On a LHD car the relay is located on the main wiring harness behind the instrument cluster. You could try shinning a torch at the bulb and that way you my see if it's burned out by the reflection in the reflector. All I can suggest is to find your radio code first then, disconnect the battery for 15 minutes or so to see if the problem clears.

I pulled every relay out of the fusebox and still managed to turn the lights on! http://www.smartz.co.uk/showthread.php?10982-Headlights-not-working The proper way to refinish headlight lenses is to use a fine 1,500-grit sandpaper to clean off the fogged part of the plastic.

If only one headlight is working, then the other headlight bulb is probably burnt out. Skin oil makes an excellent lubricant. Firmly press back the lightstalk end. It is a very tough fit, but will pop off.

Push the new bulb into the connector. http://www.fq101.co.uk/how-to-guides/fortwo-450/interior/146-light-stalk-fix.html Look for charring, burning, overheating or any damage. The ohms of impedance reading for a good fuse should be about zero. Loading...

It would massively help if you could state the year and exact model as Smart have made quite a few different models now. http://atomirc.net/smart-car/smart-car-speedometer-not-working.html The same switch is used for the turn signals as well. When headlight lenses become fogged, it reduces the ability of the light to shine through the lens. The 4 wires that feed the lights are shown below. 450 & Roadster 1 - Grey/Red - Left Low Beam 2 - Blue/Green - Right Low beam 3 - White -

Greetings, do your 'high' beam head lights work? The stalk end will come off, and you'll be left with the twist connectors.

Is it getting power? If not, check the fuses (700cc Fortwo, 451, Roadster) Still Doesn't Work! (Or The Bulb Is Dim) Check the bulb connector with a multimeter. Ensure you have the small bullet spring which will come out of the hole on the stalk frame.

It may just be that both low beam head lights have burned out, as already suggested.

Those can be hard to find, requiring a schematic to know how the wiring is run and a multimeter to check the wires.

There is a chance that with the headlights on, you will still get a reading of approximately 12 volts. Danilo Larato 171,627 views 7:09 How to Install the SMART MADNESS HID Lights - Duration: 13:52.
