    This reminds me of "Risky Business" when the service writer asked, "Who's the u-boat commander?" -Bob, The one-legged crammer

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vintage Yamaha Guy says:

    That matco ratchet you used is my favorite one I own.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ur_a_buS says:

    I like my manual seats.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Bates says:

    Look at the rust on the bottom of that seat. Wreckers … new seat unit … buying OEM is going to cost a fortune … Good luck with the insurer … doubt they will pay.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Russell Styles says:

    This sort of thing can be repaired, but unless the parts are unavailable or artificially expensive it is seldom worth it. Distilled water, WD40, possibly Deoxit. And a scrub brush / wire wheel / sandpaper.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Z71Ranger says:

    The owner better get all that fixed and the dash lights all off and trade that thing in… This car will be nothing but problems from here on out…

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars cosmophonic12 says:

    insurance companies total out water damaged vehicles very easily. their threshold was once it reached halfway up the door, it was deemed a total loss.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars michael fogarty says:

    So many motors and wires under the seat more connections than my old desktop computer. Water plus electronics = So many problems. Thats why i like older cars less wires less electronic things to go so wrong. Great Video and good to see you back in the Shop fixing and trouble shooting another video.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Alden in Alaska says:

    I worked as a technician in communications and we had words for engineers that designed things that were hard to work on because of access.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Laminack says:

    AMAZING how complicated car Mfg.'s have made the simplest of functions in cars today.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K Kampy says:

    This will be the first of many problems with this car, it's a chrysler product so the water wasn't needed.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrey Abutin says:

    More likely than not, it will be totalled out. Especially when mold WILL be found once the carpeting is removed.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Discipline says:

    Is this the first scat pack that’s been featured on the channel? I feel like it is

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Noltus Andersen says:

    must be a driver leak

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars yoyo762 says:

    Simple. When you see numerous fault codes at once , it's a sign the car has been under water somehow. It's playing the odds. I'm surprised the car didn't smell like rot and fungus. That grows quick in damp and dark areas like a car seat or carpet.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 73 Maverick says:

    OMG, the floor pan drops that far? I won't say it.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 73 Maverick says:

    Powered by SRT? Umm why not Powered by Mopar. More dumbness. Sorry I really can't stand Fiat Chrysler. I like Ford and GM.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 73 Maverick says:

    Lol, the companies can add electric tilt/ telescopic steering, but not an electric passenger seat. Dumb in my opinion.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WorkPhone says:

    Flooded for sure no brainer

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 73 Maverick says:

    Really? Electric tilt steering/telescopic wheel? Dumbest thing I've ever heard of.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TEAC Fan says:

    I think you'll be seeing a lot of repairs due to the storm coming up.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tedmich says:

    none of these dumb breakable features are worth the bother of fixing them when they INEVITABLY screw up IMHO!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gimmeaford says:

    Scat is a common term for shit. So it’s a doge challenger shit pack. Dodge really thinks highly of their vehicles.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Arden jr says:

    CPC TYPE 3! Some good stuff for electrical! Also use solid film

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars david coffin says:

    do appreciate your conscientiousness in keeping your head out of the way, but don't let it keep you from being the best you can be.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Melancholy Monk says:

    i love how the wiring harness on the seat of this car is more complex than my whole motorbike (coming on 30 years old now), something to be said for simplicity i guess lol.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FW911 says:

    Ray is not the type of guy to just say "we need to replace everything here" so when he says "we need to replace everything here" then you know he is being completely serious.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joel Hunter says:

    Might be cheaper to replace the whole seat

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars livingdeadbtu says:

    Not to. Critique, but it is good to know if it is fresh or saltwater ingress damage as a part of an assessment per long term wetness salvageability. Don't know how much it matters at this point.
    I do not recommend taste as a method! Nasty water in your mouth is not goot!!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Khlua says:

    everything is WAY WAY WAY WAY better without that gimmicky electric steering adjustment and electric seat adjutment.

    Mechanical design for the win. No need for electricity to work and still function EXACTLY the same way as the electric one.

