      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 .

I'll try to answer a couple of these for you;

ABS Warning light; Probable dirty sensor, and more than likely in one of the front wheels. Sometimes you can get away with taking them apart and cleaning them other times they need replacing. Most parts stores sell the wheel bearing and sensor as a package deal, but I was able to get just the sensor off line (can't remember where though.

Parking Brake Light; Try pulling emer. brake release handle and pull up on the e-brake pedal at same time to see if it goes off.

No Brake Lights; More than likely you have a bad brake light switch. It is located under the dash about 1/2-2/3 of the way up your brake pedal, usually pretty easy to replace.

I have a 98 Durango and a 99 Ram 1500 4x4 that I've had to do some of the same work on, and for what it's worth I'm also a retired mechanic. Hope this helps you out .

If the ABS light is on it will also illuminate the "brake" light. If there is a problem with the hydraulic part of the brakes, the brake light illuminates, and the ABS light will likely not be on since there is no ABS fault.

If you have no brake lights and the ABS on I think its safe to assume that the two are related. I would start by checking the brake switch. Especially if there is no center brake light.
