Go here for a nice photo of the pyrofuse location with the seats and carpet removed - its the largest object under the driver's side:hopefully will look at it tonight , module under driver seat is first place I will look.
there is an inertia switch somewhere, need to find it.
I have MB software with manuals will look there
Hi, I have the exact problem on my 2014 Smart ED.I have a 2014 Smart ED I purchased in May of 2014 with around 1800 miles on it. I tried to drive it yesterday but the doors were locked and the remote key would not unlock them. I used the key the old fashioned way to get in and found all power was off. I found the 12 volt battery (why is there one anyway) and attached a trickle charger overnight. Now when I turn on the key I get a couple a weird message on the dash. "HV System Workshop" . Also the red battery light is on.
Do I have a defective 12 volt battery? I know if you only drive a gas engine auto on short trips your battery will eventually give out. is that the same with the Smart ED? If so thats crazy since thats the purpose of a Smart ED- short intown trips.:shrug:
Does the car operate while there is charge in the 12V battery?Hi, I have the exact problem on my 2014 Smart ED.
I recharged the 12 volt battery and it still did not retain a charge.
Can I ask what brand battery did you put in?
Was itan OEM or an equivelent?
How did you clear the HV workshop errror?
Hmm, I never heard the report of that happening on "someone else's car," i.e. me being that someone else.I've gotten that error to appear a few times during the development of the battery scanner tool.
In our case, it always was a temporary fault from a wiring or coding error and went away after removing the device with a few cycles of turning the car on and off. It's a scary looking warning (especially when I caused it on someone else's car), but I wouldn't get too worried just yet as it might go away on its own very shortly.
My autel resets all codes on my 2013 smart ed. Even the workshop one. Mine had a chaffed wire that needed repairYou could try the procedure that resets the maintenance minder. If that doesn't work, you probably need the dealer's computer to clear the error.
Was also looking at this.I have the autel md802 maxdiag elite from 2017
I allows you to add many makes models for at least 1st year, sees all batt voltage, hundreds of sensors steeringle angle etc. And resets all modules. More support than others for under $200
