Default Amp help

I recently bought a Soundstream Stealth 1200.1d amp from Amazon.It said it was in like new conditon. At first glance i realized it had no external fuses. I hooked the amp up the red LED light came on indicating it went into Protect mode.I thought it might just be a grounding issue in my car so i tried grounding it in different places and the same thing happens. But when i pull the power cable out it switches to indicate power and cuts off. But soon as i hook it back up straight back to protect mode. Would it be possible that since i dont have a fuse in the power wire that the amp will not work? or if the amp just defective?
just want some input before i send it back
