After having my clutch actuator replaced, my 2008 smart passion is showing the maintenance wrench and the P,R,N,D is flashing. It may go out for a short time, then the car will shudder and it comes back. I noticed it as I left the dealer and resolved to call them when I got home. I stoppd to pick something up and when I started the car again it seemed OK. Later, perhaps the next time I had the car out, the wrench and flashing display reappeared.

Any thoughts? I am out of town for a few days, so I can't just take it back tothe dealer. I'll certainly give them a call on Monday, but I can't get the car back to them for a few days. I just poured $1300 into the car (including the current periodic maintenance).

Usually the flashing display means the trans need re-teaching, but it could be other problems too. Try turning the key on and going through the gears and see if it can learn the gears.

It shouldn't be shuddering tho.. sounds like the dealer may have missed something.
