In this I have a look at a Chevrolet Captiva that was dropped off by a customer who purchased it used with low mileage. It appears the car must have been jump started back words perhaps. At any rate it appears that one way or another somehow, somewhere the smoke was let out of a few modules after a battery replacement. let me know your thoughts -Enjoy!

    I think the tool manufactures bribe the engineers to change fastners on new cars. My resones for this is, it costs me thousands every time they change them. There are millions of mechanics that have to keep up their tools so….!?

    I could have opened it faster with a BFH! LOL

    I had all the same issues as this Captiva albeit I have a Saturn Vue (same vehicle). I was at the point of replacing the BCM until I finally figured out all it needed was a positive battery cable. So code B1000 even if you have it doesn't necessarily mean a BCM is required like the manual says. The BCM is acting towards the voltage spikes because of the cable. The reactions make it appear that bcm is faulty.

    I’ve gotten the b1000 error when one of the wires to the stereo grounded out

    Even a real mechanic "professional" questions themselves at times. Good job very realistic and as the gentleman said prior to my comment it's comforting watch some of the minor struggles with disassembly and the fear of breaking stuff.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chanda Nail says:

    I know nothing about cars, but I have a Captiva 2012. I've paid 500 twice to replace the battery cables because it would just lose power driving down the road. (Of course it wouldn't do it at the shop so I would get the "are you sure lady, can't find anything wrong" attitude…. don't get me started on the 1/4 inch thick plastic door handles. I finally just learned how to take the door apart and replace them myself…

    If I'm replacing the BCM with a used one do I need a JBox programmer or can my standard Autel suffice?

    GM was just calling you a knob that’s all “remove shifter, knob”

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Ptak says:

    The Captivas were originally made for the Foreign Markets and Fleet Sales, but were later sold to the US Market as GM "Program Cars" by certain GM Dealers.

    Just recently started watching you. Love the commentary. Love the details. I will be long time follower.

    I work at LKQ junkyard and 8/9 out of 10 times I can pull a sellable part like console/dash…ext without any reference, alldata.
    The times I do break things makes me fear working at repair shop.

    "Aah I hate plastic" I feel you man cause no matter how much you're careful with it, something will always break.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jimmy Dell says:

    I believe that the Chevy Captiva could not be purchased new from a dealer. The car was
    produced for fleet sales, think rental car. I have rented one, I did not find it a pleasant car to drive.
