Trouble Finding My VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

Your VIN has 17 alphanumeric characters. You can find it on:

  • The driver’s side of the dashboard where the dashboard meets the windshield (it’s best viewed from outside the vehicle)
  • The driver’s door frame — open the driver’s door and find the VIN sticker
  • Your vehicle’s registration or insurance card
  • Your monthly diagnostics report email

Incorrect vehicle showing 

If any vehicles associated with your email address aren’t yours, please click on the Remove vehicle link next to it and then select the reason.


Trouble With the System Not Recognizing My VIN

If your vehicle has an active OnStar® and Connected Services plan, you'll need to call 1-888-466-7827 to add or remove it from My Account. If your vehicle does not have an active plan, you can add or remove it online through My Account.

1. Go to Experience.gm.ca.

2. Select the account icon.

Account icon.

3. Sign in to My Account.

4. Select the account icon. The account panel will display.

Account icon.

5. Select Manage Vehicles.
6. Select the Add Vehicle button.
7. Enter your vehicle’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

If the system doesn’t recognize your VIN, try reentering it — it must match exactly. If your VIN is still not recognized, call 1-866-694-6546 for assistance.

The system may not recognize your VIN if your vehicle is a new purchase. Sometimes it takes a while for the VIN to appear in GM systems. If you have a new purchase and you are sure that you entered the VIN correctly — yet the system still does not recognize your VIN — register your vehicle by Year, Make and Model.

On the Manage Vehicles page (see above for navigation instructions):

1. Select the Add Vehicle button, then register by Year, Make and Model from the bottom of the page. Click Save.
2. Return to the Edit Vehicle Information page and enter your VIN, then click Save and Finish. Once your vehicle is in the GM system, information specific to your vehicle will be displayed.
