Has anyone tried this in a 2014 LEAF?

I just unplugged the module in my 2014. I don't miss the charge noises. The key fob noises still work.

I would be interested in doing this on a 2014. Where is it? Still under the glove box? I wish they had the switch on 2014 like earlier years.

This question was poised, unanswerded, in 2013... it's almost 2015, but quick answer... The startup song that plays can be turned off by running the menus using the four buttons to the left of the steering wheel. It's also documented in the manual.

Anybody know what kind of connector is on the VSP module and what each pin does??

I'd like to put an inline module that I can just plug into the VSP module and then have the stock cable plug into the custom module.

Or buy a 2011-12 LEAF that used to have the simple switch to turn off the noise when you wanted to.
If you buy a low cost 2011 and get the Lizard battery for $5,500 it can be a good deal. Get one with s Fast Charge port if your in a hurry since the 3.3 kW on board charging seems slow after having faster charging.

Or but a FORD Focus EV with No back up sound, 6.6 kW and liquid cooling batteries . I have no capacity loss after 2 years in the Phoenix heat =D------

I think there might be a much simpler way to disable the VSP. I'd try it myself, but the VSP sound doesn't really bother me at all. According to the manual, the VSP module only begins making the VSP sound when the Leaf is in Drive AND the brake pedal is released.

So, if one were to simply cut the wire to pin #12, the brake switch input, and tie it to pin #11, switched battery power, the VSP module should think the brake is pressed all the time, so it will never make a sound. Anyone care to try it? ;)

Interesting. I don't know if that would stop the backup sound though. Doesn't it make that sound even when the break is pressed? Of course, I don't have a LEAF anymore so I couldn't test anyway.
