    I am the rightful owner of this stereo, its just that I lost the original documents. I disconnected the batery and the stereo asked me for the code again. The warranty is up so I can't ask the manufacturer for help. Im not a thief. Im a very honest and reasonable human being. You should put on your regulations that you don't help with stereo security codes that way many others that are looking for codes don't make the mistakein trusting you guys. Now I have no code and Im out six dollars. In fact the last six dollars in my bank account. I could of had used those six dollars to get my code with another company!!!

    What will the dealer ask for?? As I mentioned before I don't have the original documentation on the stereo.

  • rose_marie_0 Sep 08, 2010

    I disconnected the battery to my car and the stereo reset itself. Its asking me for the original code. I put the code I had but it won't work. The stereo is NOT NEW. I've had it for several years and the warranty is up. Where is the nearest dealer in San Diego and what will they ask for??

  • rose_marie_0 Sep 08, 2010

    I don't know how many times I have to say this....but I DO NOT have the original documents to my stereo. I have years with it and I lost the paperwork..and IM NOT A THIEF. I did not steal this stereo. I changed the battery and now its asking for the code. I put the code I had but its not letting me in. I think I need the original code. Kenwod wont help and other companies want to charge me 85 dollars. Im not going to pay 85 dollars!!! Is there anyone out there that can ACTUALLY help me..not just say "go to kenwood dealer"!!!!

There are tons of websitesw where you can download these security codes for a fee from the internet. But even if you go to the dealership the only information which will be needed will be the model which is DNX-6140 and also the serial number of the device (this can be found at the back panel of the device just beside or above the barcode. You could also call the kenwood hotlines which you can find at their website and this is the information which will be needed.
Hope this solution has been helpful to you?

The only way you will be able to resolve this is to contact Kenwood Support, and explain your problem to them, and why you don't have the security code. Here's Kenwood's site:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

FixYa cannot provide this type of information mainly for security purposes.

We have no method to ensure you are the rightful owner.

Sorry about that

    Depending on the dealer they may ask for proof of ID and photocopy it as a safeguard for themselves.



    Its hard to offer dealer specific advice as they all vary BUT find yourself a local shop who specialise in the IN-CAR entertainment installations (NOT wallmart etc) and give them a shot first.



    Most of them either have the jumper rig if it needs one or know the real back doors to these things.



    Charges may vary wildly from as little as $20 all the way up to "forget it I will buy a new one"

Please I need code.for my stereo Kenwood Dnx 6140


Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

I had to disconnect the battery and didn't get the code from the previous owner Kenwood dx9140


http://www.mademan.com/tech-gear/

Like many stereo systems in our vehicles, an anti theft program is installed to make your device inoperable if the battery is disconnected. Your owners manual usually has a section about how to prevent lock out. Sometimes, the device cannot be recovered..what the program is designed to do.

Check out the link above to see if you can correct it. An owner's manual for your model can be viewed/ download as well. Good luck.

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.

Here is a link to a more detailed site Good Luck
