need help with stereo installation

ok im hooking up a amp/sub in the jeep. I have my wires ran and my ground is good along with my power (when you touch the ends of both they spark pretty good) and the amp lead is hooked up but my amp wont power up..checked all fuses and still not gettin anything. Thought it might be fuses, tried all fuses on amp in in the whole car and still nothing..ay ideas?

Re: need help with stereo installation

ok it was christmas eve a-hole haha and my brother wanted me to get it hooked up as much as i did..the problem was i needed to hook the remote wire up to a fuse, not the back of the CD player like the directions said on the connector package.

Re: need help with stereo installation

If i understood you your wrong

if the remote isnt on switched power it will run your amp constantly, hello dead battery. the remote is an on signal from the radio saying "turn on" to the amp, if you have it to key off power its saying "ah hell, lets stay on even though no one is near the car"

Re: need help with stereo installation

yeah i have the wire running to a fuse that shuts it off when i turn the car off..some of the fuses turn the amp off, some dont, i had to do this with my last jeep and i just figured it would shut off no matter which fuse i used, not the case, hello dead battery

Re: need help with stereo installation

Next time you do anything electrical in your Jeep I would recommend investing in a decent volt meter, so you can test your wires that way, instead of touching wires together looking for sparks. Like said above that's a good way to fry stuff for no reason.
