SOURCE: i have a kenwood kdc-mp332
My manuel says : Protect: The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protection function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. I had the same problem with my stereo, but I took it to Geek Squad cause I still have warranty on it.

Protect:- The speaker wire has a short circuit, or touches the chassis of the vehicle, then the Protect function is activated. Wire or insulate the cable properly and then press the reset button. If the "Protect" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service centre.

I did not resolve my problem and I defenitly am not going to pay anything to you to resolve it. So if you have the resolution to my problem tell me or do not bother to write to my email adres anymore. Thanks for your answer.

I read up on this and saw Tech48's post related to a different model. He's the one who deserves the credit. I'm just the rookie who has the soldering iron. However, here's a picture of the 5 resistors that you need to reflow and "top up"
My model is the KDC-MP532U (same as the 532, but with the USB option).
Here's the overall view. The CD-Player is standing on its edge at the bottom. The resistors are on the bottom right by the brass screw post.
...and here's a close up of the board and the resistors....
Hope it helps. Thanks Tech48!!!! It's like I've got a new stereo!!
