jmX Engineering Column Lock Bypass (33723 views)
One 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. Fortunately, 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.

Included with the simulator is a cigarette lighter adapter for the column lock to "manually" unlock the column lock (needed once during the install only), a Torx T-15 tool useful for getting the interior knee panel off during installation, and a brief instruction sheet.

Review:
Kinda unfair for me to review this product, but I will say that I do manufacture them on a mini-assembly line and test the units at various stages of their production with a mock-up test machine I made. At the price point, I beleive this is the best bargain out there!
