Hello, Welcome to Just Answer.

I am so sorry your radio is not working, due to security reasons, for your protection we are prohibited from giving out the code to your radio. This measure is put in place to prevent thefts, and we want to keep you and everyone else safe. But the good news is, you can get the code from Kenwood by showing proof of ownership.

Thank you for visiting Just Answer and if you have any other questions please feel free to hit the reply button.
