C5 DTC Reading Procedure & List

Here is an overview of the C5 Repair procedures and terms used for resetting codes.

To display the C5 Repair diagnostic trouble codes for all modules that transmit them.
The Diagnostic Display Mode is entered with the following procedure:
1) Turn on the ignition but don't start the engine.
2) Press the RESET button to turn off any warning messages
3) Press and hold OPTIONS
4) While holding OPTIONS, press FUEL four times within a 10-second period.

NOTE!! Only reset the codes IF you want to it's NOT necessary to do this. Clearing a code does not repair a problem.
You are simply erasing the evidence of it in the module's memory. Once you have the codes, the next question is: What to do with the information? First, consult the factory service manual. Any serious C5 Do-It-Yourself owner should invest in the Corvette Service Manual of the appropriate model year. Do a search on ebay for CD versions as this is what I did. I hope to have a reference center on this site to help you find that info.

C5 Repair Turn the key to the ON position, but don't start the engine. Clear any existing messages by pressing the RESET button. Hold the OPTIONS button down, and press the FUEL button 4 times. This will get you into the CODES section of the DIC. The computer will automatically display all the codes your car has created. It will cycle through each code every 3 seconds. Any code that ends in H is a history code (something that has occurred in the past) but is fine now. Once the computer has finished going through all of it's codes, press RESET to enter Manual Configuration mode. It should start with a module and show NO CODES or # CODES.

To optionally reset the codes once in manual mode, press and hold RESET until it displays NO CODES Press OPTIONS to go to the next module. Repeat the steps in this paragraph until you have reset the codes in all the computer modules.

NOTE!! Only reset the codes IF you want to - it is NOT necessary to do this.

Resetting Tire Pressure Sensors

C5 Repair:

1) Turn ignition on

2) Press "Reset" button in order to clear any IPC display warning messages

3) Press and release the "Options" button on the DIC to scroll through the display options until the IPC display is blank

4) Press and hold the DIC "Reset" button for 3 seconds

5) Press the "Options" button again until TIRE TRAINING message appears

6) Press "Reset" button until the IPC "Learn L Front Tire" message appears in order to begin the programming

7) Install the J41760 Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) System Programming Tool (large magnet will do) over the left front valve stem

8) The horn will sound, indicating the left front TPM sensor is programmed (if this takes more than 15 seconds, pull magnet back and try again, it will give you three tries. Then you must start over)

9) When the horn sounds, proceed to program the next TPM sensor in the following order as directed by the IPC messages: -Learn R Front Tire -Learn R Rear Tire -Learn L Rear Tire

Programming can be canceled by turning ignition off, waiting 2 minutes with no sensors being learned, finishing all 4 wheels or through the DIC. If the programming is canceled with less than 4 sensors learned, it will only accept the codes programmed up to that point.

C5 Repair Secrets

1 The little yellow "helper light" on the bottom of the rear-view mirror that illuminates the shifter area

2 That you can put your key in the driver's door and turn it twice towards the front to unlock the passenger door and a third time to pop the trunk.

3 That you can pop the trunk and also pop the gas cap cover by pulling on metal lines hidden in the back.

4 The little slotted cover on the dash behind the steering wheel is where the inside air temperature sensor is located.

C5 Repair tips

5 All of the option codes are in the glove box.

6 Tire inflation recommended pressures are on the driver's door

7 The thing that looks like a little LED near the DIC buttons is a light sensor

8 The thing that looks like a little LED near the defroster vent is a UV sensor for determining A/C usage to compensate for the heating effect of the sun

9 The build sheet is in the front re-bar

10 If you leave your turn signal on, in about 1 minute it will start to ding (loud enough to hear over the stereo) to let you know you have old timers disease.

C5 Repair tips

11 You can reset the oil life by pumping the gas pedal 3 times (but not with the engine running)

12 Hold down the reset button while on one of the trip odometers and it changes that reading to the miles you've traveled since last starting the engine.

C5 Repair tips

13 Hold down the Active Handling button for 5 sec. to engage "Competitive Driving" on cars equipped with active handling (2000 and previous years must be stopped.)

14 If you pull the seatbelts all the way out while you're buckled in, they ratchet back in to hold you tighter into the seat.

15 Simply remove fuse #2 under the hood and your DRLs will be out permanently. Only thing affected is that when you unlock at night using the key fob your front turn signal lights and back up lights will not will not flash. Your front turn signals will operate normally, however.

C5 Repair tip16 The side-view mirrors can twist both forward and backward, decreasing the chance of damage if struck.

17 There is a release opening with a flap to let air out of the car when the hatch is closed. It is located just above the driver side rear compartment, behind the carpet and on the side of the car. Not that it really works well.

18 Also you can ground your amp to a screw/bolt that holds the rear middle compartment to the frame.

C5 Repair tip

19 If you have a 6-speed car you can pop the trunk when the car is running by lifting the e-brake.

20 There is a spot on the driver side just out of the middle compartment under the carpet for the lug nut key. You should have a compartment on the drivers & passenger‚'s side (in the trunk) and a center compartment. On the left (drivers) side of the center compartment, on the left side where the center cover fits, there is an 'indent' that holds the wheel lock key.

21 If you turn on the headlights, then go to parking light position, the lamps remain up but the headlights are not left on.

22 If you have the passive entry feature: If you lock your keys in the car, wait a few minutes and then shake the car. That will unlock the car.

C5 Repair tip

23 HUD has a shift light for manuals.

24 You can easily shift the M6 trans up or down without the clutch if you match revs. (Not great for longevity, however.)

25 You can eject the cd from the in-dash player without turning on any power. Don't even need key in the ignition.

26 The cruise will disengage if you purposely make sharp side to side turns while cruising at say 60-80 mph.

27 When the engine is shut off, you can get the odometer reading by turning on the parking lights.

28 You can program setting #3 (both memory buttons at once) in the seat memory to run the seat back and steering wheel forward for getting in/out of the car with the engine running.
