    Man, hate to hear of the problems!!! I posted a question a while back concerning the first-year problems of the 05 C6. Often the first year of a production has some bugs that later years work out. It does seem that the 2005 has some of those issues. I hope all your problems happend at once and that you have no more in the future!!

    well im in an vetteclub ..wit atleast 45 vettes in the club & most of them are c6 wit alot of them being 2005 models ..so im the 1st & just amybe it wont happen 2 anyone else..see that why i started the thread 2 see any other 05 models had the same problems ...i think most of the problems is the the repairmens need 2 go back 2 school 2 learn how work on c6 cause these cars are very high -tech & i dont think they know what they are dealing wit

    Our Corvette club is about 200 strong with most being C5's & maybe +/- 20 - C6's (including me) and so far I've never heard any C6 complants (other than batteries).

    HI there,

    If you had a PCM shutdown, maybe its possible, which shuts down the entire communications line.

    Sure have seen that, but most definately isnt a common occurance.

    HI there,

    The next time, ask them to itemize codes, although Im very suspect of the NAV causing the issue.

    It only RECEIVED data, not transmission of data, so Im just glad they got you taken care of.

    thanks & i will but hope that it never happens again ..they also were trying 2 say that the aftermarket amp & sub that i had installed about 4 years ago burned my radio 7 that was the reason the car shut itself down like i said i had it professionally install & i called the guy who did & he also said how can that be the problem wit it played & i nevered anday of problems wit the car ..but i do remember the day that it shut down ..rite before it did ..that car ran so many codes thru my message board & then just shut it self down & didnt come back up ...now im almost scared 2 have my amp hooked back up cause i dont want this car shut down on me again ,,,do you think thatcould have something 2 do wit it ...get back 2 me & let me know .

    HI there,

    It all depends on where your amplifer is located and if you shielded all your supply wires to and from it.

    EMI plays havoc with these vehicles if not monitored.

    It most certainly COULD have something to do with it.
