Picked up a 7/2013 (manufacturing date) Leaf with 16 K miles to go with my other 2013 Leaf last Friday.
It's a two bar loser and Leaf Spy shows 75% SOH. Leaf Spy is also showing cell #44 is discharging faster than the rest of the pack; at VLBW #44 is about 100 mv below the next lowest cell, overall voltage spread ~200 mv. (I will edit this post to add an screen shot.) At 100% charge through about 50% charge, #44 is tracking pretty well with the rest of the pack.
Does anyone have a reference for where cell #44 is in this pack? I will probably try replacing #44 if it doesn't give a P33E6 fault some time over the next 18 months. Dropping the pack doesn't look difficult, prying the lid off does, and depending on where #44 is it could be easy or really difficult to change.
Alternatively, has anyone paid the Nissan dealership to replace cell (rather than have it done under the 8 year hardware warranty)?
So currently I am limited to about 12 kwh of capacity. It is cold here and the pack has only been cycled 4 times so far since I got it and I believe it was parked for a while before that. See if it improves. Pack is showing three temp bars, but I can still get 4 regen bubbles at times. My commute is just 6 miles each way. The 7/2013 is in very clean condition (looks new actually) and was kept in Tampa until recently. I think it must have been in a garage, no sun damage, no salt corrosion. Some white sand in wheel well though! For me, range is just not an issue, but maintainability is, so this completely un-corroded car is a happy find for me.
