SOURCE: my kicker amp turns off
It sounds like you may have the load impedance too low. How many voice coils per woofer? How many ohms is each coil? If you have DVC woofers, are the coils for each woofer wired in series or parallel? Are the speakers wired in series or parallel. Let me know if you need me to clarify anything.

The rerason for this problem is the remote wire is connected and works fine so when the power in the car is switched on the remote line tries to turn the amp on so it gets a power signal but the red light shuts of because the amp is not getting sufficient power from the direct power line from the battery. Check the power line that runs directly to the battery straight to the amp. Maybe you should rewire the power line and that should solve your problem.

SOURCE: red protection light
If the amp is going into protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following.
With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.
If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp and disconnect signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp almost certainly has shorted output transistors and will need to be repaired.
