Take it to the local dealer you plan on servicing it.
Good time to introduce yourself and explain why you didn't buy from them but you do want service from them.

Suspension

Maybe something came lose when takin off straps. You'll find out sone as they hook it up. I know they didn't keep the spring spacers but if they do tell you it was the ride hight senor you might want too get a hold of some for the next time you have to haul it. No matter what it is it will be fix and away you go in that awsome ZL1. Keep in mind the factory can't control everything, it could be something they have no control of that came from out of house.

It's not going to be any big deal. A sensor or something is going to need replaced.

Push the Onstar button, maybe they can tell you what the code is. Possible a sensor got knocked off from the tie downs.

Did you use the frame tie down slots or were straps hanging around the wheel area? My guess is going to be strap damage to a shock connector or wheel speed sensor if the frame slots were not used.

DO NOT CHANGE the PTM MODES WHILE DRIVING! Read manual. It says you can do permanent damage to it if changing while driving! Easy to overlook that section of manual and try to change modes on the fly.... = big mistake. Might be your cause?

If a button push could cause damage, the programming would simply not allow the input at that time.

You can change modes while driving. The warning you see in that section has to do with shifting the transmission while the wheels are spinning.

Check the fuel cap, make sure it's tight. I spent $100 for a diagnostic on my Avalanche at the dealership just to find out it was a bad/loose fuel cap ($20 fix). But then again it's under warranty so let them worry bout it.
