double check your ground. I know you say its grounded to the chassis but check it again, i thought mine was too and after an hour i moved my ground to a different place and bam power!

I second checking the ground wire. And i would double check the fuse you used for your remote wire.

(You did remember the fuse in the power wire didnt you? I have made that mistake......)

fuses make sure your fuses on the amp wire from your battery and any on the amp itself are good

if you have a volt meter turn the truck on and the meter the connections at the amp and verify that you have power on both the remote and positive battery and then you can also check to see how much resistance is on the chassis ground. if you have a high resistance then your ground is not very good. hope this helps.

the remote wire generally is wired to the blue wire coming out of the back of your radio, check the in-line fuse on the positive wire and make sure you have a good ground connection.

Sorry for the delayed response guys been busy as sin. I got her working I made a rookie/bonehead mistake. I accidentally touched the + and - wire together while checking for power but had not installed remote wire yet to verify amp power so being a new fuse block i didnt think to check the fuse after arcing the wires and sure as $hit i blew it. Changed fuse and the rest is history. I decided on my install to run the remote wire to a toggle switch so I can turn the subs off when my daughter is in the truck. Also I order my single 12 driverside truck box and it will be here on thursday so YEAH!!! Then its on like donkey kong.

I would like to install a florescent light to activate when the amp is on but the amp is under the Driver seat so that might not get to happen since i wanted to install the light under the rear seat.
