dissaster amp install

Got the boom audio amp installed.

Just about had it back together, everything was cool.....all of a sudden cd sound shuts off. CD still playing but no volume.

take fairing off, sound resumes.

Put back together, try ipod....it works fine. accidentally hit signal and ipod volume cuts off intermittently with signal. Then stereo shuts off. What the heck!!!

Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated

Took amp out of equation...still does the same thing. Beginning to wonder if it was something that happened between the stage 4 kit install and the amp install. Havent had bike stereo on since last day I rode it....so cant really eliminate anything since then.

What do you mean by accidentally hit signal??

Sounds like you have a loose connection somewhere.

Are your grounds all good and tight and clean?

sounds like your haveing a loose connection in there that is getting pulled or pinched when you put the fairing on. make sure everything has wiggle room and the wires are all tight connections

Agree will start by checking all connections. If all works fine without the fairing most have lose plug wire etc.

What I meant by accidentally hit signal, was that I reached over the bars to turn volume up and accidentally turned on the signal light. That's when sound started to cut in and out.

It also does this with the fairing off.

Should the negative wire from amp be grounded or just ran to negative side on battery? Says battery in instructions

Will give all connections and grounds another good look tonight.

Where are all the grounds? Found a couple by the battery. They're tight.

Beginning to wonder if its something in the controls/bars. Doesnt matter if fairing is on or off.

This may be way off, but try it with the bike running, so that you can be sure the system is getting full voltage supplied.

Where did you run the ground to? If it's to the frame make sure there's no paint or powder under it...

No ground. Just ran red to positive terminal and black to negative terminal.
