Where can I find my Ford's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)? 

You can typically find your VIN in these locations:

  • Driver's side doorjamb    
  • Windshield (lower, driver's side corner)
  • Vehicle documentation (registration, insurance policy, lease, promissory note)

Other locations may include your vehicle's SYNC® 3 screen, the FordPass™** App, or your Ford Account.

  • SYNC 3 screen (if equipped)
    1. Press Settings.
    2. Press General.
    3. Select About SYNC.
  • FordPass App
    1. Login to the FordPass App.
    2. Select a vehicle.
    3. Press Vehicle Details.

  • The VIN location for 1967 and older vehicles varies by model. You may find the VIN on the driver's side doorjamb, inside the glove compartment, on the right-hand dash panel, or the top left-hand side of the frame between the steering gearbox and firewall. 
  • The letters I, O, and Q are not included in a VIN to avoid confusion with the numbers 1 (One) and 0 (Zero).
