I posted this before, but....... the ABS and the brake light come on and stay on when I start my truck. After I drive it for a while, stop and shut it off, it may or maynot shut off. Any thoughts on my problem guys?

Year, Make, and Model.

If it comes on right after you start the vehicle and it stays on something has failed the start check which the system does everytime the vehicle is started.

The fastest/easiest way to start is to find out what code(s) are in the system.

It's a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 ent. cab with the 2nd biggest v8 in it. It usually goes off after it's driven and shut off then restarted. Plan on taking it to Itasca-Kooch border deer hunting on the opener in 10 days, then an hour north of the Range the 2nd week of deer camp to hunt with my Range buddies, any safety concerns with this problem?

The Brakes should function normally whether or not the ABS is functional. the only down fall is if the ABS is needed in an emergency it will not function as intended.

What part of the range are you heading to?

Thanks for the info, emailed last year, from MI, (pre consolidation) meeting up with 2 high school buddies that still live on the Range, they have a hunting cabin and some land in the Greaney area north of Cook. We only seem to get together once a year now. so the hunting is secondary, stories get more exagerrated each year!!!!

Thats right. Post consolidated MIB grad here! My dads side of the family is from cook so we get up there quite often. Sounds like a good excuse to head over to the Dam for prime rib Fridays!!!!

You're on the mark about the Dam. The buddies like to cook at their shack but I drag them to the Dam one night and pick up the tab for letting myself and a friend stay and hunt with them. Hope my truck will get us there, at least the 300 mile trip will be a little more affordable with $2 gas instead of $4 gas, might be able to afford a better brand of beer for the week end!!!!!!!

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
