Re: I just loss my 4th bar, could there be a 5th loss bar no

Fri Jul 26, 2013 8:13 pm

Peoria Nissan put the new battery pack in Wed...... 2 hours to install the battery pack and 8 hours to charge it .... I need to get use to the extended charge time again .. From 3.5 hours back to 5 hours for a full charge ............

When I ask about the exact cost of the battery pack he said it was more of a round-house figure ... I guess Nissan does not even list them for sale yet ...

If your going in for the battery replacement, one day for the inspection and the a 2 day wait for the battery pack delivery and then a one day instillation, 2 hours to install and a 8 hour charge of the battery ...The Nissan repair facility is now open until 9pm ..

Thanks for the update on this. It's good to know that Nissan has started the 4BL replacements! What's the pre-repair inspection? Did they tell you what they did?

They run a test on the battery pack, that's all I was told ... I would imagine they are just checking to make sure that the battery has loss 4 bars and its not a malfunctioning dash readout ..

Given that you are in AZ, so when do you think you will be visiting them again next?. In about 18 months and another 20K miles, or sooner ?
2011 Leaf, 30K miles, returned after 24 month lease.
Currently leasing 2014 Leaf SV.

Given it takes a full day, we can reasonably postulate that it involves at least one discharge-charge cycle to see how much energy storage capacity it really has.
