How to turn off back up (reverse) beeping sound?

Thu Jul 19, 2018 10:25 am

I have Nissan LEAF 2017 S.

I know the Reverse beeping is to alert people behind the car as you back up.

Still, is there a way to turn off this sound feature or lower its volume?

Ok, just ordered OBD2 reader (EM327 generic brand, it says version 1.5 from eBay. Hope I get v1.5, and not the v2.1 that many people say dont work with LEAF Spy).

Better for you, anyway. At least until/unless you back into someone and they sue you. Pedestrians seem to ignore Leafs as it is.

If there's a pedestrian standing in front of my garage door at 5am, then they deserve to be run over. ;)

Exactly. If you disable this safety feature and injure someone, the Court is not going to be impressed by snark.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

I've not heard any reverse nor forward noisemakers on Teslas. Numerous other EVs and PHEVs don't either (e.g. gen 1 Volt and Spark EV).

But, some others do (e.g. VPNS on Toyota hybrids, PHEVs and EVs starting with model year 2012 but the sound isn't different for forward and reverse). Fiat 500e has a noisemaker. There are others.
