Question about 2005 Chevrolet Corvette
DBS is directly related to the requirement that all 2005 manual transmission cars must be placed in reverse for a proper shutdown of the electronics.
Assuming that you always shift to reverse when shutting down, DBSrefers to an unexplained battery drain on properly shut down cars, and typically occurs within 48 hours of the car being turned off.
If this is the cause of your problems, rather than just a weak battery, GM has issued a TSB that calls for a reflash of the BCM, or Body Control Module. This reflash has been completely successful in addressing the problem. I don't have the TSB # handy, but any dealer should be able to find it in their computer database. Or, you can go to www.alldatadiy.com and click on technical service bulletins and recalls, enter your vehicle info and see all tsb's for your it.
Good Luck!! A 4 TUMBS rate for this post will be appreciated!! Thank you for using FixYa.
