What is Leaf Spy and How do I use it?

Sat Mar 03, 2018 6:24 pm

Hello all,

I'm about to go look at a clean 2013 Leaf on CL in Orange County, CA. ... 26967.html

I don't want any surprises (obviously). Can I use the Leaf Spy even though I'm just looking at the car? How do I do it? What things should I be looking for?

Thank you all so much. I am brand new to this and don't own a Leaf yet.

Thank you!!

The app requires a compatible (with Leaf Spy, not just any random one) OBD2 dongle so that your phone/tablet can communicate w/the car via its OBD2 port.
