AnalogX VIN View is a free online VIN decoder that allows you to see the information about your vehicle that it contains. VIN View supports decoding of any vehicle identification number that was issued after 1978, which is when ISO 3779 was established to make a uniform way to track vehicles. If you have a car you would like to lookup prior to 1978, I would recommend going to Wikipedia , they have one of the more comprehensive listings of VIN's plus some additional related information.
Operation is simple, enter the VIN number (17 characters, A thru Z and 0 thru 9) and click decode. On the decode page you'll see your VIN again and the position of each character, then on the bottom portion you'll see what position and characters map to what information. As more information becomes available, more details about the vehicle will be displayed (such as the model, engine size, options, etc), please be patient!
VIN's are normally located in several locations on a car, but the most common places are in the door frame of the front doors, on engine itself, around the steering wheel, or on the dash near the window. If you can't find it in any of those areas, then don't ask me because I certainly don't know! Either call the dealership for the car manufacturer and ask them, or search online for a site dedicated to your particular vehicle (or check the above mentioned site).
I'm trying to find information on decoding a new 2019 Equinox LT Redline VIN and have had no luck so far, and the above link appears to be broken or the site is no longer in use.
Does anyone have any information on the VIN for the above Redline, 2GNAXVEX5K6190074?
I'm particularly interested in the NAXVEX portion (model, gvwr/brake/body, chassis, series, restraint, and engine..although I'm quite confident about the engine part...aka the X means 2.0L LTG turbo powerplant)
Beginning with the 2018 model year, a QR code was added to the Certification label (Fig. 3) on all Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC models. The new QR code includes the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), RPO codes and other information that identify the content of the vehicle. In previous model years, the Service Parts Identification (SPID) label, often located in the trunk or glovebox of a vehicle, included this information.
The two-dimensional QR code is a simple barcode that offers the former SPID information in a digital format. The Certification label on all GM models is located on the driver-side B pillar, with the exception of the Corvette where it’s on the driver’s door.
QR Code Reader
Software to read the QR code is commonly available for any Android, iPhone or Windows smartphone. Many basic applications can be downloaded for free. Tested QR code readers that are easy to use include NeoReader by NM LLC, i-nigma by 3GVision, QR Scanner by Honestly App, QR Droid by DroidLa and Bar-Code by PW2. GM does not recommended any particular software. TIP: If the vehicle information needs to be retained for service records or shared with others, most scanner software also has a feature to email the data.
For U.S. dealerships, an OPTICON Bluetooth Companion Scanner (2D Imager), tool number PX-20, is available from www.gmdesolutions.com. The scanner works with a USB cable or is connected via Bluetooth to a laptop.
More RPO Codes Added
Once the QR code is scanned, the vehicle information will appear in the following order: VIN, Model Year, Model, Build Month, Year, Engineering Book, Vehicle Order Number, 3 Digit RPO Codes sorted alphanumerically, and the Paint Code (the paint code also appears in the lower left of the QR code). (Fig. 4)
For example, here’s the information as shown from a scanned QR code:
The commas indicate separation of information; however, the RPOs do not have comma separation. Instead, the RPO codes are separated by a space. The RPO codes also are bolded in the example, but not in the actual information displayed from the QR code.
The commas after the paint code indicate the database of the paint code. There are four databases. The example shows the paint code was retrieved from the first database.
Up to 48 RPO codes may be displayed from the scanned QR code. It does not include all the RPO codes as displayed in the Investigate Vehicle History.
RPO descriptions can be found in the appropriate Service Information under General Information. The following table lists the RPO family descriptions that may be included on the vehicle.
