451 smart fortwo

smart Car

Hello all ! I got a smart 451 2008 , and last night when I took my car from work my speedometer was not working ! So I cannot see how much I have gas left or anything !

First thing in the morning I've check all my fuse but they are all working !

I've went to my dealership and they cannot check my car until the 19th of August!

I need to find out what could be broken ? Or is it possible that its just unplug ?
Because my power window are working my radio too ?

Do you guys have any idea what it could be ?



Thanks !

i would guess a loose wire or plug behind the speedometer. you're most likely beyond warranty and smart will smack you big time to look at it, time for a flash light and a look-see under the dash. i was blowing fuses playing with my dome light, which also powers the radio, now i read the manual, unplug the dome light before changing that bulb, it'll short out and blow the fuse. worse case, buy a scan guage, that'll tell you how much fuel you have left and how fast you're going.

Where did you get a manual from?

 

Cheers

Manu,

We'll be more than glad to help you!  Couple of options, 1. give us a call at our shop 562-981-6800 during our normal business hours and we can give you quick pointers on how to check to see if it's connected or not; it's real easy. 2.)  Check out this link:

Though you aren't purchasing a cruise control, it will give details on how to connect it to the back of your speedometer, which coincidentally may answer how you check to see if it's connected :)

 

Hope this is of help!

Cheers,
