      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 .

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.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff

      Duck hunting is expected to be good when Minnesota’s regular waterfowl season opens a half-hour before sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 23. “The number of breeding ducks in Minnesota and North America has been good in recent years, so we’re optimistic that will result in a good duck season,” said Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist with the Department of Natural Resources. “Wetland habitat conditions and wild rice lakes are in pretty good shape.  Canada goose populations remain high as well, so there’s lots of opportunity to hunt geese this fall.” Duck seasons and limits
      The duck season structure is similar to recent years. The waterfowl seasons are based on a federal framework that applies to all states in the Mississippi Flyway. Waterfowl hunting regulations are available wherever DNR licenses are sold and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting. Duck season will be open for 60 days in each of the three waterfowl zones: In the north zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Tuesday, Nov. 21. In the central zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 1, closes for five days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 7, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 26. In the south zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Oct. 1, closes for 12 days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 14, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 3. The daily duck bag limit remains six per day. The mallard bag limit remains four per day, including no more than two hen mallards. The daily bag limits are three for wood duck and scaup; and two for redheads, canvasbacks and black ducks and one for pintails. The DNR will post a weekly waterfowl migration report each week during the duck season. The reports are typically posted on Thursday afternoon at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl. Goose and sandhill crane seasons
      Minnesota’s goose season will reopen in conjunction with the duck season statewide on Sept. 23, with a bag limit of three dark geese per day the entire season. “Dark” geese include Canada geese, white-fronted geese and brant. The daily bag limit for light geese is 20. “Light geese” include snow, blue and Ross’s geese.  Goose season will be closed in the central and south duck zones when duck season is closed. The season for sandhill cranes remains open through Sunday, Oct. 22 in the northwest goose and sandhill crane zone only. The daily bag limit will be one sandhill crane per day. A $3 sandhill crane permit is required in addition to a small game hunting license. More information on duck, goose, sandhill crane and other migratory bird hunting is available in the 2017 Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Regulations booklet from license vendors and online at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.

      Citizens interested in volunteering to discuss Lake of the Woods fish and habitat can apply to participate in the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Applications must be completed by Monday, Oct. 10, and are available online at mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. “Input provided by this group will be used to update the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan for 2018 to 2023,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette area fisheries supervisor. “Volunteers will give valuable stakeholder perspectives regarding important fisheries and habitat protection strategies for Lake of the Woods and the surrounding watershed,” Talmage said. Group members will meet five or six times between December and May to cover topics including walleye and sauger management, sportfish population objectives, habitat priorities and invasive species. Talmage said protecting the high quality resources within Lake of the Woods is important. “While walleye in Lake of the Woods are a big focus of the DNR’s management efforts, the lake also offers a wide range of fishing and other recreational opportunities that are vital to local communities, important to northern Minnesota and of significant value statewide,” Talmage said. For additional information on the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group and the self-nomination process, contact the DNR Baudette area fisheries office, 218-634-2522.
