    FOR ANY OF YOU STILL HAVING CL PROBLEMS____GET the LMC5 from COMPLIANCE PARTS--This the only and final fix--THAT WORKS!!!!! You can use any battery you like as long as it meets original c5 specs--keep it charged up--

    Default AC Delco Battery C5 Service Replacement...years later!

    Well, the AC Delco battery for my 00 Corvette failed its battery test and researching its replacement has been less than successful. Even using part numbers listed in this discussion thread has not produced correct service replacement.

    I went to O'Reilly's, an AC Delco parts vendor but they do not offer Delco batteries, only offering their Optima Red top with the 120 RC.

    So looking for suggestions others may have worked through to pick up a correct service replacement AC Delco for the C5.

    I had three C5s, and used Red Tops in all of them. Never had an issue.
    There are times for thinking, and times for acting, but the art is in the balance

    Was this just put in as a result of the fix (which I thought I read somewhere) or was it built in to the programming originally? My 2004 Z06 recently had the service steering column lock message pop up. The lock seems to have failed in the unlocked position. Do I risk having the fuel cut off if i keep driving it? I did replace the 12 year old stock battery this weekend, the message still was there but the battery was under 12 v when I checked on the DIC before starting. I planned to drive it 100 miles tomorrow and each of the next 4 days, which should charge it but I don't want to risk the fuel being cut off.

    I've searched but can't find the answer to this.
