  1. Hi, I have a 2005 smart diesel with 68000kms. Yesterday when I started it all appeared fine but the check engine light came on and stayed on solid. A non Star diagnostic tester said that the error code was a engine misfire in clylinder 2.We were able to reset the check engine light. The car continues to operate fine with no apparent problems.Could this be a dummy code? The check engine light has stayed off for 2 days now.Any advise would be appreciated.Thanks,Ted :
  2. Sounds like your inside the cab switch is shorting out. Check connection to the switch. Switch may need replacing.Good luck,Ted
  3. Hope this helps and the short cut workshttp://clubsmartcar.com/index.php?showtopi...p;hl=door+latchTed
  4. Does anyone know how much MB will charge for intercooler preventive maintenance to address this factory defect?Thanks,Ted
  5. Anyone that goes into production making speaker door pockets and headrest speaker pockets within Canada would make a killing.I would be a customer!!Ted
  6. Thanks FastEddy, I will be purchasing the Sub woofer from you in the near future. I also look forward to meeting you at the 2010 Totem Rendezvous. This meet will give us all ideas and I'm sure lots of buisness your way.( and emptier pockets my way )Steven please let me know how the new speakers sound when installed. The Kenwood deck makes a great improvement.Where did you find your MDF ring? Sounds like I may need one? Looking forward to your postRegards,Ted
  7. My pure ( bare bones ) does not have mesh pockets but has plastic pockets. By the look of these they should fit. ( any ideas? ) It also looks like I could tackle this job on my own saving a few $s.Thanks for the info,Ted
  8. Thanks for the reply SameGuy. I don't have the factory upgrade . Do door speaker pods exsist for a 450? I was told by the installer that door speakers would not be an option due to the electric windows and lack of room ( clearance ) I would love to place them in hatch but that would elimanate my cabriolet top rail storage. I was hoping to replace the 4inchers with good quality 4inchers but if this would not improve the sound I guess I will have to purchase the bass bins from Fast eddy and have the installer do it all as I'm technically challenged.Thanks again,Ted
  9. I have replaced my stock stereo in my 05 cdi with a Kenwood unit. Can somone advise if I can replace the 4inch speakers from under the dash( remove the felt ) or must I remove the dash?Thank you,Ted
  10. I being mechanically challenged,off warranty and requiring a oil change and headlight bulb replacement and too cheap to return to MB, found a service garage in Maple Ridge where the mechanic (Gary) who has owned Smart cars in his past and is very happy to service our cars. Gary completed my oil change (sucked out and replaced with Mobil 1 -0w40) changed my oil filter,changed my air filter,replaced my burnt out headlight (through the vent),replaced my burnt out side marker light, lubricated my clutch accuator, reset my oil change indicator and gave my vehicle a safety check. This took Gary around 2hrs and he even provided me his Service Loaner vehicle which is a 450 Smart Passion CDI coupe. When Gary was finished my vehicle was washed, vacuumed and tires were armouralled. ( bill came in at $ 195) I have never had such a efficiant and professional Garage service in my life. I know that the Lower Mainland is Fast Eddy land and know that I may require his services in the future. Thank God for all the supplies and services he offers. For those living in the Valley that don't require diagnosis from a MB star machine I highly recommend you give Gary a call for a price quote.

  12. Hi all, I purchased my 05 black pure cabriolet about 7000 kms ago. Time for my B service very soon. Hoping to be Eddies best friend.My pure is bare bones with about 65kms. I plan on a re-map soon as a sale comes along. I recently purchased snow tires through the Members classified. (Thanks Mimota. Now we just need some snow) I have been sitting quietly in the back ground reading up on this complex machine. There are so many smart people on this site and I am very happy for all the info they provide. Hope to see members at any local upcoming Smart car events slated for the Lower Mainland.Best regards,Ted
  13. Are they still available? I have cash and would prefer to P/U in Vancouver as I live in Maple Ridge.
