Thats either from a bad wire, or the theft system is turned on, if the theft system is on then yes there is a code to unlock it but you'll have to get it from the dealer, if its a bad wire then there is no code, check the ground and power wire thats the best place to start...

I have lost my code to my kenwood stereo. I have a the model KDC-MP435U. How do I unlock it?

Kenwood cannot be unlocked without the code on line. This has to go to Kenwood or a radio de-coding company.
Sorry but at least you know.
Good luck with it, Dave

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)

I took the battery out of and now my Kenwood Stereo asks for a code.

Reset the radio by pushing the small button on left side of the #1 preset. it is probably pulling the code for the anti theft protection. if you already have a lock code use it to unlock the tuner otherwise reset the tuner

"PROTECT" is displayed on the car stereo when turned on

This is really easy to fix. Look on the face plate for a REALLY small hole. Put the tip of a pen in the hole and it should work. This usually means the stereo isn't wired properly so if the PROTECT keeps coming on after you've re-set it, take it to a dealer. To make sure you're everything is in properly. Hope this helps...

Security Code for Protect mode

Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
