There are two options, you can go onto e-bay and buy a CD that gives you a code (not sure if that is legal though) or you can go onto a website and pay £5, then when you have filled in your details, it will tell you your code. I have used one before, it worked ok...

Kenwoods don't have codes do they? The one's I've had, the cheaper ones have no code and the really expensive one had a little remote fob with the code in....

Most Kenwoods don't have codes, but some do. I think this one does. Type in Kenwood Radio Codes, or KRC-591 Radio Codes into Google, you will get hundreds of site saying they can decrypt your code. Otherwise, phone up Kenwood, give them the serial number (probably at cost) they will sort you the code...

My 190 came with a 591 (now been replaced with a W707). The 591 has now had the the honour of doubling the value of our S***ki Baleno. Never needed a code, never died of embarrasment. Works fine.
Regards,
Luke.
