In this video I have a look at a GMC Sierra that came into the shop with a complaint of no horn. However, that was it, all other steering wheel functions worked and no air bag light on. Didn't take long to run down the real issue. -Enjoy!

    I have seen this sloppy work in many trades . Maybe these guys should have their mothers watch over them . My favorite was watching techs install rounded out fasteners .

    Critical problem solving ,not everyone can do it, logical thinking proves your brain works very good, in a world full of airheads

    I noticed you checked the cruise buttons as well. Is there a link between the 2?
    Because I have no horn no cruise

    Always interesting always entertaining Eric you deserve over a billion subscribers man!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DemonKnight says:

    Generic Made Crap! Thats why that was loose. N probably best buy needed a ground so he Jerryed onto that wire put pressure on that conector and stretched it.

    I love it when I am following the troubleshooting tree, and I test something, and it says to skip a bunch of steps. Makes the job so much easier.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mark Koran Jr says:

    Seems to happen more now that everyone is doing airbag recalls.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jack002tuber says:

    I've never been brave enough to take an airbag out before. Funny how the ground clip has a robber cover on it, does nothing

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Backyard Mechanics & Homesteading says:

    Thanks for the video!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jimmy, Making it work says:

    The days of using scanners to diagnose horns, wipers, air conditioning and more are upon us. Learn up people! 🙂

    On top of everything else and I’m talking about knowledge, this man has a personality. I know some Eskimos that need some refrigerators. You don’t find them like this on every street corner.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Watlington says:

    Man I wish you was close to here I would bring you a truck just like that on harsh shift in 1-2 cam position sensor abs light stability service and traction control I would pay you to fix it all seems no one here can fix it not even transmission professionals can’t fix it

    Daniel stern sound alike.. wet bandits… Home alone..🤠😂🤣

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Red Fisher says:

    Eric. I would like to hear your opinion regarding GMC truck lifter failure and use of AFM deletes and oil catch cans. Are you seeing a lot of lifter failures?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jessica Callahan says:

    Watched till the end and went ummm perhaps but your really really good at it !

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vincent Bozzone says:

    Couldn't you check the horn switch through its connector?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Trombino says:

    175 amp fuse? That's a powerful horn! lol

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Chiodetti says:

    Every so often your handed a gift! Then it becomes………."Is this a test?" "Is there a camera car watching from outside?"

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bluethunder says:

    Be nice to see or hear the conversation with the owner, yeah, all was wrong was a disconnected ground that didn’t look factory.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh Devdoss says:

    Just so you know, you have a viewer from India. I wish we had more Mechanics like you here. Keep up the good work!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Selby says:

    Did I hear you right a 175 amp fuse in a truck is that a miss print

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tech49 says:

    Maybe the connector just fell off because it was too loose and didnt have enough grip on the blade ?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Warrior TC says:

    The day after watching this video, I didn't pass my State Safety check inspection due to my horn not working. I did just like Eric O and tried my panic button on my remote and the horns worked fine. Then I noticed that some of my steering wheel controls didn't work. Turned out to be a bad clock spring for my car. Expensive part but at least I saved on the labor by doing it myself. Thanks Eric.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dave houston says:

    Look like your chewing tabacci

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rayshawn Coleman says:

    How is the auto start working through the factory key fob with no auto start option??

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars G Gordon says:

    Is that a factory ground terminal? The mystery continues.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wildturkey10121 says:

    I wish the problems on my truck were that easy!!! Hey E send me a message if you can get me a low mileage 98 4.6L w 2 valve. I'm going to have to get the tranny rebuilt and I know the mains are knocking a bit, truck has between 230 and 300k miles on it. The odometer hasn't worked in 4 or 5 years, oddly enough it is working now. stupid worm gears!!!!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Morenberg says:

    what do you charge for that quick if he is a regular customer?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    I wonder if how loose that ground strap was if it fell off while making a turn 🤔 @SouthMainAutoRepairLLc

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Interesting how the horn ground under the air bag was disconnect that makes more sense then all the buttons on steering wheel working but the horn nice find Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Juan Rojas-Carrasco says:

    You had to crimp it down, so probably it was a bad connection from factory that just went loose on its own.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wesley Bickel says:

    The youtubes kept showing me old 1 year plus videos. I had to actually click on your channel to see this new one

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Waby says:

    That connector looked a bit loose .. would it have come off on its own ?? ..👍👍👍

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RonJ says:

    The connector probably just came off on its own, loose connection.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John LaCroix says:

    WOW great info. AAAAAAAAAAA++++++++++++ again great video I liked it a lot keep up the great work

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Crazed Penguin says:

    Many models have 2 different horns and circuits for the steering wheel and key fob soundings. Guy at work wired the steering wheel to the security horn and well.. customer complained his horn wasn't loud..

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thedarlings37 says:

    Cameraman – Its got the plastic wire nuts, Its got the busted horn, and it has a motor. What it got Stuntmaaaaaaaaaan.

    Gremlins. That's what did it.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marby Esteven Guevara says:

    Salutations Eric O!!! I have a problem and I hope you can solve it. A friend of mine brought a 2009 Honda Pilot EX and the scanner reads catalytic converter is below threshold, but the previous owner said that he replace the catalytic converter. I used the scanner and the oxygen sensors reading in the upstream is on the red zone that is slightly higher than normal around 1.2v and the downstream was slightly higher than normal around 1.05 v so I went straight to the oxygen sensors, AFTER the replacements, I used the scanner and the upstream is still at slightly higher than normal around 1.2v and the downstream front was in normal spec of .62v and the downstream rear is the slightly higher because I didn’t replace it yet. What can I do with the upstream issue areas. Thank you for hearing me out of this situation.
