SERVICE COLUMN LOCK (Manual Transmission Only): If the system that controls the locking and unlocking of the steering column does not work properly, have the vehicle towed to a dealer for service.
Come to think of it, a prompt did show up on the DIC immediately prior to the column lock prompt that said something like "charging system fault". Think the battery is going?
BTW, it is the original battery and the car has 62,000 miles. Thanks foir the response!
Thanks! I'll give that a shot...<br><br>ICOMPIt is very possible that low voltage from a discharged or bad battery is your problem, column lock procedures are extremely voltage sensitive. Have your battery fully charged, and then properly tested with a carbon pile load tester to see if it is still good (keep in mind that "fully charged" does not mean that the battery is good, only that it is ready to be tested). If you do need a new battery it is important to select a battery that has a minimum of 550 CCA (cold crank amps) and 120 RC (reserve capacity) rating, the RC rating is very important in C5's. Good luck with it. <img class="inlineimg" title="Smilie" border="0" alt="" src="http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif" smilieid="1">
