This is the only way to clear the code. You must have the remote to do this, it will not work without the remote. I work at an authorized Kenwood service center and tell you for certain that this is the only way it can be done. If you do not have a remote, you will either need to buy one or borrow one from somebody else who has a Kenwood radio. Most all Kenwood car stereo remotes will work, it does not need to be from the same model number but it must be a Kenwood car stereo remote. If you can not find a remote for this then you will need to take the radio to an authorized Kenwood service center and they will usually do it for a small fee.

The first step is the only part of this procedure that you do not use the remote.

1. During code request mode, press the Track UP key for at
least 3 seconds while holding down the AUTO key. (– – – –
will disappear)
2. Enter, “KCAR” with the remote controller as described below.
• Press the remote controller 5 key twice, and press the Track
Up key. (Enters a “K” )
• Press the remote controller 2 key three times, and press
the Track Up key. (Enters a “C” )
• Press the remote controller 2 key once, and press the Track
Up key. (Enters an “A” )
• Press the remote controller 7 key twice, and press the Track
Up key. (Enters an “R” )
3. Security function is canceled and unit sets to All-Off mode.
4. Code request mode appears if a mistake was made in entering
the numbers.

I had someone change the radio in my 1998 camry and it did work. My battery went dead, dead and once I replaced battery the radio now doesn't work. Why>


Car radios have security codes to prevent them from being stolen. If they lose power, such as when replacing the battery, they lock out. This makes them worthless to anyone trying to steal them. You need to have the unlock code to reactivate the radio. It is provided with the vehicle at purchase, or by the retailer when selling replacements

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

How do I get my stereo working? My battery died and now I think it needs a code, but it's not the original radio.


wow no symptoms. no sound sure, but in a/m f./m , cassette, or CD and or USB port (MP3) are all dead too>? and is the dial dead TOO>? 100% dead, is that it? ill assume !00%
factory radio have password codes , never aftermarket radios.
so???
ask kenwood, the answer is NO !
your operators guide (jeep) is useless for swapped in radios.

how?, is super easy and 10x on a bench.
no matter.
there is but one 1 wire for power, (on all aftermarket radios) this is a standard, RED wire, must have 12vdc, (ever use a simple voltmeter)?
if radio case and black wire is grounded. are they'
if yes the radio is DOA.

some DOA radios (10000s of models made in 40 years)
have fuses inside or in back of radio, look on back first.
if you seen nothing there, it got none.
open lid, see fuses inside,?

Unlock radio


With Fords in Australia you disconnect the battery for 2 minutes, then when you connect the battery and turn the radio on it will ask for the code, press you channel pre-set buttons, 1>6 across the front of the stereo using your code, then your radio should work, Merry Christmas

Battery is gone on toyota verso, wont open and wont start


When I have a car with a hood that won't open, I'll go through the grill (a matter of Torx(tm) or phillips screwdrivers/sockets/small pry bars, etc.) and operate the hood latch by reaching up under the hood from below, or even disassemble the entire hood latch away from the frame (usually 3-4 10mm machine screws).
This will get you into the engine compartment.
Try to get into your engine compartment sooner rather than later, since a flat dead battery will cause the stereo radio to assume that its been stolen, and then it'll require entry of your 3,4 or 5-digit unlock code before the radio works again.
Your radio unlock code can be found on a card that comes from the dealership at the time of sale. If you need to ask the dealership for your unlock code and they charge you money, consider calling/dealing with a different dealership (its a 2-second computer lookup for them) or post another query to www.FixYa.com asking for your car radio unlock code, specifying the car's year/make/model/engine type and also the radio model number - you'll have to yank the radio to get the model number.
Your car's "engine type" comes from the 8th digit of your car's VIN code (the 17-digit number visible thru the windshield at the bottom of the driver's side).

I need the radio code for a 2000 ML 450 bought used and code card is not available. the vin # 4JGAB72E5YA179735


Hi,
According to your requirement you have to purchase radio code or you can use car radio decoder software to decode your car radio. If you have experienced a dead battery, disconnected the factory radio harness or disconnected the battery to the vehicle then you must need radio code. Better to purchase a radio code. Before purchase determine of your radio type and do the following steps. The radio must be in LOC mode NOT in INOP mode. Turn the ignition ON. Press and hold presets buttons 2 & 3 or 1 & 4 for approximately 10 seconds. The radio display changes from LOC to a three-digit number. Write this number down. You will then have fifteen seconds max before the next step must be performed. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one. You now have a six or four-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 3 and the last three digits are from STEP 5. If you have a four digit number, it will show all four digits at the same time. Then purchase the code mentioning your car model and unlock the radio. You can purchase your code from radio-code.com by credit or debit card.

Had an electrical issue with the used ford that I purchased recently from a used car lot, and it locked up the stereo/radio. It is a Kenwood 5QWx4 MP3 WMA, also has KDC-MP235. I can get it to ask me for...


I would suggest looking in the phone book under car audio. Look for a Kenwood dealer. This is the only place that you can get the codes from. These codes are an anti-theft device put in the stereos. They will have to have the Serial number on the stereo. But I have searched all over the internet and paid hundreds of dollars on sites that promise the codes. And I have had no luck finding one that is legitimate.

I have a 2000 kia sephia . How do i unlock the anti theft radio code . So i can use the CD ?


You will need a unlock code to get your radio working again. Radio security codes are usually written in your car manual or given to you when you purchase the vehicle. If you do not have the radio security code, you would have to obtain it from the local Kia dealer.

Hope this helps
