Other cdi engine usage

8 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I got a used smart 450 2005 which had been sitting too long in somebody's driveway and it's battery died for sure. As a result, the car system doesn't recognize the key unlock command. The doors unlock but the anti-thief stays on. I don't want the car to hit the road again anyway but it must be a way to have it running outside de car.

Right now, the hole engine is out of the engine bay, sitting on the ground.

 

What you think?

What do you plan on useing the engine for?

You will need the Engine E.C.U, probably the Sam and the 2 main wiring harnesses that attach to the E.C.U, the key fob receiver under the shifter housing and probably more stuff.

Dont scrap the car until you get your project running.

Has anyone considered making a diesel snowmachine?  Special ECU required as the existing Smart cannot be used.

Well... It's too late since I brough it un-registered for a year and a half. So I need to pass an inspection and trust me there is about 5 to 6 k $ to do it properly. 

The key fob must be unprogrammed since I fail to start it a while ago. I change the battery in both the car and the key without succes.

I had few PO code but nothing really bad or problematic to start the engine.

My first idea was to make it run so I know the engine is good.. But then, I thought.. It will be great to have ot run a hydrolic wood spliter...

The smart is no different than the canadian 450.. 

So looselugnut, the link is for a system to control the engine so it is free of the smart computer.. But for what price! OMG!!

I wil use the parts to fix my smart car instead.. Which is like new! 230 000 km and A1.

Should I store the engine complete or unscrew everything and place parts in boxes?

I started to remove parts around the engine yesterday, the transmisson's oil had never been changed and the actuator never been greased... 

No wonder why the car was not a good one!! 400$ for the hole car was a great price!

I saw a difference between the 2005 and 2006 ERG valve.. The solid hose is quite hard the remove from the valve..

Anyway, it's been a while that mine is by-passed and I have already a space too,  so no need for it. 

 

Thank's for the help!

One day, the frame may finish on a 4X4 frame and engine do to some muggy trails and competitions.. :D
