SST...

First, here is a B&W pic of the SST that my cousin took yesterday morning on his phone at the shop before we took it out. Pretty neat shot. Then we took it out for a ride to check all systems. Everything was working well. Did a few 7 psi quick blasts (with tranny in auto mode) to check tranny function and temps. Everything good so far. (Will post videos when I get home along with the AMS-1000 tutorial). Then we enabled the AMS-1000 for a 14 psi boost run. The instant we hit it, the damn BCM computer reset. So to be safe we drove it back to the shop. The problem is once we shut the car off, it went into a "Transport Mode On" function and now the car is locked from doing anything. We looked online and there are forums that say "hold the ignition key in the start position for 15 seconds and then the Transport Mode Off will come on". We tried tons of combinations but cannot get this to occur. If there is anyone you know that can get this shutoff please PM me.

This is quite frustrating because the SST runs perfect mechanically, but then the BCM has so much interwoven security logic to make the car 'secure' it kills it. (e.g. Transport Mode, Security Mode) Think if you were at Camaro5 Fest and your car ran perfect but then your key fob went dead and you could not start and drive your car at the event. That is the frustration I am talking about.

So going forward, I am going to hold the transport pickup for one week. If they cannot get the BCM reset I am going to ship it home anyway and figure it out with a fresh outlook.

Any thoughts, comments or suggestions from the Camaro 5 community at this point would be helpful.

Thank You,
Bruce

Bruce,

How is the BCM tied to the trans? Is it going into limp mode?

I know you were having trouble getting the computer to recognize the 4L80. Could that still be causing problems?

Geez.

I so wish I could help some way. That sucks beyond suck. I still don't understand what the BCM even is fully. I know what it stands for but it's just way over my head.

I was going to PM you a picture of Dr. Frankenstein holding some schematics as 'help' but it's not even funny anymore.

Man I feel your pain. And I'm sure you've heard it a million times but, hang in there. When it's done you'll be so glad.

Hey Russ, the 4L85E along with the engine is isolated when running. In other words, we don't use nor need the BCM for either of those. The SST runs those from independent computers. The rub with the BCM is that is shuts off the charging system, starter and the factory gauges (I don't really need the gauges, but definitely need the starter and alternator to work)

The frustration to me personally is that this is a BCM logic issue. Its only function now hinders normal operations of the car because of the robust security logic. (Kudos to GM for making your Camaro theft proof and smart !) If I could just remove the BCM I would in a heartbeat, but its tentacle reach throughout the car.

Did Owen have to do something special with your 4L80E to get around a limp mode?

Thanks,
Bruce

Have you tried talking to GTPprix?
It may be a long shot but if anyone knows about the BCM it's him.

Thanks Randy. Like I said, the frustrating part is that the SST doesn't really need the BCM, but...I really want to keep it and the factory gauges working.

Five Guys may be tough for that date, but I will have the car in Florida in April. I have drawn a line in the sand for myself on that one.

I don't know much, but I know the computer sees the car as a manual now.

The BCM probably sequences the door glass when closing along with all the other stuff it does, so it would be a PITA to eliminate.

Any dealerships you can call?

Are there any transport drivers on C5? They may know.

This from another site, I assume you tried it even though it's for another make?
Quote:
Disabling Transport Mode

1.Place the ignition OFF.

2.Verify the battery is fully charged.

3.Place the ignition ON.

4.NOTE: Steps 4 and 5 must be carried out within 10 seconds.

Press and release the brake pedal 5 times.

5.Press and release the hazard switch 4 times (on, off, on, off).

Really? Really,,,, So now the &^%$#%$^%&^%$% theft proof system won't let the OWNER drive the car. You can bet that somebody at GM knows how to make that thing shut up and get out of your way. Makes me miss the old days when we just hid a kill switch somewhere in the car. I am way out of my league here, but I keep thinking it might be easier to find and eliminate the signal to the BCM than to change the BCM programing. Something in shutting it off signaled the BCM find that bug and swat it.
