+1 on the battery check.
Also, it looks like there's a Nissan in Whitehorse. Is it not possible for you to get serviced there? The brake relay recall was software update only, iirc.
Yes... the Nissan dealer in Whitehorse (about 120 miles from me), in theory could do the work and I'm planning on checking with them. But, from past experience with other cars I've owned, the Canadian branches of auto manufactures are usually not keen on doing warranty or recall work on US vehicles. Also, I know that the Whitehorse dealer doesn't even know what a LEAF is. They don't sell them because nobody in the Yukon Territory is crazy enough to even consider an EV
And also, I still have to get it up there, and that is not an easy proposition since there is NOTHING between here and there except a very steep mountain pass, (with mountain goats, bears, moose, and this time of year, -40 degree air temps), and no places to recharge. So still a challenge, but I do plan to give them a call tomorrow. I suppose I could always arrange for an expensive tow if necessary.
