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
* Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key

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

Sorry, but that would be very hard to solve as there are all sorts of possibilities. There are three options to solving this;
You could (number 1) start from 0001 and go all the way to 9999 but this will take a very long time (from past experience)!
Either continue to guess number codes that could be the date of your birth (e.g. 1978), a continuos number (e.g. 3333) etc. etc.
OR you go to your phone operater and get them to reload everything on your phone to normal, but this will cost a lot of money and take some time.

I have a kenwood kdc-x689. The screen went dim before it stopped working. The fuse on the back of the unit is still good. Please help me! Thanks!


There are more fuses which are to be checked other than the one at the back , The power supply fuse should be within the fuse box of the car , Do check them and you'll be fixed for sure , Just find the fuse box and how to replace one using your owners manual
thank you

Need to reset the code on my Kenwood deck.


you should try the defaults 0000,0123,1234. in most cases unless you or the original owner put in the security code. Worse case it will just keep turning off till you get it right.

Need the code


Hi, If this Kenwood has a mode button, ie a button that will decide which source to play like radio,cd,tape or aux try pressing the main power on button and the mode button at the same time for 5 seconds it may then display the word code and allow you to put the code in if you know it, if you dont, you will need to have its memory erased by a kenwood dealer.
