Question about Smart fortwo

1 Answer

We have an X reg Smart Car, and when we drive along the engine suddenly cuts out and we come to a halt. Then it won't start up again for 15 - 20 minutes. Today we managed 5 miles and then the engine just stopped with the battery light coming on. We had it fully serviced a few days ago hoping it might clear something but it didn't make any difference, in fact it seems worse. Does anyone have any ideas? The RAC tested it a month ago on their computer and it did not show any electrical fault. We would be greatful for any ideas!! Best regards Joy

    Thank you. We did have the fuel filter changed in the service. Is it easy for us personally to check if fuel is coming up to injectors, or will we have to take it to a garage? What about cleaning the petrol tank? It is very low to the ground and difficult to work on, especially when you don't know that much about repairing cars :o)
    Thank you, Joy

Sounds like a fuel problem possibly dirt in the petrol tank .change fuel filter first if that doesnt work the tank will need to be removed and cleaned orcheck if there is fuel coming up to injecters next time it cuts out

When driving suddenly the engine cuts out.


I heave the same problem on my Corsa B 1.0 2000, engine cuts out, and whe it happens, I hear one of the relay under the right side of the dash buzzing. After a couple of minutes, starts like nothing happend.
So far I manage to find that the speed sensor is faulty, when I tap him the car stops. I order a brand new one, but I'm not sure that was the issue.
I order also a Opel Tech2 tester from ebay and it has to arrive next week, then I can see the error code.

My Audi keeps cutting out!


the problem is in the voltage regulator
IT is probably in the ECM which will require an ECM replacement
get it to an accredited auto electrician for a full check of the charge system to eliminate all faults , fires etc

Vehicle Stall - Ford Focus X Reg


I will suggest some cheap areas to try first.
1.Wiring connections to your computer under the dash.
2.Check wiring to fuel pump.
3.Check black boxes under hood. They have relays and terminals may corrode.
4.Ignition switch, sometimes with heavy keychains the contacts can loosen.

Take it to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. When you say car cuts out, does anything work like lights, horn, radio? Please post symptoms and if anything has helped you.

This problem apears when the battery has been diconected for some time. Start the car, and leave in in idle without driving it for about 10 min. The car runs fine after that.
