there are no codes showing up. I ALMOST DIED today while driving my nissan leaf. on turtle mode the car can't accelerate for shit. Some other SUV almost rear ended me today. WTF nissan. This is turning out to be a case like the ford pintoDala wrote:Dang there's a lot of these threads popping up!
There can be a multitude of reasons for turtle mode when fully charged, only way to know is to scan the codes.
It might even be so simple as to clear the codes, and the turtle will go away! A faulty 12V battery is always the prime suspect.
Worst case scenario is cells that have drifted >200mV from the rest, or some powertrain failure.
Scan the codes with a bluetooth OBD2 ELM327 v1.5 scanner, with LeafSpy app on your phone!
I find that virtually impossible to believe. The yellow ! car light remaining on while the car's in READY (green car with arrows) indicates 1 or more DTCs is stored. You have Leaf Spy Pro w/the proper OBD2 dongle for your phone OS?jblomstein wrote:there are no codes showing up.
Agreed.LeftieBiker wrote:Turtle Mode is NOT a driving mode. It's a "limp home and park it" mode. Do NOT drive the car like this - consider it broken down.
I don't buy it with the OP. If the yellow ! car light stays on with the READY light (green car w/arrows lit), I'd say it's at least 95% certain there's at least 1 code stored that relates to the drivability problems. And, Leaf Spy can let the OP inspect the module voltages and the max imbalance, if there's a problem w/the HV battery.DarthPuppy wrote:I can believe the no codes as I had a similar problem a while back. Car charged, started driving and then turtle mode. Took to dealer, and they said it was fine and they couldn't replicate the problem and had no codes recorded.
