According to this site, (scroll down to the codes):
9318: Battery voltage low.
262: Missing SCP message. (whatever that means)

Yup.

9318 might be nothing, or it might be caused by your UDP, or something else like a faltering alternator. Are you having any problems with the car? Headlights dim at idle, anything like that?

262, Missing SCP message - SCP is serial communication protocol. This is how the instrument cluster talks to the powertrain computer. 262 means the communication got garbled up at some point, for some reason... again if you aren't having any trouble with the car this one is perfectly OK to just ignore.
