Your welcome.
We are still learning all the knobs and buttons.
The window wipers have been a challenge. I usually have both front and back going and always hit the washers.
Good luck and have fun. We love ours, we got it for a tow for our Motorhome so far it's the only car we drive, it is so much fun.

Lisa push the door unlock on the key or on the dash. That will open the right door, the rear hatch, and the gas tank. Kathy in Ca.

Thanks!  I'm curious to know about our new car and that was one thing I couldn't find in the manual.

Hi Mark! The light you are referring to is a temperature sensor.

Nothing I have done has made it light up yet.  If it does light up.

Comment by Kathleen Manoff on January 7, 2015 at 11:57pm
Sorry haven't a clue. Would it light up when the heater or air is on ? Kathy

Just received our new 2015 smart electric drive and having fun learning all about it.  Small question - at the bottom of the heat/air distribution knob there appears to be an LED.  What is this about?  So far I haven't located anything about it in the manual, thanks!

I bought a 2009 Used Smart Car from a dealer that had 6700 miles on it 3 years ago. It now has 12,000 miles on it and the engine light came on. I took it to dealer only to find out that it needs the Fuel Sensors replaced on top of gas tank! They are plastic, and where out often. With no warranty on it the cost is over $1200.00 to repair!! It requires dropping the engine out....Good Grief! I have only driven the car 6000 miles!
