@  dank1945 : (27 June 2016 - 08:03 AM) Check/clean connector #2 on the SAM unit. Actually, clean all connectors and read my post "Cranking without start, onbe more case".
@  dmoonen : (16 June 2016 - 12:31 PM) Is it getting fuel? If not its most likely a dead SAM connection.
@  Eclectrix : (16 June 2016 - 11:55 AM) My smart car won't start. 2006 Passion. The mechanic is sort of at a loss. It turns over but it won't go. Are there any problems inherent that he should look for?

Hello everyone, this is my first post here and I have bought my first smart car about a week ago. I need to get a trailer hitch for it so I can carry my bike around with me. the only hitch I can find is part #11020. This hitch is only for 2008-2010. how different are the models from these years? I am not opposed to cutting and re-welding the hitch if I have to if it is only minor alterations. I just don't want to purchase something that is radically different or it be something I cant use at all. Any advice would help me out a lot.

Hi there, welcome to the club! Bil (Bilgladstone) has a hitch that will work for you 2006 Smart (450). I made one a while back and costed about $60 in parts, not very hard, but to be honest, Bil's is much nicer. All the info needed to build one is found on this forum! I will try to dig through some of my notes and see if I can pull up what I did for you :) http://clubsmartcar....mp;#entry312852 Good Luck! BTW, I don't think the 2008+ one will fit your car Izzy

I thought the old SCU hitch was the best, till you came out with this new kit Bil.

I have a hitch on two of my smart cars. They work fine but they are not Bills. I wish I had Bills but I already cut a hole in my rear panels so I am stickin with them. Get in touch with Bill and do it right. We don't use ours for a bike rack but actually pull a 535 pound +- tent trailer. Some pics from our last weekend camping trip.
