Describe the information found in a VIN.

To determine

The information found in a VIN.

Explanation

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is present on the lower side/corner of the driver side of the windshield. It tells us about the kind of vehicle we are working on. VIN contains a character code of seventeen digits. This code tells about the manufacturers, place of manufacture and resembles the model number. Nowadays, most vehicles contain a scan code which is present just below the VIN.

It tells about the plant where a vehicle has been manufactured and the body style.

For example, 1G1YY36U665112555.

Here, the first character tells about the country where it has been manufactured.

For 1 or 4 − USA

2 − Canada

3- Mexico

J − Japan

K − Korea

S − England

W − Germany

The second character tells about the manufacturer and the tenth character tells about the model year.
