Disconnect all the wires and make sure that their all connected to the right terminals. If not positively sure trace all wires back to source. If you ground and power is swapped it will automatically go over to protection mode.

On most amps, rmt (remote) is a wire that connects to your stereo remote wire to the remote port on the amp. The remote wire turns your amp on when turning ignition on and turns amp off when turning ignition off. This wire needs to be connected as without it, you will drain your battery.
any amp will work with any speaker, you just need to make sure it is a mono amp if you are running 1 speaker and a stereo amp wither 2 or 4 channel if you are running 2 or 4 speakers, the ohm rating on the amp should match the speakers also, on the back of the speaker it has the ohm rating, most will be 8 ohm, but you still find some 4 ohm, depending on the speaker if it has a lot of throw (the in and out movement) you may want a higher wattage amp so you get clean sound, it is up to you.... if you are installing lower price amps to you may hear engine wine or noise while car is running so a grounde loop isolator installed on the system will remedy that... also with the amp the directions will tell you the ohm rating of the wire to use, follow that.... and keep the ground short and clean where ever you put it.. try not to go directly off the battery cause you will get a lot of noise... hope this helps..
If you are running a set or a single subwoofer with the jensen amp than you will want to hook up the rca cord to the subwoofer rca connection on the back of the stereo unit-the other rca outputs are there in the event that you want to run a 2 or 4 channel amp to power the speakers that are generally located in the doors or back deck-with that set up properly you would still be able to adjust the balance and the fader just as though you were powering the speakers with the deck. Pug the free ends of the RCA cord into the input rca receptacles of the amp- the stereo now will feed a signal to the amplifier that only contains bass - good luck
I'd be inclined to check to make sure there isn't a short circuit somewhere in the output lines. Maybe a wire is crushed against the car's body or bare wires touching or badly fitted RCA plugs. All of these things could activate the protection circuit. If you have a multimeter it would make life easier but don't forget your speakers will show up as 4 ohms so that's not a short.
schematic & instructions on deck
red (+) - power - 2 amp's power inlet power (+)
black (-) - ground - 2 amp's power inlet ground (-)
deck yellow wire - remote - 2 the remote amp
deck outputs 2 the RCA amp inputs
amp RCA outputs 2 speakers
it is wise that a pro will install the system
it will give u less concerns and u will have warranty on the installation
this will save u the money u will spend for fixing a bad installation
