Hi TANJIASTREAT

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

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.

I had some work done on my car now the stereo is telling me to enter a security code


The repairers have disconnected the battery and now the stereo needs to have the correct code entered to reset it.

There are lots of "programs" out there that "might" be able to unlock your stereo but they charge almost the same as any TV repair shop. Most TV repair shops will reset your code for 25-35 pounds. Yes it is little more than downloadable programs that probably will not work and could be riddled with malware.
Its a very fast, very easy job for most electrical repair shops.

Code


Do you have the unlock code and need a way to input them them.

Input the code to your Sony stereo using the remote control handset
Press [+] on your stereo until you reach the first digit required then press [SEEK] to enter
Press [+] on your car radio until you reach the second digit required then press [SEEK] to enter
Press [+] until you reach the third digit required then press [SEEK] to enter
Press [+] on your stereo until you reach the fourth digit required then press [SEEK] to enter
The clock will be displayed once finished. Press the [SOURCE] key to switch the car radio on.


You can get the radio codes from the site

http://www.radio-code.com/

But you will have to pay for it.

Or worst case start at 0000-9999.
Hope this helps.

My system is blocked on secuirity code enter when i switch it on and i don't have the code. My car stereo is a Kenwood KDC-MP638U. happened when i removed it from one car to another car. have tried using...


Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:

  • KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models.
  • 3051 - This is the security code which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models.
  • 1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners.
A Security Code Bug in Some Kenwoods

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.

I have a radio in a truck i bought and the battery died. the guy gave me a code and i cant get it to take in the radio any help would be appreciated


Kenwood car stereos are protected against theft by four digit security codes. If a thief steals a Kenwood car stereo, they will not be able to use the stereo until they enter the secret for digit security code.
Unfortunately, many legitimate owners are also locked out of their Kenwood car stereos due to these security codes. This typically happens to people who buy used cars from people who forget to share the security code. However, it also happens to people who simply forget their security codes after several years.


  • KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models.
  • 3051 - This is the security code which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models.
  • 1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners.
  • f the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code. The procedure to enter your security code differs on various models of Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common 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 until the "..." display disappears.
  • Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 2
  • Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear.
  • Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 3: Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
  • Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset keys until the display shows the letter 'C'.
  • Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.

To enter a letter using your Kenwood remote, press a button once for the first letter, twice for the second letter, and three times for the third letter -- then press the Track Up or Next Track key to send the letter.
To send the letter 'A', press the 2 key once and then press the Track Up key. To send the letter 'B', press the 2 key twice and then press the Track up key.
Finally, when you are done entering all of the letters, press and hold the Track Up button for 3 seconds.
The key sequence to enter the security code KCAR is:
  • 5
  • 5
  • Track Up
  • 2
  • 2
  • 2
  • Track Up
  • 2
  • Track Up
  • 7
  • 7

Every time I take the key out the ignition it turns off but when I turn the car on again I have to enter the code why is this??


Hello, It sounds as if when the unit was installed the installer installed the power constant lead to the ignition. This will make the stereo think that it has been removed from the car and puts it into security mode causing you to have to enter the code to make it work. If you don't know how to do this repair any car audio shop can fix this cheaply. If you know about car audio wiring verify that the constant battery wire is going to the 12+ constant lead in the fuse box and the ignition lead from the radio is going to the switched ACC lead in the fuse box. Also check the fuse behind the radio and make sure it is not loose or blown. Voila it should be fixed. If not check the manual that came with the radio and make sure their is not a setting that requires you to enter a code each time you turn it on, not many stereos have this feature but yours may. If you don't have the manual Google it and you can download it for free.

Need master reset code for KDC-X459


YOU MUST HAVE THE REMOTE to do the procedure. There is no other way to clear the code. I work at an authorized Kenwood service center and I know this for a fact. If you do not have a remote, you will need to either buy one or borrow one from a friend, or take the radio to an authorized Kenwood service center and they can do it for you, but most charge a small fee for doing it. My shop charges $25 to clear a code, all shops have their own rates so a shop near you may be different. Most all Kenwood remotes made for car radios will work, it doesn't need to be a remote from the same model, just a Kenwood remote for a car stereo.

Here is the procedure

1. While the code entry is requested, press and hold the
VOL UP key on the faceplate for 3 seconds while holding the DISP key
pressed on the faceplate. (This should turn "----" off.)
2. Enter "KCAR" from the remote. (Same way as the 01
model)
• Press the 5 key on the remote twice, then press the
Track Up key. (This enters "K".)
• Press the 2 key on the remote 3 times, then press
the Track Up key. (This enters "C".)
• Press the 2 key on the remote once, then press the
Track Up key. (This enters "A".)
• Press the 7 key on the remote twice, then press the
Track Up key. (This enters "R".)
3. The security code is cleared and the unit enters the
ALL OFF mode.
4. If you commit a mistake in the code entry, the unit
enters the code request mode again.

It would be appreciated if you would rate this solution, since this is the only way to clear the code, it is deserving of a FixYa! rating. If you need any further help feel free to post any questions you have right here on this thread and I will answer them as soon as possible.

Thanks,
Dave

Kenwood kdc-322 car cd stereo


use the preset buttons to enter the code.
first press the number 1 button until the correct first number of your code appears
then press the number 2 button until the second number of your code appears
then the 3 button for the 3rd number of your code
then the 4 button for the last number of your code

I am writing this from memory so the next step you may need to try a couple of things, my memory is failing me as I get older.

After the code is entered you will probably need to press the track forward button or the src button. it should now be ready to use.

If that does not work, reply back with a post and I will look it up in the service manual at work tomorrow, but I am pretty sure this will work.

Please give me a good rating if this has been helpful
