Check your speaker load. It probably should be 4 ohms per channel. Also, if you are bridging then you must double your ohms load. It may be that your old amp could tolerate a lower impedence (ohms load) than the new amp. Do this now so you don't fry your amp. Good luck.

SOURCE: how do i reset my 4000 watt lanzar vibe 286 from being in protect mode

You can only reset it by disconnecting power to it. If it is in protect you may want to check your speakers and speaker wires for shorts and/or grounds. If they check out all right you may have internal problems in the amp.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty.

Amp blows fuses

Are you using the correct fuse? if so,
more then likely, you don't have a good ground. Try grounding to something else that has more direct connection to your frame. If that doesnt work, try getting larger power cables.
I had the same problem with my 2500w xplodes all I had to do was get a thicker cable for the ground and battery connection. What was happening, was it was needing more power then the wire and fuse could handle, so it would blow the fuse, since the higher you have it, the more power it needs to feed the watts.
I would try grounding it directly to the frame on a good part of the frame before spending another $70 on new power cables though.

Lanzar vibe 230 400 watts amp

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Lanzar Vibe 1200D protection light

You will need to show it to a service technician as it seems the output section has blown so it remains in protect mode. One reason (could be) that the input to the amp was high and may have been clipping for some time before the amp decided it could take it no more

Amp LED flashes on but right back off

This sounds like a problem with the power input to the amplifier; it's possible, but unlikely, that your CD player is causing it. Before you can do any real troubleshooting, you need a voltmeter. When your CD player is turned on, you should get a voltmeter reading of around 12 volts at the amplifier's remote terminal and B+ (power) terminal. If your main power wire doesn't show voltage, check for a loose or corroded connection at the battery or fuseholder, and try replacing the fuse (even if it looks okay). If there's no voltage on the remote wire, it may be pinched or shorted between the CD player and the amplifier, or the CD player may be faulty. If you get a good voltage reading on both wires, but the amp won't turn on, then you have a problem in the amplifier.
