Default Column Lock Issues

I'm now experiencing the issue and I blame it on DropTheTop. I have been cursed as I dd not buy the CLB from him.


Still looking into the problem and I ran across this two part video.

There seems to be any number of things that can set the column lock off. I wouldn't mess with it and get CLB on there FAST! JMO......

You won't have to fill the bottle much if you don't get the column lock fixed. Think of the money you'll save!
