    J1772 charging not working

    I have the same problem with my leaf.. the solution was very simple (and free).. I just lift up the handle of the charging cable.. I hear the click and it starts charging.. I have now mastered it, but the first few times it took a light touch. Also if it won't connect, even a dried leaf in...

    Buying a Leaf with 200 000 km on it

    Soon we expect refurbished batteries.. that is when they take several bad batteries and make N-1 good batteries. These might cost $1,000 or more.. but expect them to last tens of thousands of miles. The market price in US is about $2,000 for a 2015 with that many miles.

    Battery percentage drops erratically on acceleration

    Your capacity is a computed estimate... so when you floor it on fast mode (not eco) up hill. The computer assume you will be doing that the whole time and calculate it.. want to have fun.. ALSO have the heater and front and rear defrosters on.. might have 20 mile range

    12V battery died, SOH and SOC messed up after replacing 12V

    My Leaf was acting bonkers after I replaced the 12v battery.. I started it 3 times and it has been normal ever since. Do NOT replace it with a Nissan Dealer battery. Go to the auto parts store or AAA and get a high quality high cold cranking amps battery about the same size and same polarity (+...

    I've got cells dying What should I do the dealership and the leaf spy shows no codes but

    My leaf would go into turtle mode going up a 4 mile mountain at any speed. Hills chew up the battery power. As does running the space heater and/or defroster. My leaf only gets 20 miles at zero degrees, heat and defroster running. last week, first time, it went into turtle mode at -6 degrees...

    Intermittent Service EV system, drives but can't charge (leaf 2021)

    You didnt say if the 120v charger works? My phillips charger (6.6kw/220v) worked well for 5 years. Then the car would beep and not charge..just flash lights. Previously I learned sometimes I have to clean out the connector in the car. A tree leaf can cause it to fail.. dirt and snow can cause it...

    Water shortages ahead? Sierra Nevada snow pack on track to shrink 79 percent, new study finds Lawrence Berkeley National

    The problem is as much political as anything else. If you just put a group of engineers without an agenda in a room to figure out solutions, They can come up with a lot of 1 and 2% and 10% solutions that solve the problem. For instance, Los Angeles. Use the million gallons a week dumped in LA...

    Things were good except that the battery is very sensitive to driving faster than 60mph, its sensitive to running the heater, very sensitive to running the defroster.. So maximum range in summer is about 60 miles, maximum range in cold winter is between 20 and 40 miles per charge. Public...

    Sold our 2020 LEAF SV.

    My mistake was not leasing my 2015... I was looking at a BMW and the total cost of ownership is $10k cheaper for the BMW after all is said and done. And I would not have had the severe range and climate control restrictions. Almost all chargers in my area charge $ 34 cents a minute for 3.3kw...
