Hi, Assuming you have been using the unit already for some time, it is possible that: 1. (Agree with you) The ground might have loosen up, re tighten the connection points and make sure that if it is chassis/body grounded, there is no paint/corrosion between the grounding lug and the point of connection. Better still,wire at least a #14 autowire from the amp's body to the negative of your battery; 2. check and verify that the speakers connected to the amp are good; 3. The speaker wirings might be touching the car's chassis or grounded somewhere. Check where the speaker wires pass and leads to visually making sure that no bare/scraped wire touched any metal part of the car; and/or 4. The amp itself might be at fault and would require the services of a qualified professional. Hope this gives you some ideas and work out for you. Good luck and pls post back how things are and/or if you need further information. Kind regards.

How do i fix my Power Acoustik LT-980/2 car amp, it keeps on going into protect mode.


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty . .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

The light is red and no bass is coming out of my subs


The Amp Is Most Likely In Protection Mode... 2 Ways To Figure Out Whats Wrong With it Is Check Every Single Wire And Make Sure That Every thing Is Hooked Up Correct And There Are No Bad Connections With Ur Remote Wire, Ground Wire, And Battery 12v Wire, Rca Cables As Well. If Every Thing Checks Out Good Then Try Checking The Fuses And Make Sure u Are Using The Correct Fuses That Are Good For That Amp. If U try These 2 Things And You No Your Subs Are Hooked Up Correctly Then The Worst Is Probably There. I Had The Pioneer 7200 Amp And It was A Blown Amp And The Red Light was Constantly On. No Sound No Nothing. If U Try Those Steps And it Still Does Not Work Then Most likely Your Amplifier Is Toast. Hope This Helps :-)

Its in protect mode and wont go back to normal


disconnect everything except the power, remote, and ground. turn off then on. if it goes into protect mode then there's a posibility that the amp if fried. check all the speaker inputs and outputs to make sure that there are no stray wires shorting out. if it stays on then you may have a short on a speaker wire or an auxilary input wire. plug each one in one at a time until it goes into protect mode, then that's the shorted wire or it could be a shorted speaker.

Kole kx2-1440 wiring da amp up right


It is correct to connect the amp turn on wire to the amplifier remote. 5V is sufficient to turn most amplifiers on... It should be 12V optimally.
If the amplifier is not turning on with the ant. remote, the problem is with the amplifier.

Protection light grief


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Vibe is mediocre. Time to invest in an old school Lanzar Opti Drive amp. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. protection-light-grief-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg

Protect light will not turn off!?


In most cases when the protect light is lit, the amplifier's output transistors have failed.

If the amplifier goes into protect with no speaker wires connected to it, it's likely in need of repair.

This amp is similar to many of the planet audio class D amplifiers. These amplifiers have quite a few problems. If the amplifier has failed, it needs to be serviced by someone who is familiar with the amplifier.

Do not repeatedly replace the fuses. It will lead to more damage and a more expensive repair.
