New recall? P5327 for electronic brake boost in cold temps.

Sat Oct 17, 2015 2:46 pm

I went into the Nissan dealer today to get my 2nd annual battery check on a 2013 Nissan leaf SL and they said there is some service bulletin they need to perform on the electronic brakes. I can not find any details on this. Does anyone know what this is?

May be a feeble attempt by Nissan to make the battery last longer. We've had some updates that reduced driving range and cut braking regen.
Also are battery is down to 10 bars and still shows 70 mile range. This can't be true since with a 100% battery that range would only happen when things were near perfect. The Leaf looses the bars that are left what looks like a lot faster than before. Sorry just venting.

The only TSB I could find is for the grabby brakes.

A Leaf dealer tech posted this on the Seattle Leaf FB group on 10/16/15:

"INTRODUCTION
Nissan is conducting a Voluntary Service Campaign on certain 2013-2015 LEAF vehicles to reprogram the Electrically-driven Intelligent Brake Control Unit. This service will be performed at no cost to the customer for parts or labor.

I quickly checked the '13 model year under http://x.nissanhelp.com/forums/Knowledgebase/links/691/ and http://x.nissanhelp.com/forums/Knowledgebase/links/651/, and didn't see anything along these lines yet.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I would certainly like to know more about this, if anyone has any further info, please jump in! I wonder if this is different than the TSB fix, or just an escalation of the TSB fix into a voluntary recall?

Took my car to service and the guy said they just got a new recall a week ago? He couldn't even tell me what it's about...

Is your car a 2013? Per NHTSA's vehicle recalls page, the 2013 Leaf lists two "recalls", both for the passenger airbag. What your service tech is referring to is likely a Technical Service Bulletin, or TSB, of which 10 have been reported to NHTSA on the 2013 model. One of them is clearly not for the Leaf:
CERTAIN VEHICLES WOULD DISPLAY, IN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER, A WARNING LIGHT ILLUMINATION OF A LOOSE FUEL CAP WARNING. MODEL YEARS 2012-2014. NO MODELS LISTED.
Do you know which TSB was applied? It should state on your paperwork what the service bulletin number or NHTSA ID number is.
Blue Ocean 2012 Leaf SV, lost that 1st bar at 34 months/26,435 miles. Lease returned 2 months later. Final LeafStat figures: 225 Gids, 17.44 kWH, SOC 91.89%, SOH 82.36%, 69.49% HX, 54.57 Ahr, battery temp 61.8 F.

This is strange. I'm not finding any technical details about the voluntary campaign.
I just had a phone call from Nissan Owner Portal / CARWINGs person that was helping to resolve my unit id/login/pin issue, and at the end of the call she mentioned the regen brake campaign.

If anybody has been to their dealer and received more details, please share.

thx,
