yo fuse says 32v? that doesnt sound rite
Yeah man that's all it says, there's no other numbering or anything on it. I looked all over it up close under the light LOL.

I mean, I'm sure it's the right fuse for the cable... It came with the cable. I got one of those sets that comes with the blue power cable, the remote wire, the ground, etc...

I know I'm just making things harder for myself by not taking it somewhere, but the fact it worked for so long like almost 2 years in this car with no problems make me think that everything was right. I'm just hoping to save some money and learn something at the same time by troubleshooting it myself.

the 32v is probably some sort of id # or model #. nothing in a car should be higher than 17v. and thats with modifications. a cars electrical system is a "12v" system which is actually about 14.4 from the alt but 12 from the battery.

try replace the fuse under the hood, if that doesn';t work then definately bring your amp in and have them bench test it. or just briung the car in and have them look it over. it still sounds like either a connection issue or the amp is pretty much shot and is blowing the fuses

Yeah, it's not blowing the fuses on the amp anymore it's just not turning on, LOL.

I'll take your advice though.

EDIT: On one audio forum someone told me I probably blew turn on circuit in my head unit which I REALLY don't want to hear, this deck cost me a few hundred and is less than a year old.

Ghost, my deck does work, but someone suggested that there is a circuit inside the deck that is in control of the remote wire and it might have been shorted? I seriously doubt that's the issue, but I don't like to hear that.

Fresh, do you think that it needs to be turned down even though it's been working fine for 2 years now? I'll certainly consider your advice though.

Since the remote turn on the amp,have you tried running a new remote wire,possible it got crimped a bit or cut....

yeah if there's a slight cut int he remote wire it will keep the amp from turning on. i had that problem with my diamond audio d5300.2. put a cover over it and it was fine

Well, I discovered something new yesterday since I actually had some spare time on my hands. I took the backseat appart to reveal my power cable and it has what appears to be some significant darkening in certain areas which leads me to a.ssume they are burn marks.

Now, obviously if the power cable is destroyed the amp will not function. However, that leads me to a new question. Could this issue that I had with the fuse on the amp constantly blowing out be tied in with this burnt power cable... if so how? I don't want to replace the power cable only to destroy another one, what could be a cause of this?

Aything is possible,grab a multimeter and see if you can check for continuity(sp?) on the power line.Cheapest and easiest thing you can do to see if thats the problem.

While you have the backseat out,check the ares where you saw the burn marks on the power wire...

Yeah we are going to run the test this week, I'll let everyone know how it turns out...

the fuses blowing probably caused the power wire to burn up. like shyne said test with a multimeter. i'd probably jsut replace the power wire whether or not you get current through it. no point in keeping a burnt power wire. i'd also upgrade the size when you swap out the power cable. but make sure you upgrade your ground as well
