Probably not, but you should install a fully charged battery first. Trying to start a car with a minimally charged battery can fire off all kinds of warning indicators that could be false. Also run a search in the C4 Tech forums at the Corvette Action Center: http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/forums/1997-2004-corvettes/
