Re: Security code

If you call up KENWOOD and talk to their service department they will give you an address to ship it to and they will unlock it and send it back to you for a small fee. Whoever installed the radio put the security feature on. (Sometimes they put generic codes in such as: 0000, 1111, 1234, 0123 etc...)

I just bought a 1994 bmw. I need a code to access my kenwood kdc-x679 excelon player. The previous owner doesn't know the code,

You can enter a 4-digit security code which must be used when the unit is removed from the vehicle, or the constant power source is disconnected from the unit. When constant power is restored to the unit, the security code must be entered before the unit becomes operational.
If the code is lost or forgotten I am afraid the unit has to go to a Kenwood dealer for re-coding.

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.

Keeps asking for code will not come on

You must have bought it used. If it is asking for a code, that means the previous owner set a security code on the radio. Every time it is unhooked from power, then reconected it will ask for a code. If you can not get the code from the previous owner, you may get lucky, and they will give the the master overide code. It is hard to get then to do this over the phone, because it helps theives. Hope this helps.

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.

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??
