Hey thanks I'll check it out.vette747 said:A lot of the relays were found to be defective. I ordered my 3rd one today (not installed yet). If you really want to make sure the relay is the culprit, check for ground on the green wire (circuit 1601) when ‘unlock’ or +12v when ‘Lock’. That green wire is the one that sends the Lock-unlock message to the BCM since its role is to bypass the original ECL switch signal.
I have this message from time to time. Tonight I removed the panel under the steering column. I attached the relay at a convenient place. I will drive the car like that for a little while. Next time it appends, I will check for ground or voltage on green wire on the spot since the relay is easy to access and I have the multimeter in the car. That will tell me if the relay is the problem. If I do not get a ground signal or I see +12v on green wire when I get the ‘pull key’ msg, that means the relay is not doing its job.
You can see on picture that you can easily probe the green and black wire from the back of the relay.
That could also be the key pellet, but same as you, I got this problem only since the harness was installed. So I would say this is related to the relay.
On a side note. I got the recall information and the diagram from this forum on that link : http://corvetteactioncenter.com/kb/question.php?qstId=236
Picture of relay located at a place I will be able to diagnose on the spot.
Picture of the relay on the driver floor. Sorry for the picture in B&W. I forgot to turn the color option on camera....
