Pull key and wait.....

In 2 weeks of daily driving, I've had the "pull key and wait 10 seconds" message 3 times but nothing about servicing the column lock. If I wipe the key and restart, everything is fine. I know sometimes the "pull key" warning is a precursor to the column lock issue, but is it ALWAYS?

I don't mind installing the CLB and it seems simple enough, but will that correct the issue or is it possible something else is also going on?

don't wait... and don't drive the car unless you want stuck in some parking lot.

Happened to me at a car show 4 hours away. Thank goodness God was on my side. There was a fellow corvette owner at the car show who had the kit. he actually carried an extra kit with him every where. Sold it to me for cost.

I had to repair mine in a parking lot in front of a gas station. Locked up at the pump. Was able to push it forward next to front of store.

sure... you yours might be the rare one that doesn't brake... really wanna test that?

Yea yea. It's on the way. Even if I don't have time to install it, keeping in the car will make me feel better. Yes, I know it only takes about an hour, but even so, the next week is a bit overbooked.

You do realize that your car can read your post, right? She don't like playing second fiddle to anything.

So even with the CLB installed (the steering will moves side to side even with the key out) I still get the occasional "pull key and wait" message. What's up now?

If you guys get stuck with this problem it is your own fault. Honestly. What do you do when the starter motor doesn't work? turn the key and have someone rap on the starter and it starts. When you have a bad fuel pump what do you do? supply power to the pump and wrap on the bottom of the gas tank. When you have a failed power window, you pull the door card and wrap on the body of the motor and bam the window starts working. If none of you think to take the butt end of a screwdriver and wrap on the housing of the column lock motor while turning the key before you call a tow truck well then hopefully the amount of the bill will force a change the next time you get stuck with an electric motor with a bad segment on the commutator.

Also are all of you guys removing the lockplate from the colum like you are supposed to? Or nobody is pulling the wheel and swapping the lockplate. you should be removing this..



and installing this..



While the bypass relay will keep the warning from coming on, This is how we keep the column from locking while we drive.

Also problems with the key or rather the pellet in the key or the ignition lock cylinder's ability to read the resistance of that pellet in the key or the bcm failing can also cause the pull key wait 10 sec. message.

Dang Wiz, you're breaking out the beating stick tonight!

In his defense, he inherited the problem so I won't be hard on him. However, it is probably better if he fully understands the issue. My thread on the column lock issue has more information about this subject than any that I have seen so I will direct him to it. A guy by the name of Paul Koerner, who's known in the Corvette community as C4C5 Specialist (that's his name on this forum too), put out two excellent videos at one of his seminars about the column lock issue and how to resolve it. The battery in the car is a significant part of the issue. These videos are definitely a must watch for those affected with this issue, or who have a car that can be affected with this issue.

XQIZT, first, the steering wheel should NO LONGER be locking if the third recall was completed on your car. That's a good thing. GM put out 3 different TSB's for dealerships to resolve this issue. Three, because the first two didn't get it right. I will include what I believe was the last one for your reading entertainment only. The more you know about this issue, the better for you. Also, here's a link to my VAT key replacement thread. You can never have too many spare keys sitting around. I have like 5 of them.

Your pull key message could be related to the key as Wiz pointed out or the battery. Look at that CLB thread. If you haven't read that puppy all the way through, you will garner a LOT of info by doing so.

Here are the two documents of interest. Make sure that you choose the option to download THROUGH your browser (NOT the red button).

Junk, I have seen and read a bunch of threads with replies and comments by c4c5 specialist. his avatar is I am guessing his daughter leaning against his arm with c4 and c5 cross flag tats. He really knows his stuff. I trust the things I read from him.

Yes, that's him. The guy is like the E.F. Hutton of Corvette knowledge. I really enjoy reading his stuff. He looks at me when I do detailing seminars like I look at him when he does Corvette seminars. We look at each other like, "Dude, you are really into that stuff!"

I just hit 60k miles. Havent had the Column lock bypass done. What milage does it typically fail on?

I like living life on the edge. You know that thrill butterfly feeling you get when you go on a long road trip with no phone reception and knowing that your car may be stranded by a known issue that you dont fix because you cant be bothered wasting an hour.
