This is a safety feature and it usually suggest that there is a problem with the internal amplifier, it could also be a trapped speaker wire. Remove the radio and check if any of the cables have been damaged and if you power up the radio with the speaker plug disconnected that will tell you if the fault is in the car or the radio

SOURCE: i pressed my radios reset

Per page 26 in the following manual: http://www.sirius.com/pdf/manuals/kdcx679.pdf

The security code can't be changed, once it's set. Did you go through the sequence of steps on page 26 of the manual?

If you did (in fact) lock in and approve a security code, you'll need to contact Kenwood support and prove ownership (e.g. receipt) before they can give you instructions for resetting the code.

There is a hack for the ASIC that stores the security code out on the Internet (use Google to find it).

If my response helped you, please reward me with positive feedback (Fixed it!). Thanx!

I have a Kenwood kdc -mp245 and when its on it reads protect. How do I stop that?


you need to check all your speakers first. just because they play don't mean they aren't blown. This protects your radio from blowing out any channels. Once you replace that bad speaker or shorted out speaker, reset the radio and you are good to go.

You will need to wire into the permanent live , if the unit has bluetooth then you pair the unit with the phone and play your tracks via bluetooth.

How do I connect the bluetooth from the radio to my phone?


This radio is Bluetooth "Ready" and will not pair to any blue tooth device until an additional peice of hardware is purchased and installed. Page 13 of the manual describes this as a "Bluetooth HANDS FREE BOX.

Unless you have purchased this and installed it - pairing is not possible. I hope this helps & good luck!

Kenwood kdc-mp242 main sceen doesnot light up anymore or when it wants to,radio work well


you probably have bad solder connections on some surface mount resistors inside of the radio. they would be on the right side of the radio as it is facing you. they need to be resoldered.

KDC-W7537U model number Code for bluetooth


most of the default codes are 1234, 0000, 1111 unless changed by the user. if this doesn't work, you can always do a hard rest of your radio by pressing the small pin hole button on the face of the radio.

hope this helps

Need to disable bluetooth cell phone feature.


it is specifically made for iPod - iPhone. You must be near a vehicle that is accepting a call on a Kenwood.

The Kenwood Excelon KDC-X493 CD receiver was built from the ground up to accommodate an iPodĀ® in your vehicle. This versatile stereo features a front-panel USB input for connecting and controlling your iPod, along with a 13-character display that shows off your artist and song info.

Looks like there is no way to disable Bluetooth. What you could do is borrow 5 phones and add them to the system. It will ignore any after 5 are installed.

Kenwood KDC BT742U Instruction Manual Bluetooth Setup Registering...

Your manual is here and there is very little to be found with the search word 'disable', I suspect because that is what the unit is sold for.
