2005 Smart Other • 2WD Manual •
I have a Smart Forfour, the battery has been flat, changed the battery and absolutely no electricity whatsoever (no clock on dashboard etc), think new one was duff - but when I put the old one back in although the clock shows etc I can't jumpstart it with leads - any ideas?
Use a DVOM check voltage at BATT then from BATT POS to engine block
Understand the meter reading from battery -but where do I test after that ? Could it be an issue with the alternator ?
Suspect battey cable or connection fault. so measuring voltage fron batt terminal to block will test good connection
