I have a alpine head unit that keeps shutting off

Mechanic's Assistant: What Alpine model do you have?

Cde-hd1498t

Mechanic's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Alpine unit?

I have it hooked up to a alpine inline amp

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

I've ran a separate power wire to see if that helped and it did not

sorry for the delay............

Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (akaCustomer and I look forward to helping you!”

Does the Unit completely shut off?
Does the Unit lose any "memory" (clock, station settings, etc)?
Have you tried disconnecting AMP & leave Unit ON?
Do ALL Speakers turn OFF?
How do you get the Unit to come back ON?

I turns completely off no mem loss and I turns back on after a few seconds
Car Electronics Technician: Don - Mo Lurch, Car Electronics Technician replied 2 months ago

Does this happen at any Volume? (no, low or high)

Have you tried disconnecting AMP & leave Unit ON?

High volumes usually

I cant disconnect smo without completely rewiring cause it's a inline amp
Car Electronics Technician: Don - Mo Lurch, Car Electronics Technician replied 2 months ago

This sounds like either the AMP or Speakers are "over heating" or one or more Speakers Voice Coil is causing a shut down.
Most Alpine Units & AMPs have a Internal Audio type Circuit Breaker.
When the Unit or AMP detects a "short", it will shut down & after a few moments will allow restart.
Be sure ALL Speaker (+) & (-) are correctly connected to the AMP & NO Speaker terminals or the Voice Coil wires are touching metal or case of Speaker.
Also check the Connection on the back of the Face Plate & on front of Unit
Using a "bright pad" carefully clean the connections on the Face Plate & front of unit

.

Let me know if you need further
