The amount slider will turn grey is something in the preset is not "slideable" — so for example, if the preset includes "Auto" from the Transform panel, this is not slideable and so the Amount slider will be grey.

If you get stuck, right-click the preset and do Show In Explorer, which will open File Explorer with the preset's .xmp file selected. Open the .xmp file in Notepad or another text editor and copy/paste its entire contents here.  We can then see precisely what's going on.

I imported that preset into my LR 11.4.1.  The Amount slider worked correctly with it. Then I updated the preset to have a different Exposure, and the Amount slider continued to work fine.  See the attached screen recording.

 

Perhaps you could attach a screen recording or screenshots showing precisely what you're doing.

The Thing I mean happend to you too

At 0:20 sec as soon you changed the exposure and let go the mouse click it greyed out and I'd like it to stay active even after I do am adjustment without updating it every time

That's what I meant in the beginning

It works fine for me too if I don't touch anything and just change the slider amount

I see what you're referring to.  I think what's going on:  LR will display the amount slider for a preset as long as the preset is selected (highlighted) in the Presets panel. You can change the sliders of settings not set by the preset, and the preset will remain selected and the amount slider displayed. But if you change the slider of a setting that is set by the preset, then the preset becomes unselected and the amount slider greys out.

 

I think LR's intent is that a preset will remain selected and highlighted as long as its settings are the current settings of the photo.  But as soon as you change one of those settings, LR unselects the preset to show you that its settings are no longer those of the photo.
