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 Kenwood KDC-252U stereo and it is stuck in the protect mode. I followed the instructions the best I can. Any help would be wonderful.

any relations with jack frost? protection comes on if you run it too loud but if its on all the time that would mean your internal speaker output is faulty. you have to tip it

Stuck in protection mode tried everything voltage good wires good ground good open/close button dosen,t help me at all love amp please help

everything you've tryed is useless(with respect) because amp has shorted output transistors one or more and amp is in protection mode to protect your amp from further damage.take it to repair shop or try to locate blown transistor yourself.good luck

Autotek XS-900.4 stuck in protect mode


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.

Amp stuck in protect mode.

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. Double check all connections. Good Luck.A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.

My amp is stuck on protect mode. what do i do? its a lightning audio. the green light is not on the only light is the red protect light

the amp will need to be repair because it has a fault that it is seeing internally. so not much you can do other than buy a new amp or get that one repair. probably cost effective to buy new. hope this help. good luck

Protection mood

Hello john_hart,

Check the speaker wiring too. If one of the speaker wires is shorted or grounded, the amp will go into protection mode.

Hope this helps.

If it's in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, read through the following page:

Stuck in protection mode

First disconnect the subwoofer wires from the amp, turn the car off and back the amp on? If so your subs are shorting it out, either from a frayed wire, or blown subs.
If it is still in protection mode, check the fuses in the side of the amp.
