How To Not Destroy Your Car While Fixing It

A lot of us are "do it yourselfers" when it comes to some of our automotive maintenance chores. If this applies to you, it's good to know you have to be careful with some of these chores so as not to do more harm than good. This especially applies to anything involving your electrical system. One wrong move could potentially damage some of your computer-based systems, and that's a recipe for a lot of very expensive parts and labor auto repair bills! Watch Scotty Kilmer, a mechanic for the last 46 years, as he shows how you can work on your car's electrical system WITHOUT shorting things out and causing further damage. A few simple precautions is all that's needed, and this video shows them to you. NOTE: Working on your own vehicle's electrical system is NOT something we recommend. However, if you're determined to do so, please take these precautions seriously.
