    audiobahn amp assistance

    i installed a audiobahn amp and this is whats going on...

    after connecting the power and ground i went to plug in the remote-- it touched the amp dammit and made a small spark ( i had the radio on) -- all the fuses are fine and the radio remote is giving 12v along with batt 12v -- but the amp protection light is Red instead of Blue..

    i checked the manual -- it says an amp short - speaker short -- or over heating..

    If it was shorted out at least the fuses would have popped... any suggestions ?
    brand new amp go bye bye ? ? ?

    Worst case is that you shorted your amp. It kind of sounds like that since the fuses are intact. Don't take any chances. Try to return it for a new unit or RMA it through Audiobahn, if possible. When I install car audio, I always disconnect the battery, to avoid anything like that happening. Good luck.

    always make sure that u have ur power unplugged when u are installing audio.
    just get a new one return or RMA depending on where u got it, then install it again jsut unplug the batt.
    good luck!
