      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 .

Jeep HVAC Question

Recommended Posts

So, I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited V8 with dual automatic climate control. About a year ago the blower motor failed an in doing so the wiring to the blower resistor connector melted destroying the connector, wiring, and resistor. The dealership sold me an "updated" blower motor, resistor, and pigtail for at the resistor. I now have an intermittently inop blower and found the connector at the resistor is melting again. The pins and connectors appear, to me, to be undersized for the current load. Wondering if any of you guys have encountered this and have a fix. Or am I doomed to rewire this once a year or so. The dealership has pigtail kits in stock in willmar so I am assuming that this is common.

Let me know.

I would verify the ground to the resistor is good, and hard wire larger wires to the blower motor and resistor.

Ground is 0.2 ohm's. The wire size is large enough but the pin connectors seem small. The pigtail kit from the dealer had larger wires but same small pins. The connector melts where it plugs into the resistor.

I would recommend a voltage drop, instead of just measuring resistance!

One more thing, make sure you are getting a good airflow across the resistor.

Good point!

Sorry to say, but yes it is common. If you modify the connector, monitor it and report back. I would be curious on the out come. Just do not burn down the jeep grin

You can always check to see if the blower motor has been updated since the last one you put in. If I remember correctly, they where updating them because of and excessive draw reason.

Good luck!

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance
