      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Warning Buzzer on 1999 Yamaha F100

Recommended Posts

ok, the problem I am having is that when I run the motor at anything above 4500 rpms for any length of time, the warning buzzer sounds and the motor goes into safety mode. There is plenty of oil and the motor is spitting out water. Also, as long as I run the motor around 4000 rpms it runs smooth with no problems. I have read other numerous posts and I have been trying everything.

I cleaned the battery terminals, changed the oil filter, backflushed the cooling system and checked for loose wires.

My boat does not have the digital gauges so I am unaware if this is something related to the oil pressure or overheating.

Although the last time the buzzer sounded, I immediately took off the cover and put my hands right on the motor and it did not feel hot to the touch so I am assuming it is not overheating. Which leads me to believe that it is something to do with the oil pressure.

Could this be a bad sensor? Or could it be a weak oil pump or something. Ive called a few different shops and they all give me a different answer so I am leary that the problem wont get fixed unless I can nail it down prior to bringing it in. ANY suggestions? (Sorry about writing a book)

I just went thru the exact same thing, for the last 7 weeks with a F115.

Diagnostics showed no codes.

Oil pressure and water temp were fine.

Spents several weeks in the shop.

Finally got it fixed on Thursday, after spending a couple hours on the water with the dignostic computer hooked up.

Bad ECM board.

Expensive to repair, but I dont care if its your employees, your outboard or your wife, if you cant trust it its not worth owning.

Havent gotten the bill yet, but the number $1100.00 for the ECM was mentioned a couple times.

That would really sting....I did buy a water pump rebuild kit with a new impeller. Figured I would start there. Should be here in a day or so. Now im really crossing my fingers that this will take care of it. By the way, I did a little more checking and the water stream seemed a little weak so im thinking it may be an overheating problem.

Good chance the water pump is your problem. I had the same problem with my 150 a while back.

The new impeller took care of it.

Good luck - be optimistic!

    • For gills when using live bait st croix spring bobber rods. for gills and crappie when using plastics I use the snitch. for perch and eyes croxton pond rods in light to med/light   I have about 36 ice set ups but I getting rid    Of some  
    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.
