Well it started shortly after I bounced the 6.0 LS off the rev limiter on a bad 2-3 shift on the way to lunch, no issues on the short drive to lunch, but when I went to start the car to go back to work it would not turn over, and the Check Engine Light was on. The weirdness started when I left the ignition switch in run, and moved the steering wheel left & right a couple of times with the clutch pedal engaged the car started without moving the ignition switch to start!
The engine ran fine on the way back to work but the CE light was still on. The a few hours later when I went to leave work the car would not turn over again, no amount of turning the steering wheel this time had any effect. I had a couple of coworkers handy to push start the car, started up with the CE Light on, no other lights on. Drove home with no issues, and seemed to run fine.
I then tried to hook up my old OBD-2 code checker it would power up, but when I tried to scan the codes it kept coming up with "can not connect to car" "check connections and try again" this scanner worked with my 1997 Firebird, & 1999 Grand prix. But may not me compatible with the Solstice?
Well the car started normally after I arrived home, with the CE light on. So in frustration I pulled the battery Positive cable, that reset the CE light, the car now starts & drives Normally with no CE light. The car is a Mallet converted LS2, with a Ken Kelly Tune. I have 2 questions
(1) Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
(2) What scan tools are you using? Any suggestions on a new one?
Any suggestions always welcome
