Please provide the lines you are trying to insert. And your copy of carcols if it is already changed.

I provided a copy of both my current carcols file and carcols file which contains the lines I am supposed to add. I've changed the name of the carcols file that I am supposed to add to "carcols addition" to make this obvious and easier for you. If it helps, the additional files come from 2017 Camaro found on the lcpdfr website. I have carcol for other vehicles i need to add also, so hopefully you can get this issue resolved soon.

Where are the files?

I don't know why they didn't show up. I added them again.

carcols addition.meta (32,450 bytes)
carcols.ymt (455,660 bytes)

In the code you whant to insert there is Lights Item with ID value = 990. OpenIV cannot save this into binary PSO format because this value is one byte number. So, it's limited to 255 max.

Thanks for the help, I will change this number to something within the limits. Is there a way to increase this max limit as I have found similar issues with other vehicle mods?

I was able to change the id value 990 and and save successfully, however when i try to insert the siren data id value 19 from the same file it is once again unable to save

There are two values like this:
<sequencer value="-858993460"/>

Change them both to:
<sequencer value="3435973836"/>

And it should work.
