Question about Kenwood KDC-4019 CD Player
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.
