Electrical problem can be the most frustrating and difficult to diagnois especially when you are not phsyically at the vehicle. I will attempt to point you in the direction you should be looking. Right off the bat it sounds as if you are running low on power when the demand is high. First thing to suspect is the battery. For some reason it is low on electrical power.
Next thing is to figure out why. The first thing I would check are the cable ends. Are they corroded? It may not look as if the are, but they still could be. Clean them thouroghly.At times, when they are corroded that may be enough to stop the flow of current from the alternator to keep the battery charged up. If they look good, you may want to put your battery on a charger. Pay attention to the meter and see how much the battery is down. If it taking a lot of charge it could be it needs replacing, but charge it up and see how it works. Remember when charging a battery, first remove the caps and see if the cells are low on water. If they are your battery is probably the culprit. When a battery starts using water it's usually because some of the plates have over heated and warped, which causes them to touch each other and short out. BTW, when charging a battery make sure you remove the caps during charging. So leave them off after you check the water, AND if you need water use only distilled water. You can buy it just about anywhere, grocery store, Walmart, KMart, etc.
Check your altanator belt and make sure it is tight and not streached out. That could also be why the battery is not keeping up with the demand.
If that dosen't cure it, next take your battery in and have it tested and see if it is up to snuff. I hope this helps you and please let me know through your rating of this advice.

I dont know much about corvettes But if the voltage regulator is in the altenator it could be sticking drawing voltage even if the car is not running. Dis connect the plug in overnight and see if it starts in the morning if it does the regulator is sticking shut replace the alternator

It could be a bad coil pack breaking down as the temp goes up It could be a catalatic converter plugged up It could be a number of sensors. You said the engine light has been on take it somewhere and find out what code turned on the light even if the light is not on the code is stored
