mine did it. It was the BCM. Was told the car goes through a few security checks once the key is in. If one fails,the car shuts itself off as a security measure. All controlled in the BCM. They replaced BCM under warranty,no problems since.

I am having the same problem and the dealership is giving me hell about it. I actually emailed them this post and they gave me the run around about not fixing what they can't recreate. It's been there for 17 days now and I'm sure they stopped working on it. They also didn't give me a loaner. I had to borrow and extra family care. The dealership said things like "we don't get paid to drive your car around" and "we don't make money when we can't find the problem." I'm horrified because it's under warranty. I'm at my wits end. I called the regional GM customer service number and she gave me a towing number to have it towed next time this happens. It's so frustrating.


My Camaro didn't produce any codes - if the code isn't there now, I assume it might only produce something when this happens again? Mine is infrequent but has happened 3 times in a year, the last of which was going 75 on the freeway.

What should I do if no codes are produced at the dealership? Side note, after sending them forums like this, they checked the ECM pins (none broken or disturbed).

Help!

I dont know if this is related in any way what so ever...but i noticed something last week when i was working on my car. I have a 2014 with dual mode exhaust and I was installing the M2W switch in the trunk fuse box. I went to start the car to try it out and after about 20-30 seconds the car shut off - on its own. I freaked out wondering why this would happen...I took a look and realized that I had forgot to re-connect the ground wire for the trunk fuse box. I connected it and the check engine light went off after the first drive.

Like i said, I have no idea if this has anything to do with the issues any of you are having but I figured it wouldn't hurt to make sure and double check that all the ground in your car are properly connected!

Unhappy Help

I own a 2013 Camaro I am extreamly concerned over car stalling. Two days ago the car stalled eleven times. I turned the car on and it stalled, put it in drive and did it again, it did it 3 times. I parked the car and tried starting it again and it turned on and as I drove away it stalled while I was driving. I parked the car for a few hours and while I drove it home it stalled 8 more times. I had it towed to the dealer and they called me yesterday and told me they put 30 miles on it and the car did not stall. I am terrified of getting the car back and them tell me that nothing is wrong, I do not feel safe driving it.sad0147:

I don't lose power the radio stays on and the dash stays lit but the engine just dies. I've noticed that it usually happens when the car is cold.

The first time it happened I put the car in reverse to back out and then shifted to drive, the engine died.

Yesterday as I was reversing out of my driveway the engine died. I put the car in neutral and restarted and proceeded to drive back into the driveway the engine died again.

I restarted and called on-star to run a diagnosis they said all was fine.
I had it towed to the dealership but they're saying they won't be able to diagnose it until Monday. I'm a little concerned the dealership won't be able to recreate the issue since it happened first on 12/19, (I thought it was a fluke so I didn't take it to the dealership) and then didn't happen again until yesterday12/30.

Very concerned that this may happen when I'm on the free-way. Wondering if anyone has had similar experiences and if the dealer was able to resolve it? I took pictures and video when it happened yesterday. I can post if anyone is interested.
Corine,

Let the dealership take a look at it. Your black box should record everything that happens and they'll see it when they due a diagnostic. There's no way they can't see what's happening.

If it's manual then this is almost surely user error...

No reason for an automatic to stall, that's a bigger issue.

Stalls while driving

My camaro has an automatic transmission when it stalls the radio also stays on. The dealership kept it for days and was unable to duplicate the symptom and I was asked to pic it up with no explanation to what is wrong with it. I am terrified of it happening again and not feeling safe driving it.

2010 2LT M6... Having the same issues... But here's a little background and I already have a case open with GM...

Well, my cars doing the same thing...

1st the dealer replaced the ecu/ecm...I'm thinking this was just a quick fix or easy way out.
2nd from them choosing this route my engine over heats due to coolant not getting into the pocket correctly and blew two head gaskets internals took a crap and had shavings in the oil pan... Long story short they replaced the engine with a new long block...with this choice from them I agreed of course, but when I get my car back read over the service papers I notice they reused some parts, intake manifold injectors and some others not listed or even told to me...
At first I thought nothing of it cars running fine, its been only two days mind you, from getting the car back from the dealer after getting the new engine in, and I'm going 45mph on a residential street... And low and behold engine takes a poo on me, lights still on inside radio and all I notice the engine light....I call the dealer immediately...

Cars in the shop now, they data logged and saw a few codes, they try a reflash, see the same codes, I'm guessing something dealing with the injectors because that's what their changing now...


But my deal is just this... If they were to truly find the root cause of the (electrical/wiring/technical side of things, they wouldn't of replaced the ECU, the engine would not have blew up, and it wouldn't be in the shop now...

