Question about Car Audio & Video
Will work for a short time and then will go into protect mode.
Check to see if all the speaker connections are in polarity ( all + to + connections and all - to - connections in their corresponding places)
also you could check to see if the speaker cables are not exposed and touching any metal surface from the amplifier to the point of where the speakers are installed, any contact would cause a short and force the amp into protect mode.
hope this helps, need any more help let me know

SOURCE: KEEPS GOING INTO PROTECTION MODE
make sure that your running heavy enough gauge wire from the battery to the amp. make sure wires to bridge the amp is correct and the av wires from the deck are the right gauge should be like 8 gauge wires.

The amp does not go on protection only because of wiring or power source problem , but also and mainly when there is an internal fault.
Protection is started whenever an out-of range voltage value is detected from the controller circuit.
Protection can be triggered from a burnt final IC or from a speaker wiring problem.
Since you have ruled out speake, wiring and power source problems, then this Amp is probably defective
If the Amp works fine on a different vehicle, then protection mode may start either because speakers impedance is not within Amp specs, or because the amp has a too big power draw. In this last case the problem is fixed installing a capacitor on the Amp 12V line.
