Yes, of course it can be "locked". However, if the car is "locked", it never UNlocks until the moment you press the 'open' button on the door -- at which point the car calls out to see if a known fob...

Totally agree. Corvette production cannot be sustained as a sub-10,000 units a year car. GM would then kill it because of "slow sales". There is a reason GM produces the Stingray as well as the...

A *used* Z06 -- sure, test drives should be no problem, given a qualified potential buyer.

Good thought.

Perhaps he's holding down the button far too long (Service mode requires a 10 second push) at shut down, instead of just a normal press and release?
Or perhaps the start button is...
