If your battery is on the way out, you won't need a flashing light to tell you. It will turn over the engine slower than before. I'd check all the connections for the charger first.

Really? Did you ever track the prices of C1 or C2 from when they were new?

I'd also recommend Mike if you're buying a used Vette.
I did, bought my 2014 Z51 from him back in 2016. Traveled 300 miles to get it, but it was worth it.
