Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video

4 Answers

I HAVE A 5 YEAR OLD KENWOOD KDC-x569. I have a new car I'm putting it in and just realized the security system has locked. It was so long ago I put it in I have no idea what the code is. Is there a way to override it. What can I do? I paid good money for it and I don't want to throw it out. I bought it from tweeter Etc. and they can't seem to help me.

    We do not have the remote control anymore and that seems like the answer that will work. Thanks Jim

  • drewmax1 Jul 04, 2008

    We don't have the remote anymore for the stereo, other than buying a new remote is there anyway to enter a default code or erase the old one and put in a new one without it?

  • drewmax1 Jul 04, 2008

    The service manual, after 8$ told us the same thing you told us before and does not mention a way of clearing the code without a remote control. Do you know if it's even possible to do this without a remote?

  • drewmax1 Jul 04, 2008

    That's the same thing over again, we don't have a remote, therefore we cannot hit a number 7.

  • drewmax1 Jul 04, 2008

    We read the service manual, it doesn't say anything new.

  • drewmax1 Jul 04, 2008

    We don't have a remote, it's 5 years old, and it is asking for a
    security code none of us remember. We've tried everything you have
    mentioned so far and it hasn't worked. We even read the service manual
    and it simply told us the same thing you had told us before, only it
    took us 5 minutes and 8$ to figure it out. Isn't there some other way
    of clearing the code without a remote. If there is, it isn't in the
    service manual you recommended we buy, which we've bought and it has
    failed us.

Hi there

Press the auto and track up, on the face at the same time. The four digit line should go away, then use your remote and enter your code

The code is 5227

Press the numbers:
5 (two times) then press the track up key
2 (three times) then track up
2 (1 time) and track up
7 (two times) track up key again

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as FixYa.

Good Day,

Your radio will require one of the following procedures.

(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
