When the check engine light comes on its to tell you something is wrong,like a bad sensor or other emmsion controls, there are many reasons for light to come on like 50 to 75 diffrent things can make light come on, you will need to have the computer scanned for codes,when ever the light comes on the computer stores codes of why it was turned on, these codes will help in finding the problem, there are autopart stores that will scan it for free and give you the codes, if you get the codes i could help a little more, start with getting the codes, also as long as the light is not flashing your not causing any damage but should be checked. hope this helps.

Hi, how do I correct an error code C1446 for a 2011 Smart Fortwo 1L engine? Thank you!


Smart Fortwo C1446 Possible Solution : The crankshaft sensor signals the fuel injection computer or the ignition control when the cylinders are firing. This causes the ignition coil to provide a spark and the injector to inject fuel into each cylinder at the right time.If either sensor isn't working correctly, the car will run rough and the engine will be less efficient. In later car models, the car's computer can usually keep the vehicle running, but the engine warning light on the dashboard goes on to warn the driver
