      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.

    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
