I have a 2008 SmartCar for two (Pure) in Houston and left the key in the accessory position for 5 days and it was dead. Tried jumping per manual, but no start. Replaced battery - no start, just some clicking in the back.

I noticed that it is locked in park and I can't shift it to back out of garage to get a tow to mechanic/dealer.

Any suggestion as to the problem or what I should do (except throw a tarp over it and forget about it!)?

Dome lights and dash both work OK and bars on dash, but no start!

You could have gotten a bad replacement battery, The clicking sound could be the starter/relay unable to work because of low voltage. Most new batteries are not charged.
