    Not wanting to make the exact location public, but I've seen reference to the EKA code being hidden about the car somewhere and it has been verified by a few others; I've yet to check if it applies to mine.

    Anyone else aware of this?

    Usually on a security card in the owners manual wallet which should have been removed and put in a safe place so you will never be able to find it again.;):D

    That's the one. If you left the code on the back of the visor or even an easy to detach bit of trom I doubt anyone would know what it was for.

    Nah, not the card - physically written on the car, inside the cabin.

    Once I've plucked up the courage to go out and check in this -500 degree weather I'll see if I have it.

    If you need to retrieve your EKA code find someone with a Nanocom or Foxwell or Lynx (or Hawkeye?) diagnostic tester to retrieve it.

    I don’t think you understand the EKA is not etched anywhere but on a card as mentioned by others on here.

    But I think @domino was told otherwise and rather than make it public was checking with trusted members wether it was true.;)

    Some people write it down somewhere discreet as when you need it may be awkward to pop back get your handbook. Even if you got the code you still need to know the method off by heart or a LZ account to ask @DanClarke how
