If when you try to check ECM codes on a 1994 Corvette it fails to connect and now the check engine light goes on-and-off and the car is running rich could it be your ECM went bad?

Flashing check engine lights on GM vehicles indicate cylinder misfire. There are many reasons an engine may "run rich" but bad fuel/air mixtures will cause cylinder misfires. Also, unlike other trouble codes that cause the engine light to stay on, misfire detects are the only cause of a flashing MIL(malfunction indicator lamp). Therefore the ECM will read "blank" when you scan it. You may want to look at spark plugs and wires. O2 sensors may also be the culprit. Check your intake as well, if the engine isn't getting enough air, it may flood itself with more fuel to compensate for the power loss. And that will cause it to "run rich".

Depends on what year Corvette and what engine in that Corvette. It varies from year-to-year.

YES IT WILL not only on a 1994 but it happened to my 1988 corvette and the more that you try to start it the more damage you do to the gear on the distributor shaft which in my case runs the oil pump.gear was destroyed .you must then give many oil changes without running the engine to try to get the broken pieces out of the engine OR ELSE when you do get it running you will destroy the engine !!

Connect the positive cable to the positive battery post on the donor car and on the Corvette. Connect the negative cable to some metal part of each vehicle, such as the engine. Be careful of the fan blades on each car. Let the donor car run for approximately 15 minutes to put a slight charge in the battery on the Corvette before you attempt to start it. Start the Corvette and as soon as it starts disconnect the battery cables.
