Either look on your sirius tuner, or if you go go into your deck's main menu, it will probably say it there

Kenwood car stereo manual

Crutchfield has the manual on the product page in the Details tab: . Scroll down to the What's in the box section on the right. The direct link to the manual is .

If you mean the Sirius XM Radio ID to associate the receiver with the Sirius Connect Vehicle Tuner, when in the Sirius XM mode, tune the unit to Channel 0 .

I hope this helps.

How do I get the Sirius ID number to display on my Jensen MSR4115G? Have tried following manual but cannot get it to work.

Go back to where the direct tune display reads 000 and do not touch any buttons. After approximately 5 seconds the display will read ESN followed by a 4 digit number. Be patient it may take a few seconds to display. Write down the four digits then press the Disp button. The last 8 digits of the number will be displayed. You should have 12 digits total not counting ESN. I have the same model Jensen and this worked for me. The Sirius tech line did not have the correct process for this model. Good luck!

My Sirius radio, factory installed in a 2008 VW R32, won't activate, even after a "soft boot". Sirius mentioned having the dealer do a "hard boot". What is that?

I hope this post finds everyone well who is having difficulties with Sirius Radio's trouble shooting advice to reactivate service. I tried to reactivated my service and had experienced all the problems that everyone has had on these forums. This is what works. It took me a lot of phone calls and I want to get the word out to everyone (regardless of Make, Model or Year of Vehicle)

First, a soft reboot does nothing and there is no such things as 'reseting' the electric system in your car. Second, there is no such thing as a 'hard' reboot to your sirius radio. All a soft reboot will get you is cold legs when you have to hold your car door open for 30 seconds in the middle of winter. All a hard reboot will do is cost you a lot of hard earned money at the dealership. Best case scenario is that your dealer replaces your entire radio and charges you $500+.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: Call Sirius Customer Service and ask for Technical Support. Explain to them you are having difficulty obtaining an activation signal. The technical support technician did the following (and it was the most intelligent thing I heard from Sirius)

1. Go turn on your Sirius Radio and tune to Channel 184.

2. The technician put a "dummy" ESN in on my account, refreshed and then re-entered my original ESN back into my account and then re-sent the activation signal. **NOTE** Make sure you write down your original ESN number before you ask to have them do step #2....there is no way for them to recover your original ESN if they put in the 'dummy' ESN and refresh.

3. Within 10 seconds of putting doing step #2, my Sirius Radio said, "Updating Channels" and worked great.

Takeaway from My Experience: I believe that once you let your Sirius Radio Service relapse and/or do not renew your subscription, a signal/frequency is sent to your radio to block service or reactivate your service. The problem must be an internal issue on Sirius where the only fix to stop this signal is to completely clear (or zero) out your original ESN, enter a dummy ESN, refresh and then re-enter your original ESN and then send the activation signal.

I hope this helps everyone.

Yes, you will need a sirius tuner for the kenwood..Transfering the service is easy, just contact sirius, and give them the new radio ID, and the account will be switched instantly.

SAT Radio installation

What you need is the SCC1 (Sirius tuner) and the KCA-SR50 (Kenwood adapter). The ESN number can be found on bottom of SCC1 before you install it.
