SOURCE: Kenwood car stereo KDC-W3534 : warning message PROTECT

This is a safety feature and it usually suggest that there is a problem with the internal amplifier, it could also be a trapped speaker wire. Remove the radio and check if any of the cables have been damaged and if you power up the radio with the speaker plug disconnected that will tell you if the fault is in the car or the radio

if the power is not turned on (or it is on, but will be off immediately,) the speaker wire may have a short-circuit or touched the chasis of the vehicle and the protection function may have been activated. therefore the speaker wire should be checked. the press the reset button. also it will do that if it gets hotter than 60 degrees celsius or 140 f

SOURCE: hi, i can not figure

The model that you refer to has the reset button just before the 1 Button. Press that for a second with a pen or something of the the same point size and there is no need for force. This will reset the head unit. All personal settings are lost when reseting the unit. However if it goes into protect again then there could be a mistake in the installation somewhere, most likely incorrect speaker installation or speaker cable shorting on metal somewhere. There could be other reason but these would be most likely the cause. Good luck dreamsystems

SOURCE: Kenwood kdc-148 is in protect

A car audio component like an amplifier (or in this case a headunit) is most likely to go into protection mode when there is a short in one of the speaker outputs-- in other words, if the + and - ends of one of the speaker leads are touching, this can cause damage to the internal amplifier of the unit. Some units will respond by putting the amplifier into "protection" mode, so that it does not damage itself. Check connections on the back of your unit, or take it back to the shop that installed it.

Hello.. sorry to hear you are having problems. With the Kenwood car stereos, when they detect a bad speaker in the car, they go into protect mode to keep from burning up the outputs of the stereo. Either you have a bad speaker in the car or a speaker wire that is touching metal (grounded out). You can cut all of the speaker wires loose at the radio and reset the radio. Then turn the radio on and hook each speaker up one at a time until it goes into protect and that will let you know where your problem is located. Hope this helps and good luck with your venture!

My kenwood head deck kdc-mp6036 shows on the screen protect what's wrong with it


Hi,

A "PROTECT" message/display normally indicates a problem with your speaker or your speaker wires. Pls check for any open or shorted (busted speakers) or if any of the wires are touching the chassis/ground.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
