It sounds like the amp has shorted output transistors. They would need to be replaced.

Xplod XM-554ZR Car Audio Amplifier: powr/protect light comes on red not green...


Hi, disconnect all speakers from unit and try again - if red light still shows then your amp has died.
If the light goes green, then start testing for shorted speaker/wiring. This includes speaker wiring to vehicle shorts - there should be an o/c reading on your meter

How to switch protection off (red LED to blue)


The protection light is on indicating a short or over- voltage problem. If you disconnect the speaker leads and the light goes off or green then the problem is a shorted speaker or wiring problem. If the light stays red the problem is inside the amp and it will need service and parts.

Red protection light stays on all time....


try disconnecting one at a time each speaker till the red turns to green. One of your speakers may be bad. Amp is just telling you that its clipping and overheating due to the change in ohms of a shorted or bad speaker. Its also possible the amp is on its last leg due to heat. Heat breaks down electronics part and eventually get worse.

Havin problem with a1200 class a/b amp it ligts green and red at same time after hooking in remote how doi fixdo i need diagram to fix


Make sure you don't have any shorts on your speaker wires or rca cables. Unplug one at a time, the turn on power until it stays green with no protect light, then you know what input is causing the short. If you remove all speaker wires and rca wires and all you have connected is the ground, power(12volts) and remote and it still lights up red/green(in protect mode) then your problem is the amp.

Unit only stays on for 4 seconds then turns itself off.


This is a short or unstable ohm load. Remove all speaker wire connections to see if the amp will stay on.
If the problem goes away when disconnecting the speaker wires try this:
1) Check volume level on zone one and zone 2 if connected. If it is too high the amp will go into protect mode and shut off exactly as you described.
2) Make sure no wires are touching any other wire or the metal surface of the amp. This will cause a short and send the amp into protect mode.

Power light turns from green to red protect mode and then there is no sound coming from my speakers


there are 2 reasons for it to be going into protect mode 1 is heat 2 is the load on it. if it is going into protect mode soon after it starts there is a problem with the speaker. if it is after it has been on for a while it is that the amp itself is overheating. hope this answers your question

It appears that the amp is going into protect mode. To eliminate external causes, read through the following page. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Amplifer Not Operating


The red led is the protect indicator.

When this stays red you have either a bad speaker or the amp has a blown channel. Those are the 2 most common problems with the protect light staying red.

Disconnect the speakers and if the amp turns on without speakers, you most likely have a bad speaker. Take them in to a service center and have them checked.

if you disconnect the speakers and it still stays red, you most likely have a bad channel in the amp.

There is nothing you can do with that except to take it in to be serviced.

Both of the possibilities are common problems with all car amplifiers.

Since you checked the wiring, there is really no other end user actions that can help you on this.

Sorry for the bad news, but if this information was of value to you a good rating would be appreciated and appropriate.

Let me know if you require any further help, I have been repairing car and home amplifiers for over 17 years and can help you on most questions
