The RCA cables are for leads from your deck to your amp. Assuming you have an aftermarket deck, pull it out of the dash and look at the back. There should be a red out put and a white output for your cables to plug into. They're sometimes labeled left and right to help you make sure you hook up the amp right. If not, just be sure to match them up between the deck and the amp. If you have the stock deck in there, it's unlikely that you'll have RCA outputs, as most stock decks I've seen do not. As for the protection light being on, your amp is most likely shorting to ground somewhere. Be sure you don't have it screwed right to any metal parts of the car, as this can cause problems. Most amps have a section in the manual warning against this and the problems it can cause. Some amp manufacturers don't say anything about that or say that it will be safe, but, as a rule, I always just play it safe and mount it either to my sub box or on a piece of plywood or something that is secured in the car. Also, make sure that the in-line fuse on your power lead isn't blown, and most amps have one or more fuses on the side of them, so check those, too. If none of these things are wrong, then it might be an internal problem and I can't really help you with technical stuff. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback, too.
