Thanks for the feedback guys. Its good to know that its not a typical problem. I will look at the wires when I pick it up tomorrow or Tuesday. Its definitely not my mechanic who is working on it, just the dealer closest to where it died. The dealer doesn't have a belt in stock and so is waiting for one to come in via fedX. Then I have a 3 h drive to get it.
I can easily believe its just human error.
I'd be real cautious of spliced wires.
It's one thing if the wire is supplying voltage, but if it's a signal/freq then over time the splice can cause resistance and you end up with weird errors.
I'd check this out and if need be demand the wire(s) be replaced end to end.
This is a true story, when my '94 ZR-1 was about 3 months old a dealer chopped the main wiring harness in half running along the outside of firewall then spliced every wire back.
Well sure as Sh&^t a few months later all kinds of weird goings on.
The guys at Team Corvette in Warren at the tech center brought the car to the tech center and when they saw what the dealer did had a Sh*&T fit to say the least.
Any splice with these electronics can cause values to change on the signal, low voltage, etc as the splice ages or the weather causes changes or from stress on the wire.
No way can it be your fault and I'd say tell them it's a new car and you want it properly fixed or make 3 trips to that dealer for weird problems and then go lemon law the car.
That's all you need down the road for the hack job to cause the drive by wire to F up while your in heavy traffic.
Hey it's a Corvette not a fricking rive burner, fix it right.. Dang that pisses me off, brings back old memories [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif[/img]
