Depends on context , not stated.
cars use many technologies.
one is Electrics and electronics.
thermal protection in this context means.
1: fuses.
2: fuseable links (looks like an odd splice in a wire)
3: Circuit brakers.
all 3 stop the fire.
The cars battery can source easy 500 Amps and can make a fire fast. these fuses stop that fire.
also electonics have air cooling or devices that keep the parts cool
this too is thermal protection'

so why ask this. why not say here you saw it, so we can understand

My net gear not somehow is causing my modem to power cycle about 2 -3 min. Can't figure out what's causing it. Any body's help would be much appreciated cause I know absolutely nothing about these things.

I am very impressed that you have Net Gear in your vehicle, but it sounds to me that you are in need of a new modem. The constant re-starting sounds like it is overheating and going into thermal protect mode.

The A/C on my Honda Accord isn't working I checked

If the fuse and relay is working ok it could be that the thermal protection on the compressor failed. This could be check by grounding it at which point the compressor should come on.

My 2002 dodge ran hot then wouldn't start up again once it cooled down.

Check the oil and see if there is signs of water in it... foam, white stuff or water/antifreeze. You might have just blown a head gasket , but more than likely you cracked the head.

First time using it, half way through a cut and it stopped working--can't get it to even start. Power supply is not the issue.

there is a thermal fuse inside the motor ... if the motor gets too hot (blocked air flow or heavy extended load) then the fuse will trip .. in some there is a resetting fuse that automatically resets when the motor has cooled (thats proper protection) .. in others there is only a permanant fuse .. once the motor has gotten too hot then it trips .. the fuse has to be replaced but its not easy .. they are crimped in and are often hidden in the motor windings.. .. those permanent thermal fuses seem to have a high early life failure .. that is, there doesnt have to be anything wrong .. they just open ... of course check the line cord for damage.. if your unit is in warranty then that should cover the thermal fuse problem..another possibililty is a stuck brush .. those are sometimes accessable from the outside .. there are two plastic parts that unscrew .. (make sure its unplugged) .. you can remove each brush and check for burrs or damage .. in some, the brushes are inside and difficult to get to .. my wife had the same problem only in her case she sawed right thru the cord .. ...

like the fan just quits? you could have a worn fan (blower motor) causing the unit to heat up and go into some kind of thermal overload protection mode.

What type of oil should I put in my truck

The viscosity rating of an oil has nothing to to with the ability to protect. 5w30, 15w50, etc. is a measure of how quickly the oil flows at two different temperatures.

There have been thousands of pages worth of arguments on this very subject over the years. What is boils down to is ANY oil you use of the proper viscosity rating will protect your engine. Synthetic oils start out with ZERO ash content and fewer other contaminants so they will likely protect longer. Unless you run your conventional oil past the point it is no longer providing adequate protection this is of no benefit. Where exactly is "the point it is no longer providing adequate protection"? There is no way to tell without a regular oil analysis.

Use the correct viscosity rating and change your oil and filter regularly. That's all you need to do.
