2017 Acura MDX 3.5l SH-AWD No Reverse, Multiple Dash Lights, No Communication With Scan Tool

HI, I got called out to a 2017 Acura MDX 3.5l SH-AWD with the complaint of no reverse, multiple dash lights on, and they could not communicate with the vehicle using their scan tools. I manually ID the vehicle and was able to communicate with some of the modules on the vehicle. Some of the ones I could not communicate with were the ABS, PCM, SRS, VSA, and TCM. I went straight for the network lines.
Quickly Test Power Windows With A Picoscope on a 2000 Dodge Neon 2.0

I wanted to make a quick video show how a labscope can show you very quickly where a problem is. We quickly showed on this 2000 Dodge Neon 2.0 Sedan that the switch and the fuse worked and had power and that the circuit could carry a load within a few seconds. We proved both doors had power from the driver seat. This proved very quickly we didn't have short or an open circuit. Now there is a possibility that you could have had a damaged wire making a partial short but that is very unlikely to happen in both doors. We quickly proceed the problem was inside both doors and were able to show a fix afterwards. All you need is an amp clamp, a labscope, and a fuse holder to duplicate this. I hope you guys like this test and I hope more people will perform it. Thank you for watching!
