Question about Kenwood KDC-519 CD Player
Unless you entered a code yourself when the radio was first installed, there should be no code needed.
Posted on Apr 29, 2009
I used to work as a car audio installer. We would see a lot of people that came in with forgotten codes on these Kenwood decks. We had a way by using a specific remote control and a specific sequence of buttons to reset the code. Unfortunately, I don't remember which remote or sequence to do it (it's been awhile). But any authorized kenwood dealer can do it. I don't know of any directive from Kenwood making you have proof that you bought it legally, it is probably up the dealer.

Its too bad when they made these radios they didnt include a secret way to reprogram the code. i've had this many times and the only way we can correct this problem is for a servicer to buy a service manual< (unless you take the radio to an authorized dealer)Find out the part #@ for the eeprom Ic and (newer radios I am told the code is stored inside the main microprocessor)order the chip- and install the IC into the radio all for a cost of between 65 to 100 bucks!! Im also told a dealer has a way to retrive the info you need but they cannot do it unless they make sure your the owner of the radio by a bill of sale or check with the local police to see if the serial # is on the hot sheet. They akso wont retrive any info on a radio with a scratched off serial # Go to a local dealer and have them retrive the info for you or sorry to say it may not be worth it. as abd warehouse I seen last weekend had Kenwood radios w cd for 129.00 and Up INSTALLED!! Good Luck
