I have a 2017 SV that I bought in August and the TCU has never worked for me.
On the menu screen there's a little icon of a gray car near the top with a diagonal red line through it. I worked over the phone with Customer Service and once they learned of the lined out car they said it had to be serviced by the dealer.

The nearest LEAF-capable dealer wants $176 for initial diagnosis, so it's not happening.
Isn't a 2017 still under warranty?
I doubt it--it has ~60k miles on it.

At 60 K miles, the car is out of warranty.

you bought it used, and this problem is just like another "as is" issue on a used car. Nissan is not responsible.

I would say... F____ it, and not even bother trying to fix something that has always given owners trouble.

The important thing is that the rest of the car is good.
