If you need the manual, Kenwood has a website where you can download it. The websiteis www.kenwoodusa.com. When you get to the site, on the right side goingtoward the bottom you will see product search, type the model number itwill bring you to another page to down load the manual. Just find themodel number again and it will allow you to look at the manual and print it. This will give you directions for entering the code along with the actual code. Alsoyou will find a tech support number and they can help you as well.

If you need anything else, please let me know

my best to you

Need master unlock code


As far as I nkow, you need to contact Kenwood with the radio serial number to get the unlock code. In the past, they would not give it to you without giving them a special code from a card that came inside the package. You can always try though, give them a call, the number is on their website.

I cant unlock my kenwood z638 please help.i dont have a remote the stereo came with a purchased car .i had to select a random model because all it says is z638 please help


Unfortunately Kenwood codes are only available from the Main Dealer or by using a Radio Decoding Service who will connect a laptop to read the working code inside your radio`s memory chip (EEPROM)

Need Unlock Code for Kenwood MP235 car stereo


Look for a really small hole in the face plate. Put a tip of a pen into it. Press it in and then it should turn on. If this doesn't work, take it to a place that installs them, they'll help....Usually for free....

Kenwood radio is locked


Go to your local dealership for your make of car. ask them if they do radio/cd player re-codes.. if not they should be able to put you in touch with someone who does as they use them all the time to re-code their trade in car sound systems... it usually costs about 15 quid or so...hope this helps..cheers.
