on where exactly you live, i would suggest that you take your amp to your nearest auto audio repair store.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

That's bnecause your amp is loosing power that easily... Get a capacitor with 1.2F, 13.8V or above to stabilize your power.

you should not have any spark from your ground...you may want check and make sure your ground is properly installed. Try wiring the amp without the cap and see if that works.

Have you confirmed that you have a good signal feeding the amp?

Have you confirmed that the speakers are in good working order and don't have any breaks in the wiring?

Make sure you got a good ground. do not ground on painted surfaces! If you got power from battery, check the remote wire running to cd player. Hook up remote blue wire with the one for cd player. If you still have a problem and the fuse is good, then the amp is fried

First - disconnect ALL wires.... Power, Ground, Remote, RCA, Speakers.

Reconnect only power, and ground, and remote wire - being extra careful there are no wire strands sticking out of the terminal.

Now power on the amplifier.
If the fuse on the amplifier blows - the problem is internal and should be repaired by an electrical repair shop familiar with Car Audio Amplifiers.

That is a Semiwell part I believe. It is an N-Channel power mosfet. Go look on their website they may have an alternate part you can use.
