    Official C7 Corvette Issue/Resolution Thread

    At the request of several of you... This will get all of the issues together in one location and allow other owners and would be owners to learn about the issues that owners are experiencing or discovering.

    What's allowed:

    Factual accounts of issues you encounter as a real owner of a real car. Provide as much detail, pictures, and documentation as you are able to talk about the issue.

    Factual accounts or updates regarding resolution of issues that you or your dealer provided to solve a problem with your Stingray. If you solve a problem and post a separate update, please edit your original post that it was resolved and reference the post with the update if possible.


    What's not allowed (This will be strictly enforced):

    Anecdotal comments about first year models.
    Comments about other model year Corvettes (even if they may relate to current equipment.)
    Stories or issues you read about on other forums.
    Posting about a problem "your friend" had with their car.
    Posting that "your car is fine" or "I didn't have that problem."


    The intent of this thread is to collect data and provide information for people who own a 2014 Corvette Stingray. Hopefully we will see both problems and resolutions and allow a place for folks to learn how to deal with issues that they encounter. If you can provide content information (equipment group, options, etc.) about your car that would be welcome. If you can provide photos of the issue or video of the behavior, that would be welcome. If are willing to post your VIN number, that would be helpful so that others with VIN's in a nearby range can relate.

    Let's see if we can keep this thread on topic and make it a useful place for new and would be owners to learn what is going on.

    Folks we need to start using this thread to report what issues may be affecting our owners and what is being done to correct them. Please keep the guidelines above in mind when posting. This thread will give our Chevy Customer Folks a thread to keep an eye on, and not have to look all over the forum for items they can help you with.

    Hello my name is Richard I own a 2014 Stingray.
    I am new to this forum but, wanted to let everyone know about an issue my 2014 Stingray had and was repaired.
    I picked up my Z51 automatic ...back in September, my car is one of the first 700 cars delivered.
    Everything was fine for the first 480 miles but then, I started to notice a rattling noise when I was idling.
    The noise was loud enough I could hear it with the top in and widows up.
    I took the car in to my local dealer and after a few hours I was told although they could hear the noise...nothing was loose.
    I was then told there just have not been enough Stingray deliveries to know if the problem was normal or not normal or if anything could be done to solve the issue..
    I contacted Chevrolet customer assistance and explained my problem, Chevrolet was very interested and quickly move me up the channels.
    I was contacted by the Service manager who let me know an engineer from the Corvette plant would be coming to Florida to listen to my car.
    I asked the service manager if he could forward a short video to the engineer so he could listen to the problem before he arrived.
    Below is a copy of my video.




    Then I received another call from the service manager as a part had been sent from the plant .....would I come in?

    when I arrived he walked me over to the garage to show me the part....to my surprise it was about 6 feet long and 2 feet around.
    He told me the part was a Driveline support torque tube.
    I am not technician so, to put in simple terms this part contains the driveshaft wrapped in a tube sorry I can not be more specific then that.
    Feel free to do you own research.
    I did not want to post anything until after the repair which is now done.... (two days) and many thousands in warranty repair costs but the noise is gone.....
    at least for now. Since this issue did not happen right away I will have to wait and see.
    I hope this helps someone who it hearing a rattling noise that was not there before ...you are not crazy GM may have an issue.
    I would be glad to provide repairs orders,(as well as names of people with-in the service department that can be called) to the administrator of this site as proof this is a genuine issue.
    Richard

    Well a month ago I got a service rear end message pop up on the dash. I took it to the dealer & found out npt the low oil level problem but differential isn't locking.
    They called GM & was told to replace the differential computer & the hydraulic pump. After that it worked fine for the last month but I just got the message again. I will be calling the dealer tomorrow & keep you guys informed.

    Man...Sorry to hear this! Were they able to tell you anything about the failure mode for the first e-diff, like mechanical failure or ECU issues? Good luck and keep us posted, please add an entry into the E-Diff thread.

    I am also new to the forum and my name is Gerry
    I was asked to re post this to get in the correct Thread.
    Picked up my LT2 convertible C7 Dec 30. Drove it about a hour and lost voice control button on steering wheel blue tooth to my phone makes a loud clicking noise and drops my cell call... Navigation voice makes a loud clicking noise also when giving turn commands.. XM/FM radio stops working and seems to reboot about every 10 min. Random reboots to corvette screen. Sometimes the clock time changes back to 12:XX and then goes back to the correct time Dealer told me to remove all HD radio stations and try... turn off HD setting It made no changes ... They said Chevrolet says its a software problem.. And they are looking for a fix ... No resolution date provided... So my troubleshooting past tells me this could be a combo hardware software problem and they have been messing with it for the past 3 months... I will be on the phone Monday calling GM and expecting some one to give me something other than it's a software problem. I will try to update with anything I get back from Chevrolet.

    01/08/14
    Update I have been on the phone with GM support and they say that they are still working on the problem .. They did get back to me this morning and they have a software download that might improve my problems and I will take my C7 in tomorrow and they will download it for me.. I am not happy with the Chevrolet and how they are handling this. They say it is software and will not replace my nav system..
    I say if it's software provide me with a fix.. or start troubleshooting the problem.. I still think that this could be a hardware issue and they don't care to come out with it now.. I say if you have a H/W problem
    admit to it and get on with a fix.

    I would like to suggest the the factory look into this problem in the diagnostic testing that they run after the car is built.. might be the RC but that's only a WAG on my part. BTW the battery reset corrected my problems after factory support requested Dealer do this.. they also updated with new software after 2 weeks. That's not to say that this is the total fix for the problem and root cause needs to be found but this is a Workaround. I will have to see how long it lasts but 505moters reports his power reset only corrected his problems since early November.

    Does anyone know how the infotainment software update works? Does GM push update thru on star or we have to manually download updates and how do we know when they are available?

    From my understanding, the dealership needs to flash the rom.

    At this point it is dealer only. I have read where a dealers service dept. told an owner that it may take up to two hours to do. I wish I understood why it would take this long to accomplish?

    edit: It seems that the 2 hr. figure was because the dealer had issues with the download. It appears it should only take a 1/2 hour or so depending on the individual who is doing the re-flash.

    Jan 7. New to the site and first post. I have about 2000 miles on my C7 and a few problems.
    1- Oil leak at the reverse light switch on manual tranny. Switch replaced.
    2- Right steering wheel control inoperative intermittently and no blue tooth connection: Bulletin #PIC5948. I am told software is being created but not yet available. The bulletin didn't say anything about the following, my emergency brake also released when I started the car during this problem. So it may be connected? Everything is working correctly at present, but keep it in gear when parked.
    3- Instrument panel brightness too low. Chevy has a fix for this, but I haven’t gone back yet for the software update.
    Bob
