Question about 1996 Chevrolet Corvette
Stop by any good auto parts store (IE: Autozone, Advance, etc...) and have them do a OBII scan & have them do a hard reset with scanner. If light comes back, get list if codes/faults and start there. OBCs get easily "confused" with multiple faults (especially when car sits for long periods) RE: Temp issue, check relays and make sure there is no condensation/corrosion on terminals.

It's a 96 so it is a OBDII, what are the codes? Why would you get a CEL if the issue was the climate control? Low voltage after start would be an issue with the ECM since all the sensors and various modules are affected by baseline voltage. Check voltage when the car has sat overnight, is should be about 12.5 volts. Start it, voltage should read close to 15 volts and drop down to 14-14.5 at idle after a few minutes. You should get these readings at the battery and the back positive post on the alternator. If you got the CEL after you disconnected the battery, then you have an issue that will not be resolved until you fix the issue, and you need to have the ECM scanned for the code.

The climate control head has the ability to do a Self test, did the dealer perform this test? I believe that at over $40,000 in 1996 there is no real "Plain Jane" model Corvette.
