Hi Everyone,
I am hoping someone can help me. I have a 2005 6 speed coupe. I am now bring my Corvette back to the dearlership for the third time. When driving the Active Handling message will come on and then the car will then reduce it's speed but yet when I push the button to Active Handling off or Competative Driving Mode the car will pick up speed again. Anyone else who has a C6 have this problem? Yesterday the dealership replaced the Steering Suspension Ride Control but this has not fixed the problem. Any suggestions? Thanks for any input you may have.
Thanks,
Marguerite..........Ldyvette

Nope, but someday.
HI there,
What did it actually say??
Please be precise.
Service Active handling??
Service ride control??
There is a technical service bulletin for a steering wheel position sensor harness that could create the service active handling message.
It is a simple fix, if this is what is causing your issue.
Allthebest, :bash

Why don't we all figure out a way to compensate, somehow, guys like c4c5specialist, who's knowledge of Corvettes helps us all, he should own a Corvette. Just my opinion......

It says Active Handling System Activated.........I can feel the brakes being applied and the car slows down...........the dealership replaced the steering wheel rotation sensor...........but this is not the problem since the car still has the same problem. Thanks for your help.

Are you driving in a straight line? I get the same message when i accelerate real fast while turning sharply, causing the back end to slide out. That message is normal when that happens. I had the same issue after pulling out of a parking lot, the engine seemed to bog down till I let off the throttle for abit. I have a 2005 A4 and got a tune to remove torgue management and now I can spin the tires and have the back end slide out without the engine bog feeling. I am not sure if the TM was ever settled on if it is on the 6 speed manual, but it is diffently on the autos. If it happens when you are not turning, it could be a bad or loose yaw accelerometer.

HI there,
It would be suggested to check the wiring harness going TO the sensor to make sure its NOT stressed too much, creating a terminal connection issue.
Second, checking on the data when this occurs with a Tech 2 would be the next course of action to see EXACTLY why the system is activating and when.

This is a little off the current thread but I am wondering how well the regular C6 with Z51, automatic paddle shift transmission and a 2.56 rear axle ratio can do against the 6-speed manual with a 3.42 rear end? I have successfully autocrossed an automatic tranny since 1974 & want to upgrade from my '98 to a C6 and still have the automatic. Thanks!
