    Does it have the security code input? I would triple ck the pwr and gnd. But I would say it sounds as if it might be going out

    Check your power and ground connections. A loose or corroded terminal will cause it to shut off.

    Yea I just cleaned all my terminals there fine everything looks good it must be on its way out. I haven't really used it much either. Should I just throw it out if on its way out or do they sell parts for them.

    You can just buy the circuit board you don't need to get the whole thing
