Check if the battery is working fine. You may have airbag self check errors when the battery is unable to supply adequate current.

Mods: can you please move this post to an appropriate thread.

Hi wildon,

Is there some way to also know the VIN details (date of manufacture) of high end bikes like the Bajaj Kawasaki Ninja 650 that Bajaj is selling in India?

Hi Wildon,

Today I got the VIN for my Polo (WVWH12607DT013870). I did check the same from site mentioned on this thread quite some time back (http://www.vagauto.com/mainclass.php) and got the Prod date as 04.09.2012.
However if I decode using the method shown in the earlier posts, the month of production turns out to be Aug 2012. Would request if you could clear this anomaly.
I would be really happy if you could also provide with the detailed report of my polo.

Cheers,
Rahul

Wildon, how do you get the model year? How is this different from the year of manufacture?

Hi Wildon, BHPians !

Please help me decode the folowing VIN for a Fiat Punto. MCA118C5E07043595HLZ

I can understand that this is a August'12 manufactured car. Dealer says that this is in transit and they have not received it yet. Does fiat keep cars for so long at their factory yards? Is there a a risk of a unit with complaints that has beed returned and repaired? Is this normal? Is it possible to answer these questions in any way by decoding the VIN

Thanks in advance !!
