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.

My amp is in protect mode and i was wonderin how 2 get it out

The quickest way to determine if the problem is in the amp, the wiring, or the speaker(s) is to disconnect all speakers at the amp and re-power. If it stays in protection, check your ground. If you are grounded to a seat bolt or side panel on the vehicle, move it to the floor. Scuff the surface, check underneath for wiring or fuel lines! and drill a new ground. If it's still in protection, meter the voltage at the amp, if it's lower than 9.6v, that's your problem. If it's 11-13v and still in protection, the problem is internal and the amp needs service. If the amp leaves the protection mode when you disconnect speaker(s), check speaker wire for loose/touching wires or cuts in the shield. If that's ok, meter the speaker for resistance. If your meter reads 1..... the voice coil is burnt. If it reads .....1 the spider or coil is open or cut and again is bad. If you don't have a meter, any car audio shop can test your spkr(s) in just a few minutes. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you more.

No audio and staying in protect mode

You have no audio because it's in protect mode, could have a short in the speaker connections or one of the speakers - try it with speaker wires disconnected at the amp and also with a different pair of known good 16 ohm speakers. If the protect mode light doesn't go out then you may have cooked a driver and it will need to go to a shop.

My amp stays in protection mode

Does it go into protect in the vehicle if you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

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.

I have a dub 4001 amp

Take it step wise.

Unplug the inputs and outputs from the amp (be sure to mark the wires so you can hook them back up), leaving only the ground, +12, and remote wire hooked up. Now, turn it on. If the amp light goes red, the amp is broken. If it goes green, turn if off, plug in the speakers, then turn it on. if it's red, its a speaker problem, if green, do the same with the inputs, and you'll have your answer.

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.
