My sony Xplod will not play because of an overcurrent protection light. Any idea what causes overcurrent fault? The voltage is fine, around 12.70 with vehicle off and 13.98 with vehicle running. I appreciate any help, Thanks.

I am running rca inputs and yeah, around 12.7v or so when off. Its in a 94 Nissan Max if that helps any. I've never had any problems before though. Had the amp installed for roughly 3 years now.

Disconnect the speaker wires from the amp and see if the light goes off- if it does, your problem lies in the speakers and/or wiring.  If it doesn't, you've got a bad amp.  You can either have it repaired, or replace it.

My ex once told me I have a perfect face for radio.

Sounds like the amp is fried. COMPLETELY disconnect all wires from the amp, and see if that resets it. If not, looks like you are sending it back to Sony for repair, or dropping some bennies on a new one...
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

well since it was a sony, you could've fried it very easily, sony amps are known to get really hot.  I had a sony amp before and it would get so hot you could prolly light a cigarette off of itSony Xplod Amplifier -- posted image. haha. never tried tho.
