Question about Kenwood KDC-MP5028 CD Player
My car was serviced at a repair shop and returned with the "Enter Code" message. The stereo came with the '03 van. I have no code.
I have written a Tip on how to overcome this problem. Checkout here
You do need the remote control to reset the code... If you dont have it, then you may have to go to a Kenwood Authorised service center. They will be able to do it for you. A FixYa rating would be tops for sorting this one out for you :) Cheers

Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:
There is a reported bug in the security code handling of some Kenwood stereos. In models with thie bug, the security code is stored incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.
In models with this bug, you have to decrement the third character of the security code by one. If your security code was 1111, you would enter your security code as 1101. If your security code was 9999, you would enter 9989.
Finding the Kenwood Security Code
There are backdoor codes for each Kenwood car stereo, based upon the model and the serial numbers.
These backdoor codes are closely held secrets. Outfits like Car Audio Accessories UK will sell you the code for your radio for £20.
Sending your RadioBack to Kenwood
If all else fails, you can send your stereo back to Kenwood to have the security code reset.
