SAM module nightmare

I have a 2003 smart that when the headlights come on so do the wipers. and then the car will not go into gear. I have spent 50 hours trying to troubleshoot this with no luck. Everything points to the sam but I don't feel like wasting 500 dollars if its not the problem.

450 SAM concern:

I would get in touch with Smartmadness and see if they can help you diagnose your concern.

Might be worth a trip to a smart center in Mexico.

Leroy is a 450 expert, resource and general go-to guy for those of us that have a first generation smart.

to SCoA!

Since you're in Vancouver with a diesel, you might also try asking Eddy at Flying Tiger as well as posting your question on the Canadian site, Club Smart Car. Let us know how it turns out.
