Question about Kenwood DDX7015 RB DVD Receiver With 6.5" Touch Screen Monitor (Factory Refurbished) Car Video Player
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.

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 stereo, 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.
