SmartKey Fob Battery Dies– How To Enter Car, Start Engine, or Replace Battery

Did you know that when your SmartKey Fob battery dies, you still can enter your vehicle and start the engine? After I got a “key not found” message, I started the experiments shown in this video so that I can know whether I still can drive the car even if the battery is dead. I will explain how the auto keyless system works and I will also show you how to replace the battery if you choose to.

The example used in this video is a Nissan Leaf 2015. However many cars use the same system. It could be called SmartKeys, Keyless Entry, Keyless Go, Keyless Access, or Passive Entry system.

3 Key Factors To Speed Up Oil Extraction-Engine Oil Change


If you use the method of oil extraction, one big concern is the long time to complete the engine oil change. I will share with you 3 key factors to speed up your oil extraction as well other tips to make the engine oil change easier.

The most difficult DIY oil change is getting underneath the car to drain the old oil, and most people hate sliding under the car and getting their hands covered with dirty oil. Also, wrestling with a stubborn drain plug bolt is a common problem and risks damaging the oil plug. Now these are no longer issues, and I also make the DIY super cheap (it’s free) and fast! Please share it with your friends.

Oil extraction additionally has advantages if your oil filter is mounted on the top, and it removes the possibility of removing the drain plug only to have hot oil gush onto your hand. We think the oil extractor makes the operation easy, but if you do decide to do the traditional way, we have a different video to make it a little easier for you: https://youtu.be/S0Ndn4rdBMg Maybe some people will still do the old-fashioned way, but I hope this method will enable other people who otherwise would not DIY.

Some people may question the advantages of this method. You may not get all the oil out, you may not remove all the debris out etc. The counter argument is: but the oil filter will hold most of the debris. The oil is changed hot which means the debris doesn’t really have time to settle. Plus no matter what you do , there is still oil left in the engine, oil left in the pan. What do you think? Is draining better? Do you get most oil out? Does 2 cups of oil left in the engine really matter? Post your thoughts in the comments below.

Easy 3-Step Parallel Parking With 3 Simple Markers


For new drivers, parallel parking is considered to be the hardest skill. For non-new drivers, the problem is not remembering how to do it when it is needed. Or you may not have the confidence to do it in one shot.

Mathematically, there is only a single fixed solution to parallel parking. If you follow the instructions exactly, there should be no variations and anyone should be able to complete the parking in one shot without hesitation. When you have a problem, either you are not following the instructions correctly and precisely or more commonly the instructions were not precise and were hard to interpret. Today I am giving you the shortest and very precise instructions in just 3 steps. Instead of using common phrases such “knowing your 4 wheels” or “don’t collide front, back, left or right”, I am providing you with 3 easy to understand and well-aligned markers to follow while you are inside the car driving. The video is a little long because I want to demonstrate multiple times and I want to explain the concept well so that you will never forget. Once you learn it, you’ll be good for life.

I understand that some of you may have your own preferred set of instructions, and may have already mastered the art of parallel parking. However, teaching someone else is quite a different thing! I have spent a year in researching and producing this video, so I would appreciate any comments that let me know if the concept in this video is good or not.
