    If the amp doesnt turn off when the car is off the remote wire has been spliced in incorrectly, it needs to be spliced with the antenna wire. Not a red wire, usually blue or blue/white.

    is this an aftermarket, or factory headunit??? how old is the install???

    if it's a factory headunit... then you probably have the remote turn on wire hooked to a constant 12v, instead of one that turns off with the key.

    if it's a aftermarket headunit... either there's a problem with the deck or amp, or you don't have the remote wire hooked to the blue with white striped wire.

    if you hook it to the antenna wire... then the amp would shut off, when you use any source other than radio.
