Question about Car Audio Receivers

1 Answer

Response to receiver help

We don't have an authorized service center nearby, but there is an authorized dealer. Maybe they would help me and use one of their remotes. I know this sounds stupid, but should there be a light on the top of the remote so that I know if there is any power? I'm assuming so because there is a small buld there. I've tried numerous new batteries and it still isn't working. Without the remote I can't enter the code just like you said.

I appreciate your help. I looked over all 57 pages of the help you've given people and saw how many times you've answered the same question about the code. You must have the patience of a saint to keep repeating the instructions!

I don't think the remote has a red light. Unless the bulb you are talking about is on the actual top where the buttons are, if so, then maybe it does. I just can't remember right now. The bulb in the front of the remote is infrared and that light is not visible to the human eye.

See if any service center will take a quick look at the remote for you for free, just to tell you if it works or not. Most shops have a infrared detector that they can just point the remote at and press a button and let you know if the infrared is working. If it is putting out infrared light then the remote is probably good.

Hope this help, and thanks so much for the compliment and the great rating on the other post.

You can try and call 1800-Kenwood and ask a tech, in the past we had to send them to a kenwood service center. Some authorized kenwood dealers have a universal code.

Hy, can u help me? how I can change the safety code?


Do you know the code already or are you trying to bypass it? If you don't know it, this is what you need to do. (taken from Kenwood's website)

Q: How do I reset my security code?
A: If you do not know the security code for your unit, you will need to take the unit to a Kenwood authorized service center to have it decoded. The code feature can only be activated when the code has been entered twice, so it isn't accidentally activated. The service center will often require you to provide a proof of purchase as this feature is designed for theft prevention and the proof of purchase will ensure you are the rightful owner of the product.

Here is the link to find an authorized dealer able to reset the code.
