I have a 1200 watt Sony Xplode Amp and 2 12in. Subs...When we first installed them, they worked for about 5 min. then the amp turned off...So I thought the amp broke, so I got a new one, we installed that, it worked for a couple min. then turned off.!!! What is going on???
Ok...I have a saturn sc2 which is mostly plastic, but on the inside of the trunk at the top of it, there is where I put the ground wire. The remote wire is attatched to the cd deck and goes back and hooks into where the remote wire goes. When I checked the remote wire and the ground wire with the 12 volt checker thing they lit up. When i checked the ground wire it wasn't as bright as it was with the remote wire...Could that be my problem and could this cause it to go on, but turn off later?
okay i kinda had the same prob. are there bolts that hold the lil hydrolics shocks (or whatever they are called) that hold your trunk open, and if so are they metal? if so then try hooking your ground wire to that and see what happens. it looks ghetto, but it might work. and then you will know if it is your ground wire. sorry if it doesnt make much sense.
I have a saturn sl2 and in the trunk I found an awesome place to ground stuff. When you open the trunk, look straight down and off to your right or left and look for 2 bolts(should be 2 on each side). You can loosen the nuts on these, and they work perfect for grounding.
