cruise control

  1. 453
    This is a odd one. I've been driving this on Interstate for 3 weeks now. And today when I'm off to a service call, turn on the cruse control, get a ding, yellow box message that "Cruse Control is Un-available" message on the display. This is odd since I was using cruse control to the office...

    we got our esmart about 10 days ago. We really like it and are learning to work with the restrictions that come with EV driving. A couple of issues though: 1. There is no cruise control. We waited 4 months to get an EV with cruise control, but after it arrived, the sales guy said that the car...

    Hi everyone, the forum is new to me and this is my very first posting even though I have had my 2010 Passion Coupe since July 2010. I would like to have Cruise Control installed in my Passion Coupe, however I have not been able to find anyone to install one for me. I live in Beaverton, Oregon...

    It would be nice if that where the case. If so then I am for sure going to put in my smart!

    I'm trying to gauge interest in an Area 451 Cruise Control install party put on by SmartieParts in the Seattle area. He will be doing one in Boise towards the end of March. If we give him enough time, he can do the install before or after the Boise party (his flight goes through Seatac). The...

    Is that an option for a 451? Or does it not exist?

    Wife bought a Smart finally. Her name is Bea - the car, not my wife. Passion, cabrio, tinted windows, heated seats. White with silver Tridion, tan interior. Gonna do custom paint. Looking at all the possibilities. Maybe a zebra stripe of just a cool color. Chandler Smart Center was awesome. We...

    I just obtained an MDC cruise control, but it has no instructions - anyone out there have the installation instructions they would be willing to share with me?

    Hello folks. For those that don't know me, my name is Steven Morehouse and I run the SmartieParts store in BC Canada. I also distribute the popular Area 451 Parts cruise control. I have possibly a reason to be in the DFW area in May but with today's economy I simply can't justify the trip...

    I just completed the install of the Area 451 cruise control. It does not look like much when you get it out of the box. There is no servo, none is needed, and there is nothing to install on the engine. Who wudda thunk it. It took about an hour to install the mod on the wiper control arm...

    The Area 451 cruise control is now available and being sold by the sole retailer SmartieParts. The price is right and it looks like it is going to be a great option for the smart. I am rather far down the list for one of these and would very much appreciate it if one of you who is near the top...
