It's possible that the amp failed but it's more likely that the head unit has a blown fuse in the remote lead or has been damaged and will need repair.

Check the remote output from the head unit. Set the Fluke meter to DC volts. Turn the head unit on. Connect the black meter lead to a known good ground. Connect the red lead to the remote lead from the head unit. You should read ~12 volts with the head unit on and zero volts with the head unit off. If you have ~0 volts when the head unit is on, pull the head unit to see if the remote has an inline fuse.

thanks for the advice but i just ran a toggle switch to the rmt because the head unit is stock so there is no power antenna or such

If this was properly installed, there should have been a fuse in the line feeding the toggle switch.

Before you can do anything else, you need to confirm that the remote has voltage.

You should also confirm that the B+ line has 12v.
