    Default Only Park and Neutral

    So after sitting for a month and a half I finally fixed the blower motor. Now I only have Park and Neutral. What now? Evertime this car sits something eletrical breaks. I'm sure it's something that happens alot. Since you guys are my experts, what do I need to fix now.

    PS The blower was extremely easy, thanks for the help. I shouldn't have put it off for so long. It took 5 minutes to fix.

    Remind me... is this a US car ?


    I'd guess you've at worse got a stuck clutch, .....or dodgy actuator. At best it might be the brake pedal switch.

    Is neutral actually neutral ? can you push it along ?

    Park is P
    Reverse is Blank
    Neutral is N
    Drive Gears are blank, or N if I stop at neutral first before trying drive.

    When you move the gear selector into D or R, do you hear anything moving (might be better doing this with the engine off and the key in position 2)? If you hear mechanical movement, I'd check the sensors around the gearbox. If not, I'd check the actuator, lubricating it with White Lithium Grease first to see if it helps. I'd also check the wires leading to the actuator/gearbox are not chafed as well.

    First Stick it in N and see if the car is free to roll ((level ground)

    Well it just started working again. Every time the Smart car sits, weird eletrical stuff goes wrong. Been driving it for 2 weeks with no trans problems. I was intermittent every other time I tried to drive it. But it's ok now.

    Battery was getting depleted? Did you recharge it?

    No, I just decided I would drive it to my Grandpa's house and mess with it over there, and it never stopped working again.
