A common problem with 1997-2004 Corvettes is a faulty ignition switch steering column lock. The issue is often considered a lack of clearance between the column lock module and the steering column lock plate but the result is that your C5 Corvettes steering column will lock-up at the most inappropriate times. Such as sitting in the parking lot of your favorite restaurant on a date night or in lane 4 of the gas station for a quick fill up. When it happens there is no fix for it. Your column is locked and youre going to be late.

This 1997-2004 Corvette column lock bypass kit is different than what GM provided under warranty or what has been available in the afterrmarket. This kit eliminates the entire column lock system at the body control module (BCM). Includes complete instructions and installation takes approx. 30 minutes. If your 1997-2004 steering column is already locked than you will also need to purchase the unlocker Zip # E-1199. The "unlocker" is designed to provide power to the column lock solenoid to disengage the unit from the locked position.

Note: The 1997-2004 Corvette ignition switch (electrical) can also cause some C5 Corvette column lock issues - Zip Corvette recommends replacing the ignition switch IF column lock issues persist.
