    aftermarket HU's usually don't make you have a security code. check the manual

    Re: Need Help Asap With Kenwood Hu

    they dont say **** in manual, they say that the security code cannot be changed nor desactivated when you first activate it ...
    wtF? so i don't know it I need to buy a new HU because of this BS?

    btw.
    i pressed the reset button witch is suppose to reset the whole thing but always ask me the security code.


    ppl with kenwood plz help, there HAS to be a way to get in, or else I call for the most stupid feature ever in a HU.

    Ditto! Really you should only have a security code if you entered one. If you did not you shouldn't have this problem. I have had 2 Excelon's and on my X-589, I bought a new battery and diconnet power several times, never had that problem, because I never entered a security code. Kenwood should be able to help you.

    The only reason it will ask you for a code is if someone (whether it was you or someone else....did you buy the deck new or used?) programmed one in.

    You either need to know the code or send it off to someone that knows how to reset them to the factory default of Code: Off.
