If you took it to a shop, why didnt they troubleshoot the amp. Ihe amp is in protection mode because of a componet falure in the driver or output stage in the amp.

Kenwood kac 628 red light comes on and no audio output

The red light you describe on your amp, is the protection mode warning light. An amp goes into protect for many reasons. Here's a checklist.

1st check the fuse (s) on your amp and make sure they are not blown.

2nd check the inline fuse next to your car battery (if you have an inline fuse)

3rd, disconnect the speaker wires with amp on, does the light go off?

4th check your ground, this may be ok if you have tried another amp with the same wires.

5th.if none of these turns the protect mode off, it may be an internal fault.

you may have blown transistors and it is a tricky job to repair and costly.

This deck is in protect mode

This is what the owners manual says about Protect mode......

The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protegtion function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button.

Kicker amo in my old vette

If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is dropping too low when the amp goes into protect.

If the voltage is OK, you need to check the speaker wiring and the speaker(s). Try it with a known good speaker if possible to see if the amp works normally.

Getting my amplifier out of protect mode

There is a problem with one or both of the audio amplification circuits. The amp is going into "protect mode" to protect your speakers. I'm afraid there is no simple fix. this will need to go to the shop to be repaired...

...unless you have been tinkering with the speaker connections recently. In which case, make sure all connections are sound & there are no wires touching other wires. This causes a short circuit. Leave it disconnected from the mains overnight. There's a slim chance it might spring back to life tomorrow.

Good luck & let me know how you get on.

Protection mode on Lanzar Vibe 241

Almost without exception, if the protection light comes on as soon as you power it up, the output transistors are defective. Any reputable repair shop that services car audio equipment should be able to repair it.

Amp in protect mode

Check to see if the fuse is blown. If it's not, the amp is unfortunately fried. It would not be worth repairing the resistor in it
