@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 01:39 PM) We've got a how-to here ( http://clubsmartcar....&id=4&record=32 ), but a video is always best!
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 01:22 PM) Looks like another video opportunity
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 01:12 PM) Better than a new one haha
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 01:11 PM) and it sounds like you got a good deal ;)
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 01:09 PM) yes sir :)
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 01:08 PM) I guess you got in touch with him?
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 01:05 PM) man Troy is an awesome dude
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 12:50 PM) found it! Thanks man. I remember he was a big help when I did the reluctor ring replacement
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 12:49 PM) http://clubsmartcar....&id=5&record=11
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 12:49 PM) Nope, It's Troy Wilson Automotive. Gimme a second
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 12:48 PM) cause I cant find a number for them anywhere
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 12:47 PM) awesome Thats house of diesel right?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 12:39 PM) And by "it", I meant the alternator from it
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 12:38 PM) Troy has a parts car at his shop right now. You could probably get a good deal on it.
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 12:29 PM) looks like my altenator is done...
@  kdubya : (26 November 2014 - 11:38 PM) *posted a topic in the forum with pic attached*
@  kdubya : (26 November 2014 - 11:14 PM) Bought a galletto 1260 to remap, however the only options it gives for smarts are .6, 1.5 cdi, and a .9cdi?? Neither will read my car, anyone experience this?
@  Francesco : (26 November 2014 - 09:53 PM) Thanks! Told my wife a few weeks ago that's the only thing on my Xmas wish list this year! Sister calls me the Bad Driver Magnet
@  dmoonen : (26 November 2014 - 06:53 PM) Bought a couple dash cams, ps they're on sale at staples for $44. idiot drivers pushed me to the edge
@  turbomar : (22 November 2014 - 06:33 PM) Thanks for the tip lads! Going to Princess tomorrow
@  marchanna : (22 November 2014 - 05:57 PM) Princess Auto is the best! I live less than a Km from there.
@  Bessy : (22 November 2014 - 05:53 PM) Turbomar, Princess Auto has the socket for about $3. I've done 20 or so pairs of reluctors and haven't broken a socket yet.
@  dmoonen : (22 November 2014 - 09:48 AM) Yes it is Turbomar.
@  turbomar : (22 November 2014 - 07:38 AM) Is the socket size for the drive axle bolt to hub on the 450, 12 point 21mm?
@  dmoonen : (21 November 2014 - 03:41 PM) I think glow plug gets triggered by the coolant sensor
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 12:11 PM) I couldn't tell you for sure.
@  kdubya : (21 November 2014 - 11:39 AM) i played around a bunch, entered everything i could. i didn't see it anywhere. Is it something we know the Star can do?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:52 AM) There are a whole lot of read outs in there, so you may have to dig around a bit, but that's where I would think they'd be.
@  kdubya : (21 November 2014 - 09:45 AM) k ill check. i want to make sure they are working. just a read out of temp
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:21 AM) probably under the "Engine" section
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:20 AM) Read out is likely under Systems>N3/9 (EDG control unit) > Actual Value Indicator, somewhere.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:18 AM) As in, configurable, or just a read out?
@  kdubya : (21 November 2014 - 08:58 AM) Anyone know where to find cylinder temp (glow plug function) on the Star??
@  FlossyTheSmart : (19 November 2014 - 11:38 AM) classic
@  Mike T : (19 November 2014 - 11:38 AM) Hodor
@  evotell : (19 November 2014 - 11:35 AM) Saying your own name, I don't get it?
@  dmoonen : (19 November 2014 - 10:52 AM) Saying your own name evotell :P
@  evotell : (19 November 2014 - 10:49 AM) evotell
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 06:29 PM) Well, we repaired the wires and its driving fine now... I guess I'll have to wait for another slushy day to be sure. Thanks for all the help guys!
@  Mike T : (18 November 2014 - 05:24 PM) This happened to our dearly departed green car too and the solution was that simple.
@  SkydiverChris : (18 November 2014 - 03:32 PM) Glad to hear that you may have found the cause Kurt! Keep us posted! It's almost never that simple.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 12:00 PM) cost me close to $300 to tow from the Canadian border post at Hemingford to my driveway (80 km), and my car was up on blocks for two weeks while I tracked down and resolved the issues.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 11:58 AM) jurist? During
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 11:58 AM) Yep, mine started acting up jurist a January thaw on a long steady drive through the country, then the car refused to move on a slushy day on a long steady drive on the same roads a week later. The slushy brine is both conductive and tenacious.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 November 2014 - 11:40 AM) That's probably it.
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 11:21 AM) So my friend with soldering skills is going to help me after work... I'm confident this will solve the problem. First slushy day we have so it must have splashed up there and shorted out.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 10:25 AM) knock on wood, no recurrence after two winters and three summers.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 10:25 AM) then wraped all in Tesa cloth harness tape ($20 a roll at MB, about the same off ebay)
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 10:24 AM) Yeah, mine was the same. I repaired the wires and coated the whole thing in Liquid Electrical Tape ($9 at CT)
@  stickman007 : (18 November 2014 - 10:20 AM) There's probably corrosion inside the sheath due to moisture getting in

