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

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

2x13mm bolt/nut on lower control arm

Lisle 20400 tool recommended for removal of stem nut. (I show in the video

C5 Corvette Check Valve Replacement Slideshow
An alternative to replacing the passenger side check valve on a C5
Corvette(1997-2004). This repair is for the person who wants to fix their
own car without having to remove the fuel rails and intake manifold. This
fix allows for future easy access to the passenger side check valve in case
it fails again. This fix takes approximately 1.5 hours and costs between
$40-$65. The cause of the problem is an old check valve that is warn out
causing your CHECK ENGINE light to come on. The C5's computer will tell
you that you have a P1416 code which indicates a faulty passenger side

C5 Corvette 'Service Column Lock' Message Fix
Well my 2001 Corvette Z06 got the dreaded "SERVICE COLUMN LOCK" message
after sitting for a while during my summer vacation to Cancun and having
the battery die. After changing the battery I first got the "PULL KEY WAIT
10 SEC" message, then after doing as told, "SERVICE COLUMN LOCK" came onto
The steering wheel was still easily tunable, so this Vette must have had
the recall service done by its previous owner; however my fuel would cut
off at 2 MPH since the cars BCM must have thought the steering was locked.
After hearing from a couple guys on corvetteforum that the LMC5 from
ComplianceParts(DOT)com is the way to go, I decided to give it a shot.
The install was quite simple, and so far it has fixed the fuel cutoff, as
well as both messages.
