its a number that is unique to your car. it tells you the following:

NATION OF ORIGIN
MANUFACTURER
VEHICLE TYPE
RESTRAINT SYSTEM
DESIGNATION
BODY TYPE
ENGINE
CHECK DIGIT
MODEL YEAR
ASSEMBLY PLANT
SEQUENTIAL NUMBER

the VIN number can be found usually in the following locations:

Firewall of the vehicle
Left hand inner wheel arch
Steering column
Radiator Support Bracket
Dash by windshield
Drivers door or post on passenger side
Guarantee & Maintenance Book *Vehicle documents
Machined Pad on front of engine
Component parts as listed above -eg- engine, frame, etc.

Wow it worked for me:)
So my car is made in
WAYNE, MICHIGAN on the plan
that produced escorts, F-150 and Expeditions. I should visit that place. Maybe my scort will get spiritual charge from visiting it´s place of birth:)))

first I thought I´d throw it a tough one(68 dodge D100 custom swept line)nothing,(as expected)OK I´ll run the scort,well then it butchered the description, it came back as an 89 crown vic with a 4.6l,and yes i double and triple checked the number and then ran it through car fax and it came up right.

yeah it should work for any car carrying the 17 digit VIN. older cars with i think 11 digit VIN won´t work.

no prob. yeah there might be a few problems like we are having but there is nothing i can really do about these problems. i don´t own the database that the info is pulled from. so i can´t make any changes to it. all i do is display what i´m givin.
now of course if i did own the database that the info came from we would have no problems at all, lol.

with all these little errors, i send them an email each time with as much info as i can provide and hopefully they do something about it. but that´s as much as i can do. sorry bout that, im lookin around to see if i can find a better database.

goto the SPONSERS page and it should be the bottom banner. it is autobaza. instead of doing what i was doing, i spoke with him and set up a banner exchange with him. so u can goto that site and check your VIN.
