Come along with Eric O at the SMA shop as he has a look at this Dodge Neon that was towed in as a "No Start, No Crank" It is not your typical coil or fuel pump so grab a cup of coffee as we hit this car with a methodical, logical diagnostic approach to track down the problem.

    Damn thing needs to be a museum, probably is

    Just watched this 5yr old video. IMHO it was one of your best diagnoses. And the fact you went for hard fix not quick and dirty. I liked having Hanna and Marie around in those days.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robin Sattahip says:

    I liked the Neons when they were new in the 90s. They were fun little rentals. I would not have bought one, prefer to own a Toyota.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Victor Bellan says:

    Great trouble shooting & patience!

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Bingham says:

    THANK YOU BROTHER FOR REPOSTING THIS VIDEO. IT'S A GREAT WIRING DIAGNOSTIC TUTORIAL. BAD THING IS, WE DON'T ALL HAVE A SCANNER. GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER. 🙂💖

    Your daughter looks at you with such love, or, she's looking at you and thinking…. You're doing it wrong dad, move over and let me show you how to do it….. LMAO

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Pegg says:

    What a douchebag why didn't you just check the PC 24 splicer34 into the c143 connector minus 11 ecm

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pork chop says:

    Crying out loud the value of that omni is worth about half of what you're gonna charge for diagnosis.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Louis Harris says:

    I bill by the hour for electrical work, the first thing I do is print up the schematic

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vern Toad says:

    How how much would you charge for that?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Hardeman says:

    Have a BMW 321I and everything is German. Cranks but no start and no com to scan tool. I suspect security breach because battery died.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dauntless DauntlessDauntless says:

    Late reply to an old video, but you might want to try a seamstress's seam ripper to open up taped looms. Amazon/Google show all sorts of sizes and varieties.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Gould says:

    The manufacturers know what they are doing.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dale Williford says:

    Every time I watch this channel I feel like I'm at the University of Auto Repair and I'd better study

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Hind says:

    Great video Eric: I have spent my life troubleshooting electronic & electric equipment, including radar & process control, & your trouble shooting actions are absolutely beyond reproach. Well done !

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ashley Jenkins says:

    A dam oil pan on 2010 kia forte changed with car ramps all was going good till under the ac comprrsser bracket bang 2 12 point sockets mot to mention to get bracket off could only get in with wrench and half turn at a time. Never the less was a big pain in the ass.

    I'll say it again – tone tracer. You inject a signal in the broken wire and then use a non-contact probe to run along the cable outer to find where it stops pinging

    We've been using them in telco/electrical fiields for decades

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bobcat50 says:

    After every video of yours, I say "Thank You!" Thank You for demystifying the work you do. It is a big help for us DIY guys. The good book says: "If you see a wise man, seek Him out; let your feet wear away his doorstep." or His Thumbs Up button. 🙂 "You say if I could do it, you could do it" – I say, Thank You!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee says:

    I had a similar job but the wire was broken right at the crimp in the connector. I went thew about the same crap you did in this video

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nicholas Cassidy says:

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Freddie Johnson Jr says:
