Guidance needed! I just purchased a 2016 Smart Fortwo in the US&A. It is in excellent physical condition. It sat too long. I'll attach images of the dash warnings & door jam stickers. I am in New York. I was wondering if I should disconnect and/or remove the HV battery immediately or if that matters at this point. My biggest concern is that the temperature is dropping below freezing now that the winter is here. I don't want to waste time trying to learn by watching videos and searching for answers in the forums which I know are probably there. Guide me through the basics please. Thank you very much in advance.

Yes, your best option is to cancel the sale. If you can't, and have the space and DIY skills, you can attempt a de-bricking using the various information and small garage-level businesses that provide BMS reprogramming and parts that can be found in this forum.

Temperatures below freezing are no problem.

Did the 12V battery die?
It was dead, but, I was able to recharge it.
