In this video I bring you through the process of diagnosing and repairing a 2008 Nissan Pathfinder that is having issues with the steering angle sensor. It's making the traction control kick on when trying to make a turn. -Enjoy!

    Those cable reels are so common to break

    I check tire pressure first and because the light is on. Lol 😆

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NightHawk J30 says:

    Damn the dash in this pathfinder is the same as the newer model frontiers Nissan is cheap.

    Fun fact those who use the middle finger to point have a higher intelligence than those who use index finger. Or it’s a American thing as the middle finger is easier to use from practice when using the international salut to the fu gods.

    I just replaced my clockspring last year on my Infiniti … Nissan is known to have crappy clocksprings and they control so much!
    I learned a few new things that's for sure!

    Eric O. Needs to keep light stalks in equipment hoard for the Mrs. Because these here tis new like. New old stalk. Pun.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WouterB76 says:

    What's up G. LOL.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Christo servant says:

    Hey Mr O, I was getting nervous when your were fondling with the steering wheel airbag and that mini prybar in your hand and the airbag accidently deploying and diving the prybar into you head. I feel confident that you know what your doing but accidents do happen. Please be careful remember safety third.

    "wussup g" LMAO

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RJB says:

    Yeah! What he said!

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

    Nice work 👏 👌

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

    Great video Eric O @SouthMainAutoRepairLLC

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ratnfested says:

    Too many sensors in cars today. give me a simple TBI motor and no ABS or rollover. We die like men!!!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy says:

    Got a giggle from ole mate in the back ground with the 33% line , comedy classic.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Johnson says:

    Ya know. I was expecting Nissan Pathfinder with the big "insert engine here". That's a critical component to every repair.

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

    LOL… That clock spring assy… With the steering wheel and covers off…. It reminds me of the handle bars on a Big Wheel. 😀

    Hey Eric, Its kevin from Bath. Always a pleasure watching you work. Very thorough and precise. Tell Josh he did a great job on the alignment. Car feels tighter than ever. I'm glad you recommended the rear control arms and hardware. I screwed up & only ordered 2 adjusting bolts . Unfortunately I didn't figure that out until the day before I got the parts so I had to wait anther week. I ended up getting the trailing arms through Mitsubishi parts site which ended up being cheaper than Rock Auto. Funny thing though. I happened upon 2 other Mitsubishi parts sites and the rear front control arm with the balljoints were discontinued. I looked on Rock Auto and they had the rear front arm for twice what I paid. Still have to pull the brakes apart as Josh noticed the brakes were dragging. Such is life, the todo list that never ends. Thanks for sharing, Kevin.

    Giving you free tools with names plastered all over is just smart. If I was watching your vids and saw you missing a tool, sending you one to make your job easier would make me money. That is if I sold that tool.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 8K10F1E says:

    Screw this Nisshan pile…what’s up with the Roadmonster?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Jones says:

    Great video. In my opinion if i had diagd the vehicle i would have reconnected to the CAN bus and monitored the angle sensor signal by manually turning the sensor with the clock spring disconnected.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Beard says:

    Another reason why I hate modern cars.
    Way too much needless wiring.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ahmad Ghosheh says:

    Most likely a $10 part they got online or a part from an Xterra, just jammed it in .

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cape Marine Survey says:

    Your lucky you were able to pull codes. The steering angle sensor on my Tundra shorted out and when it did it crashed the entire CAN network. No scan tool communication at all. All CELs turned on in the dash, the truck started and ran, but all gauges were dead except for the fuel gauge. Took me 2 days to figure out.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vencent Bauer says:

    Why didnt u scope it ???? To hard to get to

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

    Aw, I was disappointed. As soon as you said someone had been chowdering the connectors I expected you were going to find it unplugged.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars O'Neal says:

    When did you add the new employee and lift

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Brown says:

    I want one of those little pry bars! Any idea what the gearwrench part # is?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars High Alpha says:

    Nissan's are absolute rubbish, I will never get another one. They just aren't made well.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars standard aussie says:

    Love when folk are working on airbags, ya wack the floor with a car mat in the shop its great.

    'Traction Control Kicks On When Turning A Corner'

    Sounds like they need some semi-slicks, a cage and harnesses.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Everyday is diy says:

    ERIC O THE GUN SQUAD 🔫

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Q Can says:

    Gear Wrench. An unsolicited secondary sponsor.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PistonShack says:

    I sometimes just listen Eric's videos. Way he talks is so informative and funny.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Robins says:

    Looking for part 2 and hope it will be "fixed." not "repaired."

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lt. Lothar Zogg says:

    "We won't break them just in case…"
    That's something I've got to remember!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KEVIN BAUGHMAN says:

    Probably has a magninetical hall effect sensor !

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KEVIN BAUGHMAN says:

    Watch it be the horn ! Lol

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KEVIN BAUGHMAN says:

    Isn't just a cute little screwdriver…..woudyah just look at it .

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KEVIN BAUGHMAN says:

    Sounded bad something is binding?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Upside down says:

    Its called a "anti stuntman device"

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frode eriksen says:

    are you never scared of having the airbag deploy when working on them?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Anderson says:

    I had a clock spring fail on my Mazda. I paid a mechanic to fix it right and it was not much money. Without all the service info, you can destroy things quick.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars supermicrodualcpu says:

    My observations of American owned cars. 100,000 miles minimum, TPMS light on, always on and dash could do with a clean.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Cousins Break says:

    Not defending any one here but I had a job that had a bajillion boltz an I ha 2 left over. Not sure where they went but hey free bolts who can complain. Just kidding I'm having nightmares just were they go.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Ziegler says:

    Amazing work man. I don’t know why I thought it was maybe a damaged ABS wire Behind the front wheel

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars shenanigans alv says:
