That error message comes from the VIN validation step. It means one or more characters in the VIN are not valid.

Please post the VIN here, or send me a PM with the VIN, that you are trying to enter in the decoder. Thanks.

Some minor changes made to the buck tag decoder...

First was fixing the tab order on the input page. The tab key will now not go to to the DECODE button until the end.

Second was requiring Javascript to be enabled in your browser. This was done for four reasons:
  1. making sure all of the required fields are filled in/selected
  2. allowing only numbers to be entered in certain fields
  3. codes that are repeated on buck tags (1988+ tags: last six of VIN and paint) are automatically filled in the second field when it is entered into the first field
  4. (furture) being able to validate the form
The decoder will check if Javascript is enabled in your browser, and will display an error messaged if it is not enabled.

Third change was a 'Decode another buck tag' button added to the top of the output page.

That is correct. Whether a VIN is an SSP or not cannot be determined by a VIN decoder. That kind of info has to be dug out of Ford's production database, which VIN decoders do not do.

Now I could make the decoder return that a VIN is an SSP, IF it is a known SSP. It will take a little extra coding but it's definitely doable.

Updated buck tag decoder to indicate 'special paint color' when no paint code is selected.

Later I will update the buck tag decoder for 1982 to only work for the VINs on 1982 VIN Project page.

I have modified the VIN decoder to do just this. I am done with model years 1982-85. If it says in the VIN Project that is or isn't an SSP, or it's an unknown agency, or has the unit number, etc., the VIN decoder will say something very similar if not the same thing. Once I get all years done, and make sure there are no bugs, I will get with Mike to upload the code to the site here: http://specialservicemustang.net/SSPVINDecoder

Awesome, Mick. Thanks for all of your hard work on this and the VIN project as well.

All years done.

http://foxchassis.com/decoders/vin/ssp/

That is a mirror of the decoder on this site except it will now also indicate known info. For example, for 1982 CHP VIN 1FABP10F7CF213064 it will say Confirmed as: California Highway Patrol, Unit #E870204 and then do the normal VIN decoding.

I can remove "Confirmed as", or put "SSP" after the agency, etc. Just let me know.

Throw some VINs at it and see if anything funky gets returned. When we're satisfied that it works as intended I give the changed modules to Mike for this site.
