It sounds like you have a broken connection in the amplifier. The first thing to check is the fuse. Sometimes the contacts become weak on the fuse holder and the connection becomes intermittent. Any other troubleshooting would require opening up the amp. Any repairs would require resoldering the broken connection.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Protect Light On Amp Being Weird


Could try switching right and left subs. If the problem moves to the other side pull the wiring and redo.
Then if the wiring is ok check the sub.

Make sure you are wiring the sub to the correct ohm's. Some amps have a protective feature that will send them into protect mode if they do not since the right ohm load. If the sub is wired correctly double check your ground wire on the amplifier, and if that if also fine then your amp will need serviced.

My amp keeps going into protect


do you have the right size ground wire, relative to your power wire? If your ground is smaller when you turn it up there is alot of power it needs an exit and if the wire is too small it travels elsewhere maybe your rca, causing your amp to protect.

Amp will not power on at all all of a sudden, fuses look fine


Hello schapman81,

You do not say if there are any indications or errors displayed.

I'd recommend you follow the troubleshooting steps here starting at Step 2 (B+ and Remote Voltage:). This should tell you if there's a problem in the wiring or if the amp itself has failed.

Hope this helps.

Memphis PR300.2 Amp protect light on


If it is not turning on your problem is it is not getting power. Check your fuses. The reason an amp goes into protect mode is usually because the subs are not wired up right. Make sure your fuses are good, you have a good ground, and make sure your amp turn on wire didn't come loose when you were putting the deck back in. As for the amp going into protect you probably wired the subs down to too few ohms and the amp you have can't handle it. Try hooking the subs up straight w/o bridgeing them and turn it up to see if it works. If you don't have problems with it then you wired your subs wrong.

Lanzar Vibe 1200D protection light


You will need to show it to a service technician as it seems the output section has blown so it remains in protect mode. One reason (could be) that the input to the amp was high and may have been clipping for some time before the amp decided it could take it no more

Red LED "Protection Light is on" What is the problem


The red light means the amp is in protection mode. A few things can cause protection mode..... First disconnect the subs completely from the amp, and turn it on, if it powers up you have blown subs. Also try checking the main power wire at the battery...sometimes the current your meter is seeing is backfeeding from the remote wire, so your main power line could be blown at the fuse under the hood. hope this helps
