    In the future, please refrain from typing in all caps, it hurts the eyes and denotes you yelling at the reader.

    Are you working with an aftermarket head unit or the stock unit?

    Check the amp, is there a protection light? If so is it on?

    The remote wire needs to be ran to the power anntenne if you have an aftermarket HU or it needs to be wired to the ignition system if your using the stock stereo... the remote wire basically just tells the amp to turn on and off with the car, otherwise it would always be on.... your problem sounds more like a ground issue if the power to the amp is intermittent...

    Just run a short jumper wire from the power input on the amp to the remote input and see if the amp functions correctly. Thats a fast way to verify that it is the remote wire that is the problem before you dig too deep into it.