Over the coming weeks (and months perhaps) you will begin to see some substantial forum layout changes. The BoD is discussing and agreeing on the changes ahead of time, and you can be sure we are thinking big picture and about what the end result will look like.The Marketplace and Regional Groups will be the first to see significant changes. Regional forums will be significantly merged. The Marketplace will be broken out into cars, parts and wheels/tires to help members navigate easier. We may consider moving closed topics (sold items, ended promotions) into an archival sub-forum.We will then be breaking out General Vehicle Operation, Modification and performance and How-To forums into their own group, giving both the 450 and 451 each their own direct top-level access. We are looking to do away with sub-forums here, and eliminate the confusing layers.There will be other changes considered in due course (like the front page of the site perhaps). If you have any suggestions, send a PM to one of the BoD members.President - LeadwingSecretary - smartzuukTreasurer - SameGuyWebmaster - SpeedieMember at Large (450) - Mike TMember at Large (451) - jwight We are also looking for additional moderators for selected forums - please watch for a post about that shortly.Club smart Car turns 7 in 2012... and it's time for a refresh!Cheers,Keith

Site Feedback has been moved from the bottom group up to the top group. There are no foums in the bottom group viewable by regular members - it is now used for Site Administration.The BoD is in the midst of discussing other changes which will be done one at a time, and starting soon!Cheers,Keith

In the Marketplace forums, new and regular members are restricted from replying to topics in Self-Promotion and the Member Classifieds forums.You can still use private message (PM), e-mail and phone. We are intentionally discouraging conversations from occuring in what are essentially classifieds listings.

We're nearing the point of significantly merging the regional forums from 24 down to 8 forums, with all remaining at the top level. Here's the expected list: Not neccessarily in this order: Vancouver Island The Rest of BC Southern Ontario (to be sure, I checked: Niagara to Windsor: http://soto.on.ca/ ) The Rest of Ontario The Prairies (AB/SK/MB) Eastern Canada (Quebec to Cape Spear) USA and The Rest of the World Canada Wide Events 8 forums only When important events occur, they can be pinned in each respective forum. We will moderate the forums as they are to be about events only, and/or significant discussions that are regionally specific. Selling parts, and chit-chat are a no go. Anything smart related has a forum, so those topics would get moved as required. To be sure, no old topics will be sifted through. The forum they would get merged into is their final resting place. Please PM a BoD member with any questions/concerns. Thank you! Keith

Hi,We have completed the merging of all the Regional forums.Next up: Technical ForumsAs a first step, we have moved all the Technical forums to the 'top-level' within a new group.Moderators will be tasked with cleaning up some topics leftover in three of the forums, and then we will eliminate them. There will probably be a total of seven technical forums, 3 each for the 450 and 451, and a 7th forum which catches all the leftover topics.See the pinned topic in the Technical forums for more informartion.Thanks,Keith
