My punch amp is hooked up to the battery & is grounded.It does not power up so my question is does the remote wire go from the amp to the battery (Which does not have any juice when checked with a tester) or what. Thanks.
The Remote wire should connect to the remote turn on lead from you radio(most aftermarket radios use a blue and white or a blue wire for the remote turn on). This wire will send a 12v signal to the amp from the radio when the radio is turned on. You can disconnect the remote turn on lead from the amp and jump a wire from the terminal marked battery to the remote turn on terminal just to see if the amp powers up. Do not leave it this way however because your amp will not shut off and your battery will go dead.
