About Me
I'm a patient kinda guy. Always liked small cars. Owned a 77 VW bug, 80 Dodge Colt, Some small Chevy I can't remember the name. Oh, and my first "real" car was a Spider! Camping in the mountains next to a lake can't be beat. Crowds are a no-no.
Love to go to local places with my wife.

Locking & Unlocking with the Key buttons

Posted on October 17, 2008 at 3:11pm 13 Comments

Does the beep .. Beep ... Beep when you lock and unlock things from the Key Fob annoy you?

This was a question I just saw in the polls.
My smart doesn't beep when I use the buttons on the key.
Am I deaf or is Mr. Zip Dumb ????

Hi Richard,
Thanks for the insurance info. I didn't know if anything could be done or not. I was really pissed and the lady knew it. I am just happy that nothing happened. With this special paint job I worry even more.

Hi, Richard--
I just bought a Smart Car. What kind of hitch do you have on yours. I found that UHaul sells a Curt hitch. I'm wondering how well a Smart Car will pull a teardrop trailer. I've been looking at the Little Guy trailers that weigh about 880 pounds. Any thoughts? What are you planning to tow?.

Richard, the company that made the chains I have is
RUD CHAIN INC. There number is 800-553-7993.
They have a website and that is The part number on my chain is
02-1520. The company I purchased them from is a German company. I purchased mine from Tire Chain Supply . The part number on their order is
02-1520. If you would like to contact them direct my order number was #1790 maybe that reference will help you out. I asked them specificially if these chains would work on my smart and was told they would.
I hope this helps you out.

Richard, I am not where the chains are. I am in Arizona and they are in Texas. I will be back in Texas on Tuesday or Wednesday. If you will send me something to "jar" my memory I will check my chains.

Lord I would have NO CLUE where or how to check the oil, where I live I doubt anyone else would know as the gas stations are still smiling as they have never seen one? So if you can't help me I guess I will have to look in the book to see, finding it would be scary to me...

I am loving my new car! What a thrill to drive! My 6'5" boyfriend jumped right in and drove it last night. He loves it also...was a little leery about the size but he fits in it just fine. Yeah, the car payment doesn't seem so bad now, especially with gas savings I'll be getting, not to mention not having to get the oil changed every 3,000 miles....34 miles one way to work adds up, even carpooling. Bet you can't wait till next week, enjoy!

Richard, I live in San Pedro and have an ocean view. Last evening I noticed a car carrier ship heading north fron Los Angeles. Today I got a call saying my car is in Long Beach.. I would say the ship I saw yesterday is close to the bay area today. Make a phone call tomarrow and you just might be very happy by this weekend. Good luck.
