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.

My work van stereo is now locked and needs a code after I had to change the van Do you know it or who I could ask who might know what to do It is a Kenwood and on the front panel it has KDC-5016


All original car radios have their own unique security codes.

Assuming your radio is the original for this vehicle you simply take your vehicle ownership and registration papers to a Ford workshop they can get the code from the Ford computer network on the spot.

If the code does not work then it means that this radio is not the original for your car as it would have been replaced with them radio model.

If this Kenwood is an after vehicle purchase, you may need to contact Kenwood Car Audio.
Or get Kenwood's contact details through your local car audio dealer.

Bought a second hand car with a kenwood kdc-w7037 system, but do not have the security code in order to operate it - can you assist me? Karen


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 : )
