I recently used a foxwell nt630 on my 2013(451) to reset the airbag light. I don't see why it wouldn't work on 453. Seems like it's around 150 American pesos online so not too bad. I might get me one at some point. Not sure if it reads esp or abs codes though. I personally use a cheap Chinese Bluetooth OBD2 dongle. It stays plugged in at all times. I know it draws some current but it never got me stranded. It did save my car once when I lost some coolant somewhere somehow and the car started overheating. All I got was a check engine light and all I had to do is open torque on my phone and I saw it immediately. At about 4 bucks I think it's the cheapest insurance you can get.
Hi, it's been a few years since posted in here. Since then, my wife just picked up a 2016 Fortwo. I would like to get a good quality scanner for it for help with troubleshooting, and resetting that can read Smart Car specific codes. I'm on a small island up in Alaska, 800 miles from the nearest dealer. At $2000 a round trip just for the car, a good scanner would be handy. I found a couple online that say they work on the Fortwo but like to hear from some hands on experiences. Hopefully the same model can read 2008 Fortwo if I'm ever can get back workingnon my wife's old car. Thanx in advance
