In this vehicle I have a look at a 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander that came in with a service four wheel drive and air bag service required light coming on. Didn't take long to find an issue but did not find the root cause.... just yet 🤨 -Enjoy!

    CARS THAT COME FROM AUCTION COULD HAVE ACCIDENTS THAT CAUSE FUSES TO BLOW.

    My question is- on my 2015 outlander, it has no A.B.S) for which I don't care it's a commuter work vehicle I want too get the abs traction light off the dash do I just pull that fuse the 10A or ?

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars george gonzalez says:

    Just a hillbilly diagnostic method: If you suspect a scuffed wire that is almost shorting to ground, remove the fuse and unplug the far end. Use the little HV power supply from a neon tube and slowly bring its voltage up until you hear the wire arcing. Then use your eyes and nose to find the arc. A little bit of a pucker factor as it could possibly arc over to another wire and that could be bad.

    Awwhh…. Just throw a 30amp fuse in her & Send It! lol

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars davecc0000 says:

    Want to show us a blown (or not) fuse? Backlight it (with flashlight, off-axis). Shows up better than any other method.

    yeah..i'm binge watching SMA lol

    Wire taps are never good

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheMarshall85 says:

    Another new scan tool Eric??? I guess being a YouTuber has many bonuses!
    Which one is this? A new autel one?

    A Mitshubeechy virgin, eh?? Well, there's just some things memaw couldn't teach you, I reckon!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Docoski says:

    Interesting…

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars patrick says:

    Do you have a new autel scanner ? what is the model number ?
    And do you like it ?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Belmares III says:

    Great job sir I'd like to know if you could steer me towards you circuit shunts for finding shorts

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Gill says:

    👍👍

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K-eViN's 自HIGH车房SHOW(Cantonese) says:

    lol new scanner again

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Mason says:

    You're couldn't be more correct!!! I'm the main electrical guy in our shop (I believe), and i know 1st hand having to give the I don't know answer SUCKS, especially when you can't duplicate. The the best you can do is be honest!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth says:

    Damn this Mitsubshi has as many codes as the modern Mercedes Benz! 😂

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cochise says:

    I've been in the same situation, 05 f150 kept blowing fuses on me, apparently a previous guy who worked on it decided to tap into the 12v lighter plug and wire it to the driver side window acuator switches because it lost power through its native harness, found the main in the door harness had rubbed through and cut power, unless you fished it out you wouldn't know, pain in the ass.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Lund says:

    YA it does keep you up at night wondering what caused the fuse to blow ?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Cole says:

    The little one is getting big Eric O. Jeesh

    Aww what a big girl she is now. How lucky you are to be able to see your children while you work!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Wilde says:

    I used to work the Mitsubishi account when I worked for Adesa. Omg they are total garbage IMO worst auto manufacturer on earth! I still cringe when I hear one start! I can hear their tinny horrible start up a mile away.

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

    Waiting for part 2.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cuba's Automotive says:

    Looking forward to part 2…. wondering if the cause of the 10A blowing was found🤔🤔🤔

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Prairie State Auto Restorations says:

    Mitsushitty would be a better name.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FrugalPrepper's Garage & Garden says:

    It just needs a fuse upgrade Eric. I put at least a 25 back in there.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars throttle bottle says:

    I'm going to guess a harness loose underneath and rub or melt-through on exhaust, driveshaft, axle, etc….

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars throttle bottle says:

    awww @ the "dading" part

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars throttle bottle says:

    fuse looked like it was blown rather violently with a large sudden short, vs. long melt time of smaller over-current event. but what do I know 😛

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheElectronMan says:

    Oh those electrical gremlins can be real pain in the tail.. Had a 1981 Olds Cutlass keep frying the diode pack in the alternator. Put like 5 alternators on it would test perfect good charge good bla bla bla and then bam week later not charging again. I traced wires over and over could not find anything. Well long story short again tracing wires following the loom that runs from the left to right headlights I find a pinched main hot on that loom under a bolt by the top radiator plate cover as someone must have been replacing the water pump or something and that wire got caught under a bolt. Crazy thing is it never blew a fuse but obviously now I know what was going on, it was when they turn on their heads lights that was creating a short blowing the alternator. I never would find it because I worked on the car in the day time and never turned the headlights on to see the draw. Anyway I hate wiring issues on cars as they can be a real challenge to find..

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TJ Roelsma says:

    Eric, how many of those diagnostic tools do you have? It seems like almost every new video you publish you use a different one.

    Are these all yours or are they test samples from the distributor you can use and give your opinion on?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars naoki matsushima says:

    I'm wondering why you didn't take amp reading of that circuit? I know, you know how.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The_installer816 says:

    I replace fuse all the time on dealers cars from Constantly jumpstarting because they cheap asses won’t replace the battery

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars nick beam says:

    Sooner or latter you will learn to stop buying these auction cars. On second thought go ahead and buy them it will give us more of your videos to watch. Thanks for the videos !

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars markam campbell says:

    is there a part 2?

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Neil! says:

    Had a similar issue with a 2016 Rav4 recently. ECU IG 3 7.5A intermittently blown. That particular fuse fed no less than 6 systems.. Obvious symptoms included electric power steering, ABS, HVAC control all innop. Power distribution diagrams only identified the systems, not the wires. Had to find the fuse in the diagram for each individual system to identify wires and connection points to start looking for the issue. To cut the story short, connector for the laser cruise/front park sensors sub harness, neither optioned on this truck, was left uncapped in the left front bumper area after some previous body work. Connector developed green death, just add water and, voila! Pop goes the fuse. Look forward to part 2…

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee H. says:

    Put in a 20/a fuse and look for blue smoke? No smoke = no problem. Your customer is a used car salesman, after all.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Long says:

    Like your new black hat cool beans..

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars l wilton says:

    So where did that aftermarket stuff get its power? Maybe fuse 17?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shaun O says:

    That looks like some super duper newerer Autel you got there and it looks like it's mighty fast. How are you liking it so far? I'm assuming you traded up from the 908. Did your old 908 give you any battery problems? We have the 908 at work and I liked it before the battery shit itself. I've heard that some 908's have awesome batteries and the rest, not so much.
