Mr. Dot Com (MDC) cruise control system for 451 smart (SOLD) Pure or Passion
THE ITEM HAS BEEN SOLD. THANKS TO ALL FOR THEIR INTEREST IN THIS SALE
For sale is a single MDC cruise control unit, including wiper arm with cruise control button and ring switch, plus all wiring and auxiliary "control box" and indicator LED
This kit, when installed in your 451 smart Passion or Pure will give you the full cruise control experience. One push on the end button turns the unit on or off, while the twist switch allows you to accelerate or coast as you desire. A press on the brake pedal turns the unit off. The unit operates at speeds from 25 mph (approximate) all the way up to the top speed of the vehicle.
Installation is relatively simple, save only the insertion of the LED into the proper light pipe in the instrument cluster, which requires proper selection of the correct light pipe and the carving of a small groove with a craft knife. It can be omitted if desired; the LED supplied is quite dim and hard to see during the daytime.
• The wiper control arm is a "snap fit" into the steering column. Pop off the OEM unit, snap in the cruise control wiper arm. Snap the end cap off of your OEM unit, then snap it onto the cruise control wiper arm end.
• All connections of electrical equipment are made with properly fitted electrical plugs - no wires need to be spliced or inserted into extant connectors.
• To make the install, you remove several connectors from their sockets, place the cruise control connectors in the appropriate sockets, then plug the original connectors into the connection sockets on the cruise unit. Then, you are done, done, done.
Installation into our 2009 smart Passion took me all of an hour - it will take you less if you are more limber than I (that footwell is tight, I tells yah), except for the insertion of the LED in the light pipe. Plan for an extra half hour for that.
Full installation instructions are available through smart Madness. I NO LONGER HAVE THE PRINTED INSTRUCTIONS INCLUDED WITH THE UNIT, at least not where I can find them. There are several discussions on this forum covering hints and tricks for the install.
Purchase price for the unit is $200 plus shipping to your location; shipping to be determined once sale is contracted for. Contact me here by private message.
Once purchase is agreed upon, I will hold the item for your purchase for 5 working days pending receipt of your certified check or postal money order (probably the best way to do it).
