Please check if any of the speaker wires are touching the ground. This is a safe guard error message indicating a short. Please check on the wiring/ the harness, disconnect one by one to see if the error message goes off. If so trace this connecction for a short. If the blinking continues even after the connections are removed then you must open the set and check the output amplifier for a short. Disconnect the power to the IC/drive to confirm. Hope you get this right. Helpful. Good day

My phoenix gold x200.4 amp turns on but the protect light keep on flashing

  • What does it mean when the LEDs flash on my amplifier?
    With most recently produced Phoenix Gold amplifiers, a flashing/blinking LED is an indication that the unit is in protect mode, usually due to an overcurrent condition caused by an internal short, external short (speakers), or low impedance. Overheating will also cause the amplifier to shut down temporarily.

    If amplifier remains in protect mode, power down the amplifier, disconnect the speakers, and power up again. If LEDs continue to flash, there is probably an internal problem with the amplifier that will require service attention to fix.

    Um the power light will flash then the protl. light will flash its all hooked up right but weird sounds coming out my subs.

    Disconnect subs from output of amplifier and then turn on car and radio. Does amp stay on or go into protect? If it stays on then there is something wrong with the subs or how they are wired (series, parallel ) to the box and amp. If it still goes into protect then something internal with amp.

    I have a pioneer gm-d8400m the amp isnt working

    flashing light could mean a few different things. 1- constant power may not be there. check with a test light or multimeter. should read around 12 volts. it would be a good idea to check all the power and ground leads. make sure u have a good ground. 2- bad sub. im assuming sub since its a monoblock amp. you can meter the subs. make sure the total ohm load is no less than 2 ohms. any lower the amp will go into protect mode. 3- bad amp. power supply may be bad. the newer pioneer amps are full of protection circuits. ive been a professional installer for a shop about 8 years and we sell pioneer. hope it helps.

    Protection light flashes on and i get nothing

    Hello shwoop22,

    It sounds like power is shorting out or the amp is defective. With the fuse removed, use a multimeter set to ohms and check between the power terminal to ground.

    The protection light will normally come on if the amp overheats (for example when running with too low impedance), or if the speakers are shorted.

    Hope this helps.

    No audio-amp protect light come on then went

    You need to check the DC voltage across the B+ and ground terminals. You also need to check the DC voltage across the remote and ground terminals. If the voltage is less than 11 volts, you need to check the B+ supply and remote wiring for breaks or open fuses. You should also check the ground connection to confirm that it's not loose.


    If the voltage is OK, the output transistors are likely shorted.

    No Sound/ lights flashing on Amp

    Disconnect your subs from the amp. If the lights go out then your sub is blown and is putting the amp into protect. If the lights keep flashing even with the subs disconnected than the Amp is toast.
