'Protect Mode' usually means that there is a fault with the speakers, speaker wiring, or an internal defect.

Pull the unit from the dash and disconnect all of the speaker wires. Then turn it on and see if the "Protect" message displays. If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced.
