Seattle Area Consult 3 owners?

Sat Jun 17, 2017 11:58 am

Hi everybody.
In May of 2015, I bought a salvage 2015 Model S Leaf with 2500 miles on it. It ran and drove fine except for the clown car affect from the bent right front wheel. Over the course of the last two years I have stripped the entire wire harness, drive train, battery, and everything I think will be useful and currently have it all scattered across my garage floor. The goal of all that it is to convert my '85 Toyota Supra to a Leaf powered electric car. Why? Because I think I can. And I think the Supra looks cooler than the Leaf, sorry but it's true. And a BMW Z3 with a blown motor was way outside my budget.

The point of this post is that my list of DTCs include some that require running the self-diagnostic test on the Power Distribution Module. Leaf Spy Pro is no help in this situation, except to point out the problem. The battery won't charge and the motor won't go into drive or reverse due to a Normal Charge Port Lock issue and a High Voltage Interlock issue. I have the 2015 service manual and have followed the troubleshooting steps until I get to the self-test steps.

My question is, is there anyone in the Seattle area who has Consult 3 and all the required hardware who would be willing to make a trip to my garage and see if we can get this figured out? I live in Mountlake Terrace, about a mile and a half off the freeway.

Thanks in advance.
