SOURCE: Kenwood KDC-3028 unlock code

Hi there, there is a standard procedure we use to bypass the code when we have the gear on the test bench for repair. Try this and it should sort out your problem

You need the remote control to do this, if you don't have one, then you may need to go to a KENWOOD agent and get them to clear the code for you, or purchase one for your use.

KENWOOD SECURITY CODE CLEAR procedure 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


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!


A FixYa rating would be fantastic for helping you out with this techo tip.:)

regards
Graeme

SOURCE: Wiring for a kenwood kdc 1020 cd player

if you have the wire connector it's easy.....give the negative conection to the body of the player..find the wire from the battery with has the power supply even when the switch is off..and connect it to the yellow wire.that is for the memory...find the wire which has the power when the switch is on ,and connect it to the red wire from the player....what i mean by switch is the ignition switch... u can easily find the speaker connections...most speaker wires comes as blue,ash,green,white...there are two wires from each colour......

SOURCE: Kenwood KDC-C717 - E-99 error

There is probably a jammed disc or disc holder. It cant eject the cartridge because the unit cant put the disc back into the cartridge to the left.

Took me a about 20 mins gentle persuasion after removing the plastic front (carefully depress the little plastic clips on the edges and (again, gently, lever the front off) and removing the metal case - half a dozen screws each side and remove the bottom. The top stays fixed to the workings. I could then get into the gap between the top case and workings but be careful not to pull the unit from the rubber antishock mountings etc. and remove the problem disc.

I removed the plastic fascia which surrounds the magazine hole too, not sure if it was necessary..!

Again - be careful not to be rough with it, you dont want to snap the plastic clips, etc and also check the horizontal/vertical adjusters are back on in the correct position if they come off.

I just bought a 1994 bmw. I need a code to access my kenwood kdc-x679 excelon player. The previous owner doesn't know the code,


You can enter a 4-digit security code which must be used when the unit is removed from the vehicle, or the constant power source is disconnected from the unit. When constant power is restored to the unit, the security code must be entered before the unit becomes operational.
If the code is lost or forgotten I am afraid the unit has to go to a Kenwood dealer for re-coding.

My Kenwood Excelon KDC-X559 does not power on at all. I know that it is getting power though. You can insert and exit cd's from the unit but that is all it will do. Screen does not show power at all. Is it...


are you sure you have power going to the red wire? the red wire needs to be connected to a switched (ignition) power source. the radio will not work unless both the red and yellow wires are getting power.

I have a kenwood eXcelon KDC-X759 and after i hooked it up it just kept flashing code off, and it will take a cd but no sound and the radio works fine


does the cd seem to be working other than no sound? if so, are you running the audio through an amplifier? if you are using an amplifier, you may be using the antenna remote wire (blue) instead of the amp remote wire (blue/white stripe) to turn the amp on. when using the antenna remote wire it turns off when going to cd mode.

I have a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X890 and somehow the AUX feature for my IPOD on the deck got turned off. How do I turn this back on?


From the stand by mode push the menu button. Scroll to the "Built in AUX" by pushing up or down on the Joggle. Now you can turn the function off or on by pressing to the right or left. Exit menu and Aux should be working.

Check your Ground Wire inside the Truck and Check the Illumination Wire. I Think on Kenwood the Illumination Wire goes with the Power Wire. If they still will not work, You might want to get a Wiring Harness from Schoche.com Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Cd player locked


It has a defective ribbon cable between the face and the motherboard. This is a common repair, but must be done by a repair shop. My shop charges around $60-70 for parts and labor for that repair, to give you a ballpark of what to expect.
