      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.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!

    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
