Question about JBL GTO1004 Car Amp

1 Answer

I have a JBL1004 amp in my ski boat. I killed the battery listening to the stereo and caused the battery to lose a cell and drop to 10 volts. The stereo cut out as one would expect. I have replaced the battery. Now when i turn on the stereo it works fine for approx 5 minutes then the amp "protect" light comes on and the amp cuts out. The other two amps in the boat work fine. Any suggestions?

If the protect light comes on then you might not have enough voltage running to the amp so you would need to add a second battery just for that amp.

1992 kawasaki sc jet ski kill switch red button and lanyard kill switch will not shut down ski. Have to undo battery cable to get motor to stop.


The kill switch and the lanyard all do the same thing, they direct the power at the coils to earth. You have a disconnect somewhere. First place to check with a meter is right below the buttons and check that you have no continuity with the button up and continuity when the button is pressed. Then follow the wiring harness and check the connectors.

2005 Saturn vue wants to fire but won't. Battery reads 12.2.volts prior to starting and drops to 9 volts when trying to start. replaced cap and it started on first try. it had a rough idle before...


Unfortunately the answers you have given for replacing a cap is too vague. Is it a gas cap, radiator cap, air conditioning service port cap.... Look the battery needs charged that is why the battery drops to 9 volts, a good charged battery should drop to 10 volts. Check your battery terminals or cables for corrosion. Do a voltage drop tests on both positive and ground cables. As far as not starting any more...do you mean not cranking as in no starter eengagement or cranking but not running? If it is not running listen to hear in the first 10 seconds to the fuel pump relay if it engages or listen for fuel pump...is the car getting spark?

1999 Yamaha GP760 is completely dead. Battery reads good but ski wont even turn over. It ran perfect last season ( fresh water).


1-Please check your battery terminals that they are installed correctly(Polarity check).

2-Check ski's fuse box if any. try to trace the fuse which is installed on wires coming from battery.

3-Take a Multi Meter and set it to DC volts testing and put the probs on battery (Red + to battery + and Black - to battery -) and note the reading, if battery is good then it should give you 12+ volts on meter screen. then leave the meter connected to battery terminals and press the ignition switch and at the same time note the volts read on Multi meter screen note if there is any drop in volts below 11.8 or more.

Great white trolling motor,bow mount,24 volt, 82lb thrust / big problems! Burned up Marinco plug,replaced plug,recetacle,fuses on. batteries, tech says motor runs fine on bench,but not on boat. Getting 24...


The heat is developed from to much resistance from batteries to TM, check for loose/corroded connections at batteries, including the jumperwire, also check the size of wire from battery to plug, should be at least 8 gauge if not 6 gauge depending on the length of run. If corrosion has built up inside the wires this will also cause high resistance causing excessive heat build up. I would prolly just replace boat wiring to make sure none of the above problems are present. Use tinned copper marine grade wire that is multi stranded.

I have a clarion cz100 hooked up to a 1000 watt autotek amp and it is connected to a red top optimum battery. When i turn it up to BUMP it if im not moving the stereo will shut off. I had it hooked up to a...


some stereos will shut off if the voltage drops below 12 volts. measure your voltage at the battery with the car at idle and stereo turned up and all accesories and lights on. you should have 14.4 volts with the car running. the batteries voltage is 12.6 volts so you have to have more than this to be able to maintain steady voltage to your components. if the voltage drops too low when the bass hits it can shut off your radio. a capacitor can help this and the safe number is 1 farad for every 1000 watts. if you plan on adding any other amps autotek and phonix gold both make a digital capacitor that is compact and go anywhere from .5 farad to 10. the bigger the cap the better. if your voltage readings are ok then check that your speaker output wires are not touching.

Amplifier cutts out when I hit my tilt trim button on my boat


Check all the speaker wire connections because the stereos will go into protection mode if you're losing or causing an unwanted grounding.. even on the speaker connections..

Check the voltage on the pink wire on the starter selonoid. Should have at least 10 volts while cranking, if voltage drops below 10V change the batteries, I had the same problem.

If a boat is anything like a car, the amp's negative post should not be connected to the battery, but to the ground of the boat. In a car, the entire chassis is grounded to the negative terminal, so when you run a line from the positive terminal of the battery to the positive post on the amp, and a line from the negative post on the amp to the chassis it is a complete circuit. I highly recommend placing a fuse on the positive line from the battery to the amp. Wiring this way prevents the amp from blowing up your battery, as well as prevents the battery from blowing your amp. Hope it works.

Volume turned up, kenwood shuts off briefly...


I had this same exact problem when my last older Kenwood Marine stereo cooked itself while I had it up loud for a few weekends on the lake. (smelled like it had burned inside). I went out and bought a new Kenwood KMR-550u stereo deck. (I do not have an additional amp). I hooked it up to the exact connections where my older Kenwood stereo unit had been hooked up, as I never had a problem with this for the past three years until it failed after smelling of burning elelectrical. I had chalked the problem up to heavy rain we had one day. Every time I turned up the volume, sometimes up to 27 out of 35 possible, or 29, or 32, the stereo would suddenly shut off as if I had turned it off. After a few seconds the stereo would come back on, but unless I was quick enough to turn down the volume it would do it again right away. Of course on a boat, we were beached in a cove and the engine was not running when I encountered this. I searched the internet finding hundreds of similar complaints and several dozen theories of all types, but only a couple that pointed me towards the power (voltage) idea as the problem. I put a volt meter on the positive & negative wires powering the stereo. I watched as I gradually turned up the volume, the voltage on the power wire gradually decreased from 12.5 volts, down into the 11 range, and as it hit 10.9 or 10.8 volts it shut off typically around a volume of 32. The red power wire in my boat that never seemed to have an issue with my old stereo until it fried was determined to actually be inadequate for the power flow for the new Kenwood, and probably was the culprit of my failed older unit. I offer this sound advice: Run a new pair of positive & negative wires directly from the battery (with an appropriate fuse of course (the deck has a 10 amp fuse in it's back so I would use that at the battery) to the stereo. Check the voltage as you turn the volume up into the high 20's and low 30's to ensure you are still getting voltage in the mid to high 11-12 volt range. The stereo is designed to require a minimum of 10.8 volts to operate, and when it drops below that it protects itself and shuts down.
