usually when my protection light would come on it meant there was a bad ground. moving the ground wire to a better location on your vehicle should work (at least for me it did lol)

Wrong impedance speakers hooked to amp...
Speaker wires shorted to car chassis....or wired wrong.
OR amp has blown transistors...take to service center.

when I put power to it the protection light stays on for a sec sometimes the clip light will flash but then all power goes off till I wiggle ground wire or unhook power and hook back up.

If the amp shuts down with no speakers hooked up...the amp is probably blown up.
Or it might be wired wrong.

I had it hooked straight to battery for 12v supply and to the remote wire on stereo and then the ground with rca's and that was it but if its blown I reckin i'll see on getting it fixed or buy a new one thanks for the help.
