Dash lit up like a Christmas tree.


Hey everyone, so this happened today. I dropped down to 4th to pass someone, passed them cut back over, back into 5th and then it lit up like so. Including service awc system light. Basically everything it can flash at you. Some details, it's a 2015 bone sock GSR, with 17k on it. Turned the car off most lights went off but check engine is still on. I checked the fuses and didn't see any that were blown. Thanks for any and all help! Oh also, It doesn't boost at all. Kept it ended 3k per shift for the rest of the drive home.

I am no expert, but it looks like electrical problem. Have you check all the fuses?

I agree, I checked the fuses in the engine bay, they all looked fine none were blown.

Sorry I meant the fuse box under the steering wheel. Also, have you tried reading the ODBII and see if any code comes up? What about disconnecting the batt for a bit and reconnect it...

I am hoping someone who knows more can help you. Your car is practically brand new and stock! ha!

So an update. I disconnected the battery, reconnected it. Got the car home. Been out on the bike this weekend so haven't started it. At this time I just went to start it. Will not kick over. Had one code, cannot connect to abs. Cleared it and it still will not start. Any one got anything for this? Fuses under the dash look okay too.

I recall reading something about the fuel relay in these being ****. Can anyone she'd some light? Checked all the hoses and vacuum lines nothing is disconnected.

Since I just got the car 3 months ago haven't done anything to it figured I'd check the plugs. Not completely screwed to the point it shouldn't start.

Does it turn over and doesn't start? Or is it completely dead when you turn the key?

It is cranking but won't start. Has power, sounds like it has air. I think it needs fuel or spark. Seeing as how I can't crank it and check the spark that's out for now. Leaning towards fuel. Relays were swapped. Are the stock fuel pumps known for dying on these?

Got it to start....but had to throttle it like a 2 stroke. No codes, stays running. Still feel there's something wrong with it.

Edit- smells very rich

Second edit- it drives but as soon as the I put the clutch in or stop the rpms bounce from 1000-1500 for 10 seconds before leveling out

Spend $150 on an open port adapter and evoscan so you can pull some actual data of what is going on.

Are you sure you didn't pop a hose or something? Maybe a small vacuum line?
