The "validation code" is displayed on the unit when you first place the update SD card (or DISC) in the kenwood unit.

I have a clarion nx501. The micro sd card that has the navigation on it is corrupted. the guys at clarion said that they can't cover this under warranty. please tell me what my options are. i heard...


Please read my post here: http://community.crutchfield.com/forums/p/22187/251957.aspx (pasted below).

I hope you bought your unit at a Clarion dealer....

Hi, (Team Crutchfield - please add this to your knowledg-base.)
I'm on my third NX501 (could have been the fourth if not for working directly with Clarion).
The SD Card corruption causes both loss of Navigation and intermittent Sirius start up (it'll never acquire signal).
Your unit needs to use the exact micro sd card it came with forever (it has a permanent serial number).
You have two choices:
1. Get Crutchfield to replace the unit
2. Call Clarion (I suggest this rather than ripping your dash apart over and over).
Here's what to do. Contact:
Ben Kwan
Customer Service Technical Representative
Clarion Corporation of America

800-347-8667 ext 4342
Direct Line: 310-217-4342
Fax: 310-217-4243
Ben will have you send your microsd and rebuild it for you and return it (likely with the firmware upgrade that addresses this issues on another microsd that can also be found here: http://clarion.com/ca/en/support/navigation_updates/NX501Fupdate/index.html).
While you're at it, update the Bluetooth firmware too: http://www.clarion.com/us/en/support/software/NX501/index.html
Once you get the card returned (THIS IS HUGELY IMPORTANT - EVERYONE WITH A Clarion NX501 SHOULD DO THIS!!!), back it up using Naviextras toolbox (the program clarion uses for map updates). You can get it here: https://clarion.naviextras.com/shop/portal/downloads
Once you follow these steps, barring your micosd physically or logically self destructing, you'll have an NX501 that's nearly problem free and backed up just in case that unfortunate corruption reoccurs.

Of Note: Ensure you insert the microsd card with the contacts facing up and do not force anything.

I'm extremely confident this will make a world of difference for you (and anyone suffering the microsd corruption of the Clarion NX501).
Regards,
Marc (mshmovie)

I have a Kenwood KDC-322 car radio. It says enter code. Does anyone know where i can go to get this code?


The only way that i know how to get the stereo to unlock is to remove the power from the stereo for about 10-15 seconds then reconnect power back to stereo this should reset the unit.

I have a Kenwood kdc mp828. I disconnected my battery cable and now can not remember my security code. I need to reset the unit so I can again listen to my stereo.


I read a blog on your site about Kenwood stereo's. I used that information to unlock my stereo security code. Albiet, I did have to figure out a bit of the code needed myself. I am again able to listen to music on my stereo.

Require unlock code for unit as no documentation, this unit arrived in a vehicle i bought from japan and i m eager to get it to work. HDV-910 Kenwood


As I have informed another person on this site; there are only two ways to aquire an unlock code, you'll have to send it back to Kenwood or ask the person who sold you the car. If you send it back to Kenwood they'll require proof of purchase.

I have a kenwood kdc-mpv619 when you turn it on it ask for a code well i am not the orignal owner of this unit i do not know the code and have no way of finding out what it could be i have been to other...


You are pretty much screwed; Kenwood will not release any information to help you unlock the unit period. They don't know if you stole it or even what the code is. The only way to get the problem fixed is to send the unit to Kenwood along with a legit sales receipt and they will unlock it for you. That's the only way it will happen, it's what I had to do and I'm a dealer.
