In this video we have a look at a 2002 Buick Regal Supercharged that has a Service Vehicle Soon Light on, ABS and Trac light on with codes C1221, C1225, and C1232 stored in it. We play with a new scan tool, the Launch Diagun IV and the Power Probe IV to make a short diag out of this one. -Enjoy!

    thanks for the help!

    Best video period!! Thank you sir and may the Lord bless you abundantly 🙏 my 88 yr old mom has this problem I'm going to tackle it and a po405 code I'm also going try and repair. She loves her faithful 2003 century. Question for you, will the several lights on the cluster cause anyone to fail an annual safety car inspection? Her po405 low circuit caused a fail but no mention of the lights??

    Was the Brake light on also with the ABS light?

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ricardo Torres says:

    I was wondering what do you charge to check a vehicle? I have a 2015 Buick Encore, my engine light is on. The last I checked i have 3 codes. Don't remember what they were, but it needs work done.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Smith says:

    You said this is typical to GM? My ABS light on been on in my 93 Buick PA for years. Perhaps a bad wire? However, if this is typical to GM then why the F do they not engineer better wires or harnesses whatever? I gotta go Honda Toyota Acura Lexus…enough is enough.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BlakesSite says:

    Im sure the tool is great but the poor user interface makes me skeptical.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars IndigenousAmericanTrucker says:

    So my question is…if my stabilitrak starts going crazy while either sitting still and/or driving and ends with an engine light coming on does that mean that the issue is under the hood or can it still be a sensor on the wheel?

    Cool Beans. Helped me in my situation. Glad your video was available. THANK YOU.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Willis says:

    Does that break in the wire cause the breaks to grab?
    That's what my 2016 Buick Regal does.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars genegeneish says:

    My 99 caddy eldo was going nuts with similar codes disabling 1st gear, traction control, abs and the stability system. I tried to replace wire to LF hub bearing as per service bulletin. Couldnt figure how to take connector at abs apart to replace wires. So i cleaned up connector pins, pluged it in and out a few times, and all codes disappeared and every thing started functioning perfectly.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars New York Metal Detecting says:

    Great video. I have a 2002 Buick Century Custom with the same warning lights on. After watching your video and doing more research I am thinking that I need to replace some wheel speed sensor harness wires. Do you have a full video of this replacement? I understand the side closest to the wheel. I just need to know where it goes to on the other end and if I need anything else besides for just the wheel speed sensor harness. Thank you.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars merlin47181 says:

    South Main Auto Repair LLC I am having an extended cranking issue when the engine is cold with my 2002 Regal LS it cranks for 4 seconds then it’ll start but somedays it will start fine but some other days it stumbles on me when I start it I did change the spark plugs at 89,000km I replaced the fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, cleaned the throttle body cleaned the idle air controller even cleaned the mass air flow sensor in this case it still has a hard time starting sometimes it has an extended crank then it’ll start but as I said somedays it’ll start just fine I would really appreciate if you can give me advice my other guess is the crank sensor & the starter is a little weak so my starter is kinda weak please tell me why am I having an extended cranking issue with my 02 Regal LS? Sincerely Mark (fordmustang98guy)

    Hi Eric, have a question which probably is a bit off; Would you still get a traffic ticket from the police using the diagnostic tool under a distracted driver law? Just wondering? Thanks.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars james corvett says:

    Ive replaced hundreds of these wire harnesses, and prob thousands of the bearing/sensors. seemed to be a major issue with these models back then. nice tool too! Im always leery of the bluetooth/wifi connecting

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryce James says:

    My ABS light has been on for 10 years! I finally just unplugged it recently, stupid option anyway lol

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Toms driveway says:

    That scan tool is 100% an android phone. Still cool though

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J. Ray Redden says:

    How rough are those brakes??😎

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Pilarski says:

    This inspired me to finally fix my 04 Impala ABS light, I knew it was the right front harness from what the scan tool told me. It broke in two places, the first where you typically see it.. the second up near the oil pan, along with the knock sensor wire. Some animal went to town on the wire harness. No more ABS or check engine lights!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raymond Horvatin says:

    You make it look too easy soon I'll be thinking I can do it Ha !

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eremon1 says:

    That scantool looks like an Android phone in weird case. Can you call Cptn. Kirk on that thing? lol

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars never stop learning says:

    Hi Eric. …Roger here from the UK. Always love your videos. What's your real opinion of that Launch Diagun iv compared to say your Launch 2 pad…. can it reprogram or do coding….just your thoughts please.
    Kind regards Roger.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rfoster2323 says:

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wyattoneable says:

    I needed a new DVOM so I went to search the net and found the Power Probe has a combination Power Probe III and a DVOM meter. I ordered it, so you know what I'll be doing on my week off. Nice find there Eric. Experience keeps the jobs moving along and makes for great videos.
