  1. 2016 SMART Fortwo Prime . . . .

    smart General Discussion
    The antenna on the 453 is hidden under the body panels: https://www.mbonlineparts.com/v-2016-smart-fortwo--prime--0-9l-l3-gas/electrical--antenna-and-radio :)
  2. 2018 453 coupe - radar detector hardwire?

    smart General Discussion
    My 2011 radio sounds pretty good at 90... :)
  3. P2188 code, ELM327 revisited

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Exactly how would changing the gear oil impact an emissions related code.....? :)
  4. new application

    smart General Discussion
    Just as in the previous software, there's a "report" button (exclamation point icon) for each post - you should use that to notify us of spam posts. :)
  5. How to replace thermostat

    New Members Area
    I'm not sure. I see the replacement parts for sale but you would have to get the entire assembly out to have room to replace the internal parts - or that's the way it seems to me. :)
  6. How to replace thermostat

    New Members Area
    Not the best video, but he hits the main points - remove the air intake, unbolt one of the alternator bolts so you can rotate it upwards, and remove any wiring plugs that may get in the way. The one bolt he points out on the long thermostat tubes has to be removed from underneath the engine...

    See: https://www.smartcarofamerica.com/threads/are-you-a-member-of-the-i-can-rotate-my-tires-club.25415/page-14#post-471655 :)
  8. Automatic turn signal cancel? (steering wheel misaligned)

    smart fortwo (451 - US vehicle)
    Thanks for the update. Would have been helpful to have mentioned the steering wheel removal in the first post.......:)
  9. alarm

    smart General Discussion
    Welcome to SCoA! :) Probably the interior motion sensor. Covered here: https://www.smartcarofamerica.com/threads/alarming-situation.6201/ Since your car is well out of warranty any repairs will be at your expense....
  10. Buyer beware - eBay

    smart General Discussion
    It's an easy DIY. No need to remove the dash or have a shop install them. 😊
  11. Almost new owner

    New Members Area
    From the smart USA site: "The warranty on an electric vehicle is the same as our previous gas models, with a little extra. Like gas models, you're covered for defects in material and workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles (whichever comes first). However, your electric battery has an 8-year...
  12. Android 9.0 Media Center for 2011-2015 Smart for Two $150

    smart Parts Marketplace
    Don't think so - here's a shot of our original 2011 radio: :)
  13. Nobody has mentioned fuses!

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    I wouldn't bother since I've never had a problem with either on three 451s over 11 years. Just pick the most common fuses if you want to. 😊
  14. Nobody has mentioned fuses!

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    The fuses listed in the owners manual would be a good place to start..... :)
  15. Android 9.0 Media Center for 2011-2015 Smart for Two $150

    smart Parts Marketplace
    I was going to take this but I don't think it's meant for the 2011 models - they have a shape that narrows toward the bottom and the lower corners are rounded. Also don't see the mounting screws needed to mount in a 2011 enclosure.:)
  16. New video on smart leaving North America and moving production to China

    smart General Discussion
    Welcome to SCoA! :) No need for dealership visits for regular service items like oil changes. You can DIY them or have a good independent shop do the work.
  17. Hmmmmmm...... Wipers

    smart General Discussion
    Not sure why, and certainly something the smart engineers considered and bypassed..... :)
  18. broken seat belt connection

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Recommend you report that to the NHTSA for starters.... Then get on the the smart USA 800 number (assuming it still operates) and get a case opened - that's a serious issue Mercedes should fix for you. :)
  19. Is this battery drop normal?

    smart fortwo Electric Drive
    Hopefully the OP got an answer to the original topic......:rolleyes:
  20. Frequent but Benign Limp-Mode Occurences

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    YMMV, but our 2011 went through this around the 34K miles mark. Tried Seafoam, resetting the trouble code, etc. and while the CEL kept coming back the car drove fine, including a couple of road trips, with normal gas mileage. Only in really cold weather would it run rough....:)
