Yay :-(

Re: NissanConnect EV / Telematics Hardware Update, for the post-2G world

I was kind of surprised yesterday when I received a phone call from my dealer advising me that my 2011, which I've always had serviced there, was due for it's maintenance inspection and to have recall work done. They told me that the recall was for the 2G to 3G upgrade. I purposely never upgraded as I rarely used it and read of the problems with it. I asked about the $200 cost and was told it was complimentary. As I like to keep the car in the best shape possible and knowing the early backstory of this upgrade, I am asking myself whether I should leave well enough alone or gamble that has there been headway made in the "fuse pulling" situation. I'm seeing some posts here about a resolution and wonder if they are calling me because they found one or just need to clear modems off the shelf. I've always had great service from the Dealer (United Nissan) but would hate to open a can of aggravation.

If it's a yellow ! car, it should go away after a couple power cycles, but may return.

If you have Leaf Spy, would be curious to know the DTCs and if any are the P3131 we've posted about. If so, clear it and see if the yellow ! car returns, accompanied by P3131.

No new update for me from viewtopic.php?p=499192#p499192. I haven't gotten any more of the above issues after doing what I mentioned there. Receipt of charging stopped/complete emails from Nissan Connect is still intermittent.

It did clear after a couple days. I didn't get Leaf spy on it in time.

Seems ok now. I don't get any charging notifications but I can turn on my A/C which is the most important thing.

I'd suggest waiting. The old unit will do no harm, the new unit might cause 12V battery problems.

Once there are second generation upgrades out for 6 months or so with few reports of issues, then upgrade.

Let those of us that use the feature more debug it.

If you would be so kind, can you try to find out the recall number associated with this? I'd love to contact my dealer to see if I could get it done as part of a recall, and I'm sure others on the forum would too, so you'd be help many of your fellow long-time LEAFers. :D

Thanks in advance!

Even if the yellow ! car goes away, the DTCs should still be stored.

The story sounded strange so I went to to the dealer to confirm the offer and see if the probs have been solved. The probs still exist but they are waiting for a fix and the phone call was legitimately placed but the info was wrong. $199. makes this an easy decision. used it only to update charging locations but with plugshare it is not needed at all.
