sounds like a happy resolution. you might want to update subject to 'resolved'.
The forum for all aspects of the Nissan Leaf
Is it too much trouble to unplug before running people over? Some people are pretty lazy.gbarry42 wrote:someone complaining that you could still run people over with the EVSE attached. So I went home and tried it.
That was "Take a break". This is the "Driver alert" option you can set under "Alarms" in the Trip Computer Options menu. The Trip Computer is the display in the bottom center of the dash, controlled by the top two buttons in the group of four on the left side of the steering wheel. I always turn that option off.isthmus wrote:Today i was driving and I see in the display a picture of a coffee mug with a message to "Take a brake".. never seen that before

It seems like the EVSE release button won't depress all the way down. I took the charger to the dealer's service dept and they told me that they cannot do anything about it since it's not a Nissan part. Does this sound right? Also, he told me the the charger is made by Aerovironment. Is that correct? Lastly, who else can I contact besides my dealer?
So you are talking about the Level 1 (120 volt) EVSE that came with the car, also known as the "trickle charge cable". That should have a manufacturer label on it, but I think they are all made by Panasonic.ehwang114 wrote:OK, cwerdna, let me rephrase for the uneducated folks like myself. That thing that came in the black bag in the trunk of my Leaf is broken. You know, it plugs into the wall on one end and the other end goes directly into my Leaf. Well, the part that goes directly into my Leaf won't unhook.
