  1. Radio Reception

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Has anyone had the antenna booster go out on their smart? This would be the power module that is behind the front left quarter panel. I ask because my reception went to hell about 3 months ago, around the same time my fuel pump went out actually. I know the Smart never had great reception in...

    smart Towing
    New owner, getting Blue Ox baseplate and wiring harness installed next Wednesday. Will also ask to have a battery disconnect switch but where to mount it? Do members have such a switch and is it ossicle to mount inside the glove compartment. Thinking this might be good spot.
  4. Headlight wiring issues

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    We just brought our 2010 Smart Coupe home yesterday. One of the issues with it is that the drivers side headlight doesn't work. Unfortunately it's not going to be a quick fix, somebody had jerry-rigged the socket with a replacement and the wires were scorched. I fixed that mess but there's...

    Audio & Video
    For anyone buying the Metra Turbo Wire Harness adapter from Smart Madness, or other sources (Part Number 70-1783) Be advised it will not work out of the package. Apparently smart moved some wires around. You will need to relocate the Orange (Dim) and Red (IGN) wires to land into the car's...
  11. Towing Capacity, Wiring Harness, and Trailer Opinions

    smart Towing
    Hi all, Let me start by saying that I have scoured the forums and the web trying to find answers to my questions, but have only found a lot of vague references. So, I'm not posting these questions without having tried to find the answers first. First off, what is the "unofficial" towing...

    Is there any installation tips for connecting the reverse sensor wire or running the RCA plug for the reverse camera to a Kenwood? I've read on some posts that splicing into the reverse wire behind the rear left lights is best, and I can see those wires, but are there any helpful tips for...

  14. Roadmaster couldn't wire it

    smart Towing
    I spent seven hours at Roadmaster in Portland (this is the factory) having tow brackets installed (that was the easy part). They were also wiring the tail lights into the motorhome harness for me and after five hours, couldn't make it work. Something about a feedback circuit that was created...
