Hi there!
My name is***** for the delay. I will try my best to help you with your question.

Do not try random codes - if you make too many incorrect attempts you could permanently disable the stereo.

To get the correct code, check in your vehicle's manual. If it is not given there, then you can call your local car dealership - they should have a record of the code if the stereo is the original that was factory fitted in the vehicle.

If that doesn't work or if the stereo is an aftermarket one, then you will need to contact Kenwood for an unlock code.
Kindly rate my service 5 stars at the top of your question page if my answer helped so I am rewarded for my time; tips appreciated :)
Otherwise please reply back if you need further assistance.
