I have a new Basslink that worked fine for a few days. Now it comes on for about 5 seconds after I turn on the stereo, then just drops out with the power light still on. I have 8 ga. power and ground wires. The power wire goes directly to a power distribution block by the battery. The power light stays on when the unit drops out. I have an auto on and off wire hoked to the white power sensor wire on my amp. The car is a 2000 BMW 528i. I used speaker level wiring and tapped into the 12 pin plug on the amp. Any suggestions?
The auto on switch should only be in the on position when the REM wire is NOT connected. Auto on can be flaky. Basslinks respond better to RCA inputs then the high level ones. You might try getting an RCA line converter, they work very well with the Basslink.

Hello, check the +15v and -15v on the Switching Power Supply Control board. If one or both are missing, it is probably Q117 for +15v and Q118 for -15v. If one is missing the limit comparator will rail to one side and cause the auto variable volume control to trip the servo protection.
I believe the power problem is related to the Remote wire which should be blue or yellow. The remote wire is suppose the turn the Basslink on and off when the radio is turned on and off. The yellow wire is normally used for power antenna. Traditionally the remote wire is blue.
You can use a Speaker level adapter and splice in with the L/R rear speaker wires, and the adapter will convert the speaker level to line level. The output of the adapter will go to the Rear speaker input on the basslink., Write back if you need more detail on the adapter.
Both issues sound like they are related to a non-connected or loosely connected remote wire on the Basslink.
If you're using RCA preamp wires to connect your stereo to the Basslink, make sure the remote wire input on the Basslink is solidly connected to the stereo's remote output.
If you're using the speaker level inputs on the Basslink and not the RCA preamps, make sure the remote input is not connected, as the Basslink will automatically turn on when it senses the speaker level inputs are active.
yes the problem is in the installation.the power supply usually has 2 to 3 positives one positive which is usually red go directly to battery.
the other,either yellow,orange,or blue go to car stereo(not to battery or ignition) this supply,turn off the amp when u turn of the stereo.
hope this help u....
Push/pull on the gain control knob-> That's what went bad in mine. Taping it down works for a while.

It will have to be unsoldered and then install the new one.
It took me a long time to figure this one out. Initially a good knock on the unit would solve it for a few days, then hrs, then minutes.
