      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 .

clicking from solinoid on a 4 wheeler

Recommended Posts

I grabed the parents 4 wheeler last weekend and today I went to start it and it just clicked like it was a dead batter, I went and put the charger on it @ 2 amps and with in minutes it said full, I pushed the start button again and it just clicked under the seat, I hit the winch button to bring it in and it clicked there also. Is this just a frozen solinoid or is it in need of replacement, Any suggestions?

I think I will try and drag it into the heated garage to warm it up in a little bit, but I also have a work truck problem GRRR, both my vehicals started fine today...

Thanks for any help

I would say your battery is dead, even though your charger says full, the plates are not getting a deep charge, just a surface charge. I would recomend getting a gel sealed battery. Its been my expearence the water filled one don;t last due to rough terrain and the bouncing around you usally give a 4 wheeler. The gel in the gel filled battery stablizes the plates. You can take the battery and get it load tested,Just my oppinion, wink.gif

If not the battery the starter is going bad. The clicking sound usually means the solenoid is working. You can some times rap on a starter with a wooden mallet to get it to work. If this does work then the starter either needs to be rebuilt, cleaned or replaced. If batt sat all year without being charged it is history and will need to be replaced.

Try cleaning the battery cables and connections. It could be something as simple as a little corrosion. Pay close attention to the grounds. If you have a 12 volt test light, check for power coming to and from the solenoid.

Thanks for the quick reply, my concern with the "starter" going out would be why does it do it when I use the winch in then? does it use the starter motor to run the winch???? confused.gif

It may be very helpful to post this in the ATV forum. I had a problem with my Cat and the winch and when I disconnected the box that all the winch wires run to I found out that the box also has other things that connect to it.

I dont know the name for the control box for the winch but I did have it affect the starting of my wheeler.

Thanks for all your input, Im on a waiting list now....I pulled the battery and found that dear old dad filled it with water and it appears to be a solid piece of ice, I have replaced it and waiting for it to charge, I have inspected the connections on the solinoid and all appear to be good, lets just hope its the battery!

again thanks !
