It is an anti-thieft feature so the radio becomes worthless if it is stolen from the car. If you take your car to the dealer they can reset the radio. You will usually only need the registration from the car. They will usually charge a standard fee so call around for the best deal. The work will take approx. 30 seconds.

The radio on my 2000 crv locked up after we had to disconnect the battery. now it won't work. i didn't know about the code to unlock it, and pushed all the buttons, trying to get it to turn back on. now i...

You can enter a 4-digit security code which must be used when the unit is removed from the vehicle, or the constant power source is disconnected from the unit. When constant power is restored to the unit, the security code must be entered before the unit becomes operational.

If the code is lost or forgotten I am afraid you will have use an on-line radio unlocking/re-code service. Failing that it will be a dealer, whatever you find more suitable will cost.
Good luck with it

I bought a kenwood kdc-x693 and i dont have the security code for it what can i do?

If you do not have the security code for the kenwood, you can disconnect the battery which should clear out the code (I would leave it off for at least 15 minutes), reconnect the battery and then follow the manual to enter the security code (Page 25)

My rado loks, how can I it unlok


OK, the unit will usually lock itself after it has completely been removed from the power mains. For example, when you have disconnected the car battery.

This code is initialized for security purposes. You will find this code in the original packaging of the radio. Have a look at the manual on how to type it in.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

93 honda accord - The Battery was disconnected

Hi; I do not believe the need the s/n from the radio. If you can contact the dealer where you baught the car new, they will have the code in their sevice department records. Just tell them the VIN for the car and they should give it to you free. When you get it it is 5 digits in length. Press and hold the code button untill you here a beep. Release the 'code' ( the am/fm ) button and enter the code numbers using the preset buttons as the numbers (1-5or else 6).

Don'let them charge you for giving you the code.

Car cd player code breaker

for your kdc-mp528 will work whith code KCAR entered from the remote

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 and hold the "Auto" button and "Track up" (next track button on the right) 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:

Track Up
Track Up
Track Up
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.

i hope this works for you.
