Protect Mode on Kenwood KDC-MP335

My Kenwood KDC-MP335 is staying in a constant protect mode. I took my car through the car wash and it shorted something out. I put a fan under the hood of my car and began to dry things out. I checked back in a couple hours and the cd player worked/sent signal to the speakers for maybe 10 seconds then went back into protect mode. I kept the fan running and checked it again about 3 hours later, the cd player then worked about 30 seconds, then went back into protect mode. At that point I thought I'd just let it dry out until the next day. The next day, it was in protect mode immediately after turning the ignition on and after resetting it, it still went into protect mode without ever allowing the play sources to be accessed like it did before. Does it need to be unlocked by a dealer or something or is there still a short or ground issue. What do I do? Any ideas? Thanks.

So i removed the device phone and thought i was pair it again. Now i cannot connect it back again. its not my phone because i can connect it in my husbands car as well. i have an iphone 5. what is happening and why wont my phone pair to the device?

This is very simple to do just take your face plate off and were you see a red light blinking just get like a bobby pin or something and pit it through the hole and the radio will reset and that should fix your problem

Kenwood KDC-MP732 CD Player in protect mode how do i get it off had a blown speaker fixed it and still in protect mode


Protect Mode (Blink): The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protection function is activated.

Solution: Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button.

Here is a copy of the Instruction Manual for the Kenwood KDC-X790 and KDC-MP732.

Kenwood kdc-mp208 stuck in ''protect'' mode....


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.

My KDC BT742U recently went into protect mode after I went over a small bump. I drive a 2001 F150 Supercrew that had the stock stereo in it before the new kenwood. No problems had ever occurred before...


What has happened, is the bump has caused a broken joint on the pcb I have seen this many times in my shop. You need to take the actual unit in for repair, I mean the "Bump" and the "Problem" are indeed connected, and this is exactly what happens.

This deck is in protect mode


A couple things may cause this:
If a speaker wire shorted out (either a voice coil or the wire itself is grounded; touches the vehicles chassis ground)
Solution: disconnect each speaker from the deck and see if it turns back on. 90% of the time thats the problem.

It could be overheating.

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!
