1998 corvette will not start says reduced power
If the security light is blinking it will not start. The security system needs to be reset. You will have to have a fully charged battery to reset the system. With a full charged battery turn the ignition forward until the warning lights come on and leave the key in the on position for 15min. Turn key off and wait 10sec. then try and start.You may have to perform this procedure a couple of times, however, it is usually successful the first try. The reduced power light can be set by a low voltage/poor charge battery

When i use my windsheid
try this steps to adjust your wiper.
the keys in the ignition, turn the keys to accessory mode
(key-on/engine off), and make sure the wiper motor switch is in the off
position. Turn the ignition switch to the off position and remove the
keys. The wiper arms are now in their parked position, although may not
be properly aligned.
the bottom of the compromised wiper blade arm. You may have to open the
hood or remove the wiper arm cowling (refer to the owners manual for
the removal of the cowling on your specific vehicle if required).
the retaining nut at the bottom of the wiper arm assembly. Some models
will have a protective plastic cap covering the nut. Other vehicles may
have a hinged cover that is part of the wiper arm itself. Pry the cap
off with a straight-edge screwdriver or unsnap the hinged cover by
prying it up from the bottom of the wiper arm with the screwdriver to
reveal the retaining nut.
4. Hold the wiper arm stable with one hand and remove the nut with the ratchet and a socket with the other.
5. wiggle the wiper arm gently with one hand while gently prying the base of the arm off the splinter wiper arm stud. The stud has a small spline that holds the wiper arm in the correct position unless otherwise compromised. The wiper arm will feel secured to the stud, but the combination of wiggling gently and prying with the screwdriver will work to remove the arm.
6. Place the arm back into the splined wiper arm stud by positioning it in the off position. some vehicles may have a wiper arms stop that the arm rests in the off position. If so, make sure that the wiper arm is resting against the wiper arm stop when replacing it on the stud.
7. Replace the retaining nut and tighten with the ratchet socket. repaet this procedure with the other wiper arm if desired.
8. use 2 sets of pliers to bend the wiper arm back into position if the wiper arm has been bent. Hold the wiper arm with one set of pliers to anchor it and use the other set to bend it so the wiper is perpendicular to the windshield. If the arm is bent too badly,replacing the wiper arm maybe a more viable option.
9. Inspect the wiper blades.check them for tears in the rubber blades, dry cracking or flimsiness.Replace the wiper blades if necessary.

Service vehicle soon?
any number of things can cause that, like an old/dirty oxygen sensor. some things aren't worth fixing while others are, but don't sweat it as long as all your other gauges are in the green and your car still runs, I've run cars for years with engine lights on, its certainly not something to rush anywhere for.
