    Unhappy Amp decided not to work!

    hi all, i took my amp out about 2 months ago, and it was all working perfectly.

    I tried to put it back in today and it wont turn on. I've checked the 12v, gnd and the Remote turn on. and all seems to be fine. I thought it was the remote turn on, but that shows a 0.6volt charge when the head unit is on.

    anyone have an idea of what it maybe?



    everything seems to be going wrong all the car all at once

    0.6v isn't right on the remote out, should be closer to 12v IMO

    Yeah

    Make sure you haven't got the battery and remote lead the wrong way round either on your amp as i've seen that done before

    Check it at the back of the headunit, maybe unplug it there and see what voltage your getting on the remote out from the headunit. If your running a sony headunit make sure your on the remote out and not the electric aerial output. While your at the headunit you can connect the remote out that goes to the amp to say the permament live just to make sure with the headunit on the amp works

    Try putting 12v on the amp's remote terminal
