The steering remote control input is for a wired remote control, or a third-party interface that allows you to adapt vehicle steering wheel controls to operate your deck. Your problem is the parking sensor wire. This is supposed to be connected to your vehicle's parking brake switch. It detects when the brake is set, and will prevent a picture from showing when it's not set. The intent is to prevent you from watching movies while the vehicle is in motion. If you can get a good look at the parking brake mechanism, you should be able to see the brake switch. Usually there's a single wire coming from the switch, which is built onto the parking brake mechanism. Connect your parking sensor wire to the wire coming from this switch.

My stereo sysytem is a mini stereo: serial number 10200055. It currently says "protect", what is this and how do we return our system to normal operations?


Hi there,

When the word PROTECT appears on this display, this means the unit has detected a critical fault which could potentially cause harm to your stereo system.

The most common cause is a short circuit somewhere - something even as simple as loose speaker wiring could cause a short, triggering the Protect message.

You will need to determine if there is a possible short somewhere, so I recommend you start by firstly turning power OFF, disconnecting all speaker wires, then turn unit back ON.

Operate the stereo (without speakers) and turn volume up:
  • If Protect message appears when turning volume up, then stereo unit itself has an internal fault
  • If no Protect message appears, then suspect the speakers may be causing the issue.
  • Reduce volume and turn unit OFF
Re-connect speakers (ensure the connections are secure), turn unit ON:
  • If turning volume up triggers the Protect message again, there is an issue with the speakers or connections

Hope this helps.....

Protect message comes on and my radio doesnt work.what should i do?


Hi there,

Firstly, are you able to remove the head unit from your dash?

Usually, when PROTECT appears, the unit has detected a short circuit (or overload) somewhere, and has shut down to prevent damage.

Problems in the wiring (e.g. loom or speaker wire) can often cause this condition.

I recommend you have someone remove the head and:

- check the fuse in the back of the head unit.
- disconnect one speaker wire, then turn unit on to see if Protect message comes up.
- do this with all speaker wires, until the unit operates without going into Protect mode.

If the above does not solve the problem, then you may need to decide whether repair is viable, or to replace.

I have the kvt 617 I have great audio when listening to radio nut anythig else I only have subs it started doing it when i first got it and then it quit and know it is doing it again any idea?


High end kenwoods have a setting, where you can turn off the internal amp in the head unit, if the sub is the only thing that has an external amp hooked to it, and it is playing, that may be your problem. Also, if one of the speakers hooked directly to the Kenwood has a short, bad voice coil, or contacts touching metal, that can cause the amp in the Kenwood to go into protect, and you will loose sound to all the speakers.

Protect mode??


Check your speaker wire and terminals at the speaker, it's shorting. The receiver goes into protection to keep from causing damage to itself.

I connect my kenwood kvt 719dvd and get a protect message


did you check continuity to ground with each speaker wire?
Have it bench tested at a local shop to eliminate or identify the unit as being at fault.

"Protect" isn't for security on a Kenwood; it's caused by a problem with the speaker output. There may be a defect in the CD player, or you may have a blown speaker or a shorted speaker wire in the vehicle. Try disconnecting all the speakers and see if the unit still shows "protect" when you turn it on. If it still shows the "protect" message with no speakers connected, the unit needs to be serviced; if not, re-connect the speakers one at a time until you find out which one is causing the problem.
