Interesting, see the below. Something you did with the HID's is causing the issue, are they aftermarket HID's?

LMAO HIDs will not give you a check engine light. And since you think they would...you should probably stop modding now hahaha

Go see your dealership, you'll find everything out there.

Actaully there have been a couple of people that reported issues in the past with aftermarket HID's, so it's not entierly out of the question. It has to do with a votage change (drop or something like that), or burnt wire, I cannot remember exactly.

These ECM's are very finicky.

Such "great" advice from some posters. Precisely why I generally stick to the technical pages.

Okay... once again, there is no such thing as a Camaro "RS". "RS" is a trim package. If you want help with mechanical/engine-related issues, you'll have to state what sub-model you have (LS, LT, SS, ZL1, etc.). Save a little time and put it in your signature. Thanks.

Everybody on this forum knows when someone says an RS they are referring to a V6. Yes my 2011 was a 1 LT but on the back where my 2013 say SS it said RS. Its understood by everyone so you don't have to relay your message everytime someone post. Everybody here including you knew what he was talking about!

Jeza,

I had aftermarket hids on my last car, BMW M3, and they drew a code. There is an adapter they have to eliminate the codes. But, not sure if it will work with a newer cars. My BMW was a 97. It is possible and most likely the Hids are the cause.

Same thing happened to me with my camaro. I went to the dealer and they told me that its the hids. Thing is i want to keep them so i wired them differently and i still got the same problem, i guess they're going to have to come off. anyways, what ever happened to your car? did you fix it??
