My battery died in when I installed a new battery my radio locked its a kenwood kvt-514 what do i do to reset it


When the battery connection is interuppted the radio will reset and so will require the codes to be entered to switch on. you need to check with the dealership to check on the database for the codes , if not please check the link below:

Hi I need some help on my DVD player please. my battery died and now my Sony xav-60 is asking for a password wich sucks because the car I bought recently came with it. I'm desperate so can u guys help.......


this unit has security code use to input by the owner of the unit. you need to re-input this code every time you change battery or disconnect the DVD unit power. in case If you lost or forgot your code; You only might have to call SONY and send the DVD unit to SONY service center to clear the prevuos code for you ....

I changed the battery on my truck and the stereo went into enter password and dont know what it is and now it is locked


Assuming you have tried standard default codes 0000, 1111, 1234...
Clarion models keep the security code in non-magnetic memory inside the unit.
The only way to reset is to return it to clarion to have it cracked and reset using their proprietay software, and/or replace the flash memory chip.

Clarion authorized service centers cannot even do it (like Kenwood can)

If it says CODE, you can attempt to enter a code. If it says LOCK - after 7 attempts, you must wait 15 minutes.


Hope this helps

Regards

Dan

I dont know what color wires are for what, i had my head unit stolen and now im not sure what wires go to the new kenwood head unit


The three main wires you need to worry about are the
Ground (Black) Battery + (Red) Constant + (Orange)
As far as the speaker wires goes you are going to have to trial and error them. They are usually color coded so for instance one wire is purple with a white stripe there would be a purple wire with a black stripe that would correspond with it. Every vehicle is different in how it is wired. I know installing a stereo looks intimidating but just split up the wires and you will see it is quite simple. Do a professional job and use crimp connectors, going the electrical tape route is never worth the time it saves.

I bought a car from a car auction and it had a kenwood dnx9140 but when i turned it on it said enter security code but i dont know it because it was in vehicle that i bought , is there a bypass or default...


Probably not, you can buy security codes online, you just need the serial number off the head unit so you may need to get it out,

have a look here fore some head unit removal guides ;

My work van stereo is now locked and needs a code after I had to change the van Do you know it or who I could ask who might know what to do It is a Kenwood and on the front panel it has KDC-5016


All original car radios have their own unique security codes.

Assuming your radio is the original for this vehicle you simply take your vehicle ownership and registration papers to a Ford workshop they can get the code from the Ford computer network on the spot.

If the code does not work then it means that this radio is not the original for your car as it would have been replaced with them radio model.

If this Kenwood is an after vehicle purchase, you may need to contact Kenwood Car Audio.
Or get Kenwood's contact details through your local car audio dealer.

Changed the battery on my car and i need a code to use it again


A code to use what? The radio? what brand is it? If it's a Kenwood, there's a bit of hope. If it's a factory unit (i.e, GM, Volvo, Volkswagen, etcc), you have to take it to a dealership, Need more info.
