@  Francesco : (14 April 2015 - 01:24 PM) Genius. I never even saw that selection, and have no idea how "items I started" got selected. Thank you!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (14 April 2015 - 01:03 PM) Are any of the things in the left column under the "other" section checked?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (14 April 2015 - 01:02 PM) Got it
@  Francesco : (14 April 2015 - 01:02 PM) done
@  FlossyTheSmart : (14 April 2015 - 10:05 AM) Definitely send me a screenshot via PM then.
@  Francesco : (14 April 2015 - 08:55 AM) I'm back from Australia, same issue on my laptop. "View New Content" doesn't show any new content. Chrome on Win7
@  KurtMan : (10 April 2015 - 10:00 AM) Thanks for the suggestion but it looks like uncle Glen will be supplying me a used one.
@  turbomar : (09 April 2015 - 08:34 PM) Perhaps you could check with Troy. He may have a good used one??
@  KurtMan : (09 April 2015 - 12:53 PM) Do you have a place in mind to order from? I don't want to pay more than a couple hundred...
@  marchanna : (09 April 2015 - 12:31 PM) Did you try ordering one online. You can probably get next day delivery.
@  KurtMan : (09 April 2015 - 10:16 AM) Does anyone have a parts car in the Ottawa area? I need an intercooler A.S.AP
@  Francesco : (07 April 2015 - 01:32 PM) yeah 3G. There was a long lineup at Vodaphone. Didn't know Optus uses LTE bands my iPad doesn't cover... Vodaphone worked on LTE last time I was here
@  Francesco : (07 April 2015 - 01:30 PM) I won't make you chase this until I get home next week. It has to be related to the hotel wifi portal somehow, at it has worked fine on Optus 3G for a few days until we checked in to this hotel
@  marchanna : (07 April 2015 - 09:43 AM) It would appear so
@  FlossyTheSmart : (07 April 2015 - 09:24 AM) It seems like Francesco is having some different problem than you were
@  marchanna : (07 April 2015 - 08:55 AM) It works fine for me now. Do you still want a screenshot?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (07 April 2015 - 05:10 AM) hmmm... mind sending me a PM with a screenshot if possible?
@  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 11:28 PM) Ok cleared cookies, it showed I was logged out and there was a raft of "new content" but when I sign in it still says "Sorry..."
@  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 11:25 PM) just for data points, I may have broken cookies or something, I'm in Surfers Paradise on hotel wifi right now
@  Francesco : (06 April 2015 - 11:25 PM) What I'm saying is it *always* tells me "Sorry, no new content found," though if I click the "Forums" tab above it clearly shows new posts
@  FlossyTheSmart : (06 April 2015 - 07:59 PM) OK, the behaviour has now been changed. View New Content should now always default to Forum content, no matter what page you click the button from

Help!The locksmith does not know how to open the door. The spare key is in my purse inside the car and it is running. The puppy stepped on the key and locked the door and no windows are open. Short of breaking a window is there any way to get in?

Yes there is but I cannot publish the method on an open public forum. Send me a private message if you want to know.

If the methods Tolsen suggests doesn't work, tell the locksmith to try the rear hatch. There should be a normal key slot there.

You are what you drive

'05 smart pulse "Bruised" (bought used with 94,000kms on it, Sept. 23/09)

'06 smart Passion Cab. "Silverwing" (bought 'gently used' with 4,800 kms on it, Nov. 22/10)

'95 Jeep "winter-beater" (bought used in 1996 with 6,000 kms on it) Sold... June 30/12 with 297,900 kms on it.

'96 Honda Civic, "Dimples", that serves as my wife's bus

'89 Civic "Old Faithful" (bought new in the fall of 1988) Finally  (October 16/14) blew a tail light bulb!  First bulb to blow since new.  A/C has never been serviced and still chills the cabin area in less than 3 minutes.

Thank you all. Problem solved. The locksmith was able to open the door. If you want to know how just send a private message please. I do not want to give that information publicly so you are not compromised in any way. eclectrix

I did indeed send a PM as it would be interesting to learn how a professional locksmith would gain access to a Smart. Told him my fool proof and non destructive access method as well. No response seen so far though. Has eclectrix been overwhelmed with such requests perhaps?

Being a regular visitor or not is not the issue. You have received several private messages that you have plainly ignored. Not the right attitude in my book.

It is exactly the attitude demonstrated herein this post why I do not frequent this site anymore. To clarify the situation, I did not ignore the messages. The inbox count in my controls read 0 new messages. I assumed there were none, that being correct. It was not until I read this post that I decided to ignore the stat counter and check. Low and behold there wer a half dozen new messages, and all have been addressed, as well as an alert sent to note the message counter not working. My apology to those who sent messages that were not addressed. They are now, better late than never. And if I was not a regular visitor, how would I know there were private messages? It would not be considered ignoring them if I did not see them. :o

You must have set up your account to not receive an email notification when a PM is received. Either that or changed email addresses and did not update your account here.See ya!

I did set up my account not to receive email notification and also changed email addresses. However; it was the site that said 0 messages...you know, the little underlined notification under My Controls in the upper right hand corner under Search and Help. Does it not show the number of messages waiting in the inbox held on the server for clubsmartcar?
