      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 .

Air-Jer: Help Security System

Recommended Posts

01 grand am problem again, always wondered if it was a Katrina car!!!! each once in a while, the security light blinks on this car and I have to wait about 10 min. with the key in the on position before the light goes off and it will start. I plan on bringing it in to the pontiac dealer next week. What can I expect them to do and how about the cost, it is nickel and diming me to death, (actually $10 0 here and $200 there)but I won't sell it the way it is. Would a less expensive shop be able to do the work also? I went to a grand am chat line once and this seems to have happened quite a bit, but no recall, thanks.

Does this car have an after market remote start? Is the battery bad, which it will drop below 10 volts while cranking? I would check to see what codes are in it, it may have a bad key, switch, or the bcm could be loosing its memory.

Been there done that a thousand times! To be honest with you the first time we reset them and tell the customer to bring it to GM if it happens again. I not really sure what they do to get them resolved. The key, The ignition tumbler, wiring, theft module, or PCM all play a role in whether or not your vehicle will start. Have you tried using a different key?

Its helpful to notice patterns when it acts up. Hot, cold, dry, raining. Did you lock and unlock the car with the FOB. Did you lock with the FOB and unlock with the key. Lock with the switch on the door unlocked with the FOB. You get the idea.

As Airjer said, try a different key first. Its not uncommon for the theft deterent keys to "wear out" from use and rubbing on other keys and such. (They have a tiny resistor built into them) Also if you have tilt wheel, the very small wires that go to the tumbler can eventually break from repeated flexing from adjusting the wheel. If it wont start, also try tilting the wheel to another position and try it again.

Another solution is to think it's dead and tow it to the repair shop. Then he'll test it, replace the fuel pump, the ignition key, tune it up, or call and say that you're nuts because it starts right up. I think the average was about $250 a time.

My daughter has a 99 and we've gone through this a bunch of times. Most recent was on a blizzardy day in Duluth. I spent $50 on tow straps only to have her finally read the manual and see about the 10 minute rule. After the time out the car started right away but I wasn't sure it would ever start again so I busted home w/o breakfast or a toilet break. Such fun.

    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.
