Revived a 2009 451. It's alive! But need help!
Hello smart enthusiasts!
I have learned to write my posts on MS Word and copy them because they seem to be eaten instead of created. This pisses me off because I bought the subscription to SCOA which also does not seem to be acknowledged.
I request help from fellow 451 owners or knowledgeable people.
Here’s the car: 2009 451 with 176,000 miles, history unknown.
I’m writing brief questions because I’m tired of submitting posts that disappear.
Current condition: The car starts and runs smoothly after minimal maintenance, like good gas, etc. Turn signal stalk present but broken. Remote with new battery works most of the time.
#1 PROBLEM: The car will shift into D or R no problem, but only bucks a little, won’t move. Shift into N and you can push the car no problem. Both ABS and TPMS lights are lit on console, no other trouble indicators. CAN ABS or TPMS FAULT BE LOCKING UP BRAKES?
OBDII codes are P050A, P0301A and P0303A. The latter two are misfires, which may be fixed by new plugs and wires. Don’t know about P050A. May also need sensors
Can I get a complete history of this car at a smart dealer? A print out, like at an MB dealer? Does it cost?
I'm also looking for parts sources which are not a dealer.
This so ironic. I used to work for Andreas Renschler, who was the first CEO of smart when it was just a new subsidiary of Daimler Chrysler, before he went to VWAG. That was 1998-9.
Thank you in advance for your help. Moderators, please update my account regarding the subscription soonest. Thank you.
