I pulled the following current code: P2033 Overcurrent cutout in transmission at a duty cycle>0 and these two stored codes: P2056 Actual position of turning angle sensor plausibility and P202A Gear cannot be engaged when clutch is closed. If I erase them, they will come back in 10 or 20 miles and the gear indicator goes to 3 dashes. Any suggestions where to look first?

Check connectors to gear change motor and gear position sensor. Get someone that has Win-star or MB Star to reteach the gears.

I do have an MB Star. I'm unable to do the clutch actuator adjustment teach procedures but I'll post that in a new message. Any way to test the gear position sensor? Thats the same thing they call the turning angle sensor?

Had another thought. Can I take the angle sensor off my cdi and put it on this gasser to test it? They have the same part number in the EPC. How hard is it to get too?

Jack up rear end LHS. Remove road wheel and inner plastic wheel arch. This is best method as improves access. The gear position sensor is just a simple potentiometer. Easily checked using a multimeter. The Chinese MB Star should be able to teach gear positions if it is worth its salt. Both clutch adjustment and gear postion teaching may not work if there are component or wiring faults.

@  Th3Guardian : (31 August 2014 - 08:59 PM) Any one have the fondest clue as to why the seat reclining lever is on the inside of the seat? Any one else find this annoying?  :lookaround:
@  Th3Guardian : (31 August 2014 - 06:27 AM) I have used a rear set of rims on my front and noticed a little bit of a difference in fuel economy, how ever it's a smart car so it's nothing to B!tch about.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 August 2014 - 06:51 PM) 451 is a different beast though. People have been putting the same size wheel (standard rear size, or larger) all around on the 451 for quite a while now, with no issues.
@  turbomar : (30 August 2014 - 06:48 PM) I did try to put rear wheels on the front of my 450 with poor results. The wheels stick out over an inch. The tires rub when the suspension bottoms as well as when you turn the wheels. I slightly damaged the fenders doing it
@  Th3Guardian : (30 August 2014 - 05:22 PM) Also just finished installing a set of 2 10" fusion subs with a 1200watt Sony Xplode amplifier. Couldn't wait for my 8" kicker rt sub to come in
@  Th3Guardian : (30 August 2014 - 05:19 PM) Does any one know if running rear rims on the front of my smart car will actually do damage? there is a ton of speculation but no proven damage, I understand that you you probably ware out your tie rods and bearings quicker but is any damage actually
@  Francesco : (30 August 2014 - 01:08 PM) i did my wheel centre caps yesterday but nothing today. A couple of things to noodle with in the near future. I have ten days off starting the 10th, so probably then.
@  Francesco : (30 August 2014 - 01:06 PM) me too. diY
@  Francesco : (30 August 2014 - 01:06 PM) After work, maybe. Oh, dYi. Carry on! ;)
@  Th3Guardian : (30 August 2014 - 11:40 AM) DIY projects. If I knew how to type...
@  Th3Guardian : (30 August 2014 - 11:39 AM) any DUI projects going on this weekend
@  PeacefulWarrior : (30 August 2014 - 11:18 AM) Help! My door latch has failed with the door closed! Can anyone tell me how to open the door? 06 diesel Pure The outside handle is loose and limp. The inside handle is resistant but springy.
@  Francesco : (30 August 2014 - 09:23 AM) I still have backdraft oil spots all over my cars rear end. Only thing I can think is the mocal spin on adapter's square section o-ring is perished. I hope it's not one of the new axle oil seals. Any guesses?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (28 August 2014 - 10:59 AM) Excellent, although I see the category listing must show the original author, rather than the person who last edited it.
@  SkydiverChris : (28 August 2014 - 09:18 AM) Edited successfully. I'm in the list now.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (28 August 2014 - 05:38 AM) BTW, I'm fairly certain the wiki at the top of the page should be fully operational, and editable by anyone, but no one has edited it since I moved everything back in. Could someone try making an update, maybe on the "How many KM on your smart" page or something?
@  P0003 : (27 August 2014 - 04:02 PM) =]
@  SkydiverChris : (27 August 2014 - 04:02 PM) Just an update, but it looks like I've found a ride for the window. Thanks everyone!
