    It’s like a protection that the head unit goes into when it senses a problem. It’s common with these units

    When does the amp go into protect mode? And what has led you to the head unit being the fault?

    You can hear music out of the speakers for one second and then it goes to amp guard.

    I disconnected individually all of the speakers from the head unit and it still did it.

    I’m not positive it’s the head unit but I don’t want to replace all the speakers and find out it’s not that

    Works then doesn’t work, bang on it reset it then it works next day it doesn’t.

    I’m positive it’s the head unit

    Can I replace this with the newer CMD6???

    Or what can I install and still use my two remotes( in dash and stern of boat)
