Customer Question
I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 Smart Car. I screwed up the wiring when I replaced the battery. Can you help me?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked all the fuses? Do you have a wiring diagram?

I need a wiring diagram

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '08 smart?

It's a fortwo

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Fortwo yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I'm doing it myself. I swapped out the battery. I think I just need a photo of the battery well and maybe a wiring diagram.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that's it
