Re: Driver Door Handle Problem

Tue Sep 25, 2018 6:50 am

After replacing my door handle last week on my 2015, I got a I-Key System Error. I have had no issues with the car since new. It has 14700 miles on it. They told me warranty is over because it’s from the date of being built. (Crap warranty) This is my second leaf and I love them as a second vehicle. So I went and got the OBD2 and downloaded LeafSpy and I’ll admit it’s a cool ap, what does all that mean? I downloaded the DTC’s and OMG! 23 of them. Yes I unplugged battery a total of two times in a two week period. Still the same. I bought the obd to clear out the DTC’s but then I read more and It’s not recommended. I had my 12v battery replaced about 10months ago and let me tell you, you will know when it’s bad. The whole car freaks out. I did test my 12 volt battery and it’s at 12.8 volts. I hooked charger on it walked away checked on it and charger said full. Not sure if it topped it off or if anything at all. So any advise would be great.
Thanks!

AthensGA1,

The Nissan warranties start when the car is first placed into service (not manufacture date). Bumper-to-bumper is 3 years or 36,000 miles; power train, EV system. and battery capacity are5 years or 60,000 miles; and battery manufacture defect is 8 years or 100,000 miles. I suggest that you confirm the in service date to verify warranty coverage.

I also replaced the passenger door handle on a 2015 SV. One of the plugs did not fit, but after removing some material I made it click in. Everything now works. Keyless entry. All the buttons inside the door and on the handle work. --- There is only this I-Key system error that gets displayed as a warning.
I disconnected the battery. That didn't help.
My OBD connects, to the phone (running Torque) but not to the ECU. So I cannot clear the DTC codes.
Any help would be appreciated greatly.

found this thread after our rear door handle literally fell off when we tried to open the door. I have a very early 2011. Thanks for starting this topic and for the youtube video! It looks like an easy fix if I can get the door open. We have the child locks on so I can't open from the inside. :(

My 2013 S started having the driver door handle problem (separation of the plastic chrome colored piece from the backing) about 2-3 yrs ago. I fixed it with superglue, but only held for a month or two. Has been loose ever since, and not a problem other than annoyingly reminding me that it is not right. Perhaps I'll try the JB Weld fix.
