hmm, I replaced my 12V battery less than a year ago, and I think my last reading (several weeks ago) was 13V, but I'll have to watch this closer, and will attempt to clear the codes.GerryAZ wrote:Some of the other DTCs present are indicative of low 12-volt battery (or codes were not cleared after disconnecting/reconnecting 12-volt battery). Check your 12-volt battery and clear all DTCs using Leaf Spy (step through clearing each module). Then see if air bag !ight continues to flash and DTCs return.
As long as you don't reset it, the code should stay in memory, shouldn't it ?keydiver wrote:I keep getting an airbag light intermittently, but I tried pulling a code with LeafSpy, and there was none. So, I keep resetting it by doing the trick on found here on MNL, to start the car 3 times, making sure to shut it off before the airbag light begins to blink. I've had to do that about 4 times in the past 6 months, and there's no pattern to it. I just hate to go to the dealer and pay them $65 just to read the code. I actually made an appointment the one time, because I couldn't get it to reset, and my wife won't ride in the Leaf without functioning airbags, but then, before the appointment, I was able to reset it again.
I had the OCS sensor fail in my 2011 Leaf. However, I think the code it generated was different. I don't remember--it was a year ago and it would reset, but then come back again. The only proper repair was to replace the entire seat ($3000), as they don't sell the sensor standalone.caalami wrote: ↑Fri Oct 25, 2019 10:06 amWhile at the dealer for the ground plate recall, I asked them to do an OCS zero point reset with fingers crossed. They charged me 1/2 hour of labor and were able to clear the code.
I'm guessing the 12V battery was the underlying cause of the intermittent problem originally (variable voltage with the change in seasonal temps + a very sensitive startup self-diagnostic), and I probably got the OCS computer into some kind of error state by trying to reset it multiple times. Or maybe there's still a loose connection in the harness somewhere.
But so far so good a week after the reset. My takeaway is to keep an eye on the 12V battery.
