Thank you very much for sharing!
I was almost sure it would work but I wasn't sure about how many parts needed to be changed.

What's next a 40kWh? :mrgreen:

Excellent, well done! That looked seriously cold.

Is this a way to swap any battery without Nissan's Consult tool? VCM + LBC + key programming? I hope so.

What year of Leaf did you upgrade jsa0161, I have a 2012 I would like to do this too but I am not sure what I would have to do with the extra connector from the 30 kwh battery for the heater.

It was cold, very cold! :D

I was offered help from a person who owned this tool: this tool:https://www.aliexpress.com/item/OBDSTAR-X-100-ProS-OBD2-Auto-Key-programmer-C-model-eeprom-security-code-reader-same-x200/32687310187.html
He had used it to register keys with the Leaf in the past and also thought it would be possible to register my key with VCM, using this tool.
Unfortunately he lived to far away so never got a chance to take him up on his offer. I think it would have worked.

I got a 2014 Leaf. There could be other issues with a 2012 model. Not sure if the 30 kwh VCM would have worked. Yes, no? I don't know.

I don't think the extra connector for the battery heater would have been a deal breaker though. Probably just a can bus error code, but I'm guessing the car would still have worked.

They changed the canbus-with-friends-connector on the first gen1 battery back to the second gen ( 2013 +) so you need a adapter for that.
