Sounds like a wiring short somewhere in the powerline from the battery to the amp. I'm guessing the fuze you're refering to is the one inline from the vehicles' battery to the amp. You'll need to find the short, fix it, then replace any blown fuzes before the amp will power up. Just take your time and go over all the wiring to and from the amp. Make sure the battery power cable hasn't shorted against the firewall(use a rubber grommet here), no screws have gone through it while reinstalling interior panels, and that your amps terminal connections aren't grounding out against each other due to stray copper strands.

Wires touched now no output

It is quite possible that the outputs were damaged when the wires shorted. In some case the fuse can blow or the protect circuit will trip . If so remove power , remove the short and reconnect. If there is no power check the fuse of the main positive line. If the fuse is intact or if the fuse blows on connection there is a short which must be confirmed. Disconnect the output drive and check to confirm.

Amp xm-ZR604 keeps going into protect mode

check the ground and the positive wires to make sure that they are getting good continuity. if your amp is too small for the speakers you are pushing this will also put the amp into protect mode

My fuse went out on my sony 800 watt amp and cant figure out how to swap out the fuses.

The fuse blew for a reason DO NOT replace it without repairing the problem. You will burn up more components.

Sony xm gtx1852 amp new and worked for 1 day now is in protect mode even with nothing hooked up but the remote and power and ground.

meter the power side of the amp. sometimes the amp will go into protect if it doesnt have power. if power and remote and ground are good the amp is probably bad.

sounds like maybe a speaker short, try unhooking your speakers and then powering up your amp, if it then powers up with the speakers unhooked try hooking up each speaker one by one untill the amp goes back into protection and then you have your bad speaker.
