I'm getting 12.5 at the power post (amp) and .1 for the remote turn on lead (at amp) when head unit is on.

I've got a 4channel and 2 channel bridged both stopped simultaneously. Working @ lunch 2 days ago and then wouldn't turn on @ 5:00.

Fuses are fine.

How much do you need from the remote lead to turn on the amplifiers? I can't think of anything else… both dying at the same time seems a little too coincidental.

Thanks for any ideas.

Did your ground break free?

remote turn on is usually 12v also.

Disconnect the remote lead, put a wire on the amp from the 12V+ to the remote turn on terminal. The amp should turn on and work normally. If it does, the issue is in the remote turn on lead or head unit.. If it doesnt, then its the amp or the grounds.

You cant leave it like this, the amp wont turn off.

Yes I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be 12v at the remote wire

Wow… so in the end, some how the remote wire made it way inbetween the e brake lever (which I use when parking on inclines). The pinching had worn away the jacket and the wire was grounding on the metal of the lever.

Lesson learned and the wire is tucked deeper behind the plastic trim now.

Thanks for the help.
