The go-to tool when there is no communication with the scan tool. Modern vehicles have roughly 15 to 25 computers all talking to one another on shared circuits. When those circuits fail, the vehicle may exhibit any number of problems.
The EEFF500 is a specialty tool that isolates the problem portion of the affected circuit quickly and easily. It features 12 switchable circuits and LED self-testing. Open circuits show up amber and short circuits show up red for easy detection.

Ken Block Special Edition Tool Storage from Snap-on
Ken Block has made a name for himself in all things speed, most recently
putting Gymkhana racing and drifting on the map. Who better to commemorate
his exploits than the company who put tool storage on the map?
The only tool storage that performs as precisely as Ken Block himself. The
superior construction and features of the Snap-on KRA2422 Classic Series
Roll Cab and KRA2454 WorkCenter, with a limited edition wrap showcasing the
rev hound himself. Like Ken's driving, the superior welds, extra-wide 50"
drawers and plentiful storage space are totally awe-inspiring.

High speed CAN bus diagnostic resistance check
(Video 1 of4) A demonstration of diagnosing a HS CAN bus fault on a 2005
Chevrolet Cobalt. The car would intermittently begin to shift hard and
erratic, flash the traction control SES lights, and at times steering was
affected. It would set multiple network codes: U2100 in the PCM, TCM,
PSCM, BCM and U2105, U2107 in the PSCM. Car had been to the dealer 4 times
for this issue, they replaced the steering column one time, the TCM another
time and usually just returned the car "unable to duplicate". Going back
to basic network diagnostics I discovered this issue. Prior to the video,
the terminals in question have been checked per the recommended GM
procedures of grip testing and verifying the connector crimps.
Snap-on VS Wright Tool (Flank Drive Plus VS WrightGRIP)
Get a set of WrightGRIP wrenches at Amazon --
www.GBToolsnz.com contacted me a while back to see if I would like to re-do
my original WrightGRIP wrench video, where I compared the WrightGRIP to a
Craftsman, Gearwrench, & SK wrench. In that video they all failed except
for the WrightGRIP.
Both of these wrenches (Wright & Snap-on) are made 100% in the USA, and are
very comparable in weight, performance, and quality. The Snap-on is
slightly longer (by about 3/4") & it has a 15 degree offset on the boxed
end VS around a 7-8 degree offset with the WrightGRIP.
I personally think it boils down to brand preference with these wrenches,
but you may want to take into account the offset on the boxed end, as well
as the length that you prefer.
*** I used the satin finish WrightGRIP wrench for this demonstration, but
Wright does offer the identical wrench in full polish if that is your
