if you pull fuses then unhook the power from the battery let set for 5 mins then hook back up. but sometimes it takes a few miles for a computer to recalibrate.

Yippy skippy now we can find something else to bitch about (JK)
I can't believe it was that easy to fix,lets hope it doesn't falter again.
At least now you don't have to back down from any challenges.

Glad to see a fix for those that had a power problem

Just a note, I had mine in for an airbag service light, unhooked the battery and the tech run a jumper from positive cable to negative cable to insure that all was reset, cuts out the waiting.

No problem with power vin # 31492

My Internet went out at the house. Power from the driveway must be interfering. Lol I'm on my phone. I'll make an update. But what I did was very simple. Car off, pull the fuses, wait for a couple of hours, replace fuses, kick some ass.

Just to confirm... is this the same thing the dealer would do if you told them to do an ECM reset? Or do they do anything additional? If this is it, I'll just do it myself when I get my car back.

And another question... does this reset your oil life?

And last but not least... Glad to see your car running good numbers now!
I'm sure I should have known this. Sorry.
My oil life indcator did NOT reset. At first I thought it was a sure sign that nothing changed but the engine starting had me pretty exited. Just roared like it had not before, and no popping of small backfire.

I will say this. I started to get the feeling that a lot of people were doubting me on here. It really sucked. I don't believe there is any denying at this point that there has been a problem. If there is anyone who still doubts, I'd like to know why.

Junkie and Spike, I know I left myself open for a good joke here.

pulling the fuses was a good idea, not only do you NOT have to disconnect the battery, but you saved all the other settings on the car. In most cars, all you have to do is hit the brakes while the fuses are out or the battery is disconnected to make it "reset". no waiting required.

Congrats on your fix. I still hope gm comes out with a ecu update for all a6 camaros that will stop this from happening, I use 93 octane only but you never know what condition the gas will be in. Its kind of crazy to have so many speed variations on the same new car.

We figure out pulling the battery is not resetting the ECM. It has a battery backup unit for it. So it runs off that battery when you disconnect the car battery. The fuse pull cuts that power.

Guys, I showed ya`ll this in another thread, and commented in another. Mine picked up 8rwhp on the dyno w/ pulling those 2 fuses for 5 minutes. Of course it wasn`t really low at 319rwhp, just baseline average. The only bad thing is I don`t think the increase will be permanent once the LTFT`s have time to record. I can`t go back to the dyno to verify this as I have headers on so no way to know if its pulling power again or not as numbers will be higher.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36837

Stock L99 Dynograph w/ some interesting info

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just dynoed mine to get a baseline (600 miles) and it put down 319rwhp twice then we pulled the pcm fuses for it to forget the LTFT (Long Term Fuel Trims), engine had more heatsoak than the first two pulls and it put down 327rwhp...Let me tell you picking up 8rwhp by doing that, this computer has a serious nanny program. The trans tune alone is going to be awesome. It really woke up my A6 Vette. I put ARH headers on it the day after and as soon as the Vararam is ready that will go on and I will get it tuned. So have faith o L99 bretheren...The curious thing I`ve noted is how there is a slight sip in the graph after 5250rpm`s then it picks back up, I`m assuming this may be when the VVT kicks out and is no longer making that extra midrange power. Any tuners can explain that? I`ve seen it on other L99 graphs, but not on the LS3 graphs...

Scott... how did you come to the idea of pulling fuses? Was this just a random discovery or did the GM guys key you into something?

Someone post in a in a thread to pull those fuses. Randy and I just never did it. Randy did it and now you can even hear his car spinning those 21" wheels in heat which he could not do before.

And you do not want to even ask what #230 is doing to day with the over night fuse pull.

Counted 26 feet of rubber left on the ground from a dead stop with just punching the gas. She also slide sideways some. With traction control on she is leaving 8 feet of rubber.

What kind of fuel comes in the car? The dealer told me all they use for all their GM vehicles is 87. We went and filled it with 93... but I'm curious what was already in the tank from the factory.

I'm contemplating removing the fuses myself... I definitely don't get tire squeel like that. I can make my tires chirp a bit off the line, but NOTHING like these vids... and especially not what Scott is telling us.

If you are going to pull them I would say do it and let it set overnight. That way the battery backup should of cleared also.

Also it was cool here this morning, will she how she drives when it get warmer today. I did make sure the tires got heated up from driving before trying it though since the P-Zero's will be slippery when cold. But car was in garage overnight.

So for us mechanically challenged, where are these fuses that I can pull? I don't want to jack up my car but I want to see if this helps.

Ok...someone should make a new sticky thread with all the "Do this at your own risk" planted all over it. Then have a step by step with pics on which one and where to pull the fuses. Maybe have video of the before and after if possible. On the step by step you have to be basic and don't assume the end user knows anything about anything car related.

Just my .02 cents.....
