Its in protect mode and

disconnect everything except the power, remote, and ground. turn off then on. if it goes into protect mode then there's a posibility that the amp if fried. check all the speaker inputs and outputs to make sure that there are no stray wires shorting out. if it stays on then you may have a short on a speaker wire or an auxilary input wire. plug each one in one at a time until it goes into protect mode, then that's the shorted wire or it could be a shorted speaker.

I have a nitro bmw412

First that is definitely, the WD40 was completely wrong fluid to use to clean your digital processor. I think that you may have killed it. You can try using 90% alcohol with no additives and a brand new tooth brush. Very carefully and slowly pour alcohol on the processor circuit board. Now dip the tooth brush into the alcohol and brush the circuit board. Then blow the circuit board with air compressor. Get all of the WD40 off the circuit board. You might get lucky and it still may work.

My Nitro BMW-486 Car Audio Amplifier has melted

Is this an external fuse casing? If it is an external fuse casing then you can easily replace this with a new one and make sure that you install the same ampere rating on your fuse

How do i wire three ma audios 12

Firstly, lay all 3 speakers face down next to each other. Note the connections +- +- +-. The first + will go to the amplifier. The next terminal(-) will be connected to the center speaker(+). Take the center speaker (-) and connect to last speaker (+). The last terminal(-) will go to amplifier. Please note that your amplifier has a bridge section which is normally the first + and the last- on the two channels. Connect your woofers on the bridge.

Fuse keeps melting

yes this can be repaired and no you wouldn't have to have an external fuse. What you need to do is first find someone that is good with a soldering iron. Next open the amplifier and look at the area where the fuse holder is located. You want to make sure that the area is clean and that the board is not damaged. To make sure that the area is clean well take some regular rubbing alcohol, 70% or higher,and a small paint brush put the brush in the alcohol and clean the area that was causing the problem regardless if there is any debris or not. This not only cleans the area but also prepares it for the solder job that is to come. Next take your soldering iron out apply solder wick to the board and remove all the old solder on the board. Make sure that you do not lift the pads that the connections are soldered to. after you have removed all the old solder from both the board and the fuse holder place the fuse holder into the slots where it belongs and apply some flux and fresh solder to the area. this will take no time to cool. be careful not to burn the board. After that has all been done put the amplifier back together and test it out. You should not have any problems after that.

My nitro bmw-486 amp plays but want put out loud

I have the same exact amp. And my friend has the smaller 1600 watt amp, and this happened to his. Basically, just start from scratch. Unhook every single wire, and rewire it. If that doesn't work, look at the side of it, and there are a few knobs that you can adjust using a philips head screwdriver. Try adjusting the bass boost knob.
