HelloAny one channel circuit of the amplifier has any sort of trouble, the amp will go to protect mode. It may be a direct short in it he output circuit. This is the common fault for these type of amps. A through check should be done to find out the reason. You must have sound knoledge in electronics, and experience to do this work by yourself. In most cases, unlike TVs, amps circuits are quite complicated and user cannot do it by themselves. OK.
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. Hopefully you have warranty .
.A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you
could be that the voltage that is going to the amp is to low or something is shorting out inside the amp if it is voltage then you need to add a secondary battery if that dont fix it then its inside the amp
my kicker was doing the same thing, and come to find out the power was loose,
1.check power connection,
2. check ground
3. check remote wire.
4. check that your amp isn't mounted on -metal-
5. check your fuses onboard the amp,
6.check you speaker wire
7.check your rca jacks
8. check that your gains aren't too high for the wattage
With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connectes to the vehicle) 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.
Do this with no RCA or speaker wires connected. Let me know what you find.
