      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 .

Bravada T-case wireing

Recommended Posts

I just got done putting a tranny in my wifes Bravada and now the "service awd" light is on. Ive only had the vehicle since friday and the only time I dorve it was home from Ramsey when we bought it. (only had 1st and 3rd gears at the time hence the tranny replacement) I think the problem is the plugs on the T-case. There are three different sets that all have the same plug on them, I think one is sensing the imput shaft one is output to the rear wheels and other is output to front wheels. I cant figure out which plug goes to each one. Anybody know where I can look up where these plugs go?

Thanks again for the diagram, but it didnt seem to solve my problem. Im pretty sure I had the wires hooked up right the first time but now I know they are right. The "service 4wd" light is still on though. I dont think the 4wd works either. There is no switch to put in 4wd it is supose to do it automaticly. If I jack all 4 wheels off the ground in the garage the front wheels will kick in when the rears get up to around 20mph which I cant imagine is right. If you take it out on the gravel and kick it down from a dead stop the rears just spin and it doesnt seem like the fronts kick in at all. I really dont know how this system is supose to work since I just got it, but on my 00 1/2 ton if you put it in auto mode you cant spin the rears at all before it kicks the front in. Any ideas on what I could try next? Thanks again for the help guys!

I never thought about it before but when I took the T-case out I drained the oil and replaced it when I reinstalled it. The oil that came out was green which I assumed at the time was some sort of synthetic, I refilled it with regular ATF per the owners manual. Now that Im thinking about it I kinnda wonder what the green oil really was. Is the owners manual misprinted and I really need to put whatever the green oil was back in? Could this be causing all my problems? "Service 4wd" light is still on and 4wd doesnt work. I took out all the sensors on the T-case thinking I might have bent an electrical connection or something but didnt find anything.

Sounds like Autotrac, but green is the wrong color for it so it's good you got it out. Looks like blue kool-aid when it's new.

That must be the stuff. My owners manual says to use ATF. I might have to run out a buy some of the right stuff.

Well I called the parts dept in Cambridge and talked the the parts guy. He said he had the service guy look up what fluid should be in there. I went and picked up what he recomended and it is GM manual tranny and transfercase fluid. I got it home and opened a bottle and it is red. This is odviously not what was in there before. I would think it should have been the Autotrac fluid you guys mentioned, that would make sense since it is an automatic transfercase and it would match the color of what came out. Im at a loss for what to put in now. Going to call a couple more parts depts in the morning and see what they say should be in there.

I looked up some more info on it. If the list of RPO codes is still in the glove box you should have one of these 2 codes in there for the transfer case - NP1 or NP4. The NP1 takes Dexron III (the red ATF), and the NP4 takes the Autotrac II

Ive got an NP4. Looks like Ive got the wrong stuff in there! Thanks again for all the help guys! Is there anywhere I can look this kind of stuff on my own without paying a membership?

I would have called a dealer first, they would be the most knowledgable on it!

I did and they sent me home with manual tranny / t-case fluid. sick

I had intermittent on/off issues with my light and AWD system on my '98 Bravada. Took it into a tech, he replaced the PCU or computer or whatever. Light went off.

After a few days, I thought I'd try the AWD system.....only could get 2 wheels to spin.

Looked closer and found the relay disconnected. Plugged it back in and guess what came on? Yep the light. mad

I didn't even bother going back and talking to the guy. Just went and traded it in. I was tired of it.

Finaly got around to working on this thing again and found the wires from the actuator come up behind the fuse box and arnt conected to anything! The red one had an end on it that looks like it should be bolted on a stud. The blue is just cut off and also not hooked up. Anybody know where they should go? I wonder why the previous owner unhooked/cut them?

