Disabling daytime running lights(DRL) on 96 tahoe
Decided to do a video on turning off the daytime running lights on the old
body style tahoe most important thing to look for is the finned metal block
that can be found slightly right to the steering column. Also another thing
to look for is the fuse panel on the driver of the truck which is mounted
on the side of the dashboard and pull the number 15 fuse for the drl's. If
your in the market for h.i.d then this will help because now you don't have
to worry about running your h.i.d during the day.

How To Diagnose A Fuel Pump Failure - EricTheCarGuy
I had the privilege of visiting Airtex, and while I was there I spoke with
Shane Neuman about diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. In this video we go over
the basic steps of diagnosing a faulty fuel pump. So if your vehicle isn't
starting and you suspect a fuel pump problem, here are some steps to follow
to confirm your suspicions. Another 'quick' test is to bang on the fuel
tank and then try and start the engine. Sometimes this works, just don't
bang too hard, you could damage something.

inserting and removing from the ignition lock cylinder. Here is a cheap way
to bypass it, so you can get back on the road.

1999 Tahoe HVAC Head Unit Replacement - EricTheCarGuy
Welcome back to another episode of ETCG where we boldly go where we haven't
before, taking apart the dash on this 1999 Chevy Tahoe. To be honest it
was easier than I thought, if I were to do it again I would try first
cleaning the switch and if that didn't work I would just replace the switch
for the problem this truck had. I'm learning things here too you know.

1999 Chevy Tahoe 5.7L V8 fuel pressure regulator.mp4
Finding the fuel pressure regulator on a 1999 Chevy Tahoe 5.7L V-8. Under
the plastic intake manifold. Would crank but not start, would only start
with starter fluid and then would remain running, but once shut off, it
wouldn't start again without starter fluid. The fuel pressure regulator
wasn't even in my repair manual. Couldn't find any info online. I hope
this helps those with similar issues. When lifting the manifold, you only
have to lift the left side (pasenger side) as you face the vehicle. This
way you don't have to remove everything. I put it all back together and it
starts up like new. I did check my fuel pressure before digging this
regulator out. I was sitting about 55-60lbs.

How to diagnose a bad starter, ignition, neutral safety switch!
The re are 3 wires or electrodes on all starters. One is the large bolt
that is attached to the main positive battery cable. One is the small wire
that is sometimes purple that is attached to the ignition switch "key". And
one is just a copper wire or electrode that supplies a ground/power to the
starter from the solenoid.
