In this video I use the power of visual inspection to diagnose a 2016 Buick Enclave. I was pretty easy to "see" where the problem was with the ABS and blind spot detection system. -Enjoy!

    ON-clave – 🙂 That's officially from Buick BTW

    Enclave comes from French enclaver, meaning "to enclose," which itself is based on the Latin noun clavis, meaning "key."

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrBrentpenney says:

    can you disable the blind side option on a 2016 Buick Enclave? light is on all the time.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerald Thomas says:

    You just made my argument about electric and “autonomous” vehicles in the salt belt. 🤷🏾‍♂️ How’s that going to work out??

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rochester Tommy says:

    Ever seen this cause an intermittent no start??

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ANGELINA ALEGRIA says:

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sherdina long says:

    What kind of mechanic are you when I ask no one knows how to do this job and have the stabilizer traction light on my Buick I live in Clayton County ga

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Suzy Q says:

    Exactly,my issue driving on 94 frwy in Detroit hometown & hit a bump not a pothole. Now,my stabilitrak traction control is off.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Montrois says:

    Just wondering if you replace the abs module on a 2009 buick lacrosse. Do they need to be reprogrammed? Live in Rochester not to far from you. Love your videos. Always good shit you show. Some people dont get the shit that we go through living in NY.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mdcorman D says:

    no cap but recognized the voice almost had me fooled Eric

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Angie Torres says:

    Excellent Video clip! Forgive me for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you ever tried – Trentvorty Safe Vehicle Theorem (google it)? It is a good one of a kind product for discovering how to repair your car the simple way minus the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my work colleague at last got great success with it.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars doubleoddbuck00 says:

    This is the exact video I needed to see where that Service Side Detection module is located… Thx!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars King David says:

    He said It's Swole! Going to the Gym! Stop being a WussBag and Turn the Camera off we get Nasty! 🤣🤣 Why have I not found these Videos til now! 🤣

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars King Israel says:

    All it takes is just to pause the camera and cuss at it the way you really wanted to. Works every time 😂

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike aldano says:

    Where's part 2

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dad2ski says:

    That was incredibly helpful; I’m fairly certain I’m going to have to bring mine in to my local mechanic as my side detection needs service light is on I don’t have the software to reset, thanks for saving me the time in diagnosing this.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr. Anderson says:

    You should get us a laser pointer!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Hughart says:

    Couldn't it be sealed with silicone to prevent this from happening again? BTW hello from Arkansas.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sagittarius 88 says:

    Those warning lights are the least of that vehicle's problems. The fun really starts when the timing codes start showing up, which for that engine, is inevitable.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frank campbell says:

    put the hat back on!!!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chandler Johnson says:

    what kind of code reader do you use?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars parochial2356 says:

    I get that great GM feeling by not owning one………

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ro Tombs says:

    I’d like to make an appointment. Do you have a website? Will someone answer if I call?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ro Tombs says:

    Eric I need your phone number to schedule an appointment. I mistakenly reached someone in Virginia yesterday.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Daniel says:

    Who's cutting your hair looks pretty good

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sutton Coldfield says:

    I settled down to enjoy viewing some hi-tech electrical diagnosis, wiring, scopes, waveform analysis and the like.
    Must take notes for the exam later.
    Conclusions – it's rusty and it's broke.

    Billy Idol!

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars threeputtpar says:

    Just went though this with my 2014 Acadia. Why don't you let your customers know that these are under a full recall and the whole sensor and wiring system is replaced free? Plus there's a new covering for the sensors so it doesn't happen again.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Iniguez says:

    Outstanding Eric!
    Keep up the great work !
    24 years in the field and I have to say … you are the best!

    Keep up the great work ..ooh by the way bout time your wearing the proper PPE”s /latex gloves

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick von Schwedler says:

    Hey Eric, you look different. Did you trim your eyebrows or something?

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars monsterq6 says:

    Keep giving em the beans!!!

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Oakhill says:

    I LOVE the way Eric says, "with the big three-six." I remember the 7.5 liter Oldsmobile Rocket V8 engine. That engine was more that two times as big as this engine. In those days the 3.6 liter engine was the SMALL engine for weaklings who were afraid of power. check the Wikipedia article "Oldsmobile V8 engine".