    • Well, I didn't have any results anywhere close to that... we had a good time at the cabin we stayed at (got home Saturday), but fishing was very tough... if we end up going up there again next year I'll be in touch...
    • Do I need to answer to you? Absolutely not, especially when you are going to try to put together some physics logic behind why treadmills are good, completely neglecting to describe how muscles function with a protagonist and antagonist relationship.  Meaning when your quads are suppose to relax and your hamstrings are suppose to engage and vice versa.  When that doesn't happen over and over again due to the belt doing the hamstrings work, then you are developing an inefficient movement pattern (compensation) and you can expect pain, arthritis, injury, replacement, etc. (Familiar, I know the arthritis bit is) You are training yourself not to work like you were created to work.  Although for you Del, I completely understand if you think you are smarter then how we as a species got to be who we are today.  Or at least you can find something to copy and paste from somebody else whom feels the way you do, who also got dooped into buying a treadmill or pays a monthly fee to walk on a treadmill.  If you want to start judging me, I can judge you Del and this can be very fun for me but then all the snowflakes on here would melt because I brought some heat.  Your old timer buddies would come and save you, delete half my postings that expose you know absolutely nothing about this topic, you all can cry about how I am so mean and hate filled, and then not troll me for a few months until you are updated with one of my postings and then crawl right back into an argument where I make you look stupid all over.  Up to you buddy.   Dave, I got 32 seconds into that video, couldnt stand the guy and stopped it.
    • I'm no expert on this stuff but I'm guessing this is what Dr. Juice is alluding to in his own condescending way.....    
    • I am still waiting for something exciting on the Wild front...nothing yet that is for sure...just hoping the same old guys have some gas left in the tank at the end of the year and the "young kids" have finally graduated and can bring it to another level...it's all about the playoffs...getting in is easy...actually making any sort of run is the is where the rubber meets the road. Cullen making a "family" decision vs a "hockey" decision was lucky for Chuck that is for sure and Cullen is not going to bring us to another level...but will be an OK role player and 3rd or 4th liner..probably will fill the jersey of a young guy we have unfortunately..but it is what it is.
    • Which questions?  The one about your education?   Must have been a long time ago since I don't recall it.  I do remember you being a big big huge fan of Chiropractic.   Perhaps you could refresh my memory, it shouldn't take long to post your CV   And I guess you must have missed physics class as well, since in physics calculations of forces are the same no matter the frame of reference, yet you continue to suggest there is a difference between a frame referenced to a person's center of mass, and one referenced to the earth.   I did see this article from a newspaper.... The author must have at least as much qualification as you do http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/muscles-worked-out-using-treadmill-7727.html What Muscles Are Worked Out When Using a Treadmill? The treadmill is a versatile exercise machine that lets users walk, jog and run on flat or uphill surfaces. In addition to providing an effective cardiovascular workout, treadmills also help strengthen the muscles of the legs and butt. Depending on the incline, you can work the front or the rear of your legs more intensely; however, every treadmill workout strengthens both.   The Quadriceps People who walk and jog on the treadmill with regularity gain endurance and strength in the quadriceps muscles. The quadriceps are named for the four large muscles on the front of the thighs; they are the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and vastus intermedius. These muscles help the body jump and squat in addition to walking and running. As a result, treadmill exercise applies to more than just working out; it also improves the ease with which you go about activities of daily living. The Hamstrings Like the quadriceps, "hamstrings" is also a collective name for a muscle group. The hamstrings, comprising the biceps femoris, the semitendinosus and the semimembranosus, lie between the buttocks and the back of the knee on the rear thigh. The muscles of the hamstrings are used for power walking and running in addition to squatting and jumping, and -- in general -- the more you exercise on the treadmill, the greater your hamstrings' endurance gains will become. However, according to the University of Wisconsin, roughly a quarter of collegiate athletes who sprint injure their hamstrings. As a result, warm up on the treadmill slowly, and increase running speeds gradually. The Calves The calf muscles of the rear lower leg, comprising the gastrocnemius and the soleus, also work hard during treadmill exercise. According to a study from the Laboratory of Medical Physics in The Netherlands, most of the work performed by the calf muscles occurs as you push off from your toes while walking, running and jumping. You can increase the workload on your calves -- and your hamstrings -- by increasing the incline on the treadmill. The Glutes The glutes make up the muscles of the rear end and, like the leg muscles, help you walk, jump and run. "Fitness" magazine reports that people who set their treadmills to a steep incline increase the workload on their glutes significantly, which increases strength, improves endurance and burns fat and calories. Although the treadmill helps you gain leg strength, the machine is primarily known for its cardiovascular health benefits. As a result, if you exercise regularly on a treadmill you can expect health gains on the inside of your body as well as the outside.    
    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
