My stereo keep flashing protect


hi johney, this function is an internal protection system linked to the amplifier circuit, there is either an internal fault OR a setting that must be reset by your kenwood repair agent OR there is a problem detected by your unit with the speaker wiring or the speakers directly. by yourself try resetting the unit to see what comes about, if the fauly persists then its best to refer to your kenwood repair agent. good luck. cheers.

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.

I have a kenwood car stereo excelon kdc-x591 it says protect and does not play at all


Hi.

Protect mode start when the internal control circuit detects a fault, like a wrong voltage or a short. When protect is on the unit will not operate.

Disconnect car battery ground cable and check the wiring at the back of the unit, a contact in the connectors or a short on speaker wiring is common cause for protect mode.

When you disconnect the battery ensure that you have the anti theft code if needed.

Regards.

Ginko.

Its on protect mode and i cant get it off


Look on the face plate for a really small hole. Put the tip of a pen in the hole and hold it for a few seconds. Your system should then re-set. If the Protect signal keeps coming on, take it to the dealer to make sure your stereo is wired properly....hope this helps

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!
