I forget the channel number, just call Sirius XM and they will give you the channel number where you can find your esn.

Isn't it written on the Sirius radio case.
In the trunk, under the left side carpet, silver case, written on the top.

In the past when setting up sat, it was directly on the screen if the service was not activated, so its strange that it was not readily found. However, if you bring up the sat radio screen and go to the options menu where it says Details(also where you can choose eq), it can be found there...good luck

you are kidding right? If you bought the car from them I would give them hell. I think you can go to channel 0 and it's there...

im trying to look online and can't find any info. Crazy. There should be a channel you can go to that tells you that number. But I can't find it on mine either. I know when mine was not connected it just showed the number automatically for me.
