  34. John Bailey on August 2, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    I love your show. I spend alot of time watching your videos every day. I do have a suggestion for a video and that is about problems with turn signals. I have a 1995 Chevy Blazer and the turn signals are not working. I tried changing the fuse and it didn’t work. So if you could come up with a video to show me some other ways to fix that it would be amazing. Your awesome and I love watching your videos.

  35. wayarman on August 2, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Hi Eric. I am from Malaysia. Can I have your permission to re dub your videos in Malay language?

  41. Cyril Katatak on August 2, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    So, is the battery the beginning and the end of the electrical system?

  43. SLASHMANISM on August 2, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    i like how you do things. like and subscribe from me (very rare)

  44. David WEUM on August 2, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    FYI for novices like myself. I had a bad battery. It charged right up. Long story short. I looked for everything – shorts, bad wires etc – the ultimate test is the cells. I had two bad cells. The guy at the Battery Doctor demonstrated that with his dimple tool which is something like a coolant tester indicating bad cells. It was the battery afterall even though I charged it fully. I’m sorry, but I do not know the name of the tool.
    So, in the future take your battery yo any garage and they will test your battery cells for free.

    I’m trying to get always on power from my dome light for a USB device. I’m not worried about draining as I have a very large deep cycle battery maintained by a large solar panel. Anybody know what line is likely hot and what line is ground. It’s 2018 Promaster City van. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXtPcuoTYGk
