Default VIN Decoding/Chassis Codes

Original Article Text by: extasy
Updates/Editing/Formatting by: 94accordex

*VIN Decoding*

Note: Codes are still being gathered; so far I only have the USDM models. If anyone has JDM/EDM feel free to add them in.

Almost anything you would want or need to know about your car is contained within the VIN. Here is how a VIN breaks down: all VIN numbers are 17 digits long and will never contain the letter(s) I or O.
Please keep in mind that this is generally related to Honda vehicles but all vehicles after 1981 will use a 17 digit format. I will break it down by each of the 17 digits.

1 = Country of Origin
Options are J = Japan, 1 = U.S., 2 = Canada, 3 = Mexico

2 = Manufacturer
Options are: Honda = H, C, C1, HF, HK (passenger van), HL (multi purpose), H2, H3, S, 7, AE (Acura multi purpose), H or 9

3= Vehicle type
Options are: F= motorcycle, U.S. assembled, G = passenger car, M = passenger car, 1,2 = motorcycle, 3,8 = all terrain vehicle

4-8 = model
** See chassis codes below; information is currently being gathered**

9 = Check Digit
Always 0-9 or the letter X

10 = Year
B = 81 E = 84 H = 87 L = 90 P = 93 T = 96 X = 99 2 = 02
C = 82 F = 85 J = 88 M = 91 R = 94 V = 97 Y = 00 3 = 03
D = 83 G = 86 K = 89 N = 92 S = 95 W = 98 1 = 01

11 = Plant
(L)= East Liberty, OH, (H) = Halston, ON (Canada), (A) = Marysville, OH, (C) = Sayama, Japan,
(S) = Suzuka, Japan, (T) = Tochigi, Japan

12-17 = Serial Number
Unique to each vehicle
