    Hi guys, Only had my second hand Smart EQ from Dec 2018 for a week now and it came without the TomTom SD card. Tried to put the "update TOMTOM.000 file" on a new SD card and updated the Smart Media System. When I plugged back the SD on the computer the TomTom Smart Media Connect App recognised...
  2. smart fortwo Electric Drive
    Moved the car to charge it this morning - it's parked about three feet in front of another EV at 90deg. Plugged in, started charging and tried to lock the doors using the remote - nothing. Tried all the remote buttons on both the main and spare keys - nothing. Tried the manual lock - nothing...

    A couple of weeks' ago, I experienced the HV battery glitch where immediately after charging the car reported that there was an issue with battery management (or similar) and it needed garage/dealer intervention. Freaked me out a bit until the car sorted itself out (after being left for twenty...

    I recently bought a 453 ED with 16,000 mi and noticed that when charging on a level 2 charger, the AC doesn't seem to work. After initiating a charge session, then turning the vehicle on (by turning the key all the way) with the AC previously turned on, there is no cold air coming out of the...

    I can't imagine why there would be, but are there any electrics inside the cabin rear view mirror? In the centre (L-R) and about a quarter inch down from the top edge, I have what I can only really describe as a dead spot that's about the size of a pea - and I'm baffled as to what it's doing...

    My 453 only came with the seatbelt through-mount(?) on the drivers seat - the thing that holds the belt off the seat at shoulder height. There's nothing on the passenger side; the belt is free to do it's own thing. Being reasonably tall - and the driver - the mount makes life pretty...

    I am a new member. I purchased a 2018 smart EQ fortwo (passion trim) with about 16k miles from a used car dealer who specializes in EV/PHEV (not a Mercedes dealer). It was a personal lease return, and the seller recommended that a Mercedes dealer check it to keep the 8-year HV battery warranty...

    From what I have read (Evilution Site) the large Digital Speed display was a feature on later model 453's and could be used using the up-down selection buttons on the steering wheel. It added a 9th bar to the 8th already on the display. See picture from Evilution site. The site (I'm a...

    I started receiving disturbing errors upon first starting my 2017 453 EV after it had been sitting unused for several days to a couple weeks. The errors were brake system errors of various kinds that would pop up, then immediately disappear. I did some short drives around the neighborhood to...

    Hello! I have a 2016 ForTwo Pure (left hand drive) with 43k miles. Does anyone have a write-up or experience replacing the blower motor? I have confirmed that it needs to be replaced or at least cleaned but we are unsure how to get to it without removing the entire dash. Thanks!

    Dear members thanks for your posts and responses. 👍 I personally spent time figuring out what should be the best option to upgrade my (2018 453 Cabriolet) wheels/rims and tires. [Original setup: 165/65/15 (front) diameter 23.4 and 185/60/15 (rear) diameter 23.7]. 👉 Considering multiple...

    Hey, I have a 2016 453 with only 30k miles. I jump started another vehicle, and while I was jump starting it a pop up saying “12v - Stop - See owners manual.” As well my wiper blades stopped working. A few days later and my battery died. I replaced the battery, and now the symbol for 12v still...

    Hi, I've got a 453 (2019) with full JBL sound system. However the bass is absolutely garbage... When I'm driving I can feel a little bass coming from the front of the car, but can't feel bass coming from the subwoofer. So I went to the trunk and had a look at the subwoofer hoping it was...

    Hi guys ! Do you know how to turn off/disable the DRL on the Smart ForTwo 453 ?

    Hey all, I never write bad reviews; I'm more of a move-on and let them rot in their own karma type. But I see that CARiD is sticking its nose into this Smart community, so I need to speak out about my experience with them. I ordered using their drop-down menus for my 2016 Smart ForTwo 1L gas...

    2016 453 gas. Both taillights work when you step on the brakes as does the third brake light, but not when idle. When i turn the light stalk on- the tail lights turn on for a split second then click off. My question is what could be the cause of this? Fuses aren't blown. I don't know which...

    I am having great difficulty finding a 2017 453 manual with options in America. I was wondering if anyone ever bought overseas and imported and if so, what was the process and cost? Did modifications need to be made for emissions?

    Hello! Hope I’m posting this in the right section!😅 Bought 3 weeks ago an all black EQ 2018. Her name is Blackie! It’s my first Smart and my first electric car. Love her so much. But…… Is there a way to have CarPlay in the original Smart Media System? I don’t think a dongle will work since...
