Issue : Smart ED fails to move forward after backing up
I have seen an issue three times now on the my Smart ED.
1. Start car (with key)
2. Place selector in R to back up, move about 15 feet backwards, brake to dead stop
3. Place selector in D to drive
4. Press accelerator pedal, nothing happens
In step 4, I've seen 3 occasions where the car does not move when switching from backing up to driving forward.
The 3 incidents would be out of a total of perhaps 50+ successful attempts to back up followed by driving forward away.
The workaround is to quickly turn the car off and back on, whereupon you can drive away.
Is this a known issue, has anyone else experienced this?
