For some reason it has gone into protection mode to limit further damage to the amplifier. Remove the subwoofer wires and power on to eliminate shorted voicecoil. After checking all wires for continuity to ground, a service tech will be required.

Xplod XM-554ZR Car Audio Amplifier: powr/protect light comes on red not green...


Hi, disconnect all speakers from unit and try again - if red light still shows then your amp has died.
If the light goes green, then start testing for shorted speaker/wiring. This includes speaker wiring to vehicle shorts - there should be an o/c reading on your meter

Most likely one of your subs are blown, or the Ohm's are too low for the ampliphier. Try hooking up one speaker at a time to the amp and see if it does the same thing. If it shuts off on one of the two speakers, that speaker is most likely blown.

Sony Xplod Amp


well you might want to try using 30 amp atc fuses instead of 10 amp fuses on your amp, because you are getting an overcurrent from your alternator then from your battery. I have the same amp and you will find that your subbs will hit better too. also check on your ground wire from your amp as this also will cause the RED light to come on. :)

Hello....


If you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals on the amp and the amp still goes into protect mode, the amp probably has shorted output transistors. If that's the case, the amp is probably not repairable. The outputs that Sony used were discontinued and there are no other transistors that will work properly (unless some of the newest transistors are compatible).

If it's under warranty, contact Sony. If it's out of warranty, contact one of the authorized Sony service centers to see if they can help. They may have a supply of NOS parts that would work.

My sony xplod 1000w xm-1652z doesnt work anymore


First off, according to the manual, the protect light should be green. That's normal operation. If it is red, that's a problem.

If it does go red, disconnect all of the wiring to the amp except the +12V and ground. Short the remote connection to the +12V to force the amp on. If the protect light still lights red, the issue is inside the amp and will need repair. If the issue goes away, try reconnecting one wire at a time until the protect light goes red again.
