Come along in the shop as we look at two different vehicles both experiencing the same problem. First one is a Buick LeSabre with an ABS Code C1214. The second one is a Chrysler Town & Country with an ABS Code C2200. We also get a little bonus at the end playing with the Autel MS908

    I got an 04 monte with a abs/traction light. I pulled that plug and saw that "wire/vent"
    Thought I was the hero but Unfortunately No.
    Thanks for letting me know about the vent 😌

    Crap electronics from our so-called global network.

    Freaking autels always Freeze During reprogramming 80 percent of the time and then they drive you mad 😠 😡 😤 you know what I mean Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

    Their is modules that can be repaired hust by opening and re-soldering the terminals because of cold soldering from the manufacturing. Check out the you tube video's that show it step by step. all depends on the make and year, my Kelsey unit from 1998 sealed and looks to be not repairable, looks like a hard sealed unit.

    Great job Eric !

    Jeez, just put the friggin seat belt on!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Knorr says:

    The horn is wired through the computer? That is technical suicide.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Mahoney says:

    If you spend 5 hours grinding the screws off why not just remove the entire ABS and ebcm module way faster isn't it?

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    One of 3 repaired cool now how bad that wheel bearing

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Wright says:

    First video I've down voted because it's painful listening to the seat belt dinger on headphones. Also makes it hard to listen to what your saying Eric, and what you say is important!

    Sam and Henry were characters in a radio Sit-Com in the 1920s. They were black characters written and performed by Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll (neither were African American). The characters formed a moving company where Henry was the over-bearing Boss and Sam was the guy who did all the work. They predated Amos n Andy who were also created by Gosden and Correll after Sam and Henry went off the air. Just so you would know…. now, back to the car repairs.

    Test drive at night while using a scan tool with no seat belt do you drink and drive too?

    Love your videos Eric! I live in the rust belt too (MN), i love getting parts from the south or CA. Thanks for the tip here, im not great w abs modules so thank you.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Travis says:

    n ppl say idk how ur such a good mechanic i would have never figured that out, well half the time the computer does most of the work u lol :p thats one of the few things i love about all the tech

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yuma Okamoto says:

    Which Autel model did you use to reprogram the ABS module? I have to replace my ABS module and reprogram a couple of TPMs on my 08 Town and Country. I figured I might as well buy an Autel as an investment to avoid taking it to the stealership. Thanks in advance!!!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chuck Patten says:

    Just wondering why sending the bad module out for rebuilding isn't one of your options? I've done exactly that in the past and found it to be very satisfactory and a decent cost option.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ronald Lehmann says:

    South Main-you know what you are talking about-I learn a lot from you-Thank You

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dam D says:

    Save our Ears with using the seat belts 😉
    If we can do it, you can do it :)))))))))))))))

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ricky Gransee says:

    Kinda makes me want to move next door and rebuild Module's, wiper control boards, and dash circuit boards for you…lol!

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon Crocker says:

    Buckle your seat belt! Your children will appreciate it

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mikey Groves says:

    Let me guess the wheel bearing WAS ACTUALLY A FAULTY ABS CONTROL MODULE TOO!?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ron cash says:

    WHO IS SAM AN HENRY ????????? LOL

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stone Sauer says:

    'There's your problem lady"….for the Love of all that's Holy either put the seatbelt on or shoot that warning bell dinger and put it out of its misery.
    Look how fresh that JeeP hat is !!! As usual another great video & it's much appreciated !

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bridge Puente says:

    Excuse me I have the same problem in a 2008. code c2200, perform voltage tests on pins 1,32, 8 and earth on pins 16,47. all ok then the problem is the module, I have to replace it, here in Mexico it is very expensive. Can I bring the truck running like this without the abs? or could a wheel be blocked if I did not solve the problem? thank you so much.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Bratschi says:

    Wear the damn seatbelt. Plus it made the video annoying. Besides, I like you in one piece as do your wife and kids. 😜

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Topp says:

    I have an 08 Charger. Have the same issue with having to calibrate the steering if the brake/ABS light comes on. It'll do that if I have to disconnect the battery for repairs… it'll come on with reconnect. Basically, start the vehicle with steering straight. Turn all the way to the left, then all the way to the right. Repeat again, and then center. Turn engine off. Turn engine on. Drive the vehicle. Light will go out shortly. If it doesn't, repeat the procedure. Chrysler is just odd. I also have to 'calibrate' the power windows too after disconnect of battery (all the way down, hold button down. All the way up, hold button up. What can I say, it's Mopar).

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sarah Sargent says:

    I think it might be looking at an a utel for us,seems a handy tool for the toolbox.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Usher says:

    There's your problem lady …wheel bearing….😮😲

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnathan Waters says:

    Eric, I understand what you mean completely about "feeling like the grim reaper" some days. I am a Mercedes-Benz & BMW Technician (for the last 12 years) and also independent like you are. I get discouraged sometimes as well and I work on some of the most beautiful and special cars around! I can't imagine what it would be like if I were working on the types of shitboxes you get in the shop on a daily basis… I probably would have offed myself a long time ago. My hat is off to you, with massive respect. You sir, are a hero.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maxx Michael says:

    I had the whole valve assemble crap out….got a used one…and worked great……
    Glad this one was easy.
    Great show…love watching you work….

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Rankin says:

    remove builb done

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars markam campbell says:

    what about the wheel bearing

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Chiodetti says:

    When my wife had her 97 Grand Cherokee, "intermittently," the ABS light would come on, I can't remember the code now, erase the code, it took time to come back. I remember testing the pump motor for excessive current draw, even posting it on iATN. I did replace the module, it seems like most 12 volt motors, the in-rush current was a little high, according to the scope, but the motor had no problems. I could only think the module couldn't handle the current, because the new module had no problems and years later when she got rid of the vehicle the ABS still worked! Go figure! Great 2 for 1 Video!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 85rx7se says:

    That C1214 code is the same as happens on the Corvette … It is caused by a bad relay in the EBCM Module and the relay can be replaced seperately by careful technicians. Of course GM wants to sell you a new module for over $1,000 (The relay itself would be about $10 so just find a shop that does module repairs near you)

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chevy Chase says:

    Shouldn't have to go to the dealer to get reset! Sounds like a monopoly to me which I thought were illegal in the United States!

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Higson says:

    Reminds me of my working ,life!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richfo100 says:

    GREAT JOB YOU DO YOU TAKE TO THE DEALER THEY MAKE A BIG DEAL OUT OF IT NEW CAR ONLY THEY WANT NOT OLD CARS

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron e says:

    I owe you some ice cream or something. I had a 2009 Routan (aka a rebadged Caravan) with C2200. Since no body rebuilds these modules and I had nothing to lose I took mine off and split it along the mold seam for the top. Inside all the board pin connections are press-fit! They don't even attempt to solder them anymore. I put some electronics flux and leaded solder on them and reinstalled it in the van figuring why the heck not. Well it worked, all the brake/abs/trac/esp lights are off and have been for a week. I took pictures if you want to see what the inside of the EBCM/ABM looks like 🙂

    I see what you mean by the bolts being stuck. I freed mine up by putting my shortened T20 3/8" drive socket on them and giving them a good tap with a hammer. It seemed to jar them so they weren't stuck and I was able to unscrew them out. I didn't think that would work since I also live in the 'rust belt'.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Ivey says:

    Is it just me..? Do we see new batteries in all the module failed vehicles..? Can you get the cables back to front when you replace the battery?
    The vent tube is to allow for expansion of the air so as not to draw moisture in… counter intuitive?

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy hanna says:

    I wonder if the Alltel can reflash a used module
