KENWOOD SECURITY CODE CLEAR procedure


Your radio will require one of the following 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 (so that “…” disappears).
Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".

Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 3
Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations). "C" should display.
Then using your remote, enter your code.


Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is 5227 (KCAR)

* Press numeric key “5” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key

The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!

SOURCE: MY KENWOOD CAR CD PLAYER IS SAYING PROTECT??

Hi,

Kenwood head units show "protect" when there's a problem with the speaker outputs. This might mean a shorted speaker wire, a blown speaker, or an internal defect in the head unit. Once the condition that's causing the "protect" mode is fixed, the CD player should be back in normal mode the next time you turn it on.

If it's staying in "protect", then you'll definitely have to remove the stereo and do some troubleshooting to fix it. Many car audio stores will do system troubleshooting, for a fee. If you want to do it yourself, here's what you need to do:

Pull the Kenwood unit from the dash and disconnect all the speaker wires. Turn it on and see if the "protect" message displays. If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced. If it doesn't, then turn it off, and re-connect one speaker. Turn it on again and see if it displays "protect".

If it works with a single speaker connected, keep re-connecting the others until you identify the speaker that's causing the problem. There may be a wiring problem or defective speaker in that location.

If it displays "protect" with a single speaker connected, then disconnect that one and try a different one. If all the speakers cause a "protect" mode, then you're probably back to a defective head unit, unless your friend managed to blow all your speakers at once.

Thanks,

I have a Kenwood KDC-116S in my truck and found that it is causing my battery to drain . When I disconnect the battery it draws a spark. When I disconnect the radio lead I no longer get the spark. Can...


Yes.

The YELLOW wire is connected to 'constant' 12v power. This is necessary for the receiver to retain the memory settings (i.e. station presets etc).

So, yes... your unit will draw power, but this will be very minimal.

Try disconnecting the Yellow wire for a few days and see if this makes any difference. If not, you will need to inspect the wiring loom to determine if there is another short somewhere. If everything looks ok, then the short must be somewhere else, within the vehicle.

the yellow wire or BATT wire goes to the battery,,
the red wire goes to the ignition
the black wire goes to the ground.

to find these on your old car harness use the volt meter, The batt wire will have power with the keys out the ignition (only one to do so) the red will have power only when the ignition is off,,
for the black use a metal part of the car's body scrape off some paint, a part with a bolt will do fine.

the reason its spits the cd out is cause its not hooked up right.

What is the black box on the yellow wire


hi gary, the blck box is an inline noise filter. this filter does not draw the car battery down. the problem you have with your battery going down could be caused by alot of factors. disconnect the harness from your kenwood and then do a load/ current check on your battery. by isolating a circuit in your vehicle you will find which unit/circuit is continuously drawing current from the battery.

KDC-215S battery drain


You could add a switch to control the power going to the head unit. I have seen this done in many different vehicles where the head unit drains the battery, even when supposedly off.

Drained battery


you may have damaged the battery and may need a new 1 and also check the wireing on the dash board as the perminant live which is the yellow wire could be connected to the live which is the red wire on the radio which keeps the radio on even if the keys are out the ignition

No, you have the battery wire hooked up to the ignition switch.
Here is the owners manual with wiring diagram.

Yellow wire must go directly to fused HOT (battery).Not through ignition switch, red goes to switch.
Good Luck
