Questions About 2016 Smart Fortwo Electric Systems

  • Are Smart Fortwo electric vehicle systems more expensive to repair? The answer is, it depends. Certain high voltage parts are only available as components in larger units. We do offer promotional financing through the Firestone credit card.* (*Subject to credit approval.)
  • When do Smart Fortwo brakes need to be replaced? A brake check is one of the best ways to know for sure. Staying on top of your OEM maintenance intervals for Fortwo brakes helps, too. In general, however, front brake pad wear is less in electric vehicles thanks to regenerative braking.
  • My Smart Fortwo dashboard warning light is on. What should I do? Your Smart Fortwo dashboard warning light might be on due to a number or reasons. You may also have a warning light on the dash regarding your high voltage system. Stop by Firestone Complete Auto Care for an electric vehicle diagnostic to learn more.
  • What can cause my Fortwo to leak water? Electric cars use a receiver dryer assembly to help keep the A/C refrigerant free of contaminants, and this process can produce some condensation. When it’s warm outside, this condensation may drain under the vehicle. If you’ve been running the air conditioner in your Fortwo for some time, don’t be too concerned to find a bit of water under it. However, if you discover large amounts of water or any coolant leaking under your vehicle, you may have a problem with the cooling system or another component.

  • How frequently should I have my Smart Fortwo vehicle serviced? To determine the optimal service intervals for your Smart Fortwo, it is important to consider factors such as your driving habits, vehicle age, and mileage. Check your owner's manual or speak with an automotive professional for more specific guidance. Keep in mind that even electric cars require regular maintenance, such as tire rotations, brake inspections, and fluid checks. Additionally, electric cars require maintenance for the battery, brakes, and A/C system.

EV Services for Your 2016 Smart Fortwo

Have you noticed your Smart Fortwo behaving differently? Maybe you've felt less "pep" in its acceleration, or it feels like it is taking forever to go from 0 to 60MPH. If that's the case, our technicians can perform a no-charge* hybrid/electric vehicle check for more details. Perhaps there is trouble inside your Fortwo's high voltage cooling system -- if the high voltage battery is running too hot, it will reduce your battery's performance. Then again, it could be that your Fortwo has Diagnostic Trouble Codes stored in one of its electric modules. Your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care store is ready to offer low voltage and conventional services for all electric cars, and that includes your 2016 Smart Fortwo.

Some Firestone Complete Auto Care locations also offer advanced/high voltage services for electric cars like Smart Fortwos. High voltage services are any that include taking out the Smart's high voltage, service/safety disconnect plug/switch, servicing any high voltage cables, the power inverter, the high voltage electric machines/motors, the high voltage battery pack, high voltage A/C compressor, etc. Call your local store before making an appointment to check if high voltage services are offered.

Your store's high voltage electric vehicle service may include:

Electric vehicle diagnostic: Once we identify the symptoms, a diagnostic is the next step we take when you bring your 2016 Smart Fortwo in to identify the root cause. With that info in hand, a professional technician can further diagnose electric vehicle problems you're having and determine what tests (if any) are needed. No repairs are performed without your consent.

High voltage battery cooling inspection: The technician will closely examine the high voltage battery's filter and, if needed, clean the battery's ducts. (This applies to air-cooled high voltage batteries.  Liquid-cooled or refrigerant-cooled high voltage batteries are inspected differently.)

High voltage cable inspection: Your technician will visually inspect the outer cable jackets and connectors on your 2016 Smart Fortwo and test to ensure high voltage is NOT transferring to the chassis. They'll let you know if the cable needs replacement due to wear and tear.

Isolation test: This test involves using a unique tool to see if any high voltage parts are "leaking" electric energy to the Fortwo's chassis.

Remove and replace high voltage battery: Is your Smart Fortwo's high voltage battery a goner? Sometimes electric vehicle batteries can wear out sooner than you expect in hotter climates or if you use Level 3 fast-charging stations often, since these chargers can heat the battery more. Let us replace it for you.

Health check for the power electronic systems: We'll check the power inverter, electric drive machine(s)/motor(s), and/or regenerative braking in your Smart Fortwo.
