If your Corvette was built after 1981, the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light will illuminate at some point. Unfortunately, there are many misconceptions about the glowing yellow light.
If you own a C-4 equipped with Bose sound system, you will eventually need Bose amplifier repair or replacement. Every Bose sound system equipped C-4 uses one amplifier per speaker. This is the weak link. Amplifier capacitors are filled with electrolytic fluid which ultimately leaks out onto the circuit board causing failure. If the leak […]

When the 1990 Corvette debuted, GM introduced ECM (Engine Control Module) and CCM (Central Control Module) trouble codes. In addition, ABS/ASR (Anti-lock Brake System/Acceleration […]

Everywhere you look on the C6, an electronic device is operating something we had to either manually perform or think about previously. All of these electronic gadgets require stable voltage for long life. The days of removing the battery cable […]
The following is a workbook from a technical seminar that we sponsored during Corvettes at Carlisle in 2007. The workshop was hosted by Chris Petris from Petris Enterprises in Scottsboro, AL. The concept is to provide easy to understand electrical troubleshooting concerning all Corvette generations in layman’s terms. We’ll show you how to do this […]
