This is all I could find. Unless you are able to get the code from whom you purchased it from, these are your only options. If I were to have someone lift my stereo,this is a perfect solution for justice on my behalf. Sure, I would not have a stereo, but neither would the thief.

Kenwood car stereos are protected against theft by four digit security codes. If a thief steals a Kenwood car stereo, they will not be able to use the stereo until they enter the secret for digit security code.
Unfortunately, many legitimate owners are also locked out of their Kenwood car stereos due to these security codes. This typically happens to people who buy used cars from people who forget to share the security code. However, it also happens to people who simply forget their security codes after several years.
Common Security Codes Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:

  • KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models.
  • 3051 - This is the security code which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models.
  • 1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners.
Entering your Security Code If the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code.
The procedure to enter your security code differs on various models of Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common procedures:
Try this;
  • During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds until the "..." display disappears.
  • Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Or this
  • Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear.
  • Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
And this: Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset keys until the display shows the letter 'C'.
  • Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Entering Letters on your Kenwood Remote To enter a letter using your Kenwood remote, press a button once for the first letter, twice for the second letter, and three times for the third letter -- then press the Track Up or Next Track key to send the letter.
To send the letter 'A', press the 2 key once and then press the Track Up key. To send the letter 'B', press the 2 key twice and then press the Track up key.
Finally, when you are done entering all of the letters, press and hold the Track Up button for 3 seconds.
The key sequence to enter the security code KCAR is:
  • 5
  • 5
  • Track Up
  • 2
  • 2
  • 2
  • Track Up
  • 2
  • Track Up
  • 7
  • 7
  • Track Up
Your Kenwood should then enter tuner mode.
A Security Code Bug in Some Kenwoods There is a reported bug in the security code handling of some Kenwood stereos. In models with thie bug, the security code is stored incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.
In models with this bug, you have to decrement the third character of the security code by one. If your security code was 1111, you would enter your security code as 1101. If your security code was 9999, you would enter 9989.
Finding the Kenwood Security Code There are backdoor codes for each Kenwood car stereoI bought a car from usa having kenwood DDX7015 and - 2_bing.gif, based upon the model and the serial numbers.
These backdoor codes are closely held secrets. Outfits like Car Audio Accessories UK will sell you the code for your radio for £20.
Sending your RadioBack to Kenwood If all else fails, you can send your stereo back to Kenwood to have the security code reset.

My son bought a car with this kenwood ddx7015 stereo in it with no remote battery died change it n a 4 didget pin came up like I said no remote n don't now how can u please help us


Probably some sort of anti theft mechanism. You might want to contact Kenwood for a work around since you are not the original purchaser. Maybe they will accept a bill of sale for the transfer and assist you in with your dilemma.

I BROUGHT A CAR WITH A KENWOOD DDX7015 THAT ASK FOR A PASSWORD


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.
