Charger,

The 4th character (gvwr & pass safety / codes) in my VIN is "k," not "a," "d," or "e." Do you know what "k" is?

Thanks for the info.

Should be the same as "E"/ restraint system active w/o side air bags...
At least as of 04/18/05 the last vin decoder we recieved...
the sequence number started with an arbitrary number, no way to track which actual number of your car is...they did it this way to "hide" the daytona vin #'s so they would be impossible to clone...

I also posted this info on the Protection Package thread...

I had one of the guys on the lxforum, (fnkychkn), fax me a break down of the VIN numbers for the Charger.

A few people have said that they have a "K" as the 4th character in their VIN, and according to the VIN code sheet I received:

"K" = Restraint System Advanced Multistage Front Air Bags Sales Code (CG3) With Side Air Bags Sales Code (CGS)

I'm not sure if that means there are air bags in the side bolsters of the Performance seats in the Daytona or not, but I have a Daytona on order and my VIN has a "K" as the 4th character too.

If the DCX Info people still monitor this forum maybe they can shed some light on this.

I'm not sure about the K in the 4th position meaning:

K = Restraint System Advanced Multistages Front Air Bags Sales Code (CG3) With Side Air Bags Sales Code (CGS)


I don't think my Daytona has side airbags (EDIT: And My VIN DOES have a K). I don't believe they are listed on my window sticker (I'm at work so I can't confirm this.) But I do have a Factory build sheet for my VIN that someone on the forum was kind enough to provide me right in front of me. And it says:

CG3 - Advanced Multistage Front Air Bags**

Now the two asterisks is a little suspect, and they don't seem to be referenced anywhere else in the PDF. But I have always thought I didn't have side airbags since I seem to remember on the "build your own" part of the dodge web site that they were part of a safety package that included some special kind of air filtration system, none of which is mentioned in the window sticker or build sheet.

So take that FWIW...

Don't PM me, email ryanjosephevans at gmail dot com. I can get you a cool snapshot of the old Highland Park Information Management (HPIMS) screen, it looks like a build sheet. The difference is when they go down the line I believe they highlight certain codes. Then you can use a code guide, to break the codes. It's easier than the vin. :rocker:

Read it again slowly. Both 5.7L listings are with MDS, the only difference is "hatchback" and "sedan".

And the "k" in the fourth spot could refer to either one. Thats why it has two different sales codes.

ok this is gonna be kinda long but here's a breakdown of the sticker..... it has all the standard equipment PLUS package 28V.... the R/T bagdes Spoiler, perfomance seat w/ suede Daytona edition group, Painted Hemi cover,decals on hood& trunk Load leveling& height control, dual a/c heated seats, pwr seats, pwr adjustable pedals.
Electronic Conv group- I/c with Display, Temp& Compass, V.I. C. traveler/mini computer security alarm, steering wheel controls, Universal garage opener.

Sound group II- 6 Boston acoustics spkrs w/ Sub, 322w Amp, 6CD/full map Navi with GPS/ Sirius And Auto dim Rearview.

the air bags are listed as Advanced Mulitstage Front air bags. no sides SRS at all. no auto headlights, no one touch up Front window. I don't even think it has R&T pkg..... i've tried a couple of the mods on here like ESP disable with the key. Only thing that does is makes everything go off and the airbag light with come on at the same time as the chime.:confused::dunno:

So I have the Sound Group II... where exactly is the sub and amplifier? I bought my car used about 10 days ago and haven't found these 2 items yet. Are they hidden somewhere? Thanks.

I think the amp is hidden under the dash in the '06's and the subs are in the lower area of the doors. But in later years the sub was in the trunk under the rear window shelf.
