So i've been part of the smart family for over a month now, so far I am loving it. Not only am I a new smart owner I'm also a new driver as well. I decided that my first vehicle purchase would be a smart fortwo, so I went all out and got me a 2010 smart fortwo passion cabrio convertible. Never noticed until now that the auto lock isn't working, I mean when I press the lock button on the key it makes noises and even lights up so I always thought it did it's thing and locked. Until last night when I went to leave the car I locked it but remembered that I left something inside but before I could press unlock on the key I managed to open the door first and just like that it opened. So i tried pressing the lock button twice, nothing still open, flustered I decided to just lock it manually with the key from outside, i tried left still and tried right still open. I went inside to see maybe i can close from inside. So on the center of the dashboard is your hazard lights, on the right is your unlock button and to the left of the hazard lights is your lock button. When you press the unlock button it makes your typical unlocking noise but when i hit the lock button I get complete silent. I was thinking maybe it was the fuse? If you guys have any advice on what the issue could be is very much appreciated, my smart is unlocked at the moment anything will help thanks.

Make sure your trunk or passenger door is not open. The rear hatch might be just resting on the tailgate.
When you press the lock button on your keyfob you should get one blink from the corner lights. If you get multiple fast blinks then you have one door/trunk open. If you get something like 7 set blinks then the battery on your remote is dying

The outside key slot will only unlock the door. It WILL NOT lock the door. Works with a cable and the cable can only pull on the internal lock mechanism, it can’t push on the mechanism to lock the door.

Thanks it worked, not sure what was opened but I just made sure they were including the glass window in the back. Once I did that i pressed lock on my key and this time the lights flashed twice, went and checked and it was closed. Thank you!

I'm so jealous of the Canadian Smarts. A SGT from my deployment said a gentleman went to Canada, bought a CDI and had a shop install it. He also brought his gasser back to the US and sold it.
