Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Decoder: VINPro
Scan the VIN from the B-Pillar and VINPro will show the year, make, model, engine, drive train information and most importantly if your vehicle has open recalls for light duty cars and trucks which need to be repaired. We believe it is critical that motorists know if they have recalls, so we are providing this service for personal use for free. If you use this and find you have an open recall, PLEASE take your vehicle to your dealer and they will fix it for free. It could save your life! Please tell everyone you know!
VINPro allows you to scan two VINs per phone/tablet; you can scan these two VINs indefinitely to check for recalls. If you want to check more than two vehicles, you can optionally purchase a license for VINPro to scan unlimited VINs for $1.49 per month or for $9.99 per year.
Details of included data are below, but just download it and try it (it's free) to see what is returned. PLEASE check to see if your vehicle has open recalls! Included data:
Vehicle Info - Year, make, model, body style, curb weight, gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), fuel type, two wheel drive or all wheel drive, engine displacement, number of cylinders, transmission type.
Recalls - Up to date open recall data for light duty cars and trucks (Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehicles are currently unavailable). This information is specific to the vehicle VIN entered, not generic "you may have these recalls" like some other products. If your manufacturer has issued a recall and it has yet to be performed on your vehicle this will tell you! Take your vehicle to the dealer and get the recalled issue fixed.
Information for testing on a dynamo-meter (used by repair shops and some emissions testing shops) - Track Road Load Horsepower (TRLHP), test power and vehicle weights (ETW) for testing the vehicle on a dynamo-meter with the US EPA IM240 and ASM tests, drive axle weight, power setting for 8, 12 and 20 dynamo-meter rolls, tire losses when tested on a dynamo-meter.
Diagnostic Link Connector (DLC) info - Ever have your check engine light come on? Want to plug in a scan tool to it to find out what is wrong? We show you a picture and/or diagram of where the connector is under the dash, behind the ashtray, etc. so you can easily find it! (By the way - if you do want to "pull your codes" we highly recommend the ScanTool.Net LX Scan Tool by the way, inexpensive and works great with your phone!).
OBD Information - For the techies out there, we provide the electronic communication protocol the vehicle uses to "talk" to scan tools, and which readiness monitors (systems) your vehicle supports.
