These security codes are protected legally, as they serve anti-theft purposes. You will need to contact the manufacturer, a dealer, or an authorized repair/service center to request assistance with obtaining the necessary code. They will also likely ask for some proof of purchase to ensure the legitimacy of the transaction.

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 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
  • Track Up
Your Kenwood should then enter tuner mode.
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.

Low tire pressure light wont go out


The Low Tire Pressure Indicator must be reset using the Radio. This can only be performed if you have the factory radio installed in the vehicle. This vehicle does not come with an active tire pressure management system, and as such, this light must be reset manually.
1.) Turn Radio Off 2.) Hold down disp button for 10 seconds 3.) Setup Menu should display 4.) Scroll through menu to view "Tire Pressure" (use seek buttons) 5.) Select the Tire Pressure option (Press Radio Button 1) 6.) Reset should be displayed on screen (Press disp button) 7.) Tire Pressure Light should reset
