High speed CAN bus diagnostic resistance check (1 of 4)
(Video 1 of 4) 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.

Craftsman vs Craftsman Professional vs Harbor Freight vs Matco vs Mac vs Snap-on -ETCG1
I get asked about tools a LOT. In this video I talk about my opinions on
some of the most popular tool brands out there both for the professional
and the DIY. Please keep in mind these are my opinions and just because you
have a different one, that doesn't make me, or you for that matter, wrong.
It's a discussion people. That said, after years of working as a former
DIYer and professional, these are the opinions I've formed about these
tools. I hope you enjoy my review.
Thanks for watching.
