    the security code listed there is just an example code. is there a way to reprogram the faceplate as if it was new-- no code entered before.

  • hckydv7 Aug 19, 2008

    Unale to use last commet as It was an international link.

  • hckydv7 Aug 19, 2008

    pushing reset button only resets unit if there is another problem. you have to enter the security code to activate system at that time.

  • hckydv7 Aug 19, 2008

    code is set by the one who purchase radio. i want to know if it is possible to start from the bigging as if i just bought it.

Hi....
After you read the Manual that VOODOOMOX. gave.
You will see that is no way to Operate the Radio.
Unless you put the right Code.
I had a Kenwwod Few Months ago.
I call Kenwood Customer service,
They told me , That I need to send the Radio to My kenwood local Service center, And give the PROOF of PURSHACE, To the Local kenwwod service.

Is Not A SOLUTION but I hope help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...

    did you try resetting the unit like the way it was illustrated? this will remove current setting on the unit

    thanks guill



    hckydv7, you may also try to remove the whole unit from the car, look for an internal battery at the back part of the unit, remove it, let it sit for around an hour at least. as per some users this was able to remove the code.



    if all else fail, please consult the seller of the car from ebay for the code (just a personal thought)

Can not find the code for my kenwood kdc-516s


Same problem, different rig. Bought a bronco with a Kenwood KDC 516s in it, Guy had put a new optima battery in it CODE_ _ _ _  appeared and he has no clue what the "code" is. I have no "remote" and no desire to buy a "remote" for a #$%@ car stereo. Is there any way for me to re-set the code w/out the expense of a remote or a fee from a tech?? the musically challenged, Brew
P.S. The owners manual under the "accessory" section  mentions the KDC x617/v-6017 remotes but fails to mention a remote for the 516s??
