    Hi, my problem is similar. I have the KDC 1016 unit wired up and operational, however, each time I turn the ignition off I lose all the settings on the unit (Radio stations, time, etc).



    I have the red and yellow wires from the unit wired to the power (red wire) from the ignition, is that correct?



    Cheers.

Need to get the security code for Kenwood KDC-608OR


ok I just found this info online and they say it came from the service manual for that stereo so I hope it helps:

You will need a Kenwood RC-410 remote control. This remote works on KDC-519, KDC-X859, KDC-319, KDC-4019, KDC-MP919, KDC-X759, KDC-419, KDC-X459, KDC-MPV619, KDC-MPV7019, KDC-2022, KDC-2022V, KRC-435, KRC-535 and KDC-X959

To reset the code do the following:

1) Turn on the car.
2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears.
3) Press >>' and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around. Press the Eject button and then try it again.)
4) The screen will still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
5) Press the 2 key on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
6) Press the 2 key on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
7) Press the 7 key on the remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.
8) The radio goes into All Off mode and you are set! Hit the SRC button on the faceplate to select CD, Radio, etc.

Where is the reset button on my kenwood kdc-c719 cd changer


there is no reset button, the reset is to disconnect power to the unit and see if it starts up ok, you do say problem but if it is loading problem then resetting it will not fix it.

Kewood kdc-5018 cd player forgot the code please


No one can help except the manufacturer, I am amazed as to how many people "lost the code". You need to send it to Kenwood to ghet it unlocked or get ahold of the real owner before you to get the code. Every unit has a different code as they are set BY THE USER!

Kenwood kdc-601fm


Hi the kenwood changers suffer from jamming up, and dry joints on the socket. try wiggleing the large socket/cable on the cd changer. otherwise you will need to take it for repair. if you would like to have it repaired, please see www.carradiospares.co.uk
