20 Most Recent Kenwood 2005 KDC-MP5028 CD/MP3 ReceiverFree Standard Shipping Questions & Answers


yea the got a short somewhere. Horn fuse might or might not work something with the radio. I would say start with the horn. The horn is a controlled short sometimes shorts it self out. Open your steering wheel and work from there. For your radio look at all the fuses that you know work the radio and go from there. What kinda car is it year things like that would help because if it older wires, fuses, fusible links things like that go bad over the years. Especially if you run a lot of power through the wires that was made for that kinda power like upgraded speakers, headunit (radio) amps things like that. Older cars and trucks are make with cheap radio wires. hope this helps

you will need a remote for this
Common Kenwood Security Codes
Many Kenwood radios are configured with the same security codes:

KCAR - This seems to be a "backdoor" to some Kenwood models.
3051 - This is the security code which is printed in the manual of many Kenwood models.
1234 - This is a security code commonly chosen by Kenwood owners.
Entering Your Kenwood Security Code
If the car battery fails or is disconnected, the Kenwood will ask for the security code.

The procedure to enter your security code differs on various models of Kenwood car stereos. Here are three of the more common procedures:

Type 1
During the code request mode, while holding the DISP key depressed, press and hold the Volume UP or DOWN key for 3 seconds until the "..." display disappears.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 2
Press the "Auto" button and "Track up" on the face of radio at the same time until the four dash lines disappear.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Type 3: Model# DPX-4020 and DPX-4030
Press and hold the 1 then the 6 preset keys until the display shows the letter 'C'.
Enter the security code using your Kenwood remote.
Entering Letters on your Kenwood Remote
To enter a letter using your Kenwood remote, press a button once for the first letter, twice for the second letter, and three times for the third letter -- then press the Track Up or Next Track key to send the letter.

To send the letter 'A', press the 2 key once and then press the Track Up key. To send the letter 'B', press the 2 key twice and then press the Track up key.

Finally, when you are done entering all of the letters, press and hold the Track Up button for 3 seconds.

The key sequence to enter the security code KCAR is:

5
5
Track Up
2
2
2
Track Up
2
Track Up
7
7
Track Up
Your Kenwood should then enter tuner mode.

A Security Code Bug in some Kenwoods
There is a reported bug in the security code handling of some Kenwood stereos. In models with thie bug, the security code is stored incorrectly. The workaround is to enter the wrong security code.

In models with this bug, you have to decrement the third character of the security code by one. If your security code was 1111, you would enter your security code as 1101. If your security code was 9999, you would enter 9989.

Hey there joe,


Click here, it will bring to a Tip page authored by one of our best technicians (Robotek). He outlines the procedure for clearing the code on most Kenwood models.

If this gets you going, don't forget to give Robotek a rating Remember: Good things come to those who Rate!!

Thanks in advance!

Last night i got the answer from KENWOOD Support

Press and hold in the SRC button until the unit turns off. While power is OFF,
press and hold FNC and AUTO/TI buttons, and momentarily press the SRC button to
power the unit back on. Continue to hold the other buttons until the unit comes
back on completely.

I did it and it works

Enjoy

with the unit in standby, press the menu key, use the joystick control to choose aux, and set the aux option to "on"...then press menu again to save...when you next switch on the unit, using the SRC button you can cycle through the available options...cd - tuner - aux..etc etc

on your radio there should be 2 sets of outputs high and low you probably have set to low just switch to high and run your speaker wires accordingly to amp

hi it sounds like the cd mech is wurring so power should be ok.
try RESETTING the unit with the reset button, you will need a pen tor a pin to do this in most cases. if still no joy, then double check that you are getthing two pwer feeds to the radio
1 should always be there this is the perminant power feed. and the other4 should only be there when the ignition is on.


let me know how you get on.
