Check the wires for short circuiting at the car body or speaker wires. Triple check really everything. Make sure the connectors are 100% connected to the wires. There maybe some resitance if the amp isn't getting enough power from the battery.
Well normally a light near the controls and or where you put the wires for subs is the continuous power. There is a wire from the back of your stereo that need to be ran to the amp. It tells the amp when to turn on and off so it doesnt drain your battery.
Hello, first the ESP is for communicating with Directed security systems. If your fuse blew then your amp may have a security feature that disables the amp. The new Directed amps have these features. You need to read your manual or see if you can download one. You should be able to take care of it that way. If you do get it unlocked cause of a security feature and it still does not work, then you are having some internal component problems. I do amp repairs for a living. I own a car audio installation and amp repair shop. I'm the cheapest amp repair you will find anywhere. So if it turns out to be more than you can handle I can repair it for you if interested.
If it is not turning on your problem is it is not getting power. Check your fuses. The reason an amp goes into protect mode is usually because the subs are not wired up right. Make sure your fuses are good, you have a good ground, and make sure your amp turn on wire didn't come loose when you were putting the deck back in. As for the amp going into protect you probably wired the subs down to too few ohms and the amp you have can't handle it. Try hooking the subs up straight w/o bridgeing them and turn it up to see if it works. If you don't have problems with it then you wired your subs wrong.
if you are sure its the amp. the problem is internal. but if your not sure, try a different stereo or source of sound to the inputs of the amp. if there is still no sound than it is the amplifier and it could be a number of things.
