That's not a good thing will mean many won't be getting a new battery. If you're down 2 bars like the guy on FB was, they reprogram the BMS now it shows 12 bars isn't Nissan just hiding the capacity loss to avoid so many battery replacements? Sure sounds like it to me! After all when has Nissan ever had the consumer's best interest in mind?
After reprogramming the BMS it will be reset and will show all 12 bars. It will settle quickly down to the real capacity within a few weeks of driving as the BMS determines the batteries characteristics. This is normal after a BMS reprogram and not fancy finger-work by Nissan.
Ok so after the BMS settles it's still going to show the battery has more capacity than what it had before doing the update. Which translates to the consumer having to wait longer for a battery replacement. Otherwise Nissan wouldn't bother doing this update in the first place.
So you go to the dealer with 4 bars dropped and instead of getting a new battery they do this update. Then you have to wait a couple weeks for BMS to settle. Now it's showing you're only down 2 or 3 bars. So much for getting your new battery, how is this a good thing for the consumer?
