My only thought is that you unplugged an important pigtail somewhere, check the codes.

The CEL is probably just an o2 sensor code.

Hmm....not sure why the airbag light came on, but all of the other codes are normal. I know some options, such as remote start, will not work when the check engine light is on. This may just be another example of that.

CEL is on since your rear O2 sensors are reading the same as the front sensors and it is telling your computer your cats are not working.

Did the traction control light come on first time you cranked it up or was it after driving it? Possibly a code from exceeding the torque which is stock set at around 300 lbs.

Typically after installing LT's you should have your car tuned to correct these issues. You can have the rear O2's turned off and the torque table doubled.

Airbags is totally different situation all together and runs on a different system entirely.

Good luck

More than likely the steering wheel was turned when the steering rod was disconnected. Probly off by one turn.

Yeah, if you turned the wheel while it was disconnected, you could have broke the clock spring...which would cause the non O2 related codes.

probably broke the steering angle sensor and airbag spiral cable which is the only things i can think of that would cause all those lights. it could get expensive to fix.

As far as the CEL goes you're most likely throwing P0420 and P0430. Those are cat efficiency codes which just need to be tuned out.

And all this happened right away...first turn of the key? Normally the CEL from the 02 sensors take a while of driving before they set off the codes for the bad cats. If they came on right away..I would check to make sure that the sensors are plugged all the way in...and no broken wires. Same with the torque code setting off the traction control. Did you run the car off the ground or dyno it? If rear wheels spin without the fronts then it will set off the traction control service lights. Wow the steering wheel issue sounds like that could be a real pain in the a$$.

@ 2010 SS RS it took about an hour for all this to occur. First it was the CEL and Traction control then airbag service light came on after the car was turned off for about 20 minutes...

Not sure but all the above mentioned possibilities explain the cels but what about tapshift not working, perhaps a brocken wire or something unplugged.

Ahhhhh...good then that is more than likely standard tune related issues on CEL and TC lights. That is a good thing....

I have seen when 'codes' exist, some of the features don't. Like when I had lean codes fafter the Volant air box (btw, got rid of that piece of crap) the remote start would not work with the code error. Could be a similiar situation...

Is this mentioned on your website that this 'may' be required after installing the ARH. :emoticon7:

I dont have ARH LT's but did remember looking at them. No they dont mention tune required but they are listed as Off Road Use which is pretty self explanitory imo. All LT systems require a tune to correct the cat working comparison test between the two O2 sensors.

Just like 2010 SS RS said, all LT systems require a tune to correct the CEL. I would also recommend a tune to get the most out of the headers as well. Feel free to send me a PM if you have any more questions.
