    Have you tried disconnecting the battery to let the computer reset? Leave it disconnected for a few minutes and see what happens.

    Done that a few times. Then the computer seems to work and I can toggle through the buttons on the right of the dash. But after 20-30 minutes the computer seems to get a mind of its own and the buttons don't work anymore.

    When I was looking into getting a corvette I did a lot of research on what goes wrong with them.

    Things like this on the C5 seem to always be attributed to some sort of bad ground.

    Try doing some searching on the corvette specific forums...

    Good Luck!
