Security Code for Protect mode

Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!

Not Holding the Memory

Sounds like a wiring problem.

There is a YELLOW wire that should be connected to a constant +12 volt supply when the vehicle is off. This retains the settings.

Check the connections and see if thats the problem.

Please RATE my solution at the bottom.

Best of Luck.
