You will need a remote for this
Common Kenwood Security Codes
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 which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models.
1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners.
Entering Your Kenwood Security Code
If the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code.

The procedure to enter your 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 holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds until the "..." display disappears.
Enter the security code using your 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 using your 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 using your Kenwood remote.
Entering Letters on your Kenwood Remote
To enter a letter using your Kenwood remote, press a button once for the first letter, twice for the second letter, and three times for the third letter -- then press the Track Up or Next Track key to send the letter.

To send the letter 'A', press the 2 key once and then press the Track Up key. To send the letter 'B', press the 2 key twice and then press the Track up key.

Finally, when you are done entering all of the letters, 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
Your 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 thie bug, the security code is stored incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.

In models with this bug, you have to decrement the third character of the security code by one. If your security code was 1111, you would enter your security code as 1101. If your security code was 9999, you would enter 9989.

Tip

Robotek - your "Type 2" method worked like a charm on my Kenwood KDC-MP5028...


Hi there, there is a standard procedure we use to bypass the code when we have the gear on the test bench for repair. Try this and it should sort out your problem

You need the remote control to do this, if you don't have one, then you may need to go to a KENWOOD agent and get them to clear the code for you, or purchase one for your use.

Keypad reset. Now that I have the original keypad code, how do I change the code?


your owner manual tells you. Why not use the original code?

To change, here is 96 procedure, should be the same. please give good rating if this is what you want.

Entry Code The system (permanent) entry code is located in three places:
  • on the owner's wallet code card (in glove compartment)
  • electronically accessible by requesting the remote anti-theft personality module KEYCODE PID on the New Generation Star (NGS) Tester
  • on the remote anti-theft personality module housing
The remote anti-theft personality module is programmed at the factory with a five-digit entry code. A replacement remote anti-theft personality module includes replacement labels and a new owner's code card. To turn on the interior lamps and light all illuminated components:
  • press any button on the keyless entry keypad (14A626).
To program a temporary access code:
  • Enter the permanent code on the keyless entry keypad.
  • Press button 1/2 within 5 seconds of last digit of permanent code. (This alerts system to accept temporary code.)
  • Enter alternate five-digit code. Do not exceed 5 seconds between entering digits or between pressing the 1/2 key and entering the first digit.

Car remotes are not like universal TV remotes, you can not program them to work with a radio they were not designed to work with.

If this is the remote that came with the radio, you may just need a new battery.

I don't have the sevice info in front of me right now to tell you if this remote is compatible with your radio.
