Everytime I turn my ignition off and back on the amp starts in protected mode. If I take the amp fuse out and back in the LED goes green and everything works until the next time i turn my ignition off.
I have absolutely no idea why it does this. Any help would be greatly appreciated,

It sounds like that fuse is supplying power to more than just the amp and is being shorted out in the START mode. Normally I would think the power to the sound system would be cut off by the ignition switch in the START mode. Try to find out what else that fuse supplies power to. You can disconnect suspected trouble areas to see if that helps locate the source of the fault.
Disconnect all speakers
Meter power, remote, ground at amp, if all is good move on, if not check main fuses
Turn amp on; If in protect mode then your amp is toast
Turn amp on, if not in protect mode then start reconnecting speakers one by one until your amp goes into protect mode, then you'll know which speaker is bad.
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. . Double check all connections. Good luck.
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.
Start by completely turning off the power to it and anything connected to it. Turn all levels down to there lowest volume settings. Check to be sure your speakers are not shorted. Be sure the power voltage is correct. Turn on each of the items, the amp being last. That probably will resolve the problem but I am not that familiar with the unit just trying to help. Most units have stay in protect mode until I cycle the power. Typically they monitor the speaker current hence a short would cause almost an instant protect fault. Good Luck, Gilshultz
First try unhooking the speakers and see if it continues to go into protect mode. If it does'nt then your speakers are running to low of ohms required for that amp causing it to go into protect mode. If it still goes into protect mode check your ground, might have a voltage problem and check voltage going into amp. I have read the manual and this amp has advanced circuit protection. So if all I have asked you to do and it still goes into protect mode then amp is faulty and has some output transistors shorted or power supply mosfets shorted. Let me know what you find. But you need to do what I have explained to narrow the problem down. Good luck, Keep me informed. I will be glad to help you thru this. I also have a business of repairing car amps and you will not find anyone cheeper. So if you want it repaired and you feel you can't do it, just send it to me and I will repair.

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 your connections.

First disconnect the subwoofer wires from the amp, turn the car off and back on...is 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.
