Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Have just imported a 2015 Corvette

Customer Question

Have just imported a 2015 Corvette into New Zealand. The key is in the center console. The battery has gone flat and the vehicle has auto locked. The vehicle is stuck on the wharf as we can't move. I'm trying to get the key number out of the US dealer but this is proving difficult. I heard that I may be able to power up the starter motor from an external battery and this may unlock the vehicle as it apparently works on earlier corvettes. Any suggestions?

Hi Mark, My name is***** will be glad to try to help. Click on this link and see "PDF" pages 35-48 on using the transmitters etc to try to reset the system. Let me know if we need to dig deeper into this. Also, Onstar can likely disable the system for you but for that ownership must be proven and a subscription is necessary.Security system/ D manual

The immobilization system isdisarmed when the ignition is placedin ACC/ACCESSORY or ON/RUN/START and a valid transmitter isfound in the vehicle.You do not have to manually arm ordisarm the system.The system has one or more RKEtransmitters that are matched to animmobilizer control unit in thevehicle. Only a correctly matchedRKE transmitter starts the vehicle.The vehicle may not start if the RKEtransmitter is damaged.If the engine does not start and thesecurity light comes on, there maybe a problem with the immobilizersystem. Press the ENGINE START/STOP button again.If the vehicle does not start and theRKE transmitter appears to beundamaged, try another RKEtransmitter. Or, place the transmitterin the transmitter pocket. See“NOREMOTE DETECTED”underKeyand Lock Messages on page 5-38.Check the fuse. SeeFuses onpage 10-39. If the engine still doesnot start with the other transmitter,the vehicle needs service. If theengine does start, the firsttransmitter may be faulty. See yourdealer or have a new RKEtransmitter programmed to thevehicle.The immobilizer system can learnnew or replacement RKEtransmitters. Up to eight RKEtransmitters can be programmed forthe vehicle. To program additionaltransmitters, see“ProgrammingTransmitters to the Vehicle”underRemote Keyless Entry (RKE)System Operation on page 2-3.Do not leave the key or device thatdisarms or deactivates thetheft-deterrent system in the vehicle.
