Wow man i would just run the remote straight to the amps first off, from what i read it sounds like you uave your remote running to the relay for the parking bypass??? i never did that with a pioneer. just run it straight to the amp before you try anything else. abd as far as the 5v situation at the amp power that sounds way wrong it should be reading what the battery does..
A good general fuse rating is
Rms it will be pushing x #of channels running / 10.
For example a two channel amp that pushes 250 rms to each channel should be fused at 50a
In your example. 100rms x4=400/10= 40. So a 40 amp fuse should do in most situations. Now some amps are more efficient, but as a general rule of thumb this should work
Or you can match total amp fusing so if your amp has two 20a fuses, use a 40a inline fuse
good stuff MutantDreams, I think ill tear open that amp kit now, only problem is I probably wont be able to use the 4 guage wire with the 50amp fuse...right?
well the new 50 amp fuse wouldn't fit in the 4 guage wire so i just rewired with the new amp kit (8 guage) and now the thing is BACK TO LIFE!!! must have been the power wire. THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE HELP!!!
Probably was just your fuse. Those AGU fuses suck and the industry is moving away from them.
