Re: fixing kenwood tk-80
If you have the schematics try to follow the voltage lines with a volt meter. If this is beyond your capabilities then I would suggest taking the radio to a service center or sending the radio to Kenwood.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

There is no way you will be able to unlock your radio. If you are lucky and the dealer left the "Cloning" Option checked in programmation you *should* be able to clone it with your other TK-7160 with a Cloning Cable.
If this does not work, you'll need to contact Kenwood and by Serial # they will tell you who was the original dealer. Then, contact the dealer and ask for the PW or maybe they'll unlock it for you for 20$-30$.
If the dealer is not the last person who put a PW in the unit, kenwood will have to do it. (~80$-100$.)
After a lot of experimenting, I decided to try powering the Autocom with a 9v battery and that fixed the issue. Evidently, the power from the bike was dirty - I'll have to filter the power line, find a different place to tap into or remain battery powered.
