I would also check the speaker outputs from the deck. If any of the speaker outputs are touching any metal on the vehicle, it could give that message.

Protect


You have to reset your system... Use a pen to push a small button that's located in the front of the face plate. That will reset the system...If it gets stuck on standby, just push the SRC button on the face plate or on the remote..

My KDC BT742U recently went into protect mode after I went over a small bump. I drive a 2001 F150 Supercrew that had the stock stereo in it before the new kenwood. No problems had ever occurred before...


What has happened, is the bump has caused a broken joint on the pcb I have seen this many times in my shop. You need to take the actual unit in for repair, I mean the "Bump" and the "Problem" are indeed connected, and this is exactly what happens.

Its on protect mode and i cant get it off


Look on the face plate for a really small hole. Put the tip of a pen in the hole and hold it for a few seconds. Your system should then re-set. If the Protect signal keeps coming on, take it to the dealer to make sure your stereo is wired properly....hope this helps

"PROTECT" is displayed on the car stereo when turned on


This is really easy to fix. Look on the face plate for a REALLY small hole. Put the tip of a pen in the hole and it should work. This usually means the stereo isn't wired properly so if the PROTECT keeps coming on after you've re-set it, take it to a dealer. To make sure you're everything is in properly. Hope this helps...

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!

My stereo is flashing the work "PROTECT" across the front


In a Kenwood deck, "PROTECT" usually means that one of the speaker output wires is shorted. The first thing to do is pull the deck and inspect the wiring at the back, making sure there aren't any pinched or exposed wires. If a speaker wire is pinched against the deck chassis, or bare wire is touching dash metal, it can cause your problem. If you don't see anything obvious, disconnect all speaker wires from the deck, then turn it on. If it still flashes "protect", then you have a defect in the unit. If not, then re-connect the speakers one at a time until you find the one that causes it to go into Protect mode. Usually if you don't find a pinched or shorted wire behind the radio, the problem can be found at the speaker itself. This is especially common if you've installed after-market speakers; if a speaker terminal connection has come loose and is now touching the speaker basket or mounting surface, it will shut down the deck.
