Question about air conditioning

Sun Jul 26, 2020 7:13 pm

My A/C shoots out warm air, but I don't see any warning lights or anything like that.

Anyone have any idea what needs to be fixed?

Does it do it all the time, or just sometimes? Year/model Leaf?

We need the trim level because the S uses a completely different system for A/C than the SV and SL.

For reference, this is the issue on '13 to '15 S trims: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2016/ ... 3-2280.pdf. Off the top of my head, I don't know if this has been revised significantly.

A well-known dealer tech in the Pacific NW during the height of this said they had some brand new Leaf S come off the truck w/this problem.

brainy19: What's your location? (You can update your signature to show this) What are the ambient temps? How many miles on the LeafS? Have you owned it since new? Was the car ever in an accident?

If the AC "recall" was done, there might be a printout of the service in the owner's manual. Nissan computer network should also show if the recall was done.

Nissan also has a recall lookup website, not sure if the AC recall would be included in that database though:

You just need to type in your VIN

Ah, some fair points. I will look up the needed details when I have time. Thank you all for your help so far!

BTW, I live in Southern California. Ambient temperature has been below 80degF lately.

S trim has no nav system, no TCU, has knobs for the HVAC and radio and has matte finish plastics. Car in https://insideevs.com/news/317231/real- ... e-w-video/ is an S trim. '15 S got cruise control that '13 and '14 S didn't have.

SV and SL have piano black shiny plastics, TCU (with cellular radio), nav system and no knobs for either. '15 S has only black cloth interior. '15 SV and SL would have a choice of light grey or black cloth interior. '15 SL would have black leather interior.

The campaign and TSB (NTB16-050 at https://testing-public.carmd.com/Tsb/Do ... 6669/1vb31) only apply to '13 to '15 S trims.
