CEL Light

Has anyone heard of getting a CEL for a bad ground on an amplifier??
I recently got a P0650 fault and after some playing around im thinking it may be due to a bad ground from the amp?

Would that set of the CEL?

The P0650 is a generic code and is for any electrical open/short/grounding of the CEL. You may want to check your wiring.

Please help P0650 CEL

I am having the same problem. I have a OBD-II code p0650 and ceck engine light only works some time on my 00 Boxster S. Since I have witnessed the check engine light on, I don't think it is a light blub problem.

I also don't understand "I re-ran the ground from behind the drivers seat to the front "boot"... everything seems to be working fine now.."

Can some one please help, I just bought the can and I need it to pass emitions so I can register it.
