Peculiarity on the Jeep Cherokee VIN, model year 1989, European version

Exception!!!

The VIN behind the windscreen on the Jeep Cherokee, MY 1989, differs from the VIN on the type plate (identification plate) located on the right inner wing, or on the front right of the longeron, and from the VIN given in the vehicle documents.

Example: VIN in the vehicle documents, type plate etc. 1JEMT785EKT435037

VIN behind the windscreen 1J4FJ78L1KL435037.

The reason for this is that in 1989, Jeep was taken over by the Chrysler Corporation. Therefore, exclusively for MY 1989, and only for the Jeep Cherokee, there was an internal works production number (behind the windscreen) and a VIN.

The vehicle documents refer especially to this under number 33, “Remarks”.

Type Plate:

Only Chrysler vehicles destined for the European market have type plates affixed to them.
Chrysler auto type plates are 89 mm long and 44 mm wide and are affixed to vehicles before painting.
This means that the type plate, the screws and the rivets are painted in the colour of the vehicle itself.

How the type plates are fixed Chrysler Auto :

Voyager screwed on, but riveted on newer models
Grand Cherokee (Model ZJ)2 screwed
Grand Cherokee (Model Z)2 riveted
Cherokee riveted
Wrangler (Model YJ) screwed or riveted
Wrangler (Model TJ) screwed

The Grand Cherokee Model ZJ was produced up to and including model year 1995.
The Z model was manufactured from MY 1996.
Characteristics of the Type Plates: magnetic
Letter heights: about 4,5 mm.
The maximum permissible weight for the Jeep Wrangler (Model YJ) is visibly crossed out at the manufacturing plant where it is produced.
To do this it is necessary to remove the type plate.
The painted rivets are removed in this process.
New, unpainted rivets are used to affix the corrected type plate back onto the vehicle.
Furthermore, it is possible that the type plate on older versions of the Jeep Wrangler (YJ) is partially covered by a plastic covering which has been glued on in such a way that only the VIN and the maximum permissible weight can be seen.
Metal type plates were installed up to model year 2000; subsequently type stickers have been used.

Type stickers 

Both black type stickers with white text and white stickers with black text are used.The information on the black type stickers is written on using a laser engraving process and can therefore be felt.
The stickers have DAIMLER CHRYSLER CORP: written on them.
Starting in MY 2006 these stickers were given additional safety features, namely:Break grain: Parallel running stairs-shaped curved ones an inbuilt break-off grain consisting of : a series of parallel stepped curved lines (see the images below in Section 2.2)
An infinitely repeating sequence of words: „Chrysler auto Dodge Jeep“, over several lines, visible in slanting light (see the images below in Section 2.2).

N.B.:

Little notice is taken of the words “Chrysler Dodge Jeep” when putting information on the type plates, as they can only be seen in slanting light.
It may happen therefore, that these can be upside down in relation to the information applied with the laser engraving process.

type plates chrysler

Starting 18 April, 2007, from VIN 7Y567459, white type stickers have been used in the Graz plant for the WH, LE and RG models.
In some vehicles made in the U.S.A., Mexico and Canada, white type stickers have already been in use since January 2006. Attention: Use depends on manufacturing plant.

The white type stickers have: „DAIMLER CHRYSLER CORPORATION“ written on them and no special security features.

DAIMLER CHRYSLER CORPORATION plate

After him Elimination of Daimler from the Cooperation with Chrysler auto become from MY 2008 new type glues right:

DAIMLER CHRYSLER CORPORATION plate DAIMLER CHRYSLER CORPORATION plate

Since June 2009, type stickers on which „Chrysler Group LLC“ is written have been used.

As the white stickers used before, these stickers do not have any special security features, either.

The new type sticker on the Chrysler Crossfire is located on the B-pillar on the front passenger’s side. The text is put on by laser (like Mercedes). It can be felt, and the word ‘Chrysler’ and the Chrysler emblem are visible in slanting light.
The date of manufacture (Date of MFR) of the vehicle is on the left of the type sticker, in, for example, the following format: 12/03 (December 2003), and beneath this entry there is the entry MDH (Month – Date- Hour) e.g.: 121914 (December, 19th day, 14th hour).
