The first one: P0101 indicated a mass air flow meter problem.

the second one: P1221 doesn't show on the list. Might you have miscounted the flashes showing the code?

...Here's a list of all the codes:

....and welcome btw -- Glad to have you along. Let us know how the 'vette shopping goes.

P1221 comes up as a Throttle Position sensor from my source :D

Much better than an fault with the active handling system, although parts are still available for the '02 if something like that should go whereas the '99-'00 cars are left hanging in the wind (Steering wheel position sensor)......ask me how I know.... :(

Best way to fix these codes are with a little R&R and then clear the codes. If the car has an aftermarket air filter, it may just have oil on it from when the owner last cleaned the filter, so the MAF may just need a cleaning. This a a very common problem from people over oiling their filters.

Anyway, welcome to the forum!!!! Let us know if you find much else for sale or if you decide to go with this one!

Another BC/Langley Vette on here would be great.

Hey guys I bought a 1999 corvette and i new it had a few problems but now it's stuck in reduce engine power mode, and when you turn key on ac the dash and lights flicker, also it doesn't always turn dash on you have to turn the key on back and forth a bunch of times for it to initialize
