This 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.:)

    aaawww man, that sux... You could purchase another remote from the dealer, but I think if you spoke nicely to a service guy, or even sales, at a Kenwood dealer, that they may just sort out the problem for free.. I know I would have for you ;)

    Have you tried to take the remote apart. If it is a clip together type, use a guitar pick to open it. Just slip into the casings and run it around the edge, the device will peel apart. Then check it for dry solder joints.Particularly about the transmitting LED. It may need resoldering. Also check the battery contacts for corrosion, other than that, its a throwaway generally. Good luck

How do i get the video to work on my kenwood kvt 817


yes there is a safety feature but it is very easy to overide with a toggle switch you can purchase from just about any where. if you arent to tech savy you could take it to a "hole in wall" stereo shop and they can do it, but they will charge. if not look up the manual for your reciever on kenwoods website and it will tell you how and what those other wires are for.

Passcode


You might have bought a stolen one. I was installing a sub in my car and unplugged mine and it required a pass code, which i forgot for a while, but luckily remembered. I called about getting it reset and they said I had to bring it in to a official Kenwood ceter in order to get it reset. I would just suggest to call Kenwood. Also, i'm currently looking for a new one because mine was stolen again, so hopefully the person who stole it is having a problem installing it in there car. good luck.
