The only way to reset the security code is to send the deck back to Kenwood along with proof of ownership. Sorry there's no other way.

The following is per Kenwood:

Q: How do I reset my security code?

A: If you do not know the security code for your unit, you will need to take the unit to a Kenwood authorized service center to have it decoded. The code feature can only be activated when the code has been entered twice, so it isn't accidentally activated. The service center will often require you to provide a proof of purchase as this feature is designed for theft prevention and the proof of purchase will ensure you are the rightful owner of the product.

I just purchased a used motorhome that has a Kenwood KDC-MPV7019/MPV619 receiver. The previous owner did not provide the security code for the unit. How can I reset the code?


You will have to contact the previous owner to get the code otherwise you will have to buy a new stereo. There is a possibilty of being able to contact kenwood they might be able to reset it but it costs about 60 dollars to do so. I'm sorry..

I have a Kenwood KDC-322 car radio. It says enter code. Does anyone know where i can go to get this code?


The only way that i know how to get the stereo to unlock is to remove the power from the stereo for about 10-15 seconds then reconnect power back to stereo this should reset the unit.

Hopefully you know the security code......go to www.kenwood.com you can download the KDC9017 manual. I think following it at your own pace will be much easier.

Need security codes for kenwood KDC 4020


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.

My work van stereo is now locked and needs a code after I had to change the van Do you know it or who I could ask who might know what to do It is a Kenwood and on the front panel it has KDC-5016


All original car radios have their own unique security codes.

Assuming your radio is the original for this vehicle you simply take your vehicle ownership and registration papers to a Ford workshop they can get the code from the Ford computer network on the spot.

If the code does not work then it means that this radio is not the original for your car as it would have been replaced with them radio model.

If this Kenwood is an after vehicle purchase, you may need to contact Kenwood Car Audio.
Or get Kenwood's contact details through your local car audio dealer.

I have a Kenwood kdc mp828. I disconnected my battery cable and now can not remember my security code. I need to reset the unit so I can again listen to my stereo.


I read a blog on your site about Kenwood stereo's. I used that information to unlock my stereo security code. Albiet, I did have to figure out a bit of the code needed myself. I am again able to listen to music on my stereo.
