You stated that you entered the code for your car stereo, but still, your Kenwood won't work.

If the code won't work, you need to verify the code, to see if you have the correct stereo code. You actually need to take the stereo out, get the serial number on the side, then contact the car dealer or the manufacturer to verify the code that you have.

This code is also called the "anti-theft" code. It is unique with every car stereo, so that the stereo will be disabled once stolen.

Only the dealer or the manufacturer can give you the correct code, or can verify the code that you have. Contacting them would be the best thing to do.

Thank you and good luck!

You may need to refer to page 21 on the user manual.

http://www.kenwoodusa.com/UserFiles/File/Global/Consumer/Manuals/KDC-MP535U.pdf

It depends on the situation in which you are required to enter the code.

In case the car battery had died then you have to reset the code and chose a new one.

If you had taken the CD player out of the car and are putting it back in, then you have to use the code that you setup previously.

Hope it makes sense.

I suggest check your Kenwood KDCX 591 - User Guide (page 22) for right installation and "register activation code"...

    For other details on how to obtain the 4-digit security code for your car
    stereo please please go to Kenwood Security Codes.


    * You did not enter the security code immediately
    after first start-up.

    Put the equipment back into the original operating conditions by
    pressing RESET key. Then enter the code, which is printed on your Car
    Audio Passport.


    * Security
    Code is not accepted or the code number is incorrect.
    Please enter the four-digit code number, which is
    printed on your Car Audio Passport.
    - If you have entered the correct code number and followed the code
    input procedure from your instruction manual, and the unit does still
    not work. Please check that the serial number starting KE0???? Etc on
    the Car Audio Passport is the same as the serial number on the stereo
    itself. (The serial number is located on the top or bottom panel of the
    stereo, therefore, you will need to remove the stereo from the
    dashboard)
    - If the serial number is the same on the car audio passport as on the
    stereo itself, then unfortunately it would appear that there is a fault.
    The product will need to be inspected by a Car Audio Service Agent. For
    details of your nearest one please go to Kenwood Service Agents.
    - If the serial number on the stereo is different to the one on the Car
    Audio Passport then you have been given the wrong code for your
    particular stereo. To obtain the correct code number, contact your
    Kenwood Dealer.

    * The
    radio no longer operates and just shows “TRANSMIT 1”
    - If the radio loses power, or is reset, then it
    will require the security code to be transmitted from the MASK key. The
    MASK key is a small blue remote control with one button which came with
    the unit when new.
    - Hold this MASK key about 4 – 5 inches from the front of the stereo
    and press and hold the button. You will need to repeat this procedure
    once more when prompted and then the display will show “APPROVED”.


    Good luck.

    The "passport" is a
    label that is given to you when making the purchase, sometimes is in the user guide.

What is EC code in kenwood a.c ?


  1. If your car battery died, your Kenwood stereo will ask you for a code. There are various ways to enter the security code; this depends on the model of your Kenwood stereo.
  2. Look in your manual and see what the security code is for your particular Kenwood stereo. There are common security codes on many Kenwood stereos. Kenwood claims security, but its stereos have many of the same security codes. Here are three common security codes: 1-2-3-4 (a code many Kenwood owners use), 3-0-5-1 (a common security code in Kenwood manuals) and KCAR (works on some Kenwood stereo models). You should have a code within the pages of your manual. Luckily, many Kenwood stereos have the same security codes.
  3. Enter the security code into your Kenwood radio. Method #1: During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the "Volume UP" or "DOWN" key for three seconds until the " ... " display disappears. Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote. Method #2: Press the "Auto" and "Track Up" button on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear. Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote. Method #3: Press and hold the "One" then the "Six" preset keys until the display shows the letter "C." Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
  4. Tips:
  • If you did not have your manual, try the most common codes for Kenwood stereos. If those codes don't work, you can also buy your Kenwood stereo code online. There are places online that will sell you the security code to your Kenwood stereo.
  • Keep your security code and this information in a safe place.

Secruity code for keenwood ddx 512


When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

Code entrance BECAUSE I LOST THE NUMBER


Kenwood I am afraid ask you to activate a code of your choice after purchase. The code you or the original keeper entered is NOT retrievable unless noted somewhere in your manual. This means the unit has to be taken/sent to a dealer for a "bench" re-coding
