Just bought a leaf that is properly messed up. It only manages a measly 15miles
(25km) range. I really need some help.
Spec wise, USA model, 2015, 24kWh, 12bars, 3k miles (5tkm) [I am located in Finland]
Car has had one cell repaired according to service logs, since it has been sitting for most of its lifetime.
So I bought it, thinking it was gonna be OK once the cell was repaired. Oh boi how naive.
So when I started driving it the first time, dash says 12/12bars and 100miles (155km) range. After driving 5miles, dash still reports 11/12bars. After another 5miles, the GOM starts dropping fast, and the bars aswell. After managing the measly 15 miles, GOM is down to 29miles left, 5/12bars and I seriously doubt it will manage another 5miles due to how rapid the GOM goes down. It takes away a mile every other second!
So i fastcharged it. Rinse repeat, same story. Here is how little the fastcharge added back to the car. 2.89kWh.
After the third fastcharge that day, the car went into turtle mode with full battery. Also the "check engine?" light came on.
Whatafaak, I thought turtle mode only was supposed to come on with low battery?
So I had to leave the car in the middle of nowhere, ordered a tow, gonna wait a few days to get it shipped back home.
Help! I am gonna try to get leafspy and check the codes and battery. But something seems so wrong, surely 15miles out of a car with only 3000 miles on it is wrong? Anything similar happened to someone here? I am kinda stuck with the car, since I bought it from a private seller :/
