I have a 99 Grand Am with the exact problem. I was told it was the "modulator" which costs like a thousand bucks to fix. Because it is electrical I wouldn't recommend you trying to repair it yourself! Good luck

What will be the effect if the conduit is not fully fitted to the coupling?

You would not have a full metallic conduit system. A complete system is needed to make an electrical bond for the whole electrical system. In older conduit systems before a code change the metallic system was used to carry any fault currents back to the distribution to trip the breaker. Any break in the conduit system would prevent this from happening and hence the electrical code change.

Will vibrations from your sub help blow a fuse in your amp?

Blowing fuse versus vibrationNO, vibration would not be the cause.The cause for fuses to "blow" is the flow of electrical current in excess of the capability of the wire to carry.Fuses are designed, manufactured, and installed to protect the wire from over-current conditions which could cause the wire to melt its insulation an cause a fire.Some ignorant people will suggest installing a larger fuse, but that will not solve the problem, AND...Can cause serious damage to any electrical equipment on the circuit, and..In a "worst case" situation, cause a fire which can destroythe entire electrical system, and possibly your vehicle.
