Are you sure you have the correct ohm load for the amp?

Have you tried it with different speakers?

/\ My first guess too. I'm thinking you're bridging it to less than 4 ohms mono. Many people do that thinking its going to give them more power. It could also be a bad power connection under the hood at the fuse, or a loose ground, causing the amp to turn off.
