Can't get my 99 manual Trans FRC to go into competition mode. Held the button down for awhile at a dead stop with no luck. BCM issue?

Did it used to work? Did you check your tire pressure? (Low pressure will not let it turn on)
Could also be a tire pressure sensor not reporting. You'll figure it out, good luck!

Do you have the AH option?

The Active Handling System, RPO JL4, debuted on the 1998 Corvette and became standard equipment on the 2001 model.

Is your AH already off/disabled due to codes? If it is not enabled due to codes, you can't change its mode....

Tire pressure does not prevent engaging comp mode (at least on my 99). I don't even have sensors installed and comp mode works as it should.
