The Kenwood decks do not require a code...

AUTHOR: Ronny g - (USA)

..they come default with no code. The only way the deck requires a code, is if the ORIGINAL owner/operator of the deck went into the menu for security...and personally programed in a code.

Now..why even have the option to program in a code? Possibly as a theft deterrent you think??

I find it hard to believe Kenwood would "sell" you an unlock code at all...but it is common knowledge..that alpha numeric (K-C-A-R) will unlock 99% of Kenwood decks.

However some decks require this to be done via a remote control..which if you do not have one it is 30-50 bucks retail..or look on eBay..you might find one for 10  bucks.

Good Luck.
