I went to start my charged to 80% Leaf today, and it came up in an odd mode where the warning lights were on (brake, park, EV…) but no green car. Also there were no bars, and the miles left had dashes. Unlike the intermittent "sort of on" mode where you can hit on again, or turn it off and on, I could turn it off, but it always returned to this non driving mode. I would attach a photo of the panel, but I have to upload it to some stupid website first.
What did work was plugging it back into the charger for a minute, unplugging, and then it started up like normal.
I understand some people have tried detaching the 12V power lead to get the system to reset in odd cases, but I didn't try it this time. If you are on the road and away from a charger, that might be your only option to try…
Anyone else had this problem?
(It's in the software, I'm sure. No one can write correct code.)
