Never just go by bars if buying from anyone who you don't know if you can trust. It has been demonstrated that the bars can be reset and it takes months for them to return to their true indication. LeafSpy, LeafDD, SOCmeter, etc is a must-have IMO for anyone buying a used Leaf.

What would happen if a pack was swapped without a reset flash?

Would everything work?

Will the computer / GOM adjust in a week or two?

Just helped a friend swap batteries, both batteries11/12-pre-upgrade. First we tried just plain swap and got an errorcode from LeafSpy about invalid battery; P3102 00C0 EV/HEV Invalid Battery EVC-201. But it was actually possible to put it in drive and get the wheels spining up to 47km/h, just tested with wheels off the ground, so probably possible to do the swap at home and drive to the workshop to get vcm-lbm matching done.
Next step was to try with the new battery and the old lbm(bms) and it seems to work fine, still reads the old SOH but guess it'll get better after some recalibration while driving the car a few batterycycles.

For what it is worth , I have an eBay ELM 327 mini Bluetooth OBDII dongle I bought for our Chevy Sonic ICE car .

I installed the free version of Leaf Spy on my android phone . Tried this combination on the Leas . Leaf Spy said my dongle would not work on the Leaf / Leaf Spy . ( Did work on the Sonic with Torque . )

I ordered what I think is the correct dongle & awaiting delivery .

God bless
