Question about Cars & Trucks
After many attempts its on waiting code i have to wait for 24h for another attempt
Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:
The procedure for entering the security code differs on various models of Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common procedures:
Type 3: Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
To send the letter A, press the 2 key once then press the Track Up key. To send the letter B, press the 2 key twice then press the Track up key.
Finally, when all of the letters are entered, press and hold the Track Up button for 3 seconds.
The key sequence to enter the security code KCAR is:
A Security Code Bug in Some Kenwoods There is a reported bug in the security code handling of some Kenwood stereos. In models with the bug, the security code is stored incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.
In models with this bug, decrement the third character of the security code by one. For example, if the security code is 1111, enter it as 1101. If the security code is 9999, enter 9989.
Finding the Kenwood Security Code There are backdoor codes for each Kenwood car stereo, based on the model and serial numbers.
Find out how to reset the code or what the common backdoor codes are here (among solutions).
Sending the RadioBack to Kenwood If all else fails, send the stereo back to Kenwood to have the security code reset.

disconnect your battery wait 30 seconds then reconnect and it wll start for sure. if not get a new or clean your old key and make sure it is dry then try again. I have dealt with this a hundred times an think it has to do with worn chips on the keys/bad sensor in the ignition.

Hello, I would assume this is a starter problem. You can go to Autozone and get a free diagnostic of your electrical system for free and tell you if your starter, alternator, battery is bad and/or if you have any trouble codes present in your system. I would also check your battery connections to see if they are tight and I would also check and see if your starter cables are tight as well. I hope this helps you and Good Luck!

yes thats normal when you enter a wrong code. You will have to wait about 2 hours with ignition key on and it will ask for the code again, get the code wrong again and the wait time doubles, from 2 to 4 to 8 hours etc.
Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.
