SOURCE: Protect mode Kenwood KDC MP438U in dash reciever

Anytime there is a short circuit or your battery down low enough you will recieve this signal. If you press the little "reset button" using a small pin or screwdriver your unit should reboot without the "PROTECT" signal. If seeing this "PROTECT" sign is a result of jumping your car, this will fix it. If the signal persists, then there is still a short circuit and you need to check your connection with the battery. Most likely it is touching the chasis or some othere metal.

SOURCE: kenwood kdc-438u stuck in protect mode what do i

Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver and turn it back on. If it does not go into protection, your receiver is ok. Re connect speakers one at a time and test until your receiver goes into protection, then trace the speaker wire to the speaker for cuts or shorts. If you have a multimeter, switch it to ohms and check the speaker for a dead short, you may have a blown speaker. Hope this helps.

Protect indicates that there is a short or a grounding problem usually within the speakers2_bing.gif or the speaker wiring. Locate and press the reset button (pinhole). If protect comes back then disconnect all speakers, reset and connect them back one at a time until protect shows up again. This will help you find out where the unwanted DC signal is coming from. If protect shows up when all speakers are disconnected, then it may need service.

Turn the unit on and it plays a few minutes then it goes into protect mode.


pnOne of your speakers is grounded. Start disconnecting them one by one behind the radio after it enters protect mode and then it will turn back on.

In protect mode


If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage.
Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage, or a bare wire touching the body of the car

New kenwood kdc-mp242 installed turns on but no sound


The Blue/White wire, Brown wire, and Blue wire???? These don't have to be connected unless you are using a separate Power Amp...if you are, then the Blue/White wire needs to be used to switch on the power amp. Here is a link to Kenwood for your KDC-MP242 Instruction Manual. Reference page 16.
