I usualle reserve my "hardness" to women,... :-P


There are more tips&tricks on how to install the kit in this thread: http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=20446

And for those who needs to remove the kit at the end of lease can get a replacement blank cover from their Nissan dealer or online for about $ 15 using partnumber: 68492AX000

Ordered my harness from Tor - Certainly can wait for august for lower cost shipping as I don't expect to need the heat for a while....

I've lived with my 2012 Leaf's "unusual" heater logic for a year and half - in South Texas (never need the actual heater with the great seat and steering htrs). Watching the energy monitor, adjusting controls to minimize the obvious heater draw is quite distracting!! I wonder if others have missed this very informative and useful simple mod(s) - especially for us in the secondary market . I did similar mods on my 1984 Corvette to offset the F/A ratio of the throttle body injectors - a bit simpler then with all discrete components.

Kudos to member BetterLeaf. Appears he/she dropped out of the forum? Anyone know if there is contact information available for this member?

I plan on making the #2 mods - just makes sense for me.

I used "Method 1" on my 2011 to keep the heater from wasting power. Under moderate temperature conditions, the heater would sometimes draw power when A/C was cooling so I kept the resistor in place all year unless I needed defrost. I would buy Tor's plug and play kit if I still had the 2011. Here is a link to the plug and play thread: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=20446#p434884

Sorry for the very late reply,

Are you Jan? If so; I thought I have sent you e-mails, and sent you a harness.
If you are not Jan: Try complete an order on the website, or contact me via the e-mail at the bottom of the page. I am not allowed to write the e-mail or phone on this forum, but all is accessible on the webshop.

I am still here, but have been absent for a while. Harnesses have been shipped out despite my lack of responses on the forum.


I few good news: I am FINALLY getting ready to get the ad-on ready. It has been a pain, and 6 months delay. Even though the actual end result is easy it has been a difficult. The kit will not be perfect, but due to cost it is not possible to get the perfect kit. Within a few weeks I will upload a "installation video" on my Leafmanleaf youtube channel. And a few weeks after the I will open for preorder on my betterleaf webshop.

Price for the add-on will be about 10 USD + shipping.
