Having problems with your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee ?
The remote turn on cable in the head unit of my 1996 JGC L has gone dead. I recently installed a 1000W Sony Amp and Sub which have worked great. I connected the REM to the remote turn on for the stereo by solder joint. I tested the volts with the car both on and off to find the remote turn on wire.
Well the amp worked and I had great sound, but a few days later, i realized the amp had stopped working and went to check the problem.
Now the amplifier and the radio have gone dead.
Hello! Check the following fuses; #1 (10A)...#7 (20A)...and #20 (15A)... Fuse #7, which supplies power to the amplifier on the Violet wire, could be inadequate for the new amplifier/sub... If it is fuse #7 that's blown...Open the Violet wire and insert a "digital" amp meter in series...Digital meter has high input impedance...Turn on the system and crank it up...Record the current...If it is very close to 20 Amps you will need to install an in-line fuse with a 5 Amp cushion and jump out the original fuse... If all fuses are OK let me know... Guru............Saailer
