Re: Leaf won't Charge or Start - 12V is fine

Hi Phatcat73,

Is the dealership Arlington Nissan?

I'm out in Deer Park. When I need work done I'm trying to decide which local dealership to go to. So let me know what you think of their service. So far, at least it sounds like they are being honest with you (... never dropped a battery.).

I would not recommend going to them, but you have little choice. I suspect they are overloaded and as a result their service suffers. Not sure how well Schaumburg fairs. I did have exceptional service at Evanston Nissan and will go there going forward.

With regard to my problem, the car is still at the dealer (since July 16), we have a Nissan loaner and an open case with Nissan corporate who will reimburse us the lease payment due to the length of time. They gave us a bare bones Nissan Sentra in the interim which is quite painful coming from a Leaf.

Dealer mentioned there is a short in one of the cells. They will be replacing the single module at fault. Will try to chase them down for an update tomorrow.

Good Luck!

@pocketandy - what was the cause of those two codes? I have this problem now on my 2011.

I got this issue five weeks ago, and the car has been at the dealership ever since. Now they are replacing the entire battery pack, which works great for me.

I own a 2018 SV with close to 70k miles on it.

Has this issue been solved? I am currently facing an almost identical one with my 2011 leaf
