FYI: LEAF service manual missing sections

Tue Apr 05, 2011 7:46 pm

On Sunday, I paid the $19.99 to access the LEAF service manual. There are two sections missing: "B: ENGINE" and "O: CRUISE CONTROL & DRIVER ASSISTANCE". I do not know if the chapters were unavailable only temporarily or not. Has anybody who paid to access the service manual not got access to those two chapters?

Edit, Apr 22, 2011 07:55:

OK, this is what happened: the table of content looks like this:

See how the "B ENGINE" section appears to not have any subsections? It does have subsections, but their title text is black instead of white, so all you see is a black bar, instead of white text on black!!! I found this out by accident when I selected the whole page, copied to clipboard, then paste into a text file. In fact, all those seemingly pointless empty black bars actually all have pointers to subsections. For example, section "B ENGINE" has the following subsection titles:
B ENGINE
* EM Engine Mechanical
* LU Engine Lubrication System
* CO Engine Cooling System
* EC Engine Control System
* FL Fuel System
* EX Exhaust System
* STR Starting System
The first subsection title under "D TRANSMISSION & DRIVELINE" is "CL Clutch", etc.

However, even though the section titles are "there" (albeit black text on black background), the sections themselves don't exist! If you mouse over them, the cursor does not change. So the section titles are there, but the sections are not.

I downloaded 49 pdf files, and they are named with a title and a two or three character acronym, such as Body Interior INT or Audio Visual and Navigation AV. I can understand the document missing about the engine, since there isn't one in the Leaf. The cruise control is covered in my EV Control System EVC document on page 49. It is called the Automatic Speed Control Device (ASCD)....

Well, OK, the "motor". There is a heading for it in the main file's table of content: "B: ENGINE". Nothing happens when I clicked on it, unlike with most other links.

Thanks for the pointer. All the same, I wonder about the empty heading in the TOC: "O: CRUISE CONTROL & DRIVER ASSISTANCE".

There are lots of spelling errors in the documents, so I'm hoping that those missing sections are just editting errors, and that they don't really exist.

There's no 'engine' section because there's no...engine. ;) The motor and controller info is in C - Electric Power Train.

The cruise control display info is in N - Driver Control and Multimedia - MWI.pdf

Good find though. Since the systems are electronic, the cruise control is probably just a couple of buttons and a block of software. I wonder where it's documented...

Nice - ASCD - thanks Andy!

It's probably better for us to pay our $20 and download the files from Nissan rather than get MNL shutdown for promoting copyright infringement. ;)


Here's the 'original' manual thread, BTW. The early books had 51 files for 84MB
http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2066&start=10

We had to use IE to download - Chrome and Firefox wouldn't follow the links. In IE we can stay in the FWD.pdf doc (the table of contents) and right click/save target as to get each of the files.

If you put all the PDFs in a single directory, one can use the FWD.pdf as a 'real' index and click into the separate docs.

I've gotta agree, it's a $20 book. Now if you wait until they publish it and then ask your library to buy one, then that would be okay to borrow... :D
