Question about Kenwood KDC-MP4032 CD Player

1 Answer

Doesnt turn on

I just bought a 1998 honda civic and it has this radio, the dealer that sold me the car swears up and down that he saw it working, and is offering to replace it with a cheaper radio if i cant get this one working, i would like to keep this one because its a lot nicer

the display doesnt light up, no lights are on, it doesnt accept cds, the only thing that works is when i take the face off, the eject button blinks on and off

is there some way of just hitting a power button that im not seeing, or is the radio broken?

Try pulling it out of the bracket and checking the fuse or jiggling the wires ;o

If the code is not written on the radio casing or inside the glove compartment (or similar place inside your car ) then the majority of HONDA codes are only available from here 

You will require the car VIN number and Radio serial Number 

If they cannot provide your code then you will have to try your HONDA Main Dealer .....or a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

I have unpluged my batterieand i need a code to program my cd player in order to be able to have full access to my radio on my 2004 honda civic si 1.7 liter motor

You are one of the many unlucky people who have an anti-theft system in the OEM radio that locks it when you improperly remove it, or if it loses power for too long, and unfortunetly there is no easy or free way to solve this problem. You will need to go to your local Honda dealer and have them unlock the radio for you. Only a dealer can obtain the unlock code for a specific radio from the Honda support center. And of course, they will charge you for the service. Just how much they charge depends on the dealer. If you want another alternative though, you can always take the OEM radio out of the car and replace it with an aftermarket model, like a Kenwood, Pioneer, Alpine, Sony or the like. Some models will cost about the same ammount that the dealer might charge for unlocking the radio. And the aftermarket models will never ask for a code to make it work again after you unplugged the battery.

Honda Accord Radio code

Hi all! I have solved my radio dilemma. I took the dash apart and found the manufacturer sticker on the bottom of the radio. It has the serial number on the sticker. You need this number when you call the Honda dealer and tell them your problem. I simply called and explained what happened to the service department of my local Honda dealer and gave them the serial number I found on the radio and they gave me the code for no charge. They just put the number in their computer and VOILA! out came the five digit code(which, by the way, is probably the same for all Honda Accord EX and the same Acura cars from 1994 to 1998 that have a casette player/radio. The code is 21543. Try it if you are having this problem and own the cars with said dates above). Hope this helps someone else.

Clarion dxz545mp doesn't power, does not work.

Check the fuses in the fuse block under the hood. Your clock fuse and radio constant power fuse are combined in this vehicle.
