You are pretty much screwed; Kenwood will not release any information to help you unlock the unit period. They don't know if you stole it or even what the code is. The only way to get the problem fixed is to send the unit to Kenwood along with a legit sales receipt and they will unlock it for you. That's the only way it will happen, it's what I had to do and I'm a dealer.

I just purchased a used motorhome that has a Kenwood KDC-MPV7019/MPV619 receiver. The previous owner did not provide the security code for the unit. How can I reset the code?

You will have to contact the previous owner to get the code otherwise you will have to buy a new stereo. There is a possibilty of being able to contact kenwood they might be able to reset it but it costs about 60 dollars to do so. I'm sorry..

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.

Forgot the code for kdc-mpv619, can you help reset the code?

This is the method for a very similar model and should work with yours. You must have the remote to do it, It will not work without the remote.

If this works for you I would really appreciate a "FixYa", if it does not work let me know and I will look up your model on Kenwoods service site tomorrow

The first step is not easy to understand. Press the display key first and keep it pressed in while you press the track up key at the same time and hold them both for 3 or more seconds. If that does not work, press the track up key first and then the display key

Simplified method of clearing the security
code (K, E Type only)
1. While the code entry is requested, press and hold the
TRACK UP key for 3 seconds while holding the DISP key
pressed. (This should turn "----" off.)
2. Enter “KCAR “from the remote.
• Press the 5 key on the remote twice, and then press the
Track Up key. (This enters "K".)
• Press the 2 key on the remote 3 times, and then press
the Track Up key. (This enters "C".)
• Press the 2 key on the remote once, and then press the
Track Up key. (This enters "A".)
• Press the 7 key on the remote twice, and 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.
