Hi there and welcome

For most units the backdore code number is ***** (KCAR)

* Press numeric key "5" ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key "2" ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key "2" ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key "7" ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key

Your radio will require one of the following procedures as it differs per a batch so go thorough each until it is unlocked

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 (so that "..." disappears).
Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on face of radio at the same time. The four dash lines ( . . . . ) should "disappear".

Then using your remote enter your code.

Type 3
Model# ***** and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset key (preset keys are the buttons on face of radio for storing you "favorite" radio stations
). "C" should display.
Then using your remote, enter your code.

Enter your number from the remote control unit. Your code number is ***** (KCAR)

* Press numeric key "5" ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key "2" ( 3 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key "2" ( 1 time ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key
* Press numeric key "7" ( 2 times ) and press the Track UP/Next Track key

The security is canceled and the set enters the TUNER mode!

Also on completion of the code reset procedure , hold the track up button down for 3 seconds.

Let me know how you go please

what exactly happened when you entered the code?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I entered the code and followed your instructions but there was no change. It remained at the same point when I entered the code. I did it over and over again. If you do not have another solution, please refer me to another expert. Thank you.

No problem, I will opt out.

I wish you all the best.
