Hi, this is usually caused by a short in one of the speakers or the speaker wires. Take the connector off the head unit and use an ohmmeter on each pair of speaker wires to check impedance. If impedance is less than 2 ohms on any pair of wires, check the speaker impedance for that pair. If the speaker impedance is low, replace the speaker--otherwise replace the wires. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have protect displaying on my stereo


This is most likely due to speaker, speaker wiring, or faulty headunit problems. To troubleshoot this you need to slide the deck out and disconnect only the speaker connections. Turn on the stereo and if it still says "protect" then it's most likely a faulty deck. Otherwise, repeat the procedure of plugging in one set of speakers at a time until the "protect" comes back on. This is now your faulty speaker line. This could be the wiring or the speaker causing the problem so you could try swapping a speaker that you know works. If the problem persists you'll have to run new wire in place of the faulty line.

How do I get out of protect mode on Kenwood. Kdv-415u?


This is what it says int he owners manual.

PROTECT (Blink): The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protection function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. If the "PROTECT" code does not disappear consult your nearest service center.

The protection function is activated when the speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. (The reset button is that little pinhole button below and to the right of the volume control). If you do this and the "PROTECT" code doesn't disappear, you'll have to consult a service center. Further, if you had this professionally installed, they should be obligated to fix the issue for you (hopefully).
