      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 .

06 Silverado "SERVICE AIR BAG"

Recommended Posts

Started the truck yesterday morning and the Service air bag lite up the display box. The red indicator symbol also lite up. I'm assuming this is something that should be looked at. should it be taken to a dealership, or can any service technician take care of it. Will the air bags still work if I can't get it in for a couple of days? Thanks

Any decent shop with good scanning equipment should be able to at least get you pointed in the right direction. Some shops are still leery about working on them do to the liability concerns.

When the light is on the system is disabled and will not function if needed. There is a slim to none chance that the system can deploy unexpectedly and for no reason. Again this is slim to none but still possible.

Depending on what the issue actually is it still could deploy in a crash. I had a wire break on the seat position sensor under the driver seat on my truck. It was used to determine what stage on the 2 stage airbag would deploy in a crash (if the seat is back it deploys faster, closer at a reduced speed). Because of the broken wire, it would have deployed at the slower rate (as if the seat were closer). As airjer stated, any shop with scanning equipment will be able to determine what code is actually being set and they should be able to troubleshoot from there.

Not sure if chevrolet's are like hondas but if you have something sitting on the passenger seat it may throw a code. The computer senses some weight on the seat but not in the back rest and can set a code. Either that or it's a cable reel. Who know's but good luck.

And by the way Airjers second answer was by far the most correct if not safest answer ever........."will not function as intended, if at all"!..............I loved that one. Recorded and in play for future reference.

I called a dealership the other day and talked to the service department. He had the same info as previous posters. the shop was booked for the day. He also said that sometimes the sensors "will reset after a few more uses sometimes" . Could just be me but he did not seem to urgent to get it in to his shop to have it looked at. The light and indicator lite have been out for two days now so I'll just keep an eye on it. Thanks for the help all!!!!

I also had mine come on a couple of years ago (before the broken wire issue) when it was about -20 up north. I had gotten the truck washed before heading up north, so the cold/water may have messed with the sensors in the front. Once the truck warmed up, the light went off and never came back on. No code was even stored.

    • Thanks for the replies. I am going to get a box of 1 3/4 #5's and a box of 1 3/4 #6's and pattern them against what I have been shooting, Hope to get that done when I go up to mow my trails this fall, whenever I can free up some time to go. I will post some results.
    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy. 
    • A guy can never have to many decoys!
    • Boar, in past years you have posted that you use dog food at some bait sites, with grease on it, how does it work? Thanks minky
    • Anyone having any action at their bear baits? I have one bear coming in.
    • It seems like summer just got here and already there are signs of it ending. In the north a few maple trees are just starting to show some fall colors. A pair of bucks were seen this week, one still in velvet antlers and the other had already shed. The late summer yellows of tansy, black-eyed Susans and goldenrod speak of shorter days to come.Continued rain showers in the last week, especially across the north, are keeping river systems at higher than normal levels for mid-August. Brown trout fishing continues to pick up on the Bois Brule River. The catfish bite is on on the Wisconsin River in central Wisconsin with anglers landing good number of channel catfish. Some walleye, smallmouth bass, catfish and drum are being caught in the Peshtigo and Menominee rivers. Anglers have had good success on both the Fox and Wolf rivers catching northern pike, walleye, catfish and panfish.On Green Bay, anglers fishing for walleye on the west shore from the mouth of the Pensaukee River to Oconto are finally getting on to fish, while along the east shore success was more mixed with about half the boats reporting harvesting a few walleye while others did not catch any. Anglers targeting smallmouth bass along Door County had success in water ranging from 4 to 20 feet. In Sturgeon Bay perch fishing has been pretty good with some anglers catching their 15 fish bag limit including some larger 12-inch perch. .
    • I prefer and shoot 1 3/4 oz of 6's which will whack anything out to 50-60 yards
