      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

DRL-daytime running lights

Recommended Posts

2000 GMC Yukon XL.

I finally got around to replacing the bulbs for the DRL's on my Yukon. The bulb sockets showed virtually no signs of corrosion and minimal signs of burn. They have not worked for over 2 years and I did not replace them earlier as it seemed that they would work for a few months and burn out when I did, so I just let it go.

The new bulbs did not illuminate. I tested the sockets with tester and found no power. Pulled the fuse and found it to be good. Replaced it with new fuse just because, and still no power at sockets. Again pulled the fuse and tested fuse block. Power on the left side of fuse receptacle which I assume is normal. I also pushed the button/switch by the dome light 4 times as instructed in manual to reset with no luck.

The low light sensor for the headlights works fine.

I have spent a few hours on the internet searching for answers and am finding myself wondering why I am spending so much time on such a little matter. crazy

Any other ideas or thoughts as to where I should look?

Thanks for any information and time you put into your response...

it has to be in drive in order for the lights to be on. thats the way it was with my 2000 silverado anyway. . .

If I recall correct my, GMC headlights always had power as long as the fuse was good. The circuit to turn them on was completed by completing the path to ground. So there should always be 12 volts at the headlamp but they won't light until the relay energizes and ties the other side of the lamp to ground.

Tested with the motor running and in drive position as suggested in the owners manual. Sorry I did not enter this information above although it was the same results, no illumination. confused

Not to sure as to having to be a sunny day. I'll monitor...

Thank you for the replies. Any other thoughts???

There On!

While sitting in traffic at a red light today the sun peered thru the clouds with it's brightness. The vehicle in front of me was a green suburban.

I noticed 2 glowing reflections in his paint. It was indeed the 2 lamps I recently installed.

Wait, there's more.

As a positive side effect to this, my once working courtesy lights have magically started working again. I gave up on them a couple years ago. They have worked manually but not automatically as they once did and for now do.

Thank you all for taking the time to respond to my post with your expert advise. It is truly appreciated by block heads as myself.

    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.
