Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It would take some testing to know for sure but there is little chance this isn't a failure of the amp. It's possible that signal from the radio isn't present but that's far less likely than the amp. A poor power or ground to the amp is also possible. The amp's power and ground feeds would need to be tested as well as checking the radio's input to the amp, and if ok then the amp can be condemned.
