      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 .

Lamp out on Dodge 1500

Recommended Posts

caughtacase73

I have a 2004 dodge 1500. The "lamp out" indicator on the dash is on. I have check all the usual suspects I think (turn lights / brake lights / head lights). Does anyone have a suggestion on isolating a bad bulb and turning off the "lamp out" indicator light.

Thanks

Travis

How about side markers, turn signals, license bulbs, and reverse lights? Typically side markers/license bulbs aren't monitored. I'm not sure about reverse lights though.

I think they all are monitored. Check dash lights bulbs also.

Also check low and high beams lights.

I know for sure on the jeeps the side markers are not monitored. I have never tested the reverse lights, might have to test that theory on a slow night in the near future. I find front and rear sidemarkers blown out all the time with no messages in the info center.

People would be surprised to find out how many bulbs they actually have on there vehicles. Not to mention how many of them are burnt out!

Does the 04's have daytime running lights? Does the error pop up when you turn the lights on or does it come on as soon as the the key is on?

Airjer,

We are not talking about a Jeep here grin.gif.

I would (almost bet my life) Dodge (a division of Chrysler, which owns Jeep) monitors side markers.

You found the quasar loop hole in the Chrysler Corporation. grin.gif

They have two different BCM’s (Part Numbers).

I do not doubt Jeep’s BCM does not monitor side markers though. cool.gif

In situations where an aftermarket utility box is installed after the removal of the original

equipment pick up box, the lamp out indicator may illuminate. This is due to the

use of aftermarket rear stop and turn signal lamps which use a dual filament bulb

instead of separate circuits for the stop and turn indictor. The Front Control Module

(FCM), monitors the current flowing through the stop and turn signal circuits to operate

the lamp out feature. Most aftermarket rear stop and turn signal assemblies use

dual filament bulbs with a common stop and turn circuit. The current flow through

these units will be different than the original equipment lamps.

A new feature has been added to the FCM to allow the use of dual filament rear stop and turn

signals. This feature is called, “Combined Rear Stop and Turn lamps” . It can be programmed

into the FCM using the DRB® III on vehicles built after Aug. 6, 2003 (MDH - 0806XX). To

program the feature, connect the DRB® III and make the following menu selections:

Item No. Description

1 DRB Stand Alone

3 Body

3 FCM/IPM

9 Miscellaneous

4 Comb R Stop & Turn


Hope this helps you, it may or may not be your problem, but it's worth a shot.

GatorBait,

Good info!

I also forgot about third (cab) brake light bulb and cargo lights. Be sure to check them.

I checked all my lights immediately after the indicator light came on and could not find the problem. After about 4 days I checked again and found it to be a brake light ( not the third brake light). I have to guess that the bulb was weak or shorting and working / then not working and final failed completely. So I replaced the bulb and my indicator light turned off.

I really appreciate the help. As stated many times, this is a great site full of true sportsmen and sportswomen and general good people. Thanks again for the help.

As a follow up, any of you guys that put a snowplow on, even with all of the lights working, you may OR may not get the "lamp out" light on the dash.

Sometimes it will illuminate, sometimes not.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
