Question about Kenwood KDC-319 CD Player

4 Answers

Kenwood KDC-319 code needed

We just got a car in on trade and after having it detailed (battery was disconnected during the detail) the radio now is asking for a code. It has a Kenwood KDC-319 radio. Any help out there for this?? We don't have a remote for this radio I have a remote, but it doesn't seem to be working. I took this stereo out of my wife's 1994 Dodge intrepid and now have it in my 1995 Toyota Tercel. I turned it on and it says enter code. I don't have a code and the remote does not seem to be working. How do get my stereo to work.

Hey there

unfortunately, you will really need the remote for getting the code.

if you do have the code. just follow this steps.


You need a kenwood remote that has a phone style keypad(there are many of them they have numbers and letters like a phone pad)

Step2. Turn your radio on.... it will say ENTER CODE---- and look like this CODE----

Step3. Press and hold the DISP button and the volume up button at the same time for about 4 to 5 seconds, if you did this right you will be confirmed with a beep and the screen will change from CODE---- to CODE.

Step4. Your halfway there once you get to this far... now all you have to do is enter KCAR with the remote like your texting on a cellphone

Step5. To do this press the number 5 button, you will notice that a J will appear on the screen so just press it again and aK will appear to enter the K press the track forward button >>, then press the 2 for C and so on and so on til you spell KCAR...

The 6th and final step... press the track forward button once more to enter the code and there you have it.


try changing the battery for the remote. maybe it will work.
thanks for using fixya

    5
    5
    Track Up
    2
    2
    2
    Track Up

    Try this first:

    "ENWOOD SECURITY CODE CLEAR procedure


    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

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 Mercedes service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

I changed the belt on the car now radio want come on at all 1995 bmw 525i


Is it possible that you disconnected your battery during the process of replacing the belt? If so maybe that could be a reason that is why your radio does not work. Is it asking you for a code? Sometimes cars will ask you for a code if you disconnect them from power. Let me know, Jeff from fixya

Hi can i ask for the audio code for kia carnival 2000 - just disconnected to battery and then the audio is asking for a code... Pls help me. Thanks


Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code. You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership. Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

Radio Code for unlock 1999 honda CRV car


HONDA codes are not readily available from anywhere on the Internet apart from here

https://radio-navicode.honda.com 

You will have to quote the car`s VIN number + other details.

If they cannot provide your code then you will have to try your HONDA Main Dealer or a Decode Service who will plug it into a laptop and electronically read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)
