Okay, I could use some help. I have a 2006 G&K converted Passion. Following electrical issues, we (my non-Smart mechanic and I concluded the SAM was the problem. I sent it to the UK to be refurbed but they found it to be too far gone and not remanufacturable. This led to buying one from a person on the west coast who had me ship several other parts to program it to my car. But once everything was put in, the car has electrical systems but the ignition is still locked out and won't start. They have has conference calls with the specialist on the west coast, my mechanics in NY and their electrical specialist. After hours of attempts they have not been able to solve the situation and I am left with a car that won't start, So:
- does anyone have any ideas of how to proceed and solve the problem?
- if I cannot get this solved, ideas of what to do with the no working Smart in NYC?
Local Smart dealers refuse to touch it as it is not the American Smart. G&K had no advice to give in the matter.
