Sound like you may have a chance at getting to invoke the battery warranty. The heat waves we've been getting should help, my battery has been at 85-98F the last couple days.ttweed wrote:even though I am down to 76% capacity @ 50.24 Ahr. now.
Could be worse: I have to plan an overnight stay at a motel in Silverton to make the 184 mile round trip to the dealer in Durango. It is going to make that basically useless battery check quite expensive! (I had to delay the trip this year because a rock slide closed Red Mountain Pass for a number of weeks — you've seen it, the road is not for the faint-of-heart.)abasile wrote:I've been putting this off because the quick chargers have been down at both of the dealers I've used in the past, and I do need to charge in order to comfortably return home. It was easier when I was working for an employer very close to a Nissan dealership and could pick up the car at the end of the workday...
Tom, which dealer are you using now? We just lost our first bar at 27,400m, 40 months. Got new Ecopias about 2 months ago. Need to get third battery check. And I guess the (second?) software update that cuts the regen, though I'm not too keen on that.ttweed wrote:Had the 36 month battery checkup on our Leaf yesterday. Dealer charged $57.50 for it. I refused all other maintenance service and took the car to Discount Tire afterwards and had the wheels rotated for free. The battery report was a joke, as usual, showing excellent in all categories, even though I am down to 76% capacity @ 50.24 Ahr. now.

Pacific Nissan (closest to my house). They couldn't find the 36-month battery check procedure in their service database, only the 12- and 24-month, which were free. I may have been the first one there to have it.wsbca wrote:Tom, which dealer are you using now?
I'm using the Leaf Spy app on a Nexus 7 running Kit Kat, and a Chinese GT-i9500 clone smartphone running Android 4.2.9. Both work OK with it, but on different bluetooth ports, so I end up resetting the ELM mini-adapter a lot.ps. What device do you use to get your % capacity/Ahr reading?

Nissan can't legally void the warranty for not having it done unless they can prove that not having it done caused damage some how (which is impossible, since it's just a report- it does absolutely nothing to the battery). ...mwalsh wrote:
Worth it to keep that warranty up though.
