What the yellow rubber duckies????? I have a F250 Super Duty and on my way home from work today I looked down and my transmission gauge was COLD.... I am confused, I would think it would be hot if anything..... Also my check gages lights came on as well as my tow/haul light was flashing.... Anybody have any ideas before I bring it in and they tell me they need my truck for a week and ruin my deer season....

I would bet that the circuit has gone open. It could be as simple as a temp sensor or anywhere in between the sensor and the computer.

Your tow/haul light flashing indicates a code in the system, just bring it in and have them check the codes, and check the fluid make sure it is full and doesnt smell burnt. Then they will let you know whether its safe to take on your hunting trip. If it is just a bad temp sensor then it is a quick and easy repair, or if you chose to leave it, it wouldnt hurt anything to wait until your back from hunting.

The people in the know claim the stock tranny guage is just an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly light.

Do yourself a favor and protect that spendy tranny with an aftermarket guage.

Got Autometer in the SRW and Isspro in the DRW with the addition of boost guage and pyro guage.

BTW, cold is better than hot!

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
