How to turn off the Reverse beep beep sound?

Wed Jul 18, 2018 4:48 pm

I have Nissan LEAF 2017 S. Is there a way to turn off the back up (reverse) beeping sound ? It's quite annoying, even if it's to alert of people behind the car.

IIRC, you need the Pro version.

We first learned of it via viewtopic.php?f=44&t=23864. Turbo3 ended up adding it to Leaf Spy Pro.

'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)
'06 Prius

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I can do this for anyone for $1 in Vancouver/Portland area.
$1 is to cover for my electricity cost.

In Canada, it’s a required safety feature. In the few short months I’ve owned my Leaf, the reverse sound has potentially avoided 3 altercations with pedestrians, and before someone says, “well than you suck as a driver!”, know that they were potential and I saw them, but they never saw me, but heard me.

I would not disable the chime. If one were in an accident with a pedestrian and it was found one disabled their safety feature, one could find themselves in a heap of trouble.

I put a piece of duct tape over the "beeper" It is still noticeable but not screaming loud anymore.

In B.C. back up alarms required for construction vehicles that can't see behind their equipment are replacing them with "white noise" emitters.

Can't find any law requiring back up alarms requirement on electric cars in Canada

That’s the impression I got from the manual (2018). However, even if it weren’t the case that reverse chimes for EV’s were required, I don’t believe it’s prudent to disable a safety feature that can so easily prevent injury.

BE236 needs to grow up and take what she is given...

She did not like the answer she got on another thread and started it again here.... Don't do that.....

Its not about what YOU want. Its like saying I only want one headlight...
