I will not be able to call you because my phone service is currently down. I will still be able to assist you.

The unfortunate thing about radios like the one that you bought from the pawn shop is that you will not be able to use the radio without entering the unlock code that it is presently set to. The unlock code is an anti-theft feature that prevents stolen radios from being used. I do hope that the one you bought was not stolen and then pawned. In any case, you will definitely need the code that is now programmed into it.

There is, however, an article that addresses resetting the Kenwood security code. Please click here to read it. I hope that the info there will help in one way or another.
