2009 corvette 1st start this year idles rough

My 2009 only has 14,000 miles and it is now idling rough with a lot of loss power.
Also the active traction handling service light is on.

HELP would be greatly appreciated.

I missed your ask for help last night.

Hook up a scanner if you can and check for DTC codes.
Guys at Advanced Auto, O'Reilley Auto, & The Zoo AutoZone Ok.
Try and get somebody older 40-80.
Got experience.

It may be a Bad ignition wire.
Mouse chewed on it during winter storage.

A bad plugged fuel filter.
Old gasoline went sour.

Fuel pressure low below factory spec.

The number 8 cylinder is where I run my charger cable by from underneath the vette into the engine compartment for the winter.
I must have pulled out the spark plug wire from the ignition coil.
I plugged it back in and I now have a wild beast again.
Also the traction control is fully operational again as designed.

Life is good.

Thanks for your help.
