Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There isn't a way for a user to disable the security code function once a code has been programmed, if it could be disabled at will then it wouldn't aid in preventing theft. IF you don't have record of the code then radio will need to be sent to Kenwood, with proof of ownership they will be able to disable or change the code for you.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
