You can enter a 4-digit security code which must be used when the unit is removed from the vehicle, or the constant power source is disconnected from the unit. When constant power is restored to the unit, the security code must be entered before the unit becomes operational.
If the code is lost or forgotten I am afraid the unit has to be re-coded by a Kenwood dealer.
Good luck with it.

I need unlock code for my kdc-mp2035 kenwood stereo


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)

Radio needs to be reset, I have no code.


Unfortunately KENWOOD codes are not available for free from anywhere on the Internet.

Try your local Radio Decoding Service or Car Radio / Audio Store ...who will connect it to a laptop and read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

KENWOOD RADIO CODES


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 the "Auto" button and "Track up" 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.

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.

You can clear the code it you have the remote for it. No remote means no way to use the radio. If you know of a friend who has a Kenwood car stereo and the remote, you should be able to clear it yourself. It does not need to be the remote from that model of Kenwood. Most of the Kenwood remotes are the same for all the different models. I use the same remote for all models of Kenwoods that I get at my service center. You could always buy a remote, but if the problem is more than just clearing the code you would be wasting more money. I work at an authorized Kenwood service center and have over 18 years of experience with them. I have seen on rare occasions when the radio needs the code cleared, it has a problem with the microproccessor or the IC that is used for the security code. As I said, it is rare, but it can happen and may be safer to not spend anymore money on a new remote.

If you decide you want to buy a remote or you can borrow one from somebody, let me know and I will send you a link to a place you can buy one if needed, and then I will also post the procedure you need to use for clearing the code.

If the Kenwood dealer you took the radio to is a retail outlet and not a authorized Kenwood repair center, it is likely that they do not know the proper procedure for clearing the code. Kenwood does not tell their retail outlets how to do this procedure.

If you need me to post the procedure, please wait on rating me until I post for you.

Let me know how you want to do this.

Motorola and Kenwood compatibility....


Hello!! First of all, any radio in the right frequency will work with any other, to work just need the following features: -Frequency, 154.700 which is correct as you said. - the Squelch code, this could be PL or DPL. The XV2100 has a table of codes that you can try, as you dont know this code form the Kenwood, you will need to check one by one. If you have the chance to send the Kenwood to some to "Read" the radio parameters( freq.,Code, ETc) you can look those parameters on the XV. Hope this can help, any comments neto-rola@hotmail.com Good Luck
