      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

air bag light on

Question

bhs91

The air bag Light is on in my 2005 Dodge Caravan (55,000 miles). It came on yesterday after I changed the oil in it yesterday. I tried to disconnect the battery to see if that would get rid of it, but it came back on. Any suggestions from anyone?

Thanks,

BHS

Check to see if your cruise control and/or horn still works. If either or both also don't work I would suspect that the clock spring is the source of the problem. These are very common in the minivans.

Check your fuses. I had an older minivan and the air bag fuse was corroded because moisture was getting into the fuse box.

Both the horn and cruise still work. Is there anything else that I can check?

Thanks,

depends on the code, sometimes the codes are correlation codes and actually require you to replace the mechanism. that all depends on the code though,

hey if you end up replacing the unit, keep the old one those are fun to blow off, grab a 9 volt battery, couple of 10ft cables, put it face down and shoot them 50 ft in the air haha be careful though , airbags inflate AND deflate in .4 seconds

My father has the same type of van you have and he has the same type of problem until I went to town on the electrical system.

It turns out that there is a short between the rear wiper and the wire for the air bag light. Every time the rear wipers were used, the air bag light would come on within a few minutes. After tracing all the wires, I found that the wires crossed underneath so they touched causing a short.

Replacing the fuse won't solve your problem, go get someone who knows automotive electrical system to fix it. It shouldn't cost you more than a case of Heineken or Miller Lite. Hope that helps.

Not much you can do now until you scan the airbag module for codes!

If you want to clear the codes out of a Dodge/Chrysler vehicle, you have to leave the battery disconnected overnight. If you just disconnect the battery for say an hour, it will still retain them.

I brought in my 2005 van with the light still on and they told me that the sensors are corroted??? $205 to get fixed. Are these that vital? Does $205, parts, and labor sound OK?

Thanks,

BHS

They are only vital to the operation of the airbag system, without them the system won't work(collision = no air bags). If it were a '95 I'd say let it go providing the saftey system isn't important to you, but it's 3 years old, it still has some value, I think a couple hundred bucks is money well spent. If you went to sell it tomorrow you would get the $200 back in resale.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
