Some 1997 - 1999 Corvettes may exhibit an illuminated "check gauges" light along with the fuel gauge reading empty. This condition results from the owner refueling the vehicle without turning off the engine.
Without turning off the engine, the PCM does not receive the correct information from the fuel level sensors. The system may also set DTC P1431. owners should be advised to turn off the engine before refueling.
