      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 .

2005 T&C Chrysler revisited.... pulsating lights

Recommended Posts

LwnmwnMan2

Airjer -

I know in my previous post, you mentioned that replacement of the battery will almost always take care of the pulsating.

Even if I've pretty much figured out it's when the heated seats are on that they pulsate the most??

Or is that going to bring in a different issue??

If I turn the seats on, then the lights dim in and out quickly, like the headlight you'll see on a motorcycle sometimes.

If I turn the seats off, then it goes away.

If I just turn one on, it's not as bad as when I turn both on "high".

The general rule in our shop is if the customer has a flicker complaint we start with a battery. I can't think of a time when it has not taken care of the problem but the sky is the limit when it comes to electrical quirks. I would be surprised if it didn't work and to tell ya the truth I would feel a little bad blush.gif but on the bright side your starting off the winter with a new battery and clean tight terminals!

I've got the same problem,but the vehicle is an 85 GMC full size van.The volt meter travels around from the top range Aprox16volts to the bottom range aprox11volts.The head lights,blower motor,ect,ect all speed up and slow accordingly...............new battery will cure or is it the diodes in the alternator?????????? confused.gifconfused.gifAny comments helpfull!Thanx.....c63

The alternator could also be acting up...

If you have a new battery then it would be worth taking it to get the alternator checked. The regulator controls how much current is allowed out of the alternator. If it is acting up or going bad it could give a pulsation in the headlights. take it to your local auto parts store and have the alternator (the regulator would be part of the alternator on that model) checked. any oreilly, advance, checker, autozone or napa should be able to check it free of charge. They could also check the battery while your at it.

One other thought chris. I assume this is happening when you speed up and slow down right. The higher voltage when the rpm's are up and the lower voltage at idle? If this is the case you could check to see if there is a smaller pulley available for you alternator. Smaller = more rpm's which may resolve that problem.

LM2,

Your concern is a tell tail sign of a failed cell/going out battery. For some reason's, the Chrysler products seem to be very sensitive about battery draw/voltage. You get a failed enough battery, you might even have to recal the ATC head.

As far as the GMC, I would go in and have a battery test, charging system test done.

Side note for F.M.ers:

Most dealerships will test batteries and charging system for free. Also right while you wait, with no appointment. This time of year, this maybe something everyone would like do take advantage of.

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.
    • HugeHogChaser
      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      Looks like you got one woodcock and a snipe but I could be wrong but great job shooting.

      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!
