    Default New to the world of the C5 Corvette?

    If you've just joined the Corvette Action Center or recently purchased a C5 Corvette, you may find these links helpful and/or interesting:

    C5 Forum Index

    Corvette Action Center Tech Center

    Corvette Action Center Model Center Index

    Thread: C5 Owner's Manual Links

    Thread: Pulling Codes on a C5

    CAC Knowledgebase | C5 Diagnostic Troubleshooting Codes List

    CAC Knowledgebase | C5 Section | 1997-2004

    CAC | C5 General Forum | Things you may not know about your C5

    If you're a new member, post a thread in the New Member Introductions Forum so we have a chance to stop by and say hello.

    If you have questions, problems or comments about the Corvette Action Center website, post a thread in the Site Help and Feedback Forum and someone will follow up with you soon.

    EDIT: Did you know that the National Corvette Museum offers reproduction build sheets and reproduction window stickers for Corvettes assembled in Bowling Green since 1981?? For about $100 NCM members can order laminated copies plus an original Dealer brochure plus the latest copy of the Corvette Black Book! Unfortunately, Dealer brochures are not available for all model years.
    For more info go here: NCM | Build Sheets - Window Stickers | Order Form

    Enjoy!

    Excellent idea for a thread, Jane Ann!

    This is the info I most often share with new member C5 owners so I thought it would be convenient to include it all in one thread I could link to.

    Hi, Casey,
    If you look carefully at the Corvette logos on the Tach and Speedometer, you'll see those are C6 Corvette logos. In the C6, you program each key fob's personal settings into the DIC display, including a user name. It then displays the name at engine start up.

    Unfortunately, this feature wasn't available in the C5.

    Hey Gang,

    Thanks for doing this!!! We just traded off our 1987 Bright Red Coupe, and moved into the 21st Century! What a difference!!! We're looking forward to cruzin' the highways in a little more comfort!

    Hello all. Though, in it's own way, it broke my heart to sell my 1989 Bright Red C4, yesterday I became the proud owner of a 2004 Magnetic Red Metallic II C5. I will miss the '89, but dang I love this C5! Awesome vehicle.
    Some people are like slinkies,
    They don't really have a purpose,
    But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
