The amp in my car constantly stays on when the car is off and the keys are not in the ignition. even without the rem wire hooked up the amp still stays on (not even in protect mode) im pretty much at a loss of what the problem could be
Hi. your amp has an internal power supply fault. problem lies in the remote turn on regulator circuit or with the pulse width modulating circuit.this fault definitely needs to be in technicians hands. cheers

The "rem " as you put it is the remote on . That is what tells the amp to turn on . If the amp is staying on even with the vehicle off you need to change to a keyed 12v source instead of a constant 12 v source as it sounds. Best advice I can give is use a multimeter to find a power source that is off when the vehicle is off and on when you turn it on .
the constant power should be run to the battery. The "turn-on power" should be run to your radio which only comes on by the ignition. If it still comes on then your radio is wired to come on without key. Then you have to check the constant and turn-on wires for it.
accessories is usually the first position of your ignition key when you turn key from off. no ignition lights should be lit and cigarette lighter should work. this is acc circuit.you need to connect acc wire of head unit to this circuit. (can pick it up at cigarette lighter ) but if your looking to wire REM wire to acc ---DON"T--- wire it to the blue wire on back of head unit(rem out)or blue with white stripe.
the memorey wire is yellow. what i did i took another piece of wire. hooked them together an run to my fuse box. find something that stays on, without having to turn the key. tie the wire on one side of the fuse put it back in. turn the key on set one station turn off. wait bout 20seconds turn back on. if it dont work the first time keep trning different fuses till you get it.
ok i cud help u, the color for power wire is yellow or red, front & rear speakers is normally white & gray...the both power wire's , one is constant the other only works when u turn the key, u have too hook ur amp up to find out which is which, constant ur amp will stay on...hope i wasof help
red - switched power (hot when key is on)
yellow - constant power (hot at all times - depending on the vehicle, i've used a direct battery connection, but isn't recommended)
black - ground
blue - power antenna or amplifier 'REM' wire
the other's, i'm working off of old memory....
purple - rear right
green - rear left
white - front right
gray - front left
wires with black stripes are ground, and without are hot
- if you're working on an older car, it sounds like your red and yellow are connected to the same power source. if this is the case, the time will always be resetting.
- if it's a newer vehicle, AND the time is not resetting, the red wire is connected to the wrong source. if the time and stations stay programmed after it shuts off, the yellow wire is correct.
your amps rem wire is hooked to the power antenna wire on your head unit and so when you turn off the radio you would nolonger need an antenna so it powers down and would lower the antenna.Depending on the head unit you should have one output for the power antenna and one for the amp rem......If your head unit doesn't have the rem output you can wire it to the switched wire that powers your head unit but keep in mind the amp will stay on while you have the key in acc or run position even if your head unit is off. hope this helps!
Sounds like you have the Remote turn on hooked to constant 12V instead of a switched power.
The Blue/White wire off the module should go directly to the amplifier remote terminal.
If this has a constant 12V when the key is off, the module is defective and needs to be repaired/returned.
