The vehicle runs and the A/C blows cold.  It has a General Lee "wrap" on it.  I replaced the original battery last week, the electronic gearbox wont go in to drive.  I tried ...un hooking the battery and luck.  I priced it to sell to make up for the mechanical difficulty.  The tires are in great shape.  I have owned the car for 3 years and up till this battery mishap....No problems at all.


  1. I prefer the Gulf logo on the Gulf-Wyer blue Fiat 500e.

    Can't find a pic right now.

  2. Is this gearbox failure an electro-mechanical fluke, or did Mercedes design this thing in a way that only a MB/Smart dealer can replace the battery? It sounds very Mercedes to me.

  3. Good find. Excellent. Park in front of sellers house with $999 cash and just wait it out. It's only gonna get hotter.

    1. Bring a whole lot of Dewalt 20V packs.

    2. Actually, if one were looking for an art project, one could do a lot worse than something like a Leaf, a 500E, or one of these with, like, forty Li-Ion drill battery packs hanging on the outside.

  5. Nothing says "I need something that fits in a small parking spot" and "the South shall rise again" like...

  6. Oh man, this needs a gixxer swap and a dixie horn.

  7. $4K!?! I guess I got a good deal on mine... 09 Cabrio for $4.5K. It shifts AND it doesn't have a General Lee wrap!
