      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 .

car problem

Recommended Posts

2004 pontiac grand prix. Car is kept in a heated garage so the problem is not the cold. This morning the battery was totally dead. I hooked the charger up to it and a blower in the car runs without the keys in the ignition. I also get a humming sound over the cars speakers, So i am sure these things are draining the battery-----Any ideas?????????

I would put a new battery in the car then have it tested. If the battery is weak some modules come on , and wont shut off because the voltage is to low. Either that or charge the battery for a few hours then have it tested, if it is good, then have it tested for a draw. You cant test the system if the battery is weak!

4WE, does the HVAC power supply come directly from the ignition switch on that one? Specifically the power the the blower. On the alero's I have had bad ignition switches cause a loss of power the the blower under load, thought it might be possible to have it go the other way around?

I wouldn't worry quite yet about the humming in the radio. Afaik, that wouldn't be uncommon with some battery chargers due to the ripple in the charger output.

About the rest, sometimes electronics do funny stuff when the voltage is low.

Get the battery charged up first, and the car started, and go from there... with a battery load/life test and parasitic current draw tests, etc.
