try this, hook the remote to the power terminal with a small wire, then hook a small ground wire to the negative battery terminal and a small wire to the positive. if the fuses on the amp are ok then this SHOULD turn on the amp.
if it does then perhaps there's a break in your wire somewhere.
also take a multi meter and measure the current from teh power and ground you were using. that'll tell you if the juice is coming.
just some suggestions.
or you could drive out here if you cant figure it out and I can look at it
