    Erik! you didn't use enough tape on that! You should have used an entire roll not just partially a small one

    your videos helped me on plenty of jobs !!!! thanks man

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Bridges says:

    Those cameras are surplus low resolution types you can buy all day on Amazon for $30. My back-cam was $45 and had a color mini display these car manufactures still think the public regards a backup camera as magic. I used these type of camera years ago 15 years ago as the early webcam cameras. Major ripoff from dealers and car companies.

    GM: "Quit nosing around!" Eric: "Nope".

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hector Cortez-aponte-cabrera says:

    Typical GM problems of that vintage. My 08 Malibu’s third brake light worked when it wanted to.

    Poor quality and BCM quality. Not to mention the “fretting corrosion” problems. Never buy another GM product 🤷‍♂️

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ralph Wells says:

    Thanx Eric. You seem like a very knowledgeable and cool guy.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zircon says:

    What did you do to fix it? I only saw you change the license plate lights and then it suddenly all worked again?

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars vetman98 says:

    Great logic Thank you

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andy Citarella says:

    Another great video. I too was confused no seeing a fused circuit lately. No I know the module can control the current. Thanks for making this

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Leonard says:

    why do you need a backup camera on a sub compact suv?

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

    Yep good work E

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

    Yeah for trailers their handy but other wise I just go for it

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

    Yes it's the stench of burned out technologies

    Can you help with a overheating problem

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kaitlyn Hagerman says:

    Hello, where did you get that magnetic flashlight in your video (seen in the 6 minute mark)? I want to get one for my dad.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mart H says:

    Lights…camera…action

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff McCarson says:

    What if the camera and backup lights intermittently work at the same time

    I love simplicity, but gm stands for garbage money

    It was the Japanese who invaded America…not the Germans.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Berg says:

    It's worth mentioning that when you are working on lighting circuits that are current monitored (like this one) current draw that is too low can also cause issues. Make sure the light has the bulb that it was intended to have from the factory. Some cars can be so picky that even using a bulb that physically fits but has a slightly different wattage can cause the module to shut down the circuit or set warning messages for that bulb. LED replacement bulbs or HIDs can cause problems as well since the current draw is different. HIDs have a very large start up current which could be interpreted as a short, Leds could be interpreted as an open circuit.

    Sees the Chevy emblem: "Theres your problem lady!!!!!

    Who else took a sniff besides me ?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Binesh says:

    You need to become an instructor. Start your own mechanic school.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Barnett says:

    Eric O, another great video! I catch myself saying Chevrolet the same way now! Happy 2020 everyone!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Pullman says:

    No way is it the fuse, it's to early in the video.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chrischenusa 63 says:

    Used back up camera cost is $50 to $100

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pat Jago says:

    I use a flat screwdriver and a cloth to remove the taillight. I put it in the gap in between the plastic lens and quarter panel and wiggle it back and forth. No chance of damaging it from yanking it off. Works great for the stubborn ones.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Corts says:

    Fancy customized tag they have there.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A T GN-008 says:

    You're not a electronics guy!? Says the person that's busting out wiring diagrams and tracks down confusing electrical issues in almost every video.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Harrell says:

    Not too hard to follow the nose in burned electrical circuits. Have donr that myself, just not on a car.
    Love the videos.
    I still hate new and late modle cars and trucks.
    I retired from doing electronic stuff, (being nice), I just want an older beater, to run around town in: that I CAN WORK ON, with duct tape and superglue.
