You must have the remote to clear the security code. If you do not have a remote, this will not work and there is no other way to clear the code. If you do not have a remote you must either buy one or borrow one from a freind who has a kenwood radio. Most all of the remotes for the last 5 to 8 years will work. If you can not get a remote, you can take the radio's to a authorized Kenwood service center and they can clear the code for a reasonable cost. My shop charges $25, that should be about what other shops charge.

This first one is for the KDC-MP528

1. When you are requested to enter the security code, while
pressing down on [AUTO] key, use a long-press on >>I key
for 3 seconds. (----disappears.)
2. Using the remote controller, input “KCAR.”
Press remote controller [5] key 2 times and then press >>I
key. (Input for “K.”)
Press remote controller [2] key 3 times and then press >>I
key. (Input for “C.”)
Press remote controller [2] key once and then press >>I
key. (Input for “A.”)
Press remote controller [7] key 2 times and then press >>I
key. (Input for “R.”)
3. The security is released and the unit enters the STANDBY
sourcing mode.
4. If a wrong code is input, the unit goes into the Code Request
mode.

Now this is for the KDC-MP828

1. While “– – – –” is being displayed, press [>>I ] key for at
least 3 seconds while pressing [AUTO] key.
This makes “– – – –” display disappear.
2. Using the remote controller, input “KCAR”.
Press remote controller [5] key 2 times (Input for “K”) and
then press [>>I ] key.
Press remote controller [2] key 3 times (Input for “C”) and
then press [>>I ] key.
Press remote controller [2] key once (Input for “A”) and then
press [>>I ] key.
Press remote controller [7] key 2 times (Input for “R”) and
then press [>>I ] key.
3. The security is released and the unit enters the STANDBY
mode.
4. If a wrong code is input, the unit goes into the Code Request
mode.

A rating of "FixYa!" would be appreciated for this free information.

Thanks,

Dave

SOURCE: can not find the code for my kenwood kdc-516s

Same problem, different rig. Bought a bronco with a Kenwood KDC 516s in it, Guy had put a new optima battery in it CODE_ _ _ _  appeared and he has no clue what the "code" is. I have no "remote" and no desire to buy a "remote" for a #$%@ car stereo. Is there any way for me to re-set the code w/out the expense of a remote or a fee from a tech?? the musically challenged, Brew
P.S. The owners manual under the "accessory" section  mentions the KDC x617/v-6017 remotes but fails to mention a remote for the 516s??

SOURCE: lost the Code for Kenwood Car-radio KDC-W6527

Try 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 own a 2006 holden viva equip station wagon .I am trying to program stereo to reboot after losing battery power .Apparently I need a computer code number ???Can you help?


Hi Mark there isn't a lot any one can do. The only option you really have are; check through all the paper work you have on the car all cards and hand book, all repair sheets if Holden invoices sometimes radio codes are written in. Purchase invoice if bought from a dealer sometimes have the code recorded. If no luck there possibly on the back of the radio (radio removed). Again if not there write down or take a photo of all information on all labels on the radio including bar codes. Now the two options left go to the dealer with the infomation you have written down pay a fee and they will get the radio code or fit a new radio purchased elsewhere. A third option just thought of is a radio fitting specialist but to be honest i have not come accross one that can reprogram a radio code.Good luck

I change the battery on my 1999 honda odyssey now the radio ask for a code I call Honda dealer they said to find the code inside sticker inside the glove compartment there is nothing there I'm the 3rd...


The dealer is correct:

But here's a webiste that will help you out. http://www.radio-code.com/Honda-Pay-Page-radio-code-NEW-proced.htm they tell how to remove the radio and wher to find the codes.

Good Luck and tell the kids to hum quietly to themselves until the radio is fixed :)

ALSO, WRITE THE CODE DOWN so if you need to change the battery again, you'll have it. AND for future reference, they make a simple device that you plug into your cigarette lighter socket that has a 9 volt battery attached so when you change the battery, your radio / computer will retain the codes.

How do i make the radio in my 1993 VW cabriolet work the guy i bought it from said you have to input a code but he couldnt remember what steps to take. i do have the code he wrote that down. what do i do


You can try this. It's for a Passat but it's most likely the same for all models that year.
1. Turn the radio on. "SAFe" should appear on the display.
2. Push the AM/FM and SCAN buttons. Hold them until the display changes to 1000, then release. If the buttons are held too long or accidently pushed again this will be interpreted as entry of an incorrct code.
3. Enter the code usung the first four station programing buttos. The code will appear on the display.
4. Push the AM/FM and SCAN buttons and hold until the display changes to SAFe. Release the buttons.
After 2 incorrect tries the radio will lock up and refuse any more tries. Leave the radio on for at least 1 hour and then you can try again. Same deal, 2 tries and then lock up. The radio does not lock up permanently.
This needs to be done any time you disconnect power so write it down somewhere and keep it. Any time you disconnect the battery or disrupt power to the radio, blow a fuse or remove the fuse it will have to be done.
Hope this helps.

Renault megane 1998, lost radio code


The code for my 2002 Megane (MK51 reg) is 5817. You use the little wheel on the steering on the right hand side of steering wheel, the one where you can change channels on your radio. This will set the numbers ie 1 2 3 4 put you first No in and press the button underneath the little wheel it will then flash onto the second No. Do the same until you get to the fourth and then hold the button in until the radio comes on. Hope this helps
