Default Audiobahn Amp Issue

First of all I have searched about my problem, and didn't find anything specific enough on the forums. I have two audiobahn amps, 1600v, and an A1501dp. Both of them show protection lights after being in my friends car for no less then an hour, and now they don't work in my truck. I have checked the usual problems for instance, ground, RCA cable shorts, and powersupply issues, none of these are the problem. If I plug in another amp into my wiring, it works fine. Is this the Thermal Protection or what?? Somebody please help me....

It's not thermal protection. When an amp cools to a few degrees below the thermal trip point, it will operate normally again.

If it's going into protection with no speakers connected to it, it likely has shorted output transistors.

I'm sorry I can't at the moment. All I wanna know is if i should take these things somewhere and have them repaired of if a novice like myself with no knowledge of board soldering, could be able to repair the problem. Thanx

Lots of people with no experience have repaired their amps (with a bit of help). Sometimes the repairs are simple. Others are more difficult and take quite a bit of time and effort.

If you can't provide more information, you'll need to take them to a repair shop to have them repaired.

I can't help without knowing what I'm dealing with. That's why I need the photos.
