Sorry, there is nothing like that available on any car stereos I have ever repaired. I have been repairing many different aftermarket brands for over 17 years.

The Kenwood serial number is on the bottom of the stereo on a sticker along with the model number.

You can pull the radio very easy, take the face and the trim ring off. Then use something very slim and stiff that will fit between the radio and the cage that holds the radio, your radio should have come with 2 metal strips about 6 inches long that are used for pulling the radio. Push those metal strips in along the sides of the radio but inside the cage, and when they are in far enough you can pull the radio out of the cage that holds it. You can pull it out about a little over half way and see the serial number on the bottom.

I hope this helps you pull the radio a little easier, since there is no way to get the radio to display the serial number on the face.

I have a kenwood KDC-MP438U stereo. Ipod error.


Hi If anything the stereo was probably designed and tested using a certain version of the Iphones software, now that version 4 has been released the way the IPhone communicates may have changed.

As a result the stereo is no longer able to talk to the phone and vice versa. your probably best off contacting Kenwood direct to see if they are aware of this problem and if there is anything that can be done about it.

On my kenwood kdc mp438u i tried everything it said to do but it keep saying protect


Could be a short circuit on your speaker output, try disconnecting all 4 speaker wires and then power up. Otherwise its the audio amplifier circuit that needs to be replaced ( audio IC )

"PROTECT" is constantly displayed on the screen of my kdc-mp438u


You need to unplug the unit from the back and find the problem. Usually, it is almost always your speaker connections. Once you find the problem within the speakers, plug it back in and it resets it.

Kenwood KDC-MP438U "USB ERROR"


IF YOU DID NOT PRESS THE RESET BUTTON NEX TO THE USB PLUG, DO IT. IT WILL REINITIATE THE DEVICE TO THE FACTORY; YOU WILL HAVE TO ADJUST THE CLOCK.

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
