Dual Mode Exhaust

I just got my 1LE last month and after meeting some one else with on I noticed my exhaust is not working correctly. The baffle is not moving turning my dual mode into a single mode exhaust. It is stuck in the open position so I am not to upset but, I do expect a brand new car to work properly. I took it the dealer and they made me wait 3 days to tell me that it only works while driving not at idle but I know that is not true.

yes it is open all the time I will ask about the fuse but I think I have to go to a different dealer ship since this one is convinced it only works while driving.

DrillSgt1LE,

Sincerest apologies to hear about the exhaust concerns. Can you private message me the VIN and name of the dealership you're referring to? I would like to research this matter further for you.

It does technically work only while driving.

Rev at idle and listen for a click coming from the rear of the car as the revs come down, better yet stand behind it and look at the valve.

Camaro setup is not like the Corvette setup which closes at idle.

yes but while revving other 1LEs and all other Camaros with NPP make a metallic sound and you can see the valve open and close mine does nothing....
