Amp runs but then will just turn off and red light comes on
My lightning audio amp will run fine for a few minutes but then just shut off and the green light will turn off and red one goes on. If i take out the fuse and put it back in it will start working for a minutes again then turn off. Sometimes it will work for a while but in the end it always ends up turning off. Any ideas?
Re: Amp runs but then will just turn off and red light...
You need to get a fan for it because it does not come wit one and when you get the fan you have to hook it up from the inside by taking the torture tested/bolt sign off and look for a small white pug to attach it to

Also could be that the power wire and earth wires going to amp are to thin amp could be heating up and could be going into protection mode. Will switch on after it cools down what gauge wiring are you using?
check ground cable, check fuse on amp, and check the fuse under the hood, on the positive cable should be about 12' from the battery, if all is well and theres no light, check the blue wire coming from your deck use a tester,if bad you can run one of your fuse box ,place a 12volt switch and hook it to the amp you should be good to go
sounds to me like you are overheating the amp, try down tuning the peak level of the amp, and also if there is anything around the amp clear it away, check if the fan is turning on, you may need to replace it,
Sounds like the amp is going into Protection Mode. Does yours have green LED light then RED LED on it? The green is power and the red is Protection. You will need to either change the OHMS wiring or Put A Fan on it to Keep it Cool Inside.
This is not a ovehaul light. It is called the protect indicator. It kicks in when the amp detects a fault on it's output. Disconnect the speaker / sub. Power up the amp and see if the light goes out. If it does you Sub is toast and needs to be replaced. If it stays on then the amp is done.
