I bought a used car with the KW7017 DVD player. I pushed the reset button thinking it would reset to factory default, but it's asking for a 4 digit password that I can't get. Trying to locate original owner to get password, but is there a way to clear the code my myself.
Thanks in advance,

Re: Kenwood DDX 7017 bypass code
During code request mode:
Point the remote control to the screen and input this numbers (from the remote control) as faster as you can 55222277
You will not see any change on the screen until you enter the last number.
This will clear the code
If you make a mistake,just reset the unit and start from the top.

● How to clear the Security Code
In adjusting K/R destination units, if the unit starts up with
Security ON, the Security Code can be cleared in the following
manner. (Other than in Test Mode)
1) In the e Security ON condition, after resetting or turning
power ON after backup OFF, then the session starts with
Security Code Input screen.
2) With the attached remote control in the Audio SW selected
condition, input the code with the following procedure.
Procedure 1: “K” input (Press Tenkey  2 times)
Procedure 2: “C” input (Press Tenkey  3 times)
Procedure 3: “A” input (Press Tenkey  once)
Procedure 4: “Q” input (Press Tenkey  2 times)
Note: If a remote controller other than the attached is
used, Pressing Tenkey  twice will cause “R” to be input.
If a mistake is made during Procedure 1~4 above, input
other remote controller Key. Then, start inputting again
from Procedure 1.
3) Security Code is complete when the input screen for the
Security Code is cleared.
