    Hi Guys, hope all is good with you all. At last, had some time to have a go at the C 4 Corvette. Actually found the ALCL connector hidden behind the radio. Prior to finding it, I used some Halfords electrical cleaner to clean the MAF sensor. The car ran better after this but Service engine soon light came on after 10 minutes ticking over in my drive .After finding the ALCL link, I disconnected the battery for 10 minutes or so to reset the ECU. After reconnecting, I ran the car for around 5 minutes and then turned it off. I then bridged terminals A and B to check any stored fault codes. Code 12 flashed 3 times and then repeated which means no stored codes. Next move is to take the car out and see if( service engine soon) light comes on again with associated bad misfiring as before. I hope the problem is resolved. Will post again after running car on the road.

    Thats great news, hopefully the fault has cleared and stays away. At least you know where the connector is now to read out any future codes.

    Took the C4 out today. Did about 10 miles and it did not miss a beat, and (service engine soon ) stayed off. I stopped to admire our new carrier and have a cup of tea. About 20 minutes later, I headed for home and as I passed Fort Widley, Service engine soon light came back on and the car started to misfire and instant fuel reading dropped from plus 20 mpg down 8 or 9 mpg. It was possible to accelerate and the mpg figure returned to over 20 mpg. I drove home and went to the fault code procedure. It came up with 12 which means no fault codes stored in ECU. I took the car out again and drove at 70 mph up the A3M I turned around at the Hogs Lodge and drove back down the A3M. The service engine light came on again . Loss of power, misfires, and MPG back to single figures. I accelerated out of the misfires and as before the MPG rose to plus 20 but light stayed on. It seems that the engine is over fuelling at low revs(up to 2000 rpm) . It seems strange that when the ignition is switched off and then on again, the service engine soon light goes off and stays off for a period of time and the fault does not rear its head. I am beginning to suspect that the MAF sensor is possibly at fault. Any thoughts any-one?.

    When you were driving down the A3M and the SES light came on, what were you doing?
    Accelerating, braking or just cruising?

    EGR. Either disconnect it or fit a block off plate under the valve.

    Hi All. C4 problems sorted at last. I found the test block behind the radio, but it did not throw up any fault codes. After a lot of deliberation, I came to the conclusion that it was either the ECM or MAF. As Keith at Eurovettes had an ECM in stock, I gave that a try. Got C& S garage to fit it and it seems to have done the trick. Car ran well on test drive and did not miss a beat. Next job, stop water getting in around the removable roof.
