Hi John,
This sure does happen a lot.
Get serial # Call Kenwwod Customer service,
They will either have you send it in to reprogram the PROM
Or ask you for proof of purchase to give you the code.

If you have no receipt, and you or someone else didn't acquire it late at night in a inappropriate way, tell them it was a gift, that's not immoral, I buy myself gifts all the time : )
Regards, Paul

I have lost the security code for my kenwood cd receiver. The model is KDC-MP4033S. Serial number is KE1202U0900623.


Hi,

Unfortunately Kenwood Radios can only be decoded on a bench and must be connected directly to specialist software. They cannot be decoded via serial alone. There is however a special procedure that can be used to bypass the security on these units using a master code 5227 (KCAR) which I will outline below.

Ulock code kdc-mp5028


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 (so that “…” disappears).
Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 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.

Type 3
Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations). "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

Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 3

Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio

stations). "C" should display.
Then using your remote, enter your code.

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.

Unlock code for kenwood ddx7019 w/ no remote


There is no way to clear the security code without the remote. The remote must be used, no way around it.

You can take your radio to an authorized Kenwood service center and they can clear the code for you at a pretty reasonable price. My shop charges $25. Most should be about the same.
