I would definately suspect wiring. If you can use a volt meter. Put it on the b+ to ground and see what the reading is should be 12+ then try the ground to remote wire should be 12+. If it drops below 12 volts when car starts. Recheck wires for loose connection. Also double check the wire you have the remote wire connected to. You might even want to disconnect from the amplifier and use a jumper wire from the positive terminal on the amp to remote on the amplifier and see if it stays on then. If it stays on you will have to find the loose connection or find a different wire to get remote power.

check to make sure your ground wire is attached to a clean metal surface no more then 18" away from amp. check all wires to ensure none are touching other terminal. all else fails remove one sub and see how it play, if its works great switch subs. could be a defective amp. if it is the amp and you payed for it with a credit card or bank card you can do a charge back from the bank to get your money back if the store wont replace it. thell the bank "you want to do a charge back cause it wasnt as discribed).

protect mode should be reset if the negative of your amp is disconnected then reconnectewd. if it doesnt help, move your ground to a different location. if THIS doesnt help, consider a repair or a new amplifier.

If you power up the amp with the RCAs plugged in, does it go into protection mode.
If you power up the amp with the RCAs plugged in, does the woofer pop?
