Well I believe I found the problem: my super old Fosgate RCA cables. I noticed that moving the RCA plugs on the amp inputs had been making the sub cut in and out. But I found that if everything was hooked up (with a new wire running directly from the remote output to the amp's turn-on terminal), the amp would stay on after I shut the car off. Then when I pulled the RCA's out of the amp, the amp would go off after a few seconds (LED would slowly fade out).
If I turn the car on and then off without the RCA's hooked up at all, the amp turns on and off just as it should.
This seems very odd that the RCA's could create that sort of behavior. I did notice that the right RCA input on the amp had very little resistance when pushing the RCA plug in. I hope it's not a problem with the actual amplifier and not the cables. I'd rather buy new cables than a new amp.

The problem is actually my old MTX amp, not the cables. Oh well, guess my luck at using free used equipment is coming to an end. My friend used the amp for several years and then I used it for 2-3 years myself.
