2k12 V-6 idiot lights coming on. Sound familiar?

Anyone experienced something like this before?

Ran the tank on my '12 2LT/RS (ragtop) nearly to empty, filled-up (and yes, I put the gas cap back on tight), and when I restarted the car all the idiot lights for traction control/stabilitrack light up, and I got a message (where the digital mph display is) that power to the engine had been cut. Indeed, lost lots of power, started getting backfires. Let the car sit for about an hour, now only the generic "service engine" light was lit -- the others didn't light, and the engine ran apparently perfectly. Next day, all was back to normal -- no warning lights at all.

Scheduled a visit to the dealer but cancelled when I saw there were no warning lights lit now, and a buddy of mine who owns a recent Vette (don't recall the year or model) said he's experienced the same thing. Apparently after this event, several restarts of the engine whacks the computer's brain back into sanity.

Anyone with this same experience, or knowledge about it or what's going on?

you should have taken to the dealer anyway. apparently GM is aware of a computer communication read error and there is a bulletin out but no fix yet. mine did the same engine.light on then went off. took it in anyway. thought it was the curse of GM as this camaro was bought with money GM paid me for my solstice gxp with multiple check engine.lights in 30 k miles. by the way, does your V6 seem to be noisy? i mean is there an unusual amount of engine ticking when idling as if lifters or something mechanical? i've been told by service that the noise is the fuel injectors but never heard injectors.so loud and never heard a new engine sound so loud
