    I bought the player a year ago at a yard sale. I want to install it in my 96 escort. I have everything in the box but a code to unlock it. There must be a generic code for it. If you dont have a code could you refund my account Please.
    Thank you

    KENWOOD SECURITY CODE CLEAR procedure

    These codes are applicable for all Kenwood radios that do not have DVD or DVD screens located on unit.


    Your radio will require one of the following 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

    (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 on the remote
    * Press numeric key “2” ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key on the remote
    * Press numeric key “2” ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key on the remote
    * Press numeric key “7” ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key on the remote

    The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!

Try 3051, it is the code listed in the manual and I think a lot of people enter it because they see it.

If that doesn't work try this :

* 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
push buttom "track up" for 3 seconds
The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!

Hope that helps.....

No sound from my front and back speakers in my van ive got subs


Make sure that when you hooked up your 4 channel amp to the remote turn on lead it is the same as the sub. Only hook amps to the Blue w/ white strip. The solid blue is power antenna lead and will lose power when on CD, ipod etc and only stays powered when the Tuner is on. Hope this fixes your problem.

Hi, there

I think that there is a code error in your device. You should take it to a Kenwood store and they will put a new code in it.

Good luck.
