Re: Center console rebooted while driving

Mine still does it once every year or so for no particular reason... Just one of the quirks.

If after 3 times of taking it in for repair you can replace or return under the Lemon Law.

I asked Nissan about this early last year and was told that when XM sends down updates the infotainment system will reboot to initialize the new software, happens about twice a year or so.

Thanks. I thought about system updates. If it is XM-related, maybe it will stop when my trial subscription expires. It's happened about a dozen times so far so we'll see if it quiets down.

I've never been an XM subscriber and was told that the XM network is used for updating the whole radio, not just the satellite radio portion.

I think that probably carvings is trying to download info, radio is probably off but not always.


The reboot happened to me for the first time in 2 1/2 yrs ownership. My experience is almost identical to yours. Rebooted shortly after pressing OK and BEFORE it 'downloaded info' as it does first thing in the morning. After a quick reboot (blue e) the 'downloading info' came up. I was listening to XM Radio at the time. I have no idea if I have received any Nav system updates or not. I'll ask for one at the 45,000 mile service in a few months.

As an aside the 'downloading info' message has always bugged me, during this process CarWings is receiving the latest drives from the vehicle, it uploads much more than it ever downloads. I suppose they don't want you to think big brother is watching by saying 'uploading info', which we all know he is.

I don't believe this is true since I have never seen the version number increment. I think it is primary channel change info and the like...

Our leaf has now encountered this rebooting problem. It reboots about every five minutes while driving, This started about three weeks ago and has not cleared itself as I was hoping. . I brought it to the dealer for the annual battery check and asked them to look at it and they said its out of warranty so I have to pay for all the troubleshooting time and then any parts needed to fix it. It's in the service bay now. Let's hope its resettable in the software or I may be looking at aftermarket center console options.
