Condescend much?

Please school me on what only a Corvette Tech knows, that can't be known by a caring mechanic at the average Chevy or even Buick/GMC dealer (with all their support info).

I wave at every one I see regardless of generation. I'm not even subtle about it-- I stick my hand straight up and go for it!

If you put the fob in your pocket w/ buttons facing toward you with nothing (keys, coins, etc...) between you and fob, this will never happen again.
