I'm going with a short in the wiring somewhere, that could cause it to go into protection mode and always explains the dead battery.

I'm assuming there is a fuse towards teh battery end of the +ve wire.

It may be a battery problem. Amplifier probably has low voltage protection,. When the voltage drops below 10v it will stop working.

Try hooking a charger onto the battery to supply voltage and then try.

I assume power earth and remote turn on are all connected properly?
