  1. welcome to smarty ownership....youve now passed your first challenge ...many more to come
  2. it would be kind of funny if the problem was just improper starting procedure but yeah that key symbol on the dash is a clue i dont know why the windows and signals wont work though
  3. id try to buy it back and fix it...it will be branded but that doesnt matter its just a downside for cars youre selling and might need a bodyshop to inspect its structure depending how serious the repairs are from my experience the weakest parts for pot holes are rims and struts ive changed seat airbags with no problems but never had to do a driver or dash one ...the delphi150e worked good for resetting airbag module
  4. i would also suggest costco best hassle free warranty service ive ever seen if they dont have an exact group size you need just find one that fits
  5. think this thread jinxed me had to grab a battery today to boost both the plow truck and my suv....sure is cold out there
  6. ive havent picked one up as i tend to always have good batteries laying around for boosting but i will say i have a noco charger and it has never let me down ...
  7. follow the wire...it comes from somewhere and goes to somewhere else thats the easiest way to know what its for
  8. could always go the diy route lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJ1qXpkta24
  9. i removed two broken ones with easy outs....the square kind not the spiral kind the third one already had a broken easy out (the previous owner did a lot of damage trying to fix things himself)...for that one i had to use a very small diamond burr and a truckload of patience ....the threads got a bit damaged but it worked just fine because the actual seal is made much lower into the head
  10. only 2 more days until bird season closes ...i went out on the 26th and got some awful glares from a snowmobile as he passed my suv on the trail lol... you know youre addicted when you count the days to next years season
  11. i seen many lists from local shops full of things i couldnt find anything wrong some places are just like that ...dishonest and im not just just hobbyist who is guessing at things im licenced with a red seal 310s
  12. i prefer 9v dont need a tester to tell if theyre good...just give a lick
  13. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33014831008.html
  14. dare i say search "fluke" on aliexpress.. you might see some decent prices the only electronical thingamajiggers ive can remember sourcing from aliexpress have worked just fine but they were foxwell (a scan tool and a batttery analyzer)..oh and snooper boxes ..... actually now that i think of it the kwp2000 i sent to someone here let out its smoke right away so i guess there was one dud
  15. used mine today...turns out its a fluke 177 i havent come across a need yet for anything it doesnt provide
