First, you will need the farm service account password. You can reset it in Central Administration Security Managed Accounts. Once done you can restart the sync service with that password.
You should also use a different (lesser privileged) account for the sync connection. Create the connection and kick off the synchronization according to Spence's post here: http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx Don't skip any steps.
