Column Lock SimulatorOne of the most common and annoying problems with the C5 model Corvette is the steering column lock getting stuck! There is nothing like walking out to your car after a hard day's work only to find your $45k sports car is immobile due to a faulty lock. Fortunatly, there is a way around this. A column lock simulator will allow you to disable the factory locking mechanism, while allowing the car's computer to still believe everything is working problem free. All year C5's with a 6 speed transmission, and all pre-2001 model C5's with an automatic can use this device. 2001 and later model automatic cars do not have a column lock at all, however the 6 speed cars retained it.
For 1997 and 1998 cars, there is a possibility you will randomly see a message "Pull key and wait 10 seconds" with a Column Lock Simulator. Thus far, 2% of my customers have had it, and other manufacturers have had the same issue with 1997 and 1998 model cars. If you have a 1997 or 1998 model, and you understand this, you can order below. You will have the option of a refund if the simulator does not work in your vehicle.
