Get a power wire, grond to the frame of your car, get te 3.5mm to rca jack, plug your ipod phone or anthing in the amp and play some music, then hook the DMM to the speaker terminals and have the DMM on 200 AC, it should show numbers if everything works, that seems pretty straight forward. May not be worth the time though.

Also bridge a small wire from the power input to the remote input, this will make the amp cut on.

Hope hat works for you, i have PSUs (power supply units) from my old computers, its a AC to DC or whatever way converter, i use them to test amps with quick hookups and i can also test subs and speakers relatively quick, some of them cut off once the bass really starts so they are no good for a home theatre setup. But do not take the covers off the PSUs, myhand still stwitches from the 120v.
