Default nothing works right... ever...

ok so my amp has been goin on and of for a while now...

when i say that i mean, its staying on but nothing is coming out of the subs. so i ran a new rca wire becuase that one was crimped. that fixed it a little, but now it still happens, a little less often, but also my antenna no longer goes up or down. it makes the noise like its going to. but it dosent move. its stuck in the up position basically.


any advice?

I've got a problem where my amp powering my subs doesn't always turn on immediatly, will kick on a fter a minute or two with a sudden dimming of anything that is lit and click through the speakers. I think it may have something to do with my capacitor. It shows around three volts until the amp kicks on.

The antenna? I dunno, frozen?

Im not sure how our antennae are built, but if the motor still runs, then either the gear fell off the motor or its misaligned or something. a replacement from the wrechers might be your best bet, I think they are sealed up pretty well.

is it an aftermarket HU? me thinks remote wire/ antenna wire may be bad or wired incorrectly?
