Sure you didn't pull anything loose from the other side (towards the deck) especially the rca's? You have an led that indicates good power? Is your ground secured completely with area underneath it sanded (maybe the hole opened up when the wire was pulled from the amp side)? Any interconnects for the rca's between the deck and amp? Or, how was your fix on the amp side for proper ground? Just throwing these questions out there to see if you've all ready checked them all. Good luck...

Since the ground came loose, the amp looked for the next best ground path, which was the RCA's connected to the deck. This probably wasn't a sufficient ground and smoked the amp. Whay amp is it? Is there a protection light on the amp that comes on?

that usually depends on how cocky you are when you walk in. If you have the "I hooked it up right and your shitty amp went out unlike the same amp I bought from somewhere else that was stolen" and "Ive been doing this for 15 years and I know what im doing!" yet the guy is like 18 or " I swear Ill never buy another piece of electronics from this store again, I usually get everything from the other Best Buy the next town over"
we will charge you!

that was taking SOP a tad far. Thats called standard operating procedures btw. I do that all the time, but as a place trying to make $$, it helps to get somebody in and see what they screwed up and charge them to fix it
