Default God damn amp. HELP ASAP!!!!!!!!!

Okay, so I connected the friggin' control system wire, then I turn on the truck. And woop de friggin do, it doesn't work. Why the hell won't this f-ing thing work? I have it connected to the battery, I have it connected to the god damn head unit. I'm not so sure the ground is good though. Could a bad ground prevent if from turning on? I have all of the speakers connected to it. My voltmeter broke so I have to go get a new friggin' one. I spent all afternoon yesterday, and most of this morning trying to get that damn amp to even turn on, I still haven't even had any luck. The power light hasn't even been on yet.

Ya a bad ground will pretty much kill the whole thing. Make sure it'* attached to a clean, UNPAINTED surface. Paint isn't the best conductor.
