There are a few different ways to unlock according to model. I have posted 3 solutions.
1
During the code request mode, while holding the display key , press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds (so that “…” disappears).
Then using your remote enter your code.

2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".

Then using your remote enter your code.

3
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key. "C" should display.
Then using your remote, enter your code.


Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is 5227 (KCAR)

* Press numeric key “5” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key

This should unlock your radio.
Have a great day!

Had an electrical issue with the used ford that I purchased recently from a used car lot, and it locked up the stereo/radio. It is a Kenwood 5QWx4 MP3 WMA, also has KDC-MP235. I can get it to ask me for...


I would suggest looking in the phone book under car audio. Look for a Kenwood dealer. This is the only place that you can get the codes from. These codes are an anti-theft device put in the stereos. They will have to have the Serial number on the stereo. But I have searched all over the internet and paid hundreds of dollars on sites that promise the codes. And I have had no luck finding one that is legitimate.

I have a Kenwood KDC-322 car radio. It says enter code. Does anyone know where i can go to get this code?


The only way that i know how to get the stereo to unlock is to remove the power from the stereo for about 10-15 seconds then reconnect power back to stereo this should reset the unit.

Need a security code for kenwood car stereo model number KDC-w6541u


You'll have to contact Kenwood, or the preacvious owner of the radio. Kenwood will want your licence no., name, address, registration number, and VIN no.

My car stereo has the word protect on and does nothing else. Do you have a code to unlock it? The model is kdc mp336ax. Thanks


thats either from a bad wire, or the theft system is turned on, if the theft system is on then yes there is a code to unlock it but you'll have to get it from the dealer, if its a bad wire then there is no code, check the ground and power wire thats the best place to start...

I have a Kenwood kdc mp828. I disconnected my battery cable and now can not remember my security code. I need to reset the unit so I can again listen to my stereo.


I read a blog on your site about Kenwood stereo's. I used that information to unlock my stereo security code. Albiet, I did have to figure out a bit of the code needed myself. I am again able to listen to music on my stereo.
