Generally, when an amplifier goes into protection when you attempt to power it up, it means that the output transistors have failed.

Measure the DC voltage across the B+ and ground terminals as well as across remote and ground. If you have less than 11 volts when the amp tries to power up, the amp could be shutting down due to low voltage.

If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

I have a kicker 500.2 red protection light is on and red light on top of amp flashes every couple seconds. Have checked all connections and other amp in truck works good. I bought two of these amps and...


Disconnect all the wires except the three main power wires, ground, 12v battery and remote. Now, turn on your radio, if the protect light is still on then there's an internal short in the amp. If the light turns green, then there's a short in either the auxiliary cables or the speaker outs. If it turns green, then troubleshoot the other wires that plug into the amp by connecting them one at a time until the protect light comes on, which will tell you that there's a problem with that speaker/aux wire.

My amp would turn on and off and one time it just stopped working its a powerful amp want to fix plz.help


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Contact Kicker to have them repair. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you.

Protection light on and with ground and remote conected both lights come on


Redo your ground...then check all the connections - again. To my knowledge there is no "fix" for these amps (other than reconditioning $$$) at home.
Maybe a local car stereo shop would diagnose the system for a little <$25?
Good Luck

No power


Disconnect the sub or speakers and turn on the amp, see what happens. If the amp turn on without the protection light, then your sub is blown. Also check to make sure ALL your fuses are good including the one under the hood. If you have a meter, test the fuse for continuity. The problem can also be a bad ground.
