Dash self actuator test

I was just reading the thread about the 4x4 light not coming on the dash, and about the self diagnostic actuator test (push and hold trip reset and turn the key to on position). Turns out the light does work on mine, so it's the switch.

Anyway - before the gauges and lights all did their dance, 2 things popped up on the display.

The first said "5 of 5.1", then the next thing to pop up was the number 308292.

I have spent half an hour searching - but I can't find anywhere to say what these numbers mean.

Please help!

According to the FSM, the "5 of 5.1" has to do with software level. The second number "308292" are the last 6 digits of your VIN number.

Quote:
(1) Begin the test with the ignition switch in the Off position.
(2) Depress the odometer/trip odometer switch but- ton.

(3) While still holding the odometer/trip odometer switch button depressed, turn the ignition switch to the On position, but do not start the engine.
(4) Release the odometer/trip odometer switch but- ton.
(5) The instrument cluster will automatically begin the actuator test sequence, as follows:
(a) The cluster will generate a single chime tone to confirm the functionality of the chime tone gen- erator and the chime control circuitry.
(b) The cluster will scroll the number “8” across the odometer/trip odometer VFD to confirm the functionality of all VFD segments and their control circuitry.
(c) The cluster will illuminate the decimal point in the odometer/trip odometer VFD to confirm the functionality of this VFD segment and its control circuitry.
(d) The cluster will display the EMIC software level in the odometer/trip odometer VFD (example: “SOF 8.9”).
(e) The cluster will display the last six digits (sequence number) of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) in the odometer/trip odometer VFD.

(f) If any faults have been set by the cluster, the cluster will display the fault information in the odometer/trip odometer VFD INSTRUMENT CLUSTER FAILURE MESSAGE . If no faults have been set, the cluster will scroll “no FAULtS” across the odometer/trip odometer VFD.
