Re: 2018-2019 Leaf 2.0 "Service EV System. Unable to restart after power off"

Tue Jun 04, 2019 5:04 pm

We have a vehicle that is stuck at my work with this error! Have to take an Uber back home! Is there any way to Jump start / go past this error, at least enough to drive it home or to the dealer? If we have to tow it, does the dealer do it? It is parked on the 4th floor of a garage!

It is under warranty so towing to the dealer is covered. When calling Nissan Roadside Service, explain the parking situation to them so that they can send an appropriate tow truck.

We have been trying to get it towed. First tow truck bailed out in the morning. Now a second tow truck came and bailed out, after 3 hours of wait. I don't know why they keep sending large tow trucks when we have specifically told them the clearance height. Anyways, looks like me and my wife will have to push the car down to the ground level and then call them again

2018 Nissan Leaf SL

This "Error SERVICE EV - No Power" message came on about 3 times with my car and I'd walk away for 5 minutes come back and it would start up.

This morning when i went to start it, nothing, dead,

Had a tow truck driver come out. He jumped the battery and the only thing I could do thankfully was put it in neutral so he could push me out of my garage to tow it to the dealer.

Very frustrated and disappointed with this as this car only has 918 miles on and I love the way it drives and feels when it starts.

Waiting to hear from the dealer.

So this looks like the record for "one and done" posting. So can I implore the recent posters to update us?

I haven’t posted on this subject, but my 18’ with 8k just had this. Been at dealer all week with no update yet. When I hear back I’ll add my findings to the thread.

I had the same problem with my 2018 S. Delivery was late November, and I'll have to find the manufacture date. Just crossed 7500 miles.

Car wouldn't engage and had to be towed to dealership.

Car has been at the dealership for about 40 days now due to delays in shipping replacement modules. Dealer said there was a large backorder causing delay. Parts arrived on Thursday and waiting for status.

I'm guessing the backorder is related to multiple failures.

If it's been out of service that long, you may consider looking into your state's lemon laws to see if it qualifies. It's different for every state.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Yeah, I've started looking into it. It qualified at 30 days,

GEEZ! I'm glad I don't have a 2018. Except for replacing the crappy 12V battery, tires, and the traction battery in July, 2017--(split the cost with Nissan, $3,000 out the door), My 2011 SL has never had any maintenance issues in over 8 yrs/46,000 miles. It seems to perform better as it gets older. I still think the 2011 cars are more reliable (made/assembled in Japan).
