SOURCE: kicker amp goes into protection mode as soon as i

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.

SOURCE: kicker zx 1000.1 green light flickers and no sound

The first thing I would suggest is to check all connections to the amp and speakers, especially the ground. A loose ground can cause the problem listed. You can test this by temporarly running a ground from the amp to the battery neg. . If the amp fires up ok then that means your grounding point for the amp should be checked and cleaned and reattached firmly. If you have a meter(multitester) set it to ohms and check the impedances of the voice coils in the woofers. If one is cooked it may be shorted and tripping the amps protection. Always hook thing up with the sys off and then turn on and test.

SOURCE: Is my amp or wiring bad? volfenhag zx-8400, 2000watts amp

Sounds strange,
Put a voltmeter on your car, to see if the voltage is stable when the engine is running.
if it is unstable, turn your car off immediately, to avoid damaging other electrical components.

If the voltage does not stay between 12.8 - 14,5volts (engine running) then the Rectifier is shot on your alternator.

Is your Amp screwed to the metal of the car? B'cos it shouldn't be.

if that doesnt help, try another RE-wire (you may have missed something) after refreshing your memory with an AMP wiring diagram.
Or just take it out & get it tested,
if its out of warrenty open & inspect the circuits for burns, a shop will charge just to look at it.

Check the impedance of the speaker to be sure that it matches the output of the amp. Common error on this detail can cause the amp to overheat and shutdown/protect.

MY KICKER ZX 750.1channel amp "FLIP FLOPS" from protected mode(red light) to normal (green light) every 2 seconds.


Are you getting any sound output at all from amplifier?
Is there a popping or banging coming from speaker?
It could possibly be a faulty output mosfet that is ocillating cause DC to leak onto the speaker output causing it to flip into protect.
please advise
thanks,ben

How to switch protection off (red LED to blue)


The protection light is on indicating a short or over- voltage problem. If you disconnect the speaker leads and the light goes off or green then the problem is a shorted speaker or wiring problem. If the light stays red the problem is inside the amp and it will need service and parts.
