    How to Shut Off Check Gauges Dash Light?

    I am having the C5 Gas gauge problem and this time it's not going away. Techron is not doing the trick this year. Anyone know how to disable the check gauges light on the cluster? Not check engine, check gauges. Drives me crazy especially at night. Reset shuts off the low fuel light on the...

    C5 Gas Gauge finally died.

    I bought my 2000 new and started to have the gas gauge problem after a few years. Been doing the Techron thing for years but it just doesn't do it anymore. Any ideas on how much to replace the sending unit in the fuel tank or any other magical fixes? I don't mind filling the tank every 100 miles...

    I bought a new yellow top and am wondering if I should use my older battery tenders on it. I have a large charger that says Not for Gel Batteries.

    Car Rolling When Parked In Gear-Weird

    I have a 2000 manual since new. 30K miles. I parked it on a slight incline in 4th gear and when I got out it started creeping backward. Shocked the chit out of me. The compressions is fine and the car goes like it was new at WOT without a hint of clutch slip or loss of power. I only use the...

    Need Help to ID Intake Noise

    After a couple of years and 16,000 miles my engine started to make a sucking noise-sort of a "pist" when I blip the throttle and or take off. Sounds like the sound of a carbureted car with no air cleaner. Checked about 7 of my friends cars and no such sound. Took it to the dealers and he said it...

    Dash Light Problem. PLEASE HELP

    I took out my C5 Vert tonight and when I put the lights on the 1&2 buttons on the right pod stack (I believe fuel & trip or options) did not illuminate. Did not flicker but both would go on for a few minutes and off for a few. I hate things that don't work. Any ideas. Thanks, Mike

    Nav Updating ?

    On the C6 you bought a new disk. What is the process of updating the nav in the C7? Does the dealer reprogram it, does it do this by itself? I am sure $$ has to change hands somewhere.

    Z51 vs Z51 With Mag Ride?

    Would a Z51 with MRC give a softer ride in the tour mode than a non MRC Z51? Is the sport & track mode of the mrc vehicle stiffer or the same as a Z51 without mrc. Thanks, Mike

    Are there any reports on how the quality is on aftermarket visible CF roofs? I understand GM uses some exotic clear coat on theirs. Is the same true with aftermarket? The OEM is $4,500 from GM Parts Direct & $5,800 from my dealers parts dept.

    When I cold start my 2015-Z51 (40 degrees) I get a sound like hot water baseboard heat gurgling through pipes. I don't know if it will do it at a higher temperature because 40 degrees is the warmest it's been in the last month. Very noticeable for the first 30 seconds. Only put 100 miles on...
