On the dash display between the trip and the odometer, it dispalys the number 46. Does anybody know what this is? Is was also displaying the number 25 but that went away. BTW it's a 1994 STS. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

export code cluster mode

I think his cluster is in 'export' mode. It will display a code (46 in this case) in the script area.

All the export diagnostic booklets were...well...exported. The export code info is not in the factory service manual. It would be possible to de-program the export mode. Then the cluster would behave like any other US cluster.

It's a Canadian car. Would this be the cause the "export mode" you're speaking of?

I think so

I saw you are in Canada. There is a 'french/canadian' export mode in the cluster/IPC. Does the IPC display in french?

Maybe you know how to enter the IPC diagnostic mode. Anyways heres how to do it-

Key on.
Press and hold the 'red' warmer and the hvac 'off' for about 5 seconds. The IPC should enter the diagnostic mode.

At the end of the test. The IPC should display 'PCM?.' It is asking if you want to go into the PCM diagnostics. You dont.

At this point you use the fan speed switch as a yes/no switch. Up is 'yes' and down is 'no.'

Press the fan speed 'no' until you see 'IPC?', then press 'yes'.

Press 'no' until you see 'IPC overrides?' Then press 'yes' . It will then display a ISxx number. Press the 'no' until you see 'IS08' . ISO8 is what determines the export function of the IPC.

Here are the listed values for IS08. You would add these #s to get the display you want-

Canada/french +128
Euro export +64
Japan +32
Saudia +16
RSS +8
HVAC afterblow +4
Disabalbe prem fuel +2
Low fuel warn +1

Being your car is a STS Canada export that should have the value of IS08 at '136'. If you also use the hvac afterblow it would be '140.'

To bring the IPC back to US mode. You would subtract 128 from the value stored in IS08. To do this you use the warmer/colder buttons to adjust IS08 (not the fan this time).

The normal N.A. USA IPC setting is '008.'

After you adjust IS08. Press and hold the 'econ' and 'front defrost' for 4 seconds. The display will blank out for a second and then come back displaying the new IS08 stored value. At this point either press AUTO to exit or simply turn the car off. When you turn the car back on the cluster should be in US mode.

Now that the cluster is in US mode you can check for the codes that are coming up. Again press and hold the red warmer button and the off button for about 6 seconds. The cluster again should go into diagnostic mode and this time should display the codes in the script area. You should see a display like POxx or PO36 for example. With these US codes we can tell whats going on.
