Question about Car Audio & Video
I purchased a used kenwood deck at auction. I installed the deck in my car and found that I need an unlock code to get the deck to work. Can you please supply me with an unlock code
thisis what the tag says on the back of the deck.

This was the only information I was bale to find on it.
See if it works for you
IN YOUR RADIO: DISPLAY WILL ASK FOR CODE AND CODE ---- APPEARS ON, SO, HOLD .DISP AND PRESS VOL UP AT LEAST 3 SECONDS. THE "----" WILL DISSAPREAR. NOW TAKE YOUR REMOTE AND DIGIT "KCAR" WITH THE NUMBER PAD.
PRESS "5", "5", >>| (NEXT TRACK) YOU GOT A "K"
PRESS "2", "2","2" >>| (NEXT TRACK) YOU GOT A "C"
PRESS "2", >>| (NEXT TRACK) YOU GOT A "A"
PRESS "7", "7", YOU GOT A "R"
PRESS >>| (NEXT TRACK)
IF DISPLAY SHOWS "APPROVED" YOU'RE DONE ;)

Get the serial number for you unit and call Kenwood in your country. They will have the codes on file. They will also give you instructions on how to put the code in.

TY TY TY..fixed this right on up. Only suggestion I could make is that a diagram of where the aforementioned buttons are. I did mine at night so the small words were hard to see. I just replaced my battery and cleaned off the cables connectors when this problem occurred. TY so much for this.

I had the same problem with my kdc-mpv619. I had bought a new truck that didn't have a remote and the screen says enter code. You do need a remote to fix it, but what they don't tell you is a universal remote will work. I used my direct tv remote and looked up all the codes for kenwood.
The one that worked for me was 30337 (not sure if that would work for you).
1) The way I tested it was go to my stereo and I held down the display button + volume up button. (This should remove the - - - - sign but it will still say CODE).
2) Then you press the 5 button on the remote and if the screen says CODEK then you know the remote works.
(to switch from K to C to A to R press the (>>) button on the screen.
3) Enter the code KCAR (the display will say CODEKCAR)
4) Final Step is hold do the fast forward button (>>) on the screen.
It should work for you after that ;-)
