Unhappy Stereo cuts out on acceleration

Hi, I have just installed an mp3 kit type stereo all it has is the amp and mp3 plug in.

Issue i have is when i push on the gas the music volume lowers for a split second then goes back to normal. when i slow down and stop everything is still good, it only happens on acceleration.

I wired the the accesory wire (blue) to the key switch.
Power (red) to the Battery + (this has an inline fuse)
ground (black) to the Battery -

Other than that i have no complaints, installed an 12V also and works great.

Any ideas? seems like when i push the gas it is losing some power. But i don't know how to fix it, i've seached the forum here and google etc.

this is all on a 2010 Precedent (GAS)

Welcome


Hey Wizard

the blue wire is for the power antenna, -and the yellow is the memory it needs to go to 12V on the battery + >> red should be switched for off and on

I think wizard has it corect. on an amp, the blue wire is the remote turn on. It is usually connect to the blue antanna wire from the radio.( whitch sends 12 v out to the power antanna moter to raise the antenna and can also be used to turn on and amp) he said notheing about a yellow memory wire is why i think he has it correct
If his set up works like i think it does, he does not have a head unit(radio). His MP3 connects to the amp.

gas or electric cart?

The amp may be hurting for power upon acceleration because of the extra draw on the batterys at that time.

Just a guess. I think others will let u know for sure.

Good luck

I have the Poly Planar 50 watt MP3 Kit in my cart. The blue wire goes to a switched +12v source to turn on the amp, definitely. I have a separate 12v motorcycle battery, and I still lose the radio reception when using my Zune. If I play just my music, it is fine. There is a lot of electrical interference when the cart is first starting out, probably from the controller, once I'm up to speed I get radio reception back. If you are hooked up to 2 of your 6volt batteries, then the power drop could be your problem, check it out with radio and mp3's and see if it is different. Once I'm up to full speed, the radio doesn't cut out.

Hey guys it's gas cart. Just the one 12v battery. Also it is the poly planner MP3 kit also, so there is only RED +, Black -, and Blue (Instructions say wire to the switch or if not switch use direct battery). I am sure there is something i could do to prevent the lowing of the music. Thanks everyone for replies so far.

once the gas kicks in do you still have a power loss?. I just re red your post and saw that it is a gas cart
may still be hungry for power as the stater is engaged to start the engine. Can you rangle up a nother battery to try running your stereo on to see if that is the case?

That sounds like the starter is making a big voltage drop when it starts, so it should come back on after the motor is running and charging...

Some (SOME) voltage drop is to be expected across the battery everytime the starter engages. A newer battery will reduce this possibility, and a second dedicated battery will eliminate it alltogether but presents another issue with charging.

Just talked to the club car dealer in my area (still 2hrs away) anyways, he recommonded not going off the key switch which can cause this problem. I'll have to wire it to a toggle switch and go directly to the battery and see how that works out. I'll keep you all updated. Might not be able to do this till Friday. Maybe tonight cause it is pissing me off.

I had a similar problem when using an amp. I ditched the amp because the current draw was almost as much as my charging current. Club Car generators only put out about 16 amps, thats not very much when you add up all the accessories "lights, stereo". I have headlights, tail lights, turn signals and stereo. Two 55 watt halogen headlights equal 110 watts which is 9.16 amps, that only leaves about 7 amps to charge battery. Check what the current draw of the amp is, do not use the output power to figure this, you need to know power consumption in watts, and devide that by 12 "volts" and you will have the currant draw. Dont forget to add in any other stuff that is on at the same time. I lowered the wattage on my headlights down to 35 watt halogen "5.8 amps", and changed to this stereo http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...%7CGRP2021____ only about 4 amp draw, and all is good. Hope this helps.
