Step 1:



The radio is secured to the frame of the vehicles dash, with screws located behind the plastic dash panel (surrounding the radio).

This plastic dash panel unsnaps from the body of the vehicles dash.

Step 2:


The bottom of the plastic dash panel, just below the bottom of the radio, can be lifted up.

Look up from the below the radio and you will notice rectangular openings or insertion points where a flat tool can be inserted to pry out the bottom of the plastic dash panel.

With a flat head screwdriver or other flat object, pry out the bottom of the plastic dash panel.

Step 3:


Once the bottom edge of the plastic dash panel has been pulled out, the sides of the plastic dash panel will begin to separate from the body of the vehicles dash.

You will now be able to put your fingers into the openings on the sides of the plastic dash panel. Gently pull the plastic dash panel until it unsnaps from the body of the vehicle's dash.

Step 4:


Once all the clips on the plastic dash panel have been unsnapped, the dash can be pulled out.

The top of the plastic dash panel will have wires attached to the clock, hazard and defrost switches. You do NOT need to unplug the connectors plugged into them.

Move the plastic dash panel up and set it on top of the body of the dash.

Step 5:


The radio is held in with four (4) phillips screws / 8 mm bolts.
Remove the screw/bolts.

Pull the radio forward.

Unplug the antenna cable, and 2 white connectors from the rear of the radio.

Step 6:

If installing a different radio to your Corolla, buy a "snap on" adapter loom which eliminates the need for cutting any wires (Toyota --> New radio brand), from your local auto accessory store.

GOOD LUCK !!!

Common Kenwood Security Codes
Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:

KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models.
3051 - This is the security code which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models.
1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners.
Entering Your Kenwood Security Code
If the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code.

The procedure to enter your security code differs on various models of Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common procedures:

Type 1
During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds until the "..." display disappears.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 3: Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset keys until the display shows the letter 'C'.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Entering Letters on your Kenwood Remote
To enter a letter using your Kenwood remote, press a button once for the first letter, twice for the second letter, and three times for the third letter -- then press the Track Up or Next Track key to send the letter.

To send the letter 'A', press the 2 key once and then press the Track Up key. To send the letter 'B', press the 2 key twice and then press the Track up key.

Finally, when you are done entering all of the letters, press and hold the Track Up button for 3 seconds.

The key sequence to enter the security code KCAR is:

5
5
Track Up
2
2
2
Track Up
2
Track Up
7
7
Track Up
Your Kenwood should then enter tuner mode.

A Security Code Bug in some Kenwoods
There is a reported bug in the security code handling of some Kenwood stereos. In models with thie bug, the security code is stored incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.

In models with this bug, you have to decrement the third character of the security code by one. If your security code was 1111, you would enter your security code as 1101. If your security code was 9999, you would enter 9989.

It sounds like it could be a bad ribbon cable. There are two ribbon cables in the deck, so it could be either one, or both. There is also a face position sensor lever inside the deck that goes bad.

Unable to remove faceplate or eject cd on kenwood


remove the to of the unit, then the two in the actual cd player, pull out cd player, there will be two more screws,these hold the faceplate assembly in place, remove them. This will allow you to pull a small plastic hook down to let the face plate slide out. then remove the face plate from it's holder, slide it out. Remove the four screws on the back of the faceplate inside the there is a very small piece of plastic that has a hole at one end and squared at the other. This is the problem causing piece. I suggest super gluing this piece where it attaches to the inside of the faceplate. This should fix the problem.

I would also check the speaker outputs from the deck. If any of the speaker outputs are touching any metal on the vehicle, it could give that message.
