I have a sony head unit and an ARC 4 channel amp in my 2012 FLTRXSE. The amp stays running and kills my battery. I use the blue turn on wire from the radio, and the positive and negative come straight from the battery to the amp. Even if I power the radio down the amp fan still runs. Any ideas?

The fan may be run off the main battery power . It may run regardless of the amp being turned on, it might be controlled by a thermostat.
I'd read the small print in the user manual on the amp if I were you. If not , what he said. ^^^

I had the same issue with a different brand amp, Called them sent it back and the amp was replaced under warranty. They told me this was a rare occurrence but that's how my luck goes. Good luck to you.

The amp should shut off when the ignition is turned off. The remote wire from the cig light is what shuts the amp off.
