GM issued a technical service bulletin in January 2006, later revised in October 2007 (bulletin no. 06-02-35-002B) concerning ESC problems in MY 2005 and 2006 Chevrolet corvette vehicles with the telescoping steering wheel option.the bulletin was intended to correct a fretting corrosion problem with the steering wheel position sensor connector C202. An engineering analysis has been opened (EA09-002) to continue to asses the scope, frequency, and safety-related consequences of the alleged defect.
