    Did the old ground cable lose its free electrons?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheOnespeedbiker says:

    Using an impact wrench to tighten a battery clamp. You just rock!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Franklin Werren says:

    They could always spend a few pennies to connect the clock to the cell tower time base… or at worst a few dollars for a WWV clock that uses the atomic clock time base…. But that is way too easy!!!

    They should hire a mechanic on the auto design team to be sure any repairs don’t endanger life or limb of said mechanic!!! But common sense was never a strong point of any engineer I have ever met!!!

    I understand parts made in Mexico are not subject to strict quality control.

    Its a ground wire and your better than me cause I would have cut that thing long ago

    I want to call your shop someday and when they answer just say "doodlyDOODLYdoooo"

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Hudick says:

    Why did you jump from a 12mm socket to a 10mm socket and ignore 11mm?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Man Pretty says:

    I thought you were a REAL mechanic? Where is all the cursing? Only a lackie doesn't curse a Cadi. A flashlight to the face is good for at least 15 minutes of sailor quality cursing…

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Garybonz says:

    Yo, Ray, there's 2 ground wires . . .

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Coleman says:

    So I commented a few days ago that the old negative cable looked ok. This morning the Ray gods taught me a lesson. I kid you not, our Escalade was totally dead. While working to jump start it, I saw sparks off the negative cable at the negative terminal. Wouldn't you know it, my cable is bad too! Thanks for the tutorial Ray!

    When it comes to investing, nothing pays off more than educating yourself with the right information from the right source. That's how you get rich.

    Watch out Mustang! You have to be lucky every time you do that……the police only have to be lucky once….LOL

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Kasperski says:

    Check the main connector under the fuse box, I just did the same repair for a friend, replaced the ground cable which is a weak link. I looked at the fuse panel and found corrosion on the two big spade terminals feeding the main fuse box. That made more sense than the ground wire. I cleaned the ground surfaces and applied some grease also. They haven't had a problem since. It had the same symptoms, kept losing power at random times to random accessories.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Salty Explorer says:

    It’s not clean until it’s Ray clean. Click.

    Not a fan of polishing the tin off a lug to where it is now raw copper. Tin won't react like copper to chemicals in the air.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve McRichards says:

    I noticed another possibly related problem: a marine/deep cycle battery is being used in a passenger vehicle. Deep cycle batteries are not designed for passenger vehicle charging system requirements and will harm alternators and reduce the life of the deep cycle battery as opposed to installing the correct battery for the vehicle.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ezraeil says:

    I always wonder what mechanics did to piss of engineers so much, cause this is just sadistic.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars H says:

    Thank you for nice video. Cadillac engine compartments are worst.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zepplin76 says:

    Does anyone else try to blow the slivers of battery terminal off the battery when he leaves it?

    Cept your favorite brake cleen…like aqua velva

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don's Junkmail says:

    Ain't many immune..I got my first check engine light!…that can remember PO303 C1095… Think coil pack…start shot gunnin parts already had plug and wires at least 4 mos ago…I ll quit soapboxing for now…this is Ray's Gravity Show…

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JohnG6 says:

    On newer vehicles do the location of the grounds matter more? Mine is pretty simple. The largest ground cable goes to the block. There's a smaller cable that splits off close to the battery and leads to the inner fender, and then at the rear of the engine there's a short braided strap that connects the back of the cylinder head to the firewall.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars name_ less says:

    Love your videos man! Instant thumbs up when I pull you up! Keep up the good work! Best wishes to you and your fam always! Another good one.

    Also.. I'd have done it. Lol

    That's a helluva lot of aggro just for a couple of cable eyelets. Designers, eh? 😲

    Interesting that you used the term "Whole kit and caboodle"….. not something I would associate with American people.. old English early 19th Century term….

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ARednecksLife says:

    When changing a battery or doing a job like this, why not use an OBD2 backfeed device to keep the memory current in the vehicle??

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wozzle says:

    :))))) About shit myself laughing :)))

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Vu says:

    Feels like ray is psychic because I wondered if ray was going to sand the engine block too as he was sanding the connection and he answered it as if he heard me asking.

    Trying to sleep, not happening. Some ray repairs to chill to is always good.. good night…. Click!

    I found those Noco aerosol battery products at WalMart in the battery dept. Good price too.

    Ray is a well grounded Mechanic! 🔋⚡️

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fluffy Blue says:

    Car clocks are indeed a major source of frustration. The digital OEM dash clock runs a minute per month fast. So, I get an aftermarket digital radio. Other digital radios using the same broadcasting system are perfectly able to get the correct time from the transmitter network. However, this car radio's internal clock does not do that. Need to set the time manually and It runs approximately 2 minutes per month fast. Such atrocities are never mentioned in the specifications of a digital car radio: warning: this digital radio does not sync its internal clock to the network's time source. Very frustrating, annoying and needlessly irritating. The tech is there but they refuse to implement it properly. I'm almost ready just disable the time display in the radio and open up the dash in order to replace the OEM clock for a DIY solution that will sync time every time it gets in reach of my WiFi.
    By the way: nice gloves. We got a very good look at them in this video.

    You the best YouTube technician keep doing what you do

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Blakey says:

    Non Necessary REEEEEEE

    Very funny, I was kinda hoping that you did it to an old battery and clamp just for a laugh

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edgar Matzinger says:

    Why, in heck, did they mount the ground cable at that location?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David McGee says:

    Abrasive wheels and self tappers make easy new grounds. I like to spray terminal protection on my grounds and old grounds are typical a bit crusty anyway

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daryl Morgan says:

    Tight spaces,flashlight to the face , super fast clicks, adaptors galore and more. Great video thanks Ray.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TonyS says:

    Maybe i missed it on a different video, but i wonder how a ground cable went bad. I like to see the troubleshooting process
