We have seen very few of these amplifiers in shop in need of repair. Most times it is water damage because the passenger window is left down, this amplifier sits under the passenger seat. If this amplifier goes out, remove immediately. Remove the covers from the amplifier and take your hair dryer to the circuit boards. There is a good chance you will bring it back to life. Check the connections for water damage too.
