Buick roadmaster: high beam switch replacement – Auto Repair Chat

In a previous video https://youtu.be/5dHnnnQytns I had a look at a Buick Roadmaster that had no high beams and no brake lights. I diagnosed it as a burnt connector and a bad switch. Let's swap it out and see if it works. -Enjoy!

    Eric you are correct. It doesn’t matter what other people think when it comes to how you decide to connect your wires, if it works, then it’s repaired. Keep doing what you are doing. Very enjoyable and knowledgeable you tube videos and an honest technician to boot. Great job.

    I once pulled the turn signal indicator gearshift plastic off a 78 gmc pickup. I did this back in the 80's when the column gear shift failed. I have never been more disappointed in engineers in my life. Hundreds and hundreds of components and a small thin plastic key to shift a long metal gearshift lever. I had to fab up a metal complicated key to shift with and finally put in a funky floor shift. The engineers needed drug into the street and shot.

    When I was a kid I LOVED those contortion jobs that required me to assemble a Rubik's Cube with one hand upside down blindfolded. Now that I'm so old everything hurts, it's painful just to watch this.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Bill Malec says:

    I've watched maybe 2 Chris Fix and thought he was a hack. Watched a few Scotty what's his name and thought he was more click bait in person than in his titles.
    You sir are the real deal.

    Couldn't find a more recent video to comment on, so I'll do it here. Just ran across your engine removal and install videos, watched the Dodge Caravan ones last night, currently watching the Chevy pickup videos, wanted to say that these videos are great, there's not much you edit out and that's what is so good, I for one want to see the removal of everything. These are great for learning, when I was younger we use to do all this outside and use a tree limb and come along to hoist it out, for people who have never pulled a motor, these videos are alot better than others, great work Eric O.

    "… the other half would be pissed i didnt use a solder seal connector" – ceramic mold with thermite works great too

    Thanks or the props. I usually climb inside the dash.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DJM says:

    What sets you apart from the rest is that you make sure it " looks good" besides working the way it should. Not too many mechanics care about that. Well done!
