  1. Ok, that gives me a good starting point, as far as I know the seals are all original, so 16 year old seals.
  2. I have a 2005 Smart CDI. Has anyone ran into the passenger compartment filling up with exhaust gasses when a widow is cracked or fully opened? Techman
  3. Well this is starting to sound like I need a new alternator, how depressing. This would also explain why I needed a new SAM unit and a new Fuel Pump as well with special wiring and relays for the fuel pump. My SAM unit had burnt terminals in it for the fuel pump. The dealer let me have a good look at it (the SAM Unit & Fuel Pump) and a long talk with the mechanic.Smart has been good to me. Techman
  4. I see 15 v on a regular biases, on day it took a hour before it settled down to 13.5Techman
  5. That was my second thought as well, and lord know that Victoria does not have the smoothest roads. I have used both, a Smith Voltage Gauge which has been very good on its accuracy and a digital multimeter. Both are telling me the same thing.Techman
  6. Hi All,I have been having some issues with my left turn signal and head lights burning out. So I hooked up a Voltage gauge to my smart and have been monitoring it for the past month.My Smart when starting up in the morning or when it has been sitting for several hours, the Car is producing 15 Volts, it takes about a half hour before it normalizes to 13.5 - 14.0, which is average for a car, and everything works like it should.I was chatting to one of the mechanics at Smart about my having some troubles with burning out bulbs. I found out that the smarts are running a very high voltage 14.5 + This is why we are going through headlights so often. Has any one else checked out the voltage in your Smart Car? and what is your car producing? I would love to hear from you all on this one.RegardsTechman
  7. Thank you very much for the reply. I have ordered LED lites. I have finished my mod today, and it workes great. I will be posting a little clip under MOD's, check it out, and let me know if you like.regards Techman
  8. Thanks Mike TI had to replace the single element one but did not check the dual element one, I will do that today. I used the bulds that smart sold me, funny pig tails, LOLCheersTechman
