Having issues?

Make sure you have power.

SMART does require power - so if you skipped The Fundamentals Step 3 - head back above and charge up your device.

  • Check to make sure SMART and Fuel Mod are both fully charged. 
  • Use the supplied Y Micro USB cable.
    (other cables don't always meet our rigid quality standards)

Try a hard factory reset.

SMART operates on sophisticated software - and sometimes software is...well...soft. A hard reset might do the trick. Here's how to do it.

  • Remove all SMARTMOD™  accessories and cables from the back of SMART.
  • Find, press, and hold the power button down for ~15 seconds. All LEDs will turn off.  You've now reset SMART.
