Center console rebooted while driving

Mon Jun 20, 2011 11:43 pm

I was driving and using nav. MP3s were playing from the USB port. I decided I was going to see what charging stations were nearby since I was in an area I had not driven the car before. I tap the screen and it blacked out, music goes silent. Next it is playing the start up music and a second later the nag screen appears. I hit accept, the music picks up right where it left off and the nav voice says "right turn ahead" picking up where it had left off too.

It had not happen before or since. Seems like a one time event. Has anyone else seen this failure?

I've had three reboots while driving since I got the car... I was not doing anything at the time but listening to XM radio with the Nav screen up.

Disconcerting yes but good to know the reboot is quick and seemingly without consequences

I recently had the center console reboot for the first time. I had just left my driveway in the morning and FM radio was playing. It went silent and when I looked down at the console I saw the "e" splash screen. The system restarted and the radio resumed play. Hope this was a one time event. Anybody else have a recurrence?

Hmmm... I wonder if these cars passed Nissan's "lightning bolt test". Check this video at the 1:19 mark.

I would. That's the only way the Nissan engineers are going to be alerted to the problems--and find fixes/solutions.

I agree.
But call the dealer first and describe the problem accurately,
giving them time to research it with the LEAF Task Force.

That might save you several days in the shop.

If you can, video-record the problem actually happening.

check the "run backup camera all the time" thread... (actually not sure of its exact title but that is the subject)

after exiting that function. the screen goes thru the "reboot" animation but i am beginning to think that is not what it is doing. it appears more like its a bug that is bringing up the "i accept" screen. iow, "another" carwings bug

but then again; i maybe wrong, but if one were playing the odds...
