KDC-MP2032. Why is PROTECT being displayed?


Look to the right of the SRC button in the corner, and you'll see a small button that you can press with a pen tip or paper clip. This is the reset button, and pressing it will turn off the protect mode. If it keeps coming back, there may be a wiring problem, or the head unit may be defective.

My screen came up this morning while I was driving down the road all it says is protect how do I fix this


First you might want to check your speakers and/or speaker wires for shorts and/or grounds if you can. If they all check out fine, try pressing the reset button. If you have no reset button, or don't know where it is, you can disconnect the battery for a minute or so to reset it. If it still goes into protect, you may have a bad internal output ic.

Kenwood kdc-mp208 stuck in ''protect'' mode....


Protect indicates that there is a short or a grounding problem usually within the speakers2_bing.gif or the speaker wiring. Locate and press the reset button (pinhole). If protect comes back then disconnect all speakers, reset and connect them back one at a time until protect shows up again. This will help you find out where the unwanted DC signal is coming from. If protect shows up when all speakers are disconnected, then it may need service.

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.

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!

Protect:- The speaker wire has a short circuit, or touches the chassis of the vehicle, then the Protect function is activated. Wire or insulate the cable properly and then press the reset button. If the "Protect" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service centre.

The protection function is activated when the speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. (The reset button is that little pinhole button below and to the right of the volume control). If you do this and the "PROTECT" code doesn't disappear, you'll have to consult a service center. Further, if you had this professionally installed, they should be obligated to fix the issue for you (hopefully).
