Good Day,

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!

I need to know where the Validation code is in my kenwood 7100 unit. I am trying to get the unlock code for the map update on my SD card


The "validation code" is displayed on the unit when you first place the update SD card (or DISC) in the kenwood unit.

Unlock code for kenwood ddx7019 w/ no remote


There is no way to clear the security code without the remote. The remote must be used, no way around it.

You can take your radio to an authorized Kenwood service center and they can clear the code for you at a pretty reasonable price. My shop charges $25. Most should be about the same.

Require unlock code for unit as no documentation, this unit arrived in a vehicle i bought from japan and i m eager to get it to work. HDV-910 Kenwood


As I have informed another person on this site; there are only two ways to aquire an unlock code, you'll have to send it back to Kenwood or ask the person who sold you the car. If you send it back to Kenwood they'll require proof of purchase.

I have a kenwood kdc-mpv619 when you turn it on it ask for a code well i am not the orignal owner of this unit i do not know the code and have no way of finding out what it could be i have been to other...


You are pretty much screwed; Kenwood will not release any information to help you unlock the unit period. They don't know if you stole it or even what the code is. The only way to get the problem fixed is to send the unit to Kenwood along with a legit sales receipt and they will unlock it for you. That's the only way it will happen, it's what I had to do and I'm a dealer.

I just bought a KDC MP-235 to put in a 95 camaro with bose amplified speakers. I ordered a amplifier intergration component to reduce the output of the 50 watt per channel head unit as to have better...


Hi,

Yes, the Kenwood KDC MP-235 has two (2) line level outputs (RCA types red & white). However, these outputs internally passed through an electronic crossover/filter making them appropriate for subwoofer amps only.

If your unit is an MP-235CR, then the same outputs would be for the rear amp (not subs) and are full range (unfiltered).

If indeed your unit is an MP-235 and if I may make a suggestion, still connect the Kenwood to four (4) speakers. It would not be technically correct to leave the internal amps operating with no load (speakers) connected. Additionally, you would be getting 200 watts (4 X 50) more to your system (since it is already there).

If your Bose amp & speaker are subs, then no issue, however if the Bose is for a full range of speakers, then only the woofer part would be working efficiently.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
