Lost ESN number in Kenwood Radio

My Kenwood radio in my car lost its esn number when my battery went dead. Now I can not connect to my Sirius Radio account. I do have the esn number that was set up originally with Sirius for the radio. Sirius says the radio needs to be replaced - my question is - can this be fixed or does the radio have to be replaced? (The Radio is 3.5 years old and out of warranty.)

Radio needs to be reset, I have no code.

Unfortunately KENWOOD codes are not available for free from anywhere on the Internet.

Try your local Radio Decoding Service or Car Radio / Audio Store ...who will connect it to a laptop and read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM)

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.
