Protection light on Kicker ZX700.5

I have a Kicker ZX700.5 amp that I just bought. The protection light will not go off. I have tried it on different speakers and cars to see if that was the problem. It was not. Please help. How can I get the light to go out?

    Basic hook up, ground wire, remote wire, and power wire all the right gauge sizes. Without any speakers hooked up or aux wires plugged in amp comes on in the protection mode and will not come out.

Considering you just bought it, the amplifier itself is probably not the issue. Small chance it is, but we'll go with that a last resort. Have you hooked it up without any speakers connected? Does the light still come on? Describe all the connections you have made to amp (what came from where, and what terminals it is connected to.)

    I bought mine used and everything worked just fine for about a month, then the protection light went one day. After thinking it was a bad unit because I bought it used, I almost gave up on it. I decided to give one last attempt to fix it cuz a replacement 5 channel costs too much for me.

    I removed EVERYTHING that is connected to the amp, including the 1 farad cap. When I got to the ground wire, I saw that it was kinda loose. I decided to replace ALL my power and ground wires (4 gauge) and it worked just fine after that. I think it was my ground wire that was bad in my case. I made sure the ground is secure and making clean contact this time.

    The light DOES come on green without any RCA or speaker wires hooked up. You should be able to figure out if it's a bad amp or not by making all your power cables tight and clean. Don't leave any "whiskers" exposed. This amp seems to be very good about protecting itself from a short and overload. Hope this helps.

Kicker kx850.4 protection light stays on know power light


Check power make sure you have solid 12 volts. Disconnect speakers, shorted speaker can cause protection mode to engage. If still in protect mode will need to repair. Kicker does out of warranty repairs on kx series amps or try T.I.P.S contact at linearpower.com. Iirc Ray @ tips was one of the engineers at kicker back when kx series was introduced.

I have a kicker 500.2 red protection light is on and red light on top of amp flashes every couple seconds. Have checked all connections and other amp in truck works good. I bought two of these amps and...


Disconnect all the wires except the three main power wires, ground, 12v battery and remote. Now, turn on your radio, if the protect light is still on then there's an internal short in the amp. If the light turns green, then there's a short in either the auxiliary cables or the speaker outs. If it turns green, then troubleshoot the other wires that plug into the amp by connecting them one at a time until the protect light comes on, which will tell you that there's a problem with that speaker/aux wire.

I think ma kicker kx1200.1 amp is blown or ma kicker L7 are gone


that would be the amp. sorry to say. when a wire crosses over, it sends a shock through the amp, there are a few things to try just to see if you fried the amp. the first thing to try is to move your ground to a different location. second thing to look at would be the fuses. alot of times the fuses will blow at the slightest shock. the amp will still turn on if you have an amp with 2 fuses, it just wont be getting all the power it needs, which could be causing your problem. also, it is worth the hour and a half to mount everything down in your vehicle. you might check the kicker website, because i have herd rumors that kicker offers a lifetime warranty on almost all of their products. best of luck, and i hope you didnt fry your amp.

Kicker kx 800.4


Generally, if a Kicker amp has the power light lit and the protection light isn't lit, it's working. Are you sure that you have signal feeding the amp?

Are you sure your speakers are OK?

Kicker KX800.4 Protection light problem


If the voltage is sufficient on the B+ and remote terminals and the amp goes into protect with no speaker wires or RCAs connected to the amp, it probably has shorted output transistors.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Protection light is on


Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.
