Pull the head unit and get the serial number.
Call Kenwood customer service, you may have to enter a code or press the buttons in a certain order,
if not. You might have to send it in, if the code is hidden in the PROM. If they ask for a receipt... Tell them it was a gift : )

Need security codes for kenwood KDC 4020


Common Kenwood Security Codes
Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:

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.
Entering Your Kenwood Security Code
If 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 and hold the "Auto" button and "Track up" (next track button on the right) 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.
Entering Letters on 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.

i hope this works for you.

Hi I have just bought a seconhand car with a KDC 5016 how can i get the code reset, regards tony


If you have the remote you can clear it yourself with this method or if you do not have the remote you need to take it to an authorized Kenwood repair center and they can do it for a small fee. But you must have the remote.
This method below is right out of the service manual for your model.
I would appreciate a good rating if this helps you. Thanks and let me know if you need any further help with it.

How to clear the simple security code (K type only)
1. While the code is requested, press and hold the DISP
key and press and hold the VOL Up key for 3 seconds.
("........."disappears.)
2. Enter “KCAR” from the remote control unit. (Same
operation as the '98 model)
• Press numeric key 5 twice then press the Track Up
key. (This enters "K".)
• Press numeric key 2 three times then press the Track
Up key. (This enters "A".)
• Press numeric key 2 once then press the Track Up
key. (This enters "A".)
• Press numeric key 7 twice then press the Track Up
key. (This enters "A".)
3. The security is canceled and the unit enters the
TUNER mode.
