Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:

  • KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models.
  • 3051 - This is the security code that is printed in many Kenwood model manuals.
  • 1234 - This is a security code that Kenwood owners commonly choose.
  • If the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code.
    The procedure for entering the security code differs on various models of Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common procedures:

    Type 1

    • During the code request mode, while pressing the DISP key, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds until the "..." display disappears.
    • Enter the security code with the Kenwood remote.

    Type 2

    • Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear.
    • Enter the security code with the Kenwood remote.

    Type 3: Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030

    • Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset keys until the display shows the letter C.
    • Enter the security code with the Kenwood remote.
    Entering Letters with a Kenwood Remote To enter a letter with a Kenwood remote, press a button once for the first letter, twice for the second letter, and three times for the third letter. Press the Track Up or Next Track key to send the letter.
    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:
    • 5
    • 5
    • Track Up
    • 2
    • 2
    • 2
    • Track Up
    • 2
    • Track Up
    • 7
    • 7
    • Track Up
    The Kenwood should then enter tuner mode.
    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!

SOURCE: put wrong code in fiat car stereo now it just says wait

hello there

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.

Many Thanks

Reset security code 2003 Chevy impaula


Instructions
    • 1 Attempt to start the car. If it does not start, or dies very quickly after it started, then leave the key in the ignition in the "ON" position and wait 10 minutes. Make sure the security light is flashing. After 10 minutes the security light will stop flashing and either turn off or stay on steadily. When it does, then turn the ignition off, wait 20 seconds and attempt to restart the car.
    • 2 Repeat this procedure three times in quick succession without removing the key from the ignition.
    • 3 Start the car following the third 10-minute waiting period. The car should start and stay on. If it stays running, then the codes have been relearned and the problem is solved. If the car still does not start then you may need to have all or part of the passlock system replaced

1994 BMW 525 radio displays "CODE WAIT" after I put in the code numbers


You need to wait 1 hour before attempting to put the code in. Either the ignition needs to stay on 1 hour or drive it for 1 hour. If they key is turned off before then, you will need to start again.

I lost all power in a 2005 Trailblazer. Called GM and they said to kick the key forward and wait 10 min, and this would reset it. It did but now the radio A/C door locks and windows don't work. What...


Do it three times in a row.

1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.

How can you get your radio to work in you 1994 saab? when you disconnect the battery what is the next step to resetting the code?


Anti- Theft Lock

1. Switch on the ignition

2. Press the VOL/ ON switch to turn on the system on, CODE IN will appear in the display.

3. Enter the 4 digit code using the preset buttons. The system will now appear.
- I believe the code for your car is 5253, but you might want to call the Saab dealer for the code

If yu make a mistake while entering your code, finish entering all four digits. Press and hold BAND switch until CODE IN appears in the display. The correct code can now be entered.

NOTE: If you enter an incorrect code three times in succession, you must wait one hour with the Audio Sysytem turned on before making a new attempt. After the one hour waiting period, the system will allow only one code entry attempt. If the code entry is incorrect, you must again wait one hour before another attempt.

This morning when I attempted to start my 2006 Hummer H3, nothing happened. I thought I may have a dead battery but the lights and radio work fine. I then noticed the Passlock security lock light was on...


Hello:Try this procedure: turn key on, turn to start, let key come back to on wait ten minutes, turn key off wait 10 seconds turn key back on wait 10 minutes. turn key off wait 10 seconds turn key back on wait 10 minutes turn key off wait 10 seconds NOW try and start. In addition you might try tapping on switch assembly while trying to start. There is not any way to disable passlock. You might try having the engine control system codes read

How to rest the radio to input the code? Which fuse for the radio?


...Hold down the BND button for a few seconds. After too many failed attempts, the radio may not reset, in which case you'll need to wait an hour with the battery disconnected, and then try it again.

Resetting radio code


You need to be very careful Each failed attempt causes a long delay before you can enter it again. Follow the instructions exactly. You may need to use the car for a day or more before attempting it again if you failed too many times. The radio should say CODE not ERROR. Error means no code can be entered now. You must wait until the radio displays CODE.

I have a 1998 volvo S70 and the radio wont reset, I left the battery disconnected for over 3 hours and it still says off, how do I reset it to put in my code?


You need to leave the key in the ignition in position I (accessory) for two hours, after that it will say code and you can input the code. The radio switches to "OFF" after three failed attempts with the wrong code. If you dont have the code call the dealership with your VIN and they can give it to you.
