      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 .

speed odometer broken

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have a 1994 buick regal gs and today I gave my buddy a jump. Well we got his car started and after I removed the cables and parked my car. Well turns out on my way to work today my speed odometer is broken and instead of reading that I was going 0 mph it was buried all the way to the left side. all of the other gauges work, I am guessing that I messed some electric component up or something. If anyone knows what could be wrong or what I should do let me know. Thanks guys!!!!

If the needle is stuck under the pin, very common, it can be as simple as carefully fishing a properly bent paperclip through the odometer reset button and pop the needle over the pin. If it is not accessible through or there is no reset button than the instrument cluster can be dissembled and the needle placed in the proper position.

I run into this all the time, if anybody knows any other tricks I am sure they will chime in!

PS, Welcome to HSO/Fishing MN/Iceleaders!!!!

It happens a lot when changing batteries. I would say that if it was fine before and not fine after than it was probably a result of jump starting the other vehicle for some reason.

alright well I was wondering if that is hooked up where it is ran by a computer or something. I just hope that it is an easy fix and I dont have to replace some big expensive part because I helped out a buddy.

Well I have more problems now. Just went to get in my car to go to work and my car is completely dead. We had jumper cables on it for around a half hour and we got nothin. All that I get is the click click click. My battery is dead. Do you guys think that I should wait it out and try again in a few hours or do you think that I need a new battery?

A bunch of rapid clicks in a row with the key held in the crank position usually indicates a low battery. One click every time the key is turned to the crank position usually indicates a bad starter.

Its also the season for loose battery terminals. Just had one show up at the house last night. 30 seconds under the hood with a 5/16" to tighten up a loose negative terminal at the battery and the vehicle starts like there is no tomorrow!!!

If it is the battery, with any luck when its changed the needle might reset itself!?!? wink

    • Zucker is the new Parise in style, types of goals, speed, etc. Only 4 diff forwards have scored in the last 27 periods (9 games) and Koivu has only 4 goals and ended last yr with only 1 in his last 23 games...and got a hefty extension. We should obliterate the Sabres tonight, bad team playing even worse lately.  The jury is still out on the Wild, very strange team...is it lack of talent, lack of effort, poor coaching, or what?  I still think Fletcher has us setup for failure and Boudreau is trying to make something out of nothing. Thoughts?
    • The salmon I have cooked turns out great, no searing required.    Likewise chicken breast.    Steaks get seared but the end result of the combination is superior to just grilling or pan frying.   At least you aren't making spurious allegations of food safety issues.   Howcome you so mad about sous vide?  Seems like a silly thing to be so upset about.  
    • HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and you do a mighty fine job at it too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Stan!  Links in a first post lately haven't been a promising sign, but I'll comment like you are a real person.  I think they have their place however I stay hooked up pretty much all the time and use mine in colder water.  Looks like your electric heaters for sale their don't operate well with water temps under 67 which I see throughout a good chunk of the year.  Thoughts, concerns or second post?
    • we always use gloves to handle the food leaving the smoker
    • Nua, I like to run and gun causing trouble without having to answer to a higher power!    Well but God.
    • I'm sorry but I guess i didn't really pay that much attention to the residue.  I usually use a set of tongues to handle them so i really cant say.  The one thing i may do different next time is poke holes in the casings.  I didn't do that on this batch and i did get a bit of fat build up under the casing.  Not horrible but something worth considering on the next go around.