    Same goes for electronic parking brake, c'mon when your battery is low, you cant even conveniently release the parking brake if you want to tow your car, there is a way but its pain in the ass, as opposed to just release it normally in mechanical parking brake. car makers should stop electrifies anything if it doesnt add any functional value.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Crane says:

    Water and electronics just do not mix well at all. This is likely to be painfully expensive, hope his insurance is good!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Kaplan says:

    After the 2011 floods in Brisbane, Australia I replaced a large quantity of data sockets in affected buildings. All the pins had corroded out of them. In one of the industrial areas, the flood water had stripped the varnish off a timber door. The floods earlier this year were a lot cleaner but there was still a lot of corroded sockets that had to be replaced.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael L. says:

    At least they named it right

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SGTJDerek says:

    Wife's '13 Cruze had a leak that took me 3 years to find. Thought it was the seam on the roof since it only leaked in heavy rain. Turned out to be the cabin air vent. Where the stupid filter goes. I Redneck Engineered a piece of aluminum as a hood. No more leak. Anybody need some seam sealer? Brand new. Never used.😁

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ARednecksLife says:

    Good thing for your video.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Luke Sinclair says:

    Scat Pack – doesn’t Scat mean 💩?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Dafydd Gillard says:

    electric seats and electric steering column adjustment?! That seems .. excessive. All that weight and electronics, all that plastic and materials. Is it really easier than lifting a spring-loaded lever?

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars robert Johnson says:

    Ray, I Appreciate your smarts on chasing out wiring problems , I could never do that I don't have the patience for it😤 I enjoyed your hurricane videos also🤗

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken Oyler says:

    Ray, I own a 2019 Scat Pack just like this. I had other Challengers too. Sometimes the best solution to these problems is to unplug the battery for 10 minutes or so and it will fix itself. Basically, reset the computer. Had an issue with the Radio/Nav system and unplugging the battery worked. Not saying it would work with water fried components, but maybe in other instances.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron Smith says:

    My high school pal was much older than me('jam draft days, his dad said , " don't graduate son, they'll send you over to git shot" , so he failed every grade he could).
    He had a Noah's Ark Chrysler Broughom & he always ran the heater and the a.c. fulltime.
    He said , makes it last longer, wicks moisture out of the underlayment((1st time I ever heard that word, he was so smart, having been in school twice as long as anyone else).

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars s richardson says:

    Nice mike lm happy for you and the wife and doggy's keep up the good work bro

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Bridges says:

    Love your stuff Ray! I watch on the TV ! Query, you are great at what what you do. So why are there so many Trolls? I suspect there are jealous! I'm glad you survived the storm! I feel the pain for those who lost everything! (As much as one can). Keep up the good work! I wish you were here to work on my 2002 Ranger. It was built in Minneapolis on a Wednesday. It has been a very good truck. Its getting old now so there are a few things that need attention. Anyway, I'm glad you and your family are safe!

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark says:

    So do you think the fuse box/wiring harness in the back got wet too?

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Werner says:

    This is exactly why we need to go back to mechanical type mechanisms (such as manual seat sliders, manual tilt and hand crank windows and do away with all the useless “bells and whistles”. These systems are nothing more than an engineer’s wet dream .

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars julius liles says:

    Is manually adjusting the seat and steering wheel tilt difficult? Ridiculous technology, time to pay stupid tax!🤪

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Morin says:

    Was that an audio seat shaker I saw at the bottom front of the seat?

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Sloan says:

    That was completely different Ray. Over the next few weeks, it may become more common place. That looks like a real can of worms you've uncovered. It will be quite interesting to see what the adjuster decides.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars @97TJ_WESTEND says:

    Not just any water but that's salt water flooding. That car will have years of electrical issues.

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jemcnair76 says:

    I know y'all hate old airhead Beetles… but I never have those kinds of problems with it.

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ronny Brown says:

    Available soon at a CarMax dealer near you!!

  51. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars uenragedbro says:

    You need flex probes/back probes my guy, I was cringing when you were poking the pins.. also get the FREAKIN wiring diagrams

  52. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 99codemister says:

    Heyyo! Purchased a used 2004 Ram 2500 few months ago. I'm having many electrical problems. The cab lights don't work as expected. The wipers don't function as expected. Previously, the "lamp out" alarm would go off if I had both my headlights on and the left turn signal. More recently the left headlight actually burned out and now the "lamp out" alarm is always active, even with the headlights off.

    During a recent trip to the parts store, another Dodge owner suggested that the fuse box might need a full replacement. Any clue if that's a valid path forward?
