Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

My 300 ZX has been sitting for over a year. Everything was dead until I got it fixed. Now, I cannot find the code (or disk or remote) for my Kenwood 5025 to get it playing. All it wil do when I turn it on is ask for the access code. I've taken it to Car Toys and they cannot seem find an answer for me. Thanks

    Thanks for trying to help. Looks like the remote is the key player here so my player is just a boat anchor.

Well, without the remote you won't be able to type in the code. I can provide you the unlocking procedure and the master code but still the remote is required. The procedure is:


These codes are applicable for all Kenwood radios that do not have DVD or DVD screens located on unit.

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 on the remote
* Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key on the remote
* Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key on the remote
* Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key on the remote

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

Why does 1991 nissan 300 zx die when the motor warms up?

Is there a MIL on, what is the code if so. May very well be a coolant temp sensor or connector corroded.

88 Chevy C3500 7.4L truck has been sitting for 2 years~connected and jumped battery and put gas~drove down the road fine until turned on the lights~truck acted like it wanted to turn off~boyfriend thinks...

I suspect that the battery is dead and when you turned on the lights there is insufficient current from the alternator to run everything so the ignition shut down. Have a load test done on the battery and check for bad cells as a battery sitting unused for 2 years will be sulphated up on the plates.. Fit new battery and reset the CPU with a code reader.

Just bought a 2005 ZX-10R and it came with 1 key that promptly got misplaced. Not 1990, 2005. The choices were slim so I had to pick 1990.

Yah I saw the year model selected problem myself you did the right thing call locksmiths till one says they'll come by to fix it better ask their prices first I've been told $300 but haven't had to pay it fixed many bikes for this but not your model. When you finally get the new key engrave the number somewher on the bike so you can find it again if needed. I have done this to my bike as I know that the dealer and manufacturer both don't keep the code it's yours now ones that have a new dealer lein on them the repo man may be told the number but they mostly just tow them.

The problem is being caused by a corrupt file in the internal memory. This requires a service repair to find and remove the file. Try the Jungle Ghost at They do repairs.

My remote is driving me CRAZY!!!!!!!

1) Manually turn on the device to be controlled.
2) Press and hold CODE SEARCH button until the red indicator stays on, then release the CODE SEARCH button.
3) Press and quickly release the desired mode button (TV, VCR etc.) . The red indicator blinks off once.
4) Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly ( up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks off with each button press. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the CHANNEL DOWN button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing CHANNEL UP changes direction forward again.
5)Press and release MUTE to install the code.

Hope it helps~
