Can not find the code for my kenwood kdc-516s

I bought an 89 Chevy S10 and it had the Kenwood kdc-516s in it as a after market setup. It worked fine until I had to replace the battery. It now asks for the code and I don't know where to find it.

Same problem, different rig. Bought a bronco with a Kenwood KDC 516s in it, Guy had put a new optima battery in it CODE_ _ _ _  appeared and he has no clue what the "code" is. I have no "remote" and no desire to buy a "remote" for a #$%@ car stereo. Is there any way for me to re-set the code w/out the expense of a remote or a fee from a tech?? the musically challenged, Brew
P.S. The owners manual under the "accessory" section  mentions the KDC x617/v-6017 remotes but fails to mention a remote for the 516s??

    if code function is set you have to get the code number from the person who set it that is the only way and you can never turn off the code feature either

Unfortunately Kenwood codes are only available from the Main Dealer or by using a Radio Decoding Service who will connect a laptop to read the working code inside your radio`s memory chip (EEPROM)

You need to flip the front panel down first and there will be an eject button on the inside of the panel. If this is not working try pressing the tiny reset button which is left of the ATT button.

No remote or code


Hi macalist

You do need a remote to sort your problem out. If you dont have one, a Kenwood installer may be able to do this for free for you. Just go round the back and talk to one of the install techs. They are often happy to help out. I would have :)
