In a previous video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UyPhfvFDGc I ran through the diag procedure to make sure we were going to order the correct part for this SSR. Now it's time to see if we were right. -Enjoy!

    Nice diagnostic

    I tried this and it fixed my problem Thanks for a great video.

    That bird singing in the background the whole time 😍

    Stick to your guns. That's what Yosemite Sam said!!!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mike says:

    Now do the right thing and put the bad logics on the trail blazer moter., and tell NAPA its the wrong one

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Cochrane says:

    SoLLder SoLLLder SoLLLLder

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jut Vaughn says:

    Way to drop the ball cardone. I'm impressed. Garbage.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars laobiker says:

    Do you have a YouTube channel for Chevrolet 2014 check engine Light on for oil pressure sensor switch please help

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug H. in VA says:

    I always recall the Mike Jones rule … 'Don't assume it is complicated… it's probably something simple or stupid ' (Mike was the senior system programmer for an IBM mainframe and when a problem occurred and no one figured it out… they'd ask for his help).

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Crawford says:

    Some magic happens. LOL

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carl Waudby says:

    Do you share with the parts people your solutions to using different vehicle parts to repair other vehicles parts and also do you inform the tech info people when you find their repair instructions are wrong?

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Well done and you knew you tested it right and we all see it ourselves too

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Valentine says:

    Nice to see a Tech that thinks for himself

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bustin Ya says:

    More Chineseium control boards……..pfffft

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dude says:

    It's kind of funny that this was a common problem on the S-10's as well. The circuit board would get cracks in it and the wiper would get a mind of it's own.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Sanders says:

    The bird in the background sounds like the Austin Powers theme song

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon Holman says:

    Lol Eric did a better rebuild on this part than a manufacture that “specializes” in rebuilding parts. At this point it should be common knowledge that those gm pulse boards are known for going faulty and should be replaced when rebuilt. I’ll bet you they cleaned up the old board, re greased the motor internals, put power to it to see it it “worked” maybe, and shipped it out the door as rebuilt.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rockcycle Studio says:

    Good job Eric !

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Allister Denyer says:

    Hi Eric only experience could really fix this. I have done similar things before. Yes understand the system and check for operation. But the fix was pure experience and knowledge of parts. I was successful in my business because of testing and developing good testing strategies. Like testing ht insulation at temperature. Good when cold but fails when hot. Brilliant work and impressive

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lucas Ellyson says:

    Love the magpul sticker on the toolbox

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gustavo Rojo says:

    Eric is not a mechanic, he's a true automotive technician. He doesn't just chuck parts at it, he fixes the problem…. no parts cannon here lol

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Feret says:

    Wish you were local

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Saxon says:

    MODE SWITCH PROBLEM

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roy Quesada says:

    Who again do you use for electrical schematics? I have learned so much from you and really appreciate your thinking. Hope you are around for a long time.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gyengye Gabor says:

    I like this,experience makes a good mechanic too,just knowing that the motor or circuitry fits from a different car i why we pay mechanics so so much.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars geosutube says:

    And stay away from Chevrolet SSRs. Not enough made to thoroughly vet the service manuals. Can GM be wrong? Gosh, what to you think?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony D. says:

    SSR and trail blazer aer on the same platform

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Dutkowski says:

    Eric are you OK? Why no more videos? Stay safe.. hope everything ok

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Mehaffey says:

    Chevrolet will keep you in work for ever Eric, bless them they’ll help to get the kids through college

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tommy O'Hare says:

    Then you put the defective logic board onto the trail blazer wiper and send it back…. Because there not a sponsor lol

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SixShotBill says:

    Off topic but wondering what happened to the long arm wj?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr B says:

    I go down the harvesting components to repair a part quite often, is surprising what brands and model ages you can find components to do a repair or parts that easily interchangeable … mainland japan made vehicles being one who used lot of same parts or components for long production times and supplied to other brands too .

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike the Mechanic says:

    Cardone is the Dorman of the rebuilders. Sadly if you get a rebuilt part in the US, chances are it's a Cardone except starters and alternators. In which case are most likely BBB Industries which are also high failure rate. These are from the nationwide parts stores. Dealers can vary.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Truth Only says:

    I just freaking love you man!! You and your family are so awesome and wholesome. Godbless you, Godbless your family and business!!!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Hammer says:

    I have a 2017 Kia Sedona with 165,000 miles on it. The rear brakes are going to need replacing and the last time I did the brakes on the rear , the left caliper was sticking. Should I replace both calipers when I do the brakes or lube the calipers?

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Voinier says:

    Eric, I've got one for you! Using your diagnostic chain that I learned by watching you, I fixed a weird problem for a guy on a jeep forum that was thousands of miles away just by looking at wiring diagrams. His 97 Cherokee would idle at 1000 rpm until you opened a door, any door, then it dropped down to 750 where it's supposed to be. To keep this short, it all came down to a firewall multiplex connector that had the green crusties! A wire used for high idle crossed with the courtesy light circuit. BAM! Thank you for your incredible diagnostic skills! Now I have a reputation to uphold. I hope I'm 1/2 the man you are.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cnoevo Adventures says:

    gald its you , one job i hated was doing wiper repair , unsure why but ….

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Giovanny Rosales says:

    I just found this channel. Awesome nuff said.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ROBERT CESARE says:

    Make sure the firewall that the wiper motor is mounted has a good ground.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nicholas Andre says:

    Cardone couldn’t figure out that bit of witchcraft? How hard is it to test one of these things before you mail it?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars steve c says:

    Pick up a resistor substitution box from an electronics supply store and you can test the motors off the vehicle to verify your diagnosis.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Haniton Kara says:

    Thanks you've been my undercover teacher better than my actual teacher not saying his bad I learn a lot just, they don't teach that way through work not by the hour type work thanks again

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Ramich says:

    What a fugly front end. Trying to make something new but classic looking like Chrysler did with the Plymouth Prowler, a marvel of engineering (versus price). And this is coming from a Chevy person.
