SOURCE: car amp

The most common reason for this is shorted output transistors. To confirm that the problem is in the amplifier, disconnect all speaker wires and the RCA cables. If the amp still goes into protection, check the DC voltage across the B+ and ground terminals. It should not drop below 11 volts. Also check the remote voltage.

If the amp continues to go into protect with no external connections (other than B+, remote and ground) and the voltage remaiins above 11v, the amp is defective.

SOURCE: Protection Light

This is almost always caused by shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems do the following.

Disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down (goes into protection), the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Generally, an amp with blown output transistors can be repaired.

Amp burned out but fuses still good?

Protection light


Hello. First, disconnect all of the speakers the amp is driving and the rca inputs while the amp is off. Now power on the remote. If the prot. light still stays on you will need to varify that the voltage across the ground and b+ terminals is a minimum of 12 volts. If this is true than your amp may be damaged due to shorted parts. Otherwise, try to repower the amp while a speaker is connected and if it is O.K. than there may be a problem with the RCA ground in the head unit or the amplifier. We service these amps at Sound Repair 321-690-0808.

Protection light grief


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Vibe is mediocre. Time to invest in an old school Lanzar Opti Drive amp. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. protection-light-grief-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg

Lanzar Vibe 1200D protection light


You will need to show it to a service technician as it seems the output section has blown so it remains in protect mode. One reason (could be) that the input to the amp was high and may have been clipping for some time before the amp decided it could take it no more

Hopefully you didn't fry speakers as well. Please check speakers impedance. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you
