    I didnt know HU's could go into protect. did you pull it and check the fuses? maybe just the fuse blown?

    very well could just need to be reset. most HU's will have a reset button somewhere that you have to push in with a pin or something. try that.

    Re: My Head unit powers up in protect! Help!?

    ya just to reset the power to it.. so let my get this straight.. you touched a wrench from the positive of the amp to the chassis of the vehicle? and thats all that happened? if so check the fuse on the back.. and reset it by disconnecting the neg and reconnecting
