Hi everyone I am a new member with a problem, I have had many Smarts being in the motor business here in Spain, and I have recently retired and decided to keep two for my own use when going into the City or whatever, I have a Pure diesel 2001 only done 37,000 kmts in black, and a convertible 2001 with 57,000 kmts, the black diesel has never been any trouble, but the convertible petrol one seems to have a problem with the electrics, just over one year ago I went to it and it just wouldn't start, so I sent it to our local Mercedes agents and they had it for 3 months, and when they returned it with a bill for 900 €uros they said the key was the problem, since then the radio has not worked either, the car has been knowhere, only done 80 kmts in the last year, and I went to it the other day to take it out and the same problem again, the N will not come up on the dash only ---- it would be interesting to know if anyone else has had this problem, and what they did to cure it.

What comes up instead of 'N'? I ask because what ever comes up relates to different parts of the car.

Three dashes relates to gear fault, one dash relates to a CAN fault and so on...

:RS-c.gl.z if vehicle will not start, and no N in the window - jab footbrake at the same time as selecting gear. I am assuming that this vehicle is semi-automatic; gear selection by tip-tronic where you have paddles each side behind the steeringwheel. If a key shows in the window (shape of a doorkey)use the ignition key as to unlock the car inb the normal way. Then N should should show in the window. I hope this solves the problem.
