I called Kenwood technical support. Here's what they told me and it worked. There's probably a wire not ground correctly. Disconnect your speakers except for the power wires going to the unit. Turn the faceplate on and hit the reset button located on the faceplate. It's a tiny button that's hard to find, and you have to use something small like a needle to push it in and reset it. Then all you have to do is hook your speakers up one at a time unitl you find where the fault is.

Kenwood car stereo is displaying Protect and wont come on


If ur kenwood stereo is going into protect mode, it is because one of ur speaker wires is shorting out. Make sure all of ur speaker wire connections are good, and then wrap them so they aren't grounding out against the chassis. This should solve ur problem.

It is on protected mode when i hit the reset button


Hi.

The unit goes on protected mode when an internal fault is detected.

Try disconnecting the battery cable for five minutes . If there is no fault you will clear protected mode.

If the unit still goes on protect, then check the wiring at the back, a short in there can trigger protectedd mode. If that does not work, then there is an internal fault. In that case the unit must be disassembled and tested.

Regards.

MY KENWOOD CAR CD PLAYER IS SAYING PROTECT??


Hi,

Kenwood head units show "protect" when there's a problem with the speaker outputs. This might mean a shorted speaker wire, a blown speaker, or an internal defect in the head unit. Once the condition that's causing the "protect" mode is fixed, the CD player should be back in normal mode the next time you turn it on.

If it's staying in "protect", then you'll definitely have to remove the stereo and do some troubleshooting to fix it. Many car audio stores will do system troubleshooting, for a fee. If you want to do it yourself, here's what you need to do:

Pull the Kenwood unit from the dash and disconnect all the speaker wires. Turn it on and see if the "protect" message displays. If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced. If it doesn't, then turn it off, and re-connect one speaker. Turn it on again and see if it displays "protect".

If it works with a single speaker connected, keep re-connecting the others until you identify the speaker that's causing the problem. There may be a wiring problem or defective speaker in that location.

If it displays "protect" with a single speaker connected, then disconnect that one and try a different one. If all the speakers cause a "protect" mode, then you're probably back to a defective head unit, unless your friend managed to blow all your speakers at once.

Thanks,

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!

Display read protected and wont do anything


Usually, protect mode is enabled when the speaker output wiring has shorted together or is touching ground/+12V. I would verify that none of the speaker wiring has come loose.

Protected


Wires are exposed. According to the manual, the wiring is grounding out or exposed at some point between the head unit and the speakers.
