Default new kenwood head unit ,sirius xm antenna problem

i nstalled a new double din kenwood touchscreen on my truck yesterday ( i had the basic radio with single cd player in it) the plug on the sattilite antenna will not work with the new radio. the new radio has a 13 pin one and the old uses what i believe they call a fakra plug (little tiny round thing) anyways is there an adaptor or anything that you know of to make this work or will i have to switch out my sirius antenna? i know lots of you switch out your hear units for aftermarket so what did you do? thanks

its the kenwood ddx272 ....heres what i wound up doing........i had to purchase the sirius sxv 300 vehicle tuner, its basially a magnetic antenna and the black box with the plug thatll fit into the aftermarket radios. i took the plastic end piece off of the antenna wire thats in the truck from the oem radio itll go into the black box of the svx 300 tuner however the fit isnt tight so it has to be secured with zipties and tape as a temporary fix...thanks for the link.... ill look into that after vacation and maybe even swing by the local stereo shop here to get a fitting
