Check this shit out...
On my drive to work this morning I noticed that my bass was crapping out (most likely my amp). I wasn't really listening to anything bassy and I didn't have time to fuck with it since I was heading to work. So I will fuck with it after I get home from work.
So I got home and went out to fuck with it. I checked both fuses, they looked fine. I don't know how the first gens battery is located, but the second gens battery is underneath the engine and next to impossible to get to. So what they did to make it so you can jump start your engine, they added "extentions" to the battery (one for the positive and one for the negative).
Here is a pic of the positive "extension". (labeled battery + jump start)
The amp's power wire is hooked up to this "extension". So I wouldn't fry anything, I disconnected the amp from the battery when I took out the amp's fuse. Well, the fuse was fine and I didn't smell anything that would tell me the amp was fryed. I checked all the connections in case anything was loose. They checked out fine.
Well, it was cold out and it was dark so I gave up trying to figure out what was wrong with it until this weekend. So to be on the safe side and so I could still listen to some music, I left the amp disconnected from the battery. Well, I accidently left the inside dome lights on. I was sure that this didn't run down the battery, but just to be on the safe side I went to start the car. Oh oh. The car wouldn't start. I was like FUCK! I knew the battery still worked because my alarm worked and I could still play the stereo when I turned it to ACC. So for shit and giggles I reconnected the amp to the battery. Would you know it, the car fucking started!!! What the fuck!!!! I know for 100% sure that this is the amp's power wire I disconnected. This wire wasn't there when I bought the car because the amp wasn't there either.
So how the hell could disconnecting the amp's power wire from the battery effect the ignition system!!??
And to top it all off, what the hell is wrong with my amp!
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
