I have kdc-mp922 stereo bought from garage sale.wat is security code?how do I obtain access without knowing code?anyone know a way 2 reset code?


The anti-theft code cannot be bypassed. It wouldn't be much good if it was so easy to defeat.

The only way to get your radio working is to enter the correct security code. Enter the search term "Kenwood radio code" into your search engine to find suppliers who claim to be able to sell you a code, but they need the radio serial number in order to assist you. Be careful who you use though, some companies just take your money, provide a useless code and refuse a refund so try and research the supplier before sending any money. If the supplier is bad then there will be plenty of complaints online about them.

Tip

How To Find Your Radio/Stereo Unlock Code


<span><span>As a security feature, the Radio or Stereo Unlock Code is meant to prevent another person from using the Stock Stereo from your vehicle without proof of ownership of the vehicle. To obtain the Unlock Code for your Radio or Stereo, you will need the title, VIN, proof of insurance, etc. to prove that you own the vehicle or are authorized to Unlock the Stereo using the factory generated code. At the dealership, this should always be a free service, but some dealerships may charge to generate or lookup the Stereo Unlock Code.<br /><br />When you have your Radio Unlock Code, use the Preset Keys to input this code into your Stereo. You should hear a Beep when this code has been entered, this is an Unlock Confirmation. To retrieve your code, try the following suggestions:<br /> <ol> <li>If you have your Service or Owners manual, usually in the Glove compartment, look for the Radio Security Code in there. Usually it is on a White, Credit Card looking card, in the Manual.</li> <li>You can also check on the Sides of the <a href="/../cars/t8671868-unplugged_battery_post#"><span>Glove</span><span> </span><span>box</span></a>, inside and outside, for the Radio Code. It may be on a Sticker. Sometimes you can also find the Code under the Ash tray, on or around the Door Jamb on the door, or on the <a href="/../cars/t8671868-unplugged_battery_post#"><span>vehicle</span></a>, and in the Trunk, or on the bottom of the Trunk Lid.</li> <li>You can also use your VIN in many cases by calling the Dealer Service Department, and they can lookup the Radio Code using the VIN.</li> <li>If all else fails, you will have to remove the Stereo to gain access to the Serial Number. Write this number down and contact your Local Dealership to retrieve the Unlock Code for your Stereo. There is no charge for this.</li></ol></span></span>

I need my radio re-coding but can not read the serial number on my radio but dont know who to contact to get it sorted, can it still be re-coded thanks.


The Serial Number is often on both a label and also stamped in the metal casing.

Try here to see if they can help

Mention this forum

Otherwise you will have to obtain your code from your Main Dealer or a Decoding Service (who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM) inside your radio

1989 bmw radio unlock code


First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc)
 
 
To see if your code is available here  for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .
 
If not then POST ANOTHER QUESTION

quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING
 

 
note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number
 
Otherwise try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

I lost the radio code from my BMW Indianapolis!


Go to your local BMW dealership with your vehicle ID # and the Radio serial #. The can look it up or call BMW direct to get it. Other Auto manufacturer's charge 20-25 to do this, I'm not sure what BMW will charge. Hope this helps

Radio code for 1992 bmw 325is


I have a 1987 BMW 325iC. The radio code was in a radio manual. It says right in the manual that if you don't write the code down, the radio is worthless without it. My battery died and I had to put the code into the radio. It started working again. That is why I wrote the code down everywhere I could think. I am going to engrave it into the front of the radio.
If you don't have the 5 digit number anywhere around the car, or in it's paperwork, you are SOL!
