Type 43

So in my new vehicle, there is this thing on the dashboard that says "Type 43".  It had me puzzled for a good week and a half before I decided to do some internet research on it.  The way that the "Type 43" is displayed it looks like it is a error message or some kind of display telling you to check something.  I did look through my jeep manual, but it mentioned nothing of the sort.  I also consulted with other people as to what this could mean, but nobody had any good ideas. Of course my brother and I made our own guesses: 

  • You have to be in the car 43 minutes before the airbags work
  • The car will self destruct in 43 minutes
  • You have to be at least 43 years old to survive a car crash.
  • Etc, Etc, Etc

But in actuallity it is the name of the dashboard panel components?  How stupid.  Why not just put "Dashboard Type 43" or something like that?  I thought something was wrong with my car right from the dealership.  I had my bitch all charging up and it was ready to go apeshit on someone.

Anyway, here is the article in case you wanted to read it: It is the holy grail of Type 43 information.