I mean really...reusing the wiring and injectors from what was ready on the car, should be a no brainer, theres an electrical malfunction or something...its happening all across the models, automatic and manuals...

If its a recall just claim it, make it easier on everyone, gm/Chevy and the customers, I mean save lives for this could be very dangerous...

Now it me since why you see so many totaled camaros...

Not because of the drivers they're modifications or anything... Just simply a recall not being address...

I have a 20111 Camaro RS as well. about 6 weeks ago car suddenly shut off when I put into drive, started right back up and all was fine. couple weeks later happened again, took about 3-4 start ups/retries before I could go into drive without car shutting down. during this time my average gas mileage went from 18.2 down to 15.8.
Then my check engine light came on........car driving fine
Used at home code checker and 6 misfire codes came up
Yesterday driving about 20-30 mph and car totally shut down, after I was safely off road, I attempted to start again and it started right back up- took it home and now scared to drive.
thought it could have been the recall on the ignition but jostled my keys A LOT and car did not turn off (plus that wouldn't throw a code or 6)
Thinking fuel pump........bad gas (perhaps sand that remained in tank all this time???)
Thoughts?

Just heard back from dealership. Timing chain is shot but luckily covered under power train warranty but also at least two fuel injectors need replaced, possibly 4. #4 & 6 are definitely bad but #3 &5 possibly bad. Showing misfire but not throwing code. mechanic not sure if they are going bad or just showing misfire because of timing chain issue
QUESTION: What would make a car with only 54K miles have bad fuel injectors? Would that have been caused by the timing chain? Talking with people who say there is NO way I should need fuel injectors with 54K miles! HELP!

Do you lose power, or is it just the engine?

You could have a worn out ignition. Or a bad fuel pump. The security features may even be messing with it.

sometimes the most likely is the fuel pump also, which doesn't set a code when it fails. I have had two other vehicles, most recently a 2003 Ranger that did the same thing, randomly dying, but would start back up until eventually it stayed dead. The new fuel pump solved the problem.

Thanks! car in shop now, getting the two fuel injectors changed and hoping the other two will be fine and only misfiring because of timing chain

This just happened to me in my 2013 Camaro SS. I've owned the car (bought used) for 10 months, and this is the first problem I've had. I turned right, accelerating through the turn, and the engine just shut off. I was talking on the Bluetooth and that stayed on, but all gauges and dashboard lights were gone. I coasted to a stop, put it in park, turned the key off, and it started right back up on the first try. Drove less than five blocks home and put it in the garage with no issues. I even restarted it in the garage as a test, and it fired right up. After reading the entire string here, I'm guessing this will happen again. Grrrrr. Forgot to mention - the only modification I've made is a professionally-installed Flowmaster 40 Series on both sides. Just the mufflers, not a full Catback. Haven't noticed any change in idle sound, knocking, or anything else since installation a week and a half ago.

I would highly suggest contacting GM for every major issue...
And if you've had your last straw...
I would contact a lawyer...

Ok I'm dealing with the same issues, just got my Camaro on 6/30. On 7/2 while driving on the interstate the cars engine loses power and eventually stalled out, luckily I was able to get to the shoulder before it stalled. I started the car up and it drove like normal for MOST of the day, (it did it again that evening) check engine light was on from 1st occurrence. Again started back drove home fine. Drove by advance auto just to check the codes, ended up being a total of 19 codes (most repeating) but 6 were misfires in all 6 cylinders. Took it to dealership on 7/3. They said they updated the ECM/ECU and cleared the codes. They said they couldn't recreate the issue after the update. Drove it straight home drove and acted fine. Now today 7/4 does it again this time in the middle of a intersection. Only difference this time was it was a struggle to get it restarted & no CEL was triggered. .of course the dealership is closed on Sunday and I'll drop it off Monday morning, but now I'm no longer feeling safe behind the wheel.

my 2015 engine shut off

I purchased a brand new Camaro 1LT on 7/20 an don 7/23, not even three days later, the car engine shut off WHILE I was driving the vehicle. I was able to quickly pull to the side of the road, take the key out and restart the car. I brought it to dealer's service department immediately and they have had the car since then and haven't not found anything wrong with it, they have not been able to recreate the problem. Wth could be wrong with it?

Are there any laws that protect me as the buyer to either return the car within a certain period of time after purchase, or swap it for another car of the same model, etc. since the car is having issues, brand new, and they can't figure out what is wrong with it?

My car first started then shut down, I started it several more time and it did same thing. Then it stayed running and was ok. Then this morning when I started it to pull out of garage it did same thing. Then after starting it several times it stayed running but guages, tach, spedomiter not working, several cel's. Thursday the dealership says then can look at it. Hopefullyit will stay running long enough to drive the 25 miles to dealership.
