2002 Corvette C5 Z06 Owners Manual VHS Tape
This video, on VHS, was provided to new owners and specifically focuses on
The VHS is labeled "2002 Corvette Z06" but as you may know, the 2002-2004
Z06's had a virtually identical drive train. I personally own a 2004 Z06
and found the video very informative.
The video addresses issues that customers were concerned about such as
noises (clunking sound on 6-Speed Z06's), HVAC controls (why the A/C
compressor turns on when you press the front defrost button, undercarriage
noises, and more.

Day-amn! This graduate of the Lance Briggs School of Hi-Performance Driving
had hit the retaining wall so hard, it sheared the spokes right off the rim
of one of the wheels. Steel and rubber doughnut, anyone?
Clear, dry road, gentle curve, wide, well-marked lanes, beautiful, mild
50-degree Friday morning -- how do they continue to do it? Oh, well, as
long as they do, you'll see it here first.
I'll let you be surprised with --- the REST --- of the story. Watch, enjoy,
and if you're feeling a little schadenfreude for a Vette owner with too
much money and too little common sense, you're human.
Corvette reading diagnostic codes on the instrument panel 97- 04 by froggy
I show how to retrieve and use OBD2 diagnostic trouble codes on a 1997 to
2004 C5 Corvette. You do not need a special tool (code reader) to access
these codes. This procedure is not mentioned in the owner's manual. The
codes can be looked up on the internet to help figure out what is wrong
with the car. by froggy

1999 Corvette C5 vs. 2013 392 Hemi Challenger
Hey all, this was at Irwindale dragstrip. Got to have a rematch against
that same SRT8 Challenger that properly kicked my ass in the Mustang. I beat him once, but then he
came back with an impressive victory. Hard to believe a car that heavy can
move that fast.
I actually have to wear a helmet now... yes... Ive earned it LOL

Changing Your DRL's in 2 Minutes!
A brief how-to on changing the daytime running lights on a C5 with a stock
bumper. Once you do this a few times, you can do it in your sleep. No tools
One thing to note that I didn't mention in this video. The LS-15 socket
that the bulb sits in has a locking tab that you may have to squeeze in
order for the socket to turn. That tab may or may not be present on your
socket (due to the excessive heat exerted on this socket from the bulb, the
tab frequently break off). If your socket seems to be locked in place when
you attempt to turn it, then your tab may be present and you'll need to
squeeze that tab in order to free and turn the the socket. Google a LS-15
socket by AC Delco so that you can see what one looks like and get an idea
as to what the locking tab looks like.
You can find a bunch more DIY repairs for the C5 over at
www.digitalcorvettes.com, where I go by the user name of Junkman2008. If
your bulb is frequently blowing, it's because of water intrusion. In that
case, you need to replace the lens that the bulb sits in because the bulb
has burned a hole into the TOP of that lens. I show how to repair this
issue at Digital Corvettes. I have many writeup's strictly for repairing
the C5 that will save you a boatload of money on repairs. Most dealerships
want $70 just for this repair alone. That's what you just saved.
Save the wave! :)
