I have a 2001 chrysler voyager installed a kenwood stereo and when i raise the volume to where its lound the radio will turn off and on untill i lower the vol


My electronics savvy source says you may be overdriving the amplifier in your Kenwood stereo to an impedance-mismatched set of speakers, meaning that the speakers are impedance mis-matched to the Kenwood stereo, and therefore operate ok (but inefficiently) at low volume, but cut off completely at higher volume.
Fix: match the impedance of your speaker network to the specs on your Kenwood car stereo. Once this is done, you should be able to crank up the volume to the point of permanent hearing loss.
SAFETY CAUTION - sound levels above 85 decibels produce NIHL (noise-induced hearing loss).

My kenwood car stereo model no. KDVMP5343U is showing protect while switching on


PROTECT (Blink): The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protection function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. If the "PROTECT" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service center.
Good luck with it

I have a kenwood car stereo excelon kdc-x591 it says protect and does not play at all


Hi.

Protect mode start when the internal control circuit detects a fault, like a wrong voltage or a short. When protect is on the unit will not operate.

Disconnect car battery ground cable and check the wiring at the back of the unit, a contact in the connectors or a short on speaker wiring is common cause for protect mode.

When you disconnect the battery ensure that you have the anti theft code if needed.

Regards.

Ginko.

KDC-w3041 says PROTECTION when i turn it on


Sometimes if the power is removed it requires a code to be input, to remove the protection, you will have to contact Kenwood, and ask for the code to clear it. This is an anti theft feature. Often the car dealers have these, or try an auto-electrician.. BTW your English is good.

Car stereo is flashing ''protect'' on the detachable face-reason? stereo was working fine all day-got in truck tonight, turned on ignition ''protect'' scrolling across face-no sound-will not play cd-remote...


Thats the anti theft mechanism. usually theres a button, or switch you have to press or change somewhere on the stereo. Usually on the base part behind the detachable face.
Without knowing what kind of stereo it is I cant be sure, but some have security codes to prevent the use of it if you dont know the code. the combination needs to be entered with the 0-9 buttons, and is always a 4 digit combo. Usually when you set up that feature, it asks you for a custom security number and if you forget it, your pretty much screwed, as you have to remove the stereo, either find out the memory kill wires, and cross them, or open it up and either cross the memory wires or remove the eternal battery. If this is the case, you will need to have a trained professional fix it, car stereo's are very compact and will be almost impossible to re-assemble it yourself unless you have the proper tools to do it.
Chances are, theres a switch or button you need to use though. You might have acidently hit it without knowing it when taking the face off, or changing the vollume or station.

Kenwood kdc-w3041 protect mode


Hello ia737,

The "protect" display is probably being caused by a shorted or grounded (touching vehicle chassis or other ground) speaker wire. Check the speaker wires for bare spots, etc and insulate or replace as necessary.

You do not need to remove the fuses to force a "cold reset" of the W-3041. You can simply press the "reset" button on the front of the unit. It's the little recessed button at the lower left of the volume control. Use the straightened end of a paper clip or ballpoint pen to momentarily hold the button in.

Hope this helps.

I have a kenwood stereo and the diplay is reading Protect what do I do? I have the code and it gets approved everytime then just diplays protect right after.


If you have a model with a detachable face there is a reset button under the face. Reset back to original state. If that doesn't work some of the older Kenwoods defaulted to the protect screen whenever there was a 'fault' in the system. ie. a shorted wire or blown speaker.
