      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 have seen a few things cause the cruise not to work in gm trucks. First thing see if it works with the headlights off, then turn them on and see if the cruise kicks out, if it does check brake light bulbe and grounds in the tail light housing. A few other things to check, see how touchy the brake light switch is, the brake pedal maybe actuating the brakie light switch on bumps and kicking the cruise off. Check the blinkers and hazards, these have had issues with the turn signal switch. Check the ground behind the battery, I believe it is g103.

Oh ya, check all fuses first!!!

So , here is what i did : Checked fuse -ok,pulled out rear tail-light assy and checked bulbs etc-ok . Went out for a drive checked cruise ---didn't work , tried a couple times --no go. My headlites are always on [running-lites] but turned the light switch on and tried again and WALA !! cruise worked , turned light switch off and cruise still worked and I hit breaks repeatedly to disengage and pushed button again and cruise worked .I HATE fixes like this , because I didn't really do anything ?? So , is it the switch itself in the steering stalk ??

Thanks again for your help

Thats terrible that you fixed it wink , becuase that just makes it that much harder to fix grin .

Sorry, I would still check the grounds, you said you turned the headlights on and it started working, when you did this did you hit the dimmer at all? If not I dont see the connection between turning the lights on and the cruise switch. I would check grounds more. If you did actuate the dimmer switch then it is possible that the combination switch is bad.

When I turned the lites on I hit the dimmer to put them on bright before I touched the cruise button .What other grounds are you suggesting ?

Thanks Again

So today I took to dealer who diagnosed the problem as the 'cruise module' is failing. The part is $683.95 , and labor is $56.00 to replace . I guess I'll be using the foot for the cruise from now on , holy cr_p I didn't think the whole cruise assembly would be more than a couple hundred . So there you go .
