problem #8

Corvette 8-cyl

  • 33,343 miles


Service active handling system error appears on the dash and a bell sounds for no apparent reason. This has happened over 6 times in the 4 years that we have owned this 2007 Corvette starting in Sept 08. We have taken it in 6 times to be fixed. They say the computer shows code C0710 and they replaced the steering wheel position E7690 sensor five times. The last time this happened, the steering wheel jerked from side to side and scared the crap out of my wife. Fortunately she was driving at a low speed. They said they replaced the steering wheel position sensor connector retaining clip. Come to find out, there has been a GM service bulletin #060235002B out on this condition since Oct 19, 2007. We were never informed of this fact. We found out by going to the Corvette forum after this last incident. They also said the "fix" was not covered under my major guard GM protection plan, but they didn't charge me because I had brought it to them 6 times for the same problem. How magnanimous of them! this needs to be a recall to protect peoples lives. I just hope what they did fixes it, but I am doubtful! here is the link to the Corvette forum on this problem: updated 03/15/11 updated 1/5/12

2007 Corvette 41,000 miles. "service active handling systems" keeps coming on.. on the dic. When this happens the brake lights get stuck in the "on position" I have almost been rear ended twice because of this. I have had the swps and brake switch replaced twice. I have had the brake switch recalibrated and I have installed the orange comb GM used on the sw wiring harness. Still not fixed. Updated 03/03/11

My car is a 2007 Chevrolet Corvette the exact same thing that is detail on one of your current recalls happened to me and now the dealer does not want to fix it because it is not the year the recall is this is the recall im referring to: Vehicle make / model: Model year(s): Chevrolet / Corvette 2005-2006 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NHTSA campaign id number: 10V172000 summary: GM is recalling certain model year 2005 and 2006 Chevrolet Corvette passenger cars manufactured between March 2004 and January 2006 equipped with a tilt and telescoping steering column (RPO N37). In rare cases, repeated movement of the steering column may cause a signal interruption within the column. If this occurs, the message, "service active handling system" will appear in the driver information center, and one or more of the brakes may apply, possibly causing the vehicle to pull to the right or left.

2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06." Service active handling" message appears on instrument cluster at random intervals. Sometimes message precedes an application of one or both front brakes while vehicle is in motion causing a very dangerous driving scenario. The vehicle has only 3800 miles and has been returned to the dealership (lone star Chevrolet..houston, Texas) one before for a fix. A sleeve was installed in the steering column as per a GM directive. The problem returned within 500 miles of driving. I have asked the service department to remove the active handling from the cars computer and they say they cannot. The vehicle is unsafe to operate with this issue if the brakes are applied. I have discussed this issue with numerous other corvette owners (online at the corvette forum) who have also experienced this same issue and only a few have had the problem finally corrected. Others, like myself, must continue to take the vehicles back for another fix.

There is an error message on the dash of my 2007 Corvette that says "service active handling system." I understand this is a common defect. See investigation number EA09-002. I notice a negative change in the cars braking and handling abilities. I understand that this problem could result in a serious accident.

2007 Chevy Corvette 40K miles getting sporadic "service active handling" warning on driver information center. No crash (yet). I'm merely reporting a safety concern that is apparently already under investigation.

This complaint is regarding a stock 2007 Chevrolet Corvette, upon starting the vehicle and slowly driving down a road the car lost control and went left barely missing a curb. The reason for this complaint is that the traction control system or stability seems as though its off and says in the computer that its turning on after the incident happened to me about 3 times this last one causing considerable damage to my underbody. Something needs to be checked in the computer of the car or any electrical components. This issue does not happen all the time, therefore there was alot of time inbetween each incident, I don't know if this is a defect but it is certainly not good if other people are having these problems as I am.
