Radio flashes PROTECT


Check you user guide for resetting the radio code. Your dealer (or the previous owner) should have given you the code. It may be in your radio user manual.

Is this the original radio unit or an aftermarket radio unit?

Protection light flashing and alarm sounding, unit was running and the unit just quit and the flashing light and alarm came on


Will the unit power up without the cb radio? I would suggest a short somewhere in the system if the protection light continues to shine bright.

Kenwood kdc-mp345u keeps flashing protect, and i've disconnected the speakers and unplugged the radio for about 30 min, plugged radio back in still flashing protect


Chances are pretty good either the output ic or the volume control ic inside of the radio are bad. Both require the ability to use a soldering iron to replace.

I turned on my radio and Protect is flashing on the screen. Nothing that I do makes this go away. Please help.


you have a crossed wire problem that will need to be fixed before the protect will drop off and allow you to use the stereo.

My car radio keeps flashing protect do i need a code


don't know what kind of radio you have, but usually if a radio is flashing protect it is because you have a short in the wiring, a bad speaker or a bad output ic.

My stereo is flashing the work "PROTECT" across the front


In a Kenwood deck, "PROTECT" usually means that one of the speaker output wires is shorted. The first thing to do is pull the deck and inspect the wiring at the back, making sure there aren't any pinched or exposed wires. If a speaker wire is pinched against the deck chassis, or bare wire is touching dash metal, it can cause your problem. If you don't see anything obvious, disconnect all speaker wires from the deck, then turn it on. If it still flashes "protect", then you have a defect in the unit. If not, then re-connect the speakers one at a time until you find the one that causes it to go into Protect mode. Usually if you don't find a pinched or shorted wire behind the radio, the problem can be found at the speaker itself. This is especially common if you've installed after-market speakers; if a speaker terminal connection has come loose and is now touching the speaker basket or mounting surface, it will shut down the deck.
