It's normal for some amps to go into protect for a few seconds when initially powered up. If it remains in protect mode, it may have shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following troubleshooting page:

Let me know if you have any other questions.

    There are probably no internal fuses. It's likely that the amp has shorted output transistors. I generally help people repair amps but this amp is complex and should be repaired by an experienced tech. Google the Phoenix Phorum. Someone there will know a tech that can repair it for you.

My amp is a kenwood kac-9152d it goes in to protection mode soon as you hook up the power


In protection mode do you mean the light comes on and it plays music and stuff? If that's the case, that's what the amp is supposed to do. Protect itself from a power surge

Kicker amp goes into protection mode as soon as i turn it on


Have you tried powering on without speakers connected? Have you tried powering on with no input? If either senerio causes the amp to NOT go into protection mode, then there is most likely a short in wiring. Use a multi meter to isolate.

Stuck in protection mode


First disconnect the subwoofer wires from the amp, turn the car off and back on...is the amp on? If so your subs are shorting it out, either from a frayed wire, or blown subs.
If it is still in protection mode, check the fuses in the side of the amp.
