a heads up for those that have an ef (may affect other models too), that the interior light fuse is VERY important if you want your car to start.

for some reason, smartlock won't let your car start, unless this fuse in working.

(yes, you guessed it, I found out the hard way)

so keep a few handy in the glove box

Also if the globe in the interior light is blown or missing it can have the same effect :roll: :twisted: :twisted:

The domelight being blown or missing will not affect smartlock power in any way.
The CRT LP fuse is the relevant item.
