This is very hard to explain on the internet. So to answer your question honestly very friggin carefully. Go to an audio shop and ask them. Talking to them is free. Dont have to buy anything as long as you habe the base the new plug and your ready to get sweaty messing with wires for an hour. Oh. Some people set up the audio with the radio playing music some ppl dont. Its a choice thing but if its raining and stuff dont do it tht day.

SOURCE: UNLOCK SECURITY CODE

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:

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.

i hope this works for you.

I have a 2005 pontiac grand prix. I just bought an after market radio. I don't know the what the wires do in the stock wiring harness. i can't figure out which color wire did what function


Well you can start by checking the wires behind the speakers. There are almost certainly 8 of those. Then there is a power wire which ought to be red and a heavier gauge, plus a ground, which should be black.

Or you can just refer to this wiring diagram :>)

I need the factory stereo color codes for a 2001 grand prix gt with built in equalizer, can you help.


Call a dealer,to see if you really need a code. If you do,then a scanner will need to be used and a diagnostic fee charged.

Code does not work


According to Kenwood's car audio FAQ, the stereo needs to be brought to a Kenwood service center to be decoded. You may run into a problem, however, as Kenwood requires a receipt or other proof of purchase in order to prove you are the rightful owner of the radio.

Good luck, I hope this was helpful, even if it maybe wasn't the answer you would like to hear.
