2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Active Handling Service

March 31, 2011


We dropped off our 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 to address the "service active handling" threat scrolling across the IP and asked for your diagnosis. From there the guesses came rolling in. They covered just about everything:

"Wheel speed sensor."

"EBCM module... $1500-$2200 at the dealer."

"Yaw sensor."

"Steering wheel position sensor."

"Battery acid on the ECU."

Our service advisor called us a few hours after we delivered the Z06. He explained, "We found fault code C1287, which is a problem with the steering position sensor. We checked for any shorts or bad grounds in that circuit. Everything looked good so we are going to replace the faulty sensor and clear the code. Your car will be ready to pick up tomorrow."

Did you call it? Well, pat yourself on the back.

Total Cost: $290.54

Days out of Service: 1
