Power light on the amp goes on after 5 sec off ultra linear 1200
The problem. when i turn my stereo on ( is connected with the remote blue wire stereo & amp ) the power light on the amplifier goes on, after 5 seconds shuts off, i had run a 10 gauge wire directly to the 12 v battery in a honda civic.
also if i bridge the power + to the remote (in the amplifier ) it does the same turns on for a 5 seconds then off
Re: power light on the amp goes on after 5 sec off ultra...
If you run the remote from the battery you will need a on/off switch. Sounds like the amp is overheating. Also, I don't understand bridge the remote and power. They should be seperate going into the amp.

It sounds you are using an amplifier and using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on). Try hooking up the blue/white wire to turn your amp on. When leaving tuner mode, the blue wire shuts off, turning off the amplifier.
+ positive from battery ground is of course - anywhere on body put it on last.to avoid sparks if + is powered up! U can put a link between remote and positive it should then be on. Led normally goes blue rca s need a signal from stereo make sure its a amp out or sub out not an input on stereo set all knobs to middle and if speaker is connected to amp speaker + - it should be on, try an mp3 player with jack to rca for testing a known signal.amp may have loop rca make sure its on inputs.some have high inputs too using speakers wire stick with rca
There is a short or wires are touching, Then again it could be because the remote(Blue wire) From amp to stereo which tells it to turn on and off has been connected to the wrong wire and is not working effectively.
Check for any shorts check all wires from both ends it shouldn't take long and make sure no wires are even slightly touching.
The remote wire is supposed to be connected to the remote output on the back of the head unit that is feeding the amp. Without the remote wire hook up the amp will not turn on. Reason for this is, the Head Unit tells the AMP to turn on, without the remote connected the AMP is going to do nothing, find the remote switch wire on the back of your Head Unit and run the wire to the remote input on the AMP.
The acc means a power on connection when you turn on the key..On your amp you'll see a blue wire or a connection that says remote..Then find a connection on the car that when the key is turn on or when the radio turns on it turns your amp on for you threw that wire..Hope this helps you...
on the back of he cd player is the wire harnest there should be a SOLID blue wire on there take the remote wire connect it to that and run it to your amp and put it where the amp says remote. there is an easier way you can hook up your power to the amp then take the remote wire and just run it directly to the power wire on the amp you should only need a couple inches of wire and it will work fine
It should have a blue wire from the harness on the back of the player for turning on the amp, it may also be labeled "antenna" or "power antenna" or "P con". That is the one to run to the remote turn on of the amp.
im having the same problem with my amp, I took it to best buy and they said the amp was recieving power and recieving signals from the deck and i had everything hooked up right but that in the circuit board all the connections were blown, meaning i have a blown amp, i hope this isnt your problem but it definetly sounds like it. GOODLUCK
The power antenna wire only supplies 12vdc when the radio is on. When CD or other sources are selected, the power antenna wire goes to 0vdc. The remote turn-on wire provides 12vdc whenever the head-unit is on. If your amps are powered on only when the radio is turned on, I would bet that you have the power antenna wire connected and not the remote turnon wire.
