My Kenwood KDC-U453 cd receiver displays "PROTECT" on connection and nothing works - any solutions appreciated!!!!


Pull the radio out, tape off all wires but yellow, red and black. Twist red/ yellow together and attach to positive 12 volt, attach black wire to negative 12 volts. Turn on radio and see if it comes out of protect mode. If it does, you will have to troubleshoot all of the speaker wires to find a short.

I have a kenwood it says,kdc-mp142 and all of a sudden it just says protect. it wont do anything


The Kenwood radio will generally give a "PROTECT" error if the amp or receiver is being overloaded. This may mean that some of your wiring may have gotten frayed, one of your speakers isn't putting out the right voltage, or the receiver has decided to go bad. Make sure all of your connections in the back of the radio are solid and not frayed. If that's not the problem, try running each of the speakers one at a time. If one causes the radio to go into protect mode, that's your culprit.
If neither of these are the issue and the radio decides to stay in "protect" mode, your receiver may have seen better days and may need a replacement.

Kenwood kdc-mp238 says protect and i cant hit any buttons


if there is a reset button, try pushing that. if there isn't try disconnecting power to the radio for a few minutes. also try checking the speakers to see if they are shorted out, or if the speaker wires are shorted to ground or have any bare wires.

The screen on my KDC-MP342U just blinks with the word PROTECT


first, check your speakers and speaker wires for shorts, then disconnect power to the radio for a few seconds and reconnect it. if that doesn't work, then you probably have a bad output ic.

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!
