When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect itagain, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your carradio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. Ifyou do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's servicecentre and get them to enter this code for you.

    Well, the only problem here is if you don't have your particular manual that came with the Kenwood deck....There are a few codes you can try though, the obvious 1234, another one I found on the web 3051, and KCAR....try those and see if they work. For instructions how to do this let me know.

My car radio is a kenwood DPX-7021MPi it came with my second hand car but with no code pliz help me

There is no way to "crack" this, you must use the code. I suggest you contact Kenwood and ask them for help. I suspect they will send you to a Kenwood dealer who will be able to gain access to the code you need.

My Kenwood car radio needs a code ,model for my car radio is. Dpx7021mpg

A number of Kenwood stereos are sold which use the same security code. Some of the most commonly encountered codes are:
1234 - Not a factory default, but a commonly found security code when attempting to figure out the code for a Kenwood radio purchased second or third-hand.
3051 - Security code included in a number of Kenwood radio manuals.
KCAR - A common Kenwood model security code that has been found to work across a number of models of the stereo

Kenwood kdc 7009 - just bought car w/ stereo in it, but no remote or codes ?

Look for a small hole in the face plate. Take the tip of a pen and try holding it in for a few seconds. Re-setting it should work.....
