You can try and call 1800-Kenwood and ask a tech, in the past we had to send them to a kenwood service center. Some authorized kenwood dealers have a universal code.

I need the code to unlock this system please help bought used at the swapmeet don't have the code.


the code is an anti theft device there is only two ways to get the code 1. when the radio was first sold it came with a card that has the code 2. contact kenwood directly they have a master code for each specific model that will unlock it. However they wont give you the code unless your a car audio dealer or can show proof that you were the origanal purchaser needing serial# on unit and reciept

I took the battery out of and now my Kenwood Stereo asks for a code.


Reset the radio by pushing the small button on left side of the #1 preset. it is probably pulling the code for the anti theft protection. if you already have a lock code use it to unlock the tuner otherwise reset the tuner

I need the security code for my Kenwook KDC-MP435U cd player. I bought the car and it has been locked since i got it. I need music to drive!!


Press and hold the reset button (very small concave button to the right and below the main knob) You will have to set up everything on the unit because this will wipe the settings. It will also set the unit to the default of not using the security code. I recommend setting a code so if it locks accidentally, you know what the code is. There is no factory default for this on Kenwoods...it is user programmable.

Security code Lockout


I had a similar issue with a head unit in a newer Volkswagen. There was an unlock code burried in the vehicle's owners's manual.

Since your stero is an aftermarket model, I would bet the unlock code is in the manual for the head unit.

Kenwood radio is locked


Go to your local dealership for your make of car. ask them if they do radio/cd player re-codes.. if not they should be able to put you in touch with someone who does as they use them all the time to re-code their trade in car sound systems... it usually costs about 15 quid or so...hope this helps..cheers.

Security code


I wish I could have found you a better solution, but the following is Kenwood's official answer according to their FAQ:

"If you do not know the security code for your unit, you will need to take the unit to a Kenwood authorized service center to have it decoded. The code feature can only be activated when the code has been entered twice, so it isn't accidentally activated. The service center will often require you to provide a proof of purchase as this feature is designed for theft prevention and the proof of purchase will ensure you are the rightful owner of the product."
