Special Windshield Mounting Tips

The vehicles listed below may be equipped with special windshields containing metal oxide in the glass. This can prevent your SunPass transponder from being read. If you are unsure about whether your vehicle has one of these windshields, contact the dealer where you purchased your car. If your transponder is not always being read when driving through SunPass lanes, you must cease using your transponder and call the SunPass Customer Service Center at 1-888-865-5352.
 

A special thanks to Paul Garcia, Vehicle Specialist, PikePass Division of the Oklahoma Transportation Authority, for sharing the following special windshield information.


SunPass transponders will work in the following cars. However, in order to be read the transponder must be mounted in a specific location.
