This is right out of the service manual for the KDC-X879

You must use the remote to do this procedure, if you do not have the remote you can take the radio to an authorized Kenwood service center and they can do it for a reasonable price.

4. Simple way to clear the security code (K type only)
1. During code request mode, press the Track UP key for at
least 3 seconds while holding down the AUTO key. (– – – –
will disappear)
2. Enter, “KCAR” with the remote controller as described below.
• Press the remote controller 5 key twice, and press the Track
Up key. (Enters a “K” )
• Press the remote controller 2 key three times, and press
the Track Up key. (Enters a “C” )
• Press the remote controller 2 key once, and press the Track
Up key. (Enters an “A” )
• Press the remote controller 7 key twice, and press the Track
Up key. (Enters an “R” )
3. Security function is canceled and unit sets to All-Off mode.
4. Code request mode appears if a mistake was made in entering
the numbers.

How to unlock my 2002 car sterio


Hello! You will need to contact a GM dealership for the override code, but you will also need to provide them with some info from the radio. Follow these steps:
1) Press & hold the 2 & 3 buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds; a 2 or 3 digit code will appear, write this # down,
2) Press & hold the AM/FM button for about 10 seconds: another code will appear, write this # down as well.

You may also need to provide your VIN to the dealership as well.

Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!
