    Website Theme hotspot missing

    So for the time being change the background to #222222 for color. The yellow background is still set as transparent so the dark grey is bleeding through.

    Black skins are very tough because the OEM skin is based on black text on white background. So careful change of colors I can work with theme easy but the colors have to stay on the brighter side. When you flip to darker colors now all the light colors got to go dark and all the dark colors have to go light. This becomes a huge challenge because now you have to run every single CSS file and flip colors that are now hardcoded in the skin. I will admit we are missing our background that was a Smarty touch Image but I need to dig and see if my backup have a copy of it. I can see if I can create something as a child skin from this skin that is a bit darker.

    Staff can see my other test profiles but they are not public ready. more or less ability to test code before releasing to the public. This is done for security purpose. You would want to add code to your website that could possibly add a backdoor for a hacker to access the website by cross site script (XSS) errors or other means of injection. Once it does happen and the hacker drops their payload could either down the website or create serious other security issues. This is why I don't like running multiple skins or themes because now you have to test and check each skin / theme for issues.

    There is only one theme... This one since there is no other theme there is no selection. I can design another theme but it also adds to my workload of managing more on the site and upkeep.
  5. If you run into a communication problem where the Smarty Touch will not light the screen with the key ON or if you tap the screen and everything keeps saying to turn the key ON. You'll need to inspect your OBDII port. On the 1998.5 to 2002 Dodge Ram trucks, there should be 8 pins seen if you lay on the floor and look up towards the port with a flashlight. The important pins you need to check on is Dark Green (Pin 6) and Pink/Dark Blue (Pin 7) which is the SCI bus for programming. In my case, after popping the plug from the dash I found Pin 7 was backed up in the socket and not making a connection. So with a gentle push of the wire, it clicked back into locked position and gently pulled again to be sure it locked and stayed in place. Power wise you'll see in my wiring diagram the power fuse is Fuse number 12. IIRC number 12 is the Ignition Off Draw fuse or IOD Fuse which will be in a strange fuse holder. The top of the fuse holder will pop open for replacement of the fuse. In a nutshell, if your interior lights don't work then the OBDII port won't have power.

    R.I.P. my love

    That truck is very much so fixable. Throw a bed on it. Fix the minor little things you good as new. The front end isn't even really hurt so the engine and transmission should be fine.

    ABS issues

    @Brian informed me there is a customer here with a ABS module issue (communication). I know of place right here in Moscow, ID that rebuilds ABS units for Dodge Ram truck and I've visited the place myself. https://modulemaster.com/rebuilds/shop/brakes/abs-modules/abs-kh-dodge/
  9. Here is a ground mod a member from my site figured out for the 2nd Gen trucks. https://mopar1973man.com/topic/13823-ground-reference-vp44ecmpcmpdc-plus-tc-lockunlock/

    U Joints

    Last night on the way home I start detecting a vibration occurring when the driveline went slack. Kind of knew at that point the rear driveshaft was going to be the trouble maker. I found a way to change the rear most u-joint in under 1 hour without pulling the driveshaft. I grabbed the Harbor Freight Ball Joint Press and began to press the old joint out. Finish the job and rolled it out of the shop in under 1 hour.
  14. I would like to apologize to the members and staff for the short outage that basically locked out the members and staff from the site. I work with the software provider to get this resolved rapidly and gain access back to the site. So sorry for the lockout.
