INSTRUMENT CLUSTER Failure Message Chart

Recommended Posts

I was reading in the articles about testing the instrument cluster and it says to refer to the Failure Message Chart but there isnt a chart anywhere I could find over there. Anyways I searched the internet and I found several charts but none of the codes on these charts were similar to what I showed. When I turn my key on I get "5 127" ". 285" "C 447" These numbers cycle through 4 times at approximately 3 seconds intervals each and then ends with "5 127" cycling a fifth time before it goes back to my mileage. The entire time these numbers are cycling through my gauges are moving through their test points, from what I read each one is stoping in the correct location. I am not getting any C codes and I'm not getting a "C00 00" indicating there are no issues. I looked in the 2006 Factory Service manual and I didnt see a chart in their either, mostly it said to connect a scan tool to find any faults. So my question is are these codes I'm getting an indication of faults and if so what faults? Also does anyone know where I can find the Fault Chart?

Ok fixed my sig, yeah I downloaded the 06 FSM and I didnt see a chart in there. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong spot, I was looking under section 8j - INSTRUMENT CLUSTER. It does say how to do the test but then goes on to say that if you recieve any codes to connect a scan tool. I was hoping someone here could give me some indication as to what this meant before I went to the stealership

Heres a video so you can see what I'm talking about
