      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 .

Welcome to HSO/FM JBD!

Ps AirJer what do ya know about 79 dodge power wagon?

Giggle, It should have been out out to pasture long ago! grin

I assume the grand am is a four door since you said the "passenger side windows". The first thing I would check is the master switch on the drivers door. A test light is ideal for this. Connect the test light to ground and check all the wires for power. Once you have noted all the wires that have power hold the passenger front window switch in the up position and recheck all the wires. Only one more wire should light up the test light. Do the samee thing for down. Again only one more wire should illuminate, If more than one wire lights up the master switch is bad and it is sending power on both wires to the window motor instead of supplying one power and one ground.

If that all checks out you will need to go to the passenger side switches and repeat the process. If that checks out than you'll have to pull the door panels and check to see if power and ground are making it to the window motor. Remember the switch will "switch" which wire is power and ground depending on if you want the window to go up or down.

If powers and grounds check out tap the motors while holding the switch in the down position if they magically start working you just solved the problem. 2 new window motors and your all set for Phoenix, If thats the car your talking. I'd just make sure the a/c works before you leave!!!!

4wanderingeyes, can you get a wiring diagram for this? JBD is my brother so if you could send it to me I'll get it to him. If you can thanks in advance!!

Now I don't feel so bad, you did the same thing I did on another thread a while back.... He said Grand Prix, and you are talking Grand Am. Either way the procedures to check are the same. But I've put quite a few more window motors in Grand Prixs than Grand Ams for some reason, although the last Grand Prix I did ended up being the switch AND the motor.

I put in a motor and it worked good, but it also had an intermittent bad switch, that cost me a comeback and I don't like those frown

Thanks for the Diagrams. Buy the way I rebuilt the carb. on the truck and am in the process of rebuilding the brakes. seems to run ok if you let it warm up some. Sounds sweet with no exhaust and that dixie horn. HA Thanks again.
