GM has announced a recall for certain 2008 Corvettes. On certain 2008 models, the keyless access system may become inoperative at times. The doors may not automatically lock or unlock, and the vehicle may not start. The Driver Information Center (DIC) will also display a "No Fobs Detected" message.
If this occurs to you, you can lock or unlock the doors by pushing the buttons on the keyless access transmitter. The vehicle can be started by placing the transmitter in the glove box transmitter pocket with the buttons facing towards the passenger’s side. Then, with the vehicle in Park for an Automatic, press the brake pedal and the vehicle start button. If you have a manual transmission, press the clutch and start button.
The following VIN breaks (last 8 of the VIN) are affected: 85105302 to 85106987.
Schedule a repair with your dealer, do not just take your vehicle in – just in case they do not have the part available for your repair, because this will not be a quick repair. GM is estimating that it will take over an hour to repair the Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR) which is what is at fault.
If you have any questions, please contact your dealer or us at CorvetteBlog.
