Question about Kenwood KDC-W3534A CD Player
Kenwood KDC-MP438U. I work for a trucking company and have recently installed this model stereo. I had to do some work behind the dash, so I disconnected the stereo, and now that I have re-installed it has went into "Protect" mode. How do I remove the Protect mode. THX
Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!

Also if that don't work check wires.. Protect mode is there to protect the radio because it is sensing a speaker wire touching or grounding out or power wires are touching. Usually it will blow a fuse on radio but not always.

Anytime there is a short circuit or your battery down low enough you will recieve this signal. If you press the little "reset button" using a small pin or screwdriver your unit should reboot without the "PROTECT" signal. If seeing this "PROTECT" sign is a result of jumping your car, this will fix it. If the signal persists, then there is still a short circuit and you need to check your connection with the battery. Most likely it is touching the chasis or some othere metal.
