3. Simplified method of clearing the security code
(K Type only)
1. While the code entry is requested, press and hold the
VOL UP key for 3 seconds while holding the DISP key
pressed. (This should turn "----" off.)
2. Enter "KCAR" from the remote. (Same way as the 01
 Press the 5 key on the remote twice, then press the
Track Up key. (This enters "K".)
 Press the 2 key on the remote 3 times, then press
the Track Up key. (This enters "C".)
 Press the 2 key on the remote once, then press the
Track Up key. (This enters "A".)
 Press the 7 key on the remote twice, then press the
Track Up key. (This enters "R".)
3. The security code is cleared and the unit enters the
ALL OFF mode.
4. If you commit a mistake in the code entry, the unit
enters the code request mode again.

I had the same problem with my kdc-mpv619. I had bought a new truck that didn't have a remote and the screen says enter code. You do need a remote to fix it, but what they don't tell you is a universal remote will work. I used my direct tv remote and looked up all the codes for kenwood.

The one that worked for me was 30337 (not sure if that would work for you).

1) The way I tested it was go to my stereo and I held down the display button + volume up button. (This should remove the - - - - sign but it will still say CODE).

2) Then you press the 5 button on the remote and if the screen says CODEK then you know the remote works.

3) Enter the code KCAR (the display will say CODEKCAR)

4) Final Step is hold do the fast forward button (>>) on the screen.

It should work for you after that ;-)

    Forgot to add this: to switch from K to the next C and then to A and then R you need to press the fast forward button >>

I bought a vehicle that has a kenwood 5120 stereo, i want to hook up the satalite radio and do not know how.

Typically, satellite units get plugged into the antenna input of your radio, then you tune your radio to a specified station to access the satellite tuner

you will need the code to unlock the stereo.
You will probably need to have the radio removed from the dash in order to get the serial number off of it.... but maybe not...
I would call the dealership and ask them what you are required to do to get the code and dirrections on how to enter it...
If you try to enter a random code and it is wrong... your stereo system will lock up and you will have to go thru the ststem reset sequence ( Ignition in ACC for 60+ minutes and enter correct code)

I have a Kenwood KDC-322 car radio. It says enter code. Does anyone know where i can go to get this code?

The only way that i know how to get the stereo to unlock is to remove the power from the stereo for about 10-15 seconds then reconnect power back to stereo this should reset the unit.

How to reset radio cd hyundai HM-5064 using provided password

Hey there, lucky for you that you were able to obtain your passcode, unlike some of us.
To enter the code you hit the number 1 on your stereo w times, the number 2 x times, the number 3 y times, and the number 4 z times, then hit 5 once. Based on your code, wxyz. Ie if your code is 4316, hit 1 on the stereo 4 times then 2 3 times, 3 once, 4 six times, then hit 5.

Acura car stereo lock codes my stereo needs a code is a Acura 3.0CL now it says err-3 can some one help

err-3 means you have entered incorrect anti-theft radio code more that three times.If you do not have radio code you can most of the time find the code card tucked away in the owners manual pouch.(looks like a bussiness card)If you are unable to find card you would have to pull radio from dash and retrive stereo serial number,which is on bottom side of radio.once you have s/n you can take s/n to any acura dealership(has to be a dealer)and they can get radio code for that stereo through Honda Corp.once you have correct radio code you will need to first unplug radio,or disconnect battery to reset radio memory,then type in radio code.again if entered incorrectly 3x ,radio would need to be reset again too clear error codes.good luck!

No display for radio stations

if you know the fuse is ok.... unhook the battery for about ten minutes and hook it back up... if it is an anti-theft type radio... make sure you know the code first and how to enter it

Stereo Code required for Mazda 323 Protege SP 2002

The dealer should be able to get your code from the dealers database. I'm pretty sure they hold the car chassis # and radio code from the original sale on the DB. This may cost you cash.

Otherwise, looks like you'll have to go to a Mazda dealer and have a "hard reset" performed on the radio. This will cost you cash!(unless you know someone)



P.S. Most dealers in Europe don't charge.
