If you have the remote, then you can cure with the following instructions. If you DONT HAVE A REMOTE, then you will need to take it to a Kenwood agent and have them do it for you, or just buy one:) Good luck

try this


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!
Please rate me "FixYa" for this solution. Good Luck :)

Password protection on kenwood is very good, you might need to pick up another head unit. Also after inputing the pass code you need to hold the fast forward or skip button to activate the code. I am verry familiar with that head unit and I dont know of any end arounds to bypass the security code. Get ahold of the origional owner and get their passcode or replace the headunit.

I bought a car from a car auction and it had a kenwood dnx9140 but when i turned it on it said enter security code but i dont know it because it was in vehicle that i bought , is there a bypass or default...

Probably not, you can buy security codes online, you just need the serial number off the head unit so you may need to get it out,

have a look here fore some head unit removal guides ;

Security code Lockout

I had a similar issue with a head unit in a newer Volkswagen. There was an unlock code burried in the vehicle's owners's manual.

Since your stero is an aftermarket model, I would bet the unlock code is in the manual for the head unit.

Hey mate

We always used to use the remote to enter the code and the unit would reset. Without the remote, dont think it works, sorry man. Go to a Kenwood installer and they will probably be able to help you will you wait. I would, if you are in Greenbank QLD Australia. :
