Warning tone after turning off

Thu Feb 01, 2018 11:25 am

Recently when I turn off my 2015 leaf a loud tone starts and will not turn off for about 2-3 minutes.
Annoying and worrying.

Are you leaving the headlights on?

No, during the day time. It is not that sound. It is a constant tone.

That sounds like you are leaving the car while it is on, with the key fob..?

The LEAF also has this weird thing where it will beep at you after you turn it off IF you have opened the driver's door before you turned it off. I doubt this is it since I don't think it is a constant tone and it stops once you close the door. As long as you leave the door open, it will keep beeping at you.

A workaround for this is to open then close one of the other doors.

I have the same issue with a 2012 Leaf that I recently purchased. Constant loud warning tone that lasts 2 to to 3 minutes after turning the car off. Anyone know what might be causing it?

For me was low voltage on 12 volt battery. Recharged and it went away.

Low voltage on the 12 volt battery was the problem for me as well. I replaced the 12 volt battery a couple months ago and the loud buzzing after turning off the car went away.
