You must have the remote to clear the security code. It will not work by using the keys on the display. here is the method of clearing the code.

1. When you are requested to enter the security code, while
pressing down on [AUTO] key, use a long-press on "track forward >>I" key
for 3 seconds. (----disappears.)
2. Using the remote controller, input “KCAR.”
Press remote controller [5] key 2 times and then press "track forward >>I" key. (Input for “K.”)
Press remote controller [2] key 3 times and then press "track forward >>I" key. (Input for “C.”)
Press remote controller [2] key once and then press "track forward >>I" key. (Input for “A.”)
Press remote controller [7] key 2 times and then press "track forward >>I" key. (Input for “R.”)
3. The security is released and the unit enters the STANDBY
sourcing mode.
4. If a wrong code is input, the unit goes into the Code Request
mode.

If you do not have a remote, you can take it to an authorized kenwood service center and they can do it for a small fee. My shop charges $25. Or you can order a remote from them and do it yourself, or borrow a remote from a friend who has a recent Kenwood model radio, they all work with it if the radio is new in the last 5 years or so.
Since this will clear the code if done properly, a rating of "FixYa" would be appreciated.

Thanks and let me know if you need any more help.

SOURCE: UNLOCK SECURITY CODE

for your kdc-mp528 will work whith code KCAR entered from the remote

Common Kenwood Security Codes
Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:

KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models.
3051 - This is the security code which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models.
1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners.
Entering Your Kenwood Security Code
If the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code.

The procedure to enter your security code differs on various models of Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common 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 until the "..." display disappears.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 2
Press and hold the "Auto" button and "Track up" (next track button on the right) on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 3: Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset keys until the display shows the letter 'C'.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Entering Letters on your Kenwood Remote
To enter a letter using your Kenwood remote, press a button once for the first letter, twice for the second letter, and three times for the third letter -- then press the Track Up or Next Track key to send the letter.

To send the letter 'A', press the 2 key once and then press the Track Up key. To send the letter 'B', press the 2 key twice and then press the Track up key.

Finally, when you are done entering all of the letters, press and hold the Track Up button for 3 seconds.

The key sequence to enter the security code KCAR is:

5
5
Track Up
2
2
2
Track Up
2
Track Up
7
7
Track Up
Your Kenwood should then enter tuner mode.

A Security Code Bug in some Kenwoods
There is a reported bug in the security code handling of some Kenwood stereos. In models with thie bug, the security code is stored incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.

In models with this bug, you have to decrement the third character of the security code by one. If your security code was 1111, you would enter your security code as 1101. If your security code was 9999, you would enter 9989.

i hope this works for you.

To reset the code do the following:
1) Turn on the car.2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears.3) Press >>' and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around. Press the Eject button and then try it again.)4) The screen will still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.5) Press the 2 key on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.6) Press the 2 key on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.7) Press the 7 key on the remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the faceplate. Hit the >>' key on the faceplate.8) The radio goes into All Off mode and you are set! Hit the SRC button on the faceplate to select CD, Radio, etc.

You must have the remote to clear the security code. If you do not have a remote, this will not work and there is no other way to clear the code. If you do not have a remote you must either buy one or borrow one from a freind who has a kenwood radio. Most all of the remotes for the last 5 to 8 years will work. If you can not get a remote, you can take the radio's to a authorized Kenwood service center and they can clear the code for a reasonable cost. My shop charges $25, that should be about what other shops charge.

This first one is for the KDC-MP528

1. When you are requested to enter the security code, while
pressing down on [AUTO] key, use a long-press on >>I key
for 3 seconds. (----disappears.)
2. Using the remote controller, input “KCAR.”
Press remote controller [5] key 2 times and then press >>I
key. (Input for “K.”)
Press remote controller [2] key 3 times and then press >>I
key. (Input for “C.”)
Press remote controller [2] key once and then press >>I
key. (Input for “A.”)
Press remote controller [7] key 2 times and then press >>I
key. (Input for “R.”)
3. The security is released and the unit enters the STANDBY
sourcing mode.
4. If a wrong code is input, the unit goes into the Code Request
mode.

Now this is for the KDC-MP828

1. While “– – – –” is being displayed, press [>>I ] key for at
least 3 seconds while pressing [AUTO] key.
This makes “– – – –” display disappear.
2. Using the remote controller, input “KCAR”.
Press remote controller [5] key 2 times (Input for “K”) and
then press [>>I ] key.
Press remote controller [2] key 3 times (Input for “C”) and
then press [>>I ] key.
Press remote controller [2] key once (Input for “A”) and then
press [>>I ] key.
Press remote controller [7] key 2 times (Input for “R”) and
then press [>>I ] key.
3. The security is released and the unit enters the STANDBY
mode.
4. If a wrong code is input, the unit goes into the Code Request
mode.

A rating of "FixYa!" would be appreciated for this free information.

Thanks,

Dave
