PIN code

I've been asked by a foreign party where they can get a vehicle PIN code to enter into a scanner on a 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo.

I've not heard of needing a PIN code on a scanner, but I've never used one on a Grand.

The best I can understand, he needs the PIN code to get to the error code.

Can anyone enlighten me?

Maybe the VN code? What foreign party? Did you answer a Craigslist e-mail....

Republic of Benin in W. Africa. No, not Craigslist.

It's possible the VN code, not sure.

Hello, I precise my probleme. I have to change the battery(drum kit) of my vehicule (jeep grand cherokee 2000 laredo )with the key in the contact. After all the electronique circuit is to cancel(deprogram). To re-initialize it, the scanner asks me for the pin code of the car which I do not have.
How may I obtain him(it)?

That sounds weird... If you can afford a WJ in West Africa, I would've thought you could afford maintnence on it.

The translation is not very clear, but the only reason for a PIN code that I know about is when a new ignition key is to be programmed. A Jeep dealership can do this easily, but a lock/key shop would have to have the PIN code.

Pretty sure you have to get it from the dealership. The whole thing seems a bit hinky.
