Hi there

Expert:  ElectronicsPete replied 8 months ago.

You can try the following common 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.

If the above codes don't work, then you will need to contact your nearest Kenwood dealer or get in touch with Kenwood directly at
