Multiple Error Codes - Multiple error codes will be returned when you decode a VIN, if the VIN has multiple errors and more than one error code is needed to represent the errors.
Error Code 1 for Off-Road Vehicles - If the body class of the VIN indicates an off-road vehicle, the text for Error Code 1 (Check Digit (9th position) does not calculate properly) will be displayed with an additional NOTE, that says, "Disregard if this is an off-road vehicle PIN that has been decoded as check digit calculation may not be accurate."
New Error Code 12 - Model year entered does not match the model year based on the 10th character in VIN. This error is triggered when the Model Year entered does not match with the two possible model years defined by the 10th position of the VIN.
