The first thing I would suggest is to check all connections to the amp and speakers, especially the ground. A loose ground can cause the problem listed. You can test this by temporarly running a ground from the amp to the battery neg. . If the amp fires up ok then that means your grounding point for the amp should be checked and cleaned and reattached firmly. If you have a meter(multitester) set it to ohms and check the impedances of the voice coils in the woofers. If one is cooked it may be shorted and tripping the amps protection. Always hook thing up with the sys off and then turn on and test.

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.

Check the impedance of the speaker to be sure that it matches the output of the amp. Common error on this detail can cause the amp to overheat and shutdown/protect.

MY KICKER ZX 750.1channel amp "FLIP FLOPS" from protected mode(red light) to normal (green light) every 2 seconds.


Are you getting any sound output at all from amplifier?
Is there a popping or banging coming from speaker?
It could possibly be a faulty output mosfet that is ocillating cause DC to leak onto the speaker output causing it to flip into protect.
please advise
thanks,ben

It blinks from green to red no sound it is a kicker 350.4


REMOVE THE RCA INPUTS AND ALSO THE SPEAKERS. MAKE SURE THAT YOUR POWER AND GROUND CONNECTIONS ARE 100%. POWER IT UP AGAIN AND IF IT EXHIBITS THE SAME SYMPTOMS, THEN IT WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE.....V

Generally, if a Kicker amp has the power light lit and the protection light isn't lit, it's working. Are you sure that you have signal feeding the amp?

Are you sure your speakers are OK?
