Question about Profile AP1200 Car Audio Amplifier
It's not the amp that is the problem, since i swapped it into my old car, and it powered my subs fine. but i cant seem to find the problem. All the wires have been hooked up right, the ground is attached to bare metal on the chasis, and the power to the battery and inline fuse is hooked up, and the remote is run to the blue/right wire on my head unit. I thought the problem was the ground leading to paint behing the mounted bolt i chose, but i sanded down the paint and it is on bare metal. Then i thought that the amp was not getting enough power since i shared it with my sattilite radio power wire too, but i disconnected it and it still doesnt power the amp. There is an alarm system that came with the car when i bought it that also shares the battery positive, but i know nothing about the system, and im sure that it doesnt require any power except when i turn it on/off. The amp is running two 10" alpine type s subs, and like i mentioned before, it workes fine with tthe wire setup in my old car. The car is a 1999 toyota solara, and if anyone knows anything, please HELP!! Im out of solutions!!!
Well if the remote is connected to the radio then i think u shouldnt dissconnect the radio. try some other ground. sometimes not all bolts and nuts are good gounding. try the truck latch or something.

The only effective way to troubleshoot this is with a digital multimeter. Test for voltage on the power terminal and the remote terminal (using the ground terminal for your black probe). If you have voltage on both terminals, check the amp's built-in fuses; if they're good, then you must have a defective amp. If you have voltage on the remote terminal, but none on the power terminal, check your fuse and fuse holder at the front. It's not unusual to have a blown or defective fuse that looks okay.
