Question about Kenwood KDC-4019 CD Player

Kenwood KDC 4019

I bought this radio out of a junk yard and upon installation it's asking for a code. I took it to a Kenwood dealer who tried a few things and was unsuccessful. Is there anything that can be done or am I just out the money? Thanks! Robin

You can clear the code it you have the remote for it. No remote means no way to use the radio. If you know of a friend who has a Kenwood car stereo and the remote, you should be able to clear it yourself. It does not need to be the remote from that model of Kenwood. Most of the Kenwood remotes are the same for all the different models. I use the same remote for all models of Kenwoods that I get at my service center. You could always buy a remote, but if the problem is more than just clearing the code you would be wasting more money. I work at an authorized Kenwood service center and have over 18 years of experience with them. I have seen on rare occasions when the radio needs the code cleared, it has a problem with the microproccessor or the IC that is used for the security code. As I said, it is rare, but it can happen and may be safer to not spend anymore money on a new remote.

If you decide you want to buy a remote or you can borrow one from somebody, let me know and I will send you a link to a place you can buy one if needed, and then I will also post the procedure you need to use for clearing the code.

If the Kenwood dealer you took the radio to is a retail outlet and not a authorized Kenwood repair center, it is likely that they do not know the proper procedure for clearing the code. Kenwood does not tell their retail outlets how to do this procedure.

If you need me to post the procedure, please wait on rating me until I post for you.

Let me know how you want to do this.

Dave

Need to get the security code for Kenwood KDC-608OR


ok I just found this info online and they say it came from the service manual for that stereo so I hope it helps:

You will need a Kenwood RC-410 remote control. This remote works on KDC-519, KDC-X859, KDC-319, KDC-4019, KDC-MP919, KDC-X759, KDC-419, KDC-X459, KDC-MPV619, KDC-MPV7019, KDC-2022, KDC-2022V, KRC-435, KRC-535 and KDC-X959

To reset the code do the following:

1) Turn on the car.
2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears.
3) Press >>' and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around. Press the Eject button and then try it again.)
4) The screen will still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
5) Press the 2 key on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
6) Press the 2 key on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
7) Press the 7 key on the remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
8) The radio goes into All Off mode and you are set! Hit the SRC button on the faceplate to select CD, Radio, etc.

I was looking around and found these instruction that resets code but you need a remote to do this, i dont think there is anyway around without a remote.



KENWOOD SECURITY CODE CLEAR procedure


Your radio will require one of the following procedures.

Type 1
During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds (so that "..." disappears).
Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".

Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 3
Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations). "C" should display.
Then using your remote, enter your code.


IN YOUR RADIO: DISPLAY WILL ASK FOR CODE AND CODE ---- APPEARS ON, SO, HOLD .DISP AND PRESS VOL UP AT LEAST 3 SECONDS. THE "----" WILL DISSAPREAR. NOW TAKE YOUR REMOTE AND DIGIT "KCAR" WITH THE NUMBER PAD.
PRESS "5", "5", >>' (NEXT TRACK) YOU GOT A "K"
PRESS "2", "2","2" >>' (NEXT TRACK) YOU GOT A "C"
PRESS "2", >>' (NEXT TRACK) YOU GOT A "A"
PRESS "7", "7", YOU GOT A "R"
PRESS >>' (NEXT TRACK)
IF DISPLAY SHOWS "APPROVED" YOU'RE DONE ;)

Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is 5227 (KCAR)

* Press numeric key "5" ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key "2" ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key "2" ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key "7" ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
push buttom "track up" for 3 seconds
The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!

You can try and call 1800-Kenwood and ask a tech, in the past we had to send them to a kenwood service center. Some authorized kenwood dealers have a universal code.

Need Unlock Code for Kenwood MP235 car stereo


Look for a really small hole in the face plate. Put a tip of a pen into it. Press it in and then it should turn on. If this doesn't work, take it to a place that installs them, they'll help....Usually for free....

Just bought the radio off a friend now its locked


Is the code just a sequence of numbers, and is each number < 6? Try the font panel AM/FM presets, which are numbered for the input of the code...
