    Scotty, great videos! Here's a head scratcher for ya... 1996 Chevy Impala SS, the "Change oil light" won't reset.
    I can turn the light off and on manually with the TEC II plugged in, but the light comes back on when it's disconnected, and there is nowhere in the menu that allows for a manual reset.
    Have you ever seen this before, and do you know where the circuitry for that oil life system lives? There is seemingly little information online anywhere, and the dealer has no clue, so you're the last hope!!

    What this is going to do is drastically drop car prices. Or people will just lease it, beat it up like a rental, then dump them back on the dealer. Nobody is going to want a 3 year old car, beat to hell and going to break sooner.

    This is what they did to the individual TV repairman . To get the same schematics you needed to either pay 49.00 for a schematics. Now to replace a ic you need to cool down the ic in steps over time for the advanced solder different types they use. Expensive equipment to do correct.

    I was watching to find out why he can't be mechanic any more. But the drama queen stuff just go on and on. I gave up and never did find out why. Most people drive used cars, and most mechanics fixed used cars. So, who cares about warranty? BMWs have the most widely available info out there, given their popularity with poor young males. Get one of those, and you are good to go.

    He's actually dead wrong about most of what he says here. I agree with him talking about "fair" price for information, however, we have a right to repair as independent shops. The fact is, if a car is under manufacturer warranty, why would you take it someplace to have it fixed where you'd have to pay? Most cars today come with a 3/36 and 5/60 for powertrain. Some come with 10/100, so indy shops won't see a model year until it is out of warranty most of the time. The ability to gain access to modules and other such information is absolutely there for indy shops.

    Reminds me of that scene from Fight Club.

    Narrator: A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.

    Woman on plane: Are there a lot of the kinds of accidents?

    Narrator: You wouldn't believe.

    Woman: Which car company do you work for?

    Narrator: A major one.

    There is a reason why the mitsubishi mirage has continually had positive upwards sales despite being a subcompact car and being cheaply made. Simply the fact that it is so cheap and easy to maintain without all the over complicated technology and voided warranties present. Most manufacturers don't realize that many people don't want, need, or use most of this extra technology and just want a affordable, basic car that they can fix or can take to their trusted mechanic. As cars become more expensive and ridiculous to maintain, expect another crash in the car market as more people keep their more reliable older cars or stick with simpler cars like the mirage.

    "Right to Repair" is one thing for most industries, I support it, and so would do so in automotive also. I have to think, though, that when it comes to cars and carmakers, and all the regulations and responsibility for, oh, idk, people's lives, that when it comes to safety issues they need to proceed with extreme caution and decide things based on zero tolerances for error. $1000 and yearly membership, at least, would help sort out, less honest or responsible than you, back yard 'mechanics' from making claims to get info. Anyway, $50 one time use is only 20 uses to make it $1000. If all the makers charged that up front to registered shops it is no different than hordes of businesses in many industries that have industry associated subscription costs for what they do, and a normal cost of doing business... which they deserve. They have to administer it all globally to different local laws, staff a call center, and deal with lawsuits independent mechanics will inevitably cost them. Its big, complex business and dealers are independent businesses, they deserve the support of the manufacturer. And the manufacturer wants to give them as little of their profit as they can get away with, creating repair biz for them helps facilitate that.

    Peace
