    i forget it my code for my cd player

  • Anonymous Mar 12, 2014

    I took this radio out of my old vehicle when I sold it, and am now wanting to install it in my current vehicle. I have had the radio for a few years, but have lost the remote to it, due to moving several times. Is there a way to retrieve the unlock code for it, or to enter the KCAR code without having the remote?

I have a Kenwood KDC - MP 828 that I bought from a friend and it's asking for an unlock code how do I go about this

Hello if you have the remote and the unlock key number
Use the above link to the manual
If you don't have the remote you will need to get one as it is required to input the code
Need the code ask Kenwood ,the person you bought it from or take it to a local radio shack to get it read

I bought this radio from a friend and its asking me for the unock you kno how to unlock it? if so get at me at

Tell friend to take it to the store where it was purchased, they have all the codes for equipment sold. If not an aftermarket unit, code is usually in the owners manual or hidden somewhere around the glove box.

My battery died in my truck and when i replaced it my faceplate asked me for a security code which i don't have

well that is a problem. The security code is usually on a card with the owners manual and is unique to the radio. The only way to get it if you dont have the card with the number on it is to obtain the radio serial number from the chassis and your trucks VIN# and submit both to the truck distributor to get it for you. This is a security factor to prevent theft so no one can crack it and the so called expert fixes on disk for $$$ do not work so dont waste your money....., only the solution I just supplied to you.

No sound from my front and back speakers in my van ive got subs

Make sure that when you hooked up your 4 channel amp to the remote turn on lead it is the same as the sub. Only hook amps to the Blue w/ white strip. The solid blue is power antenna lead and will lose power when on CD, ipod etc and only stays powered when the Tuner is on. Hope this fixes your problem.
