SD ACCESS NG blue NAV screen.

Tue Jul 31, 2012 8:05 am

I got a "SD ACCESS NG" blue NAV screen last night.

When I restarted my LEAF, I could not "accept" CW. after a few tries, it got the blue screen, which is all I get now, on restart.

Anyone seen this before?

Nissan advised me to try removing and reinserting the map card. No Change.

My only local dealer only has one "LEAF Guy", and he is booked till the 2nd, so they may not be able to take a look till then.

Just wondering if anyone knows how likely this is to be a quick fix, as it is "Murphy's law" situation, in terms of timing.

Did you try unhooking the battery for a few minutes? That seems to be a default way to fix a lot of things.

Yes, but you'll miss it. Without the radio, LEAFs are too quiet...

Especially if you are 55 miles into a maximum range test, 44 miles (and a over a mountain pass) away from home, with only three bars of "guess-o capacity", and with no cell phone reception.

It's more difficult IMO, to drive efficiently w/o the energy use screen. Cut the trip short to just over 100 miles, well before the VLBW.

UPDATE:

My LEAF has been at Crown Nissan,since Thursday AM. I have been driving a loaner Sentra, and will try to post details on how odd it feels to be using an ICEV for a daily driver, for the first time since I got my LEAF.

I, and (I believe) the local Service dept. expected a quick fix. But I now have the impression that Nissan is trying to find the cause of this problem, which was both unexpected, and expensive. I got this Email Friday:

Hi Ed, this is XXXXX at Nissan. We need to know if you have changed or removed S.D. card at any time for any reason. Need to find out and recontact Nissan and advise...
I replied:
...The day after the Screen went blue, the Nissan phone line advisor directed me through a procedure, which included removing and immediately reinstalling one of the cards behind the NAV screen...
Saturday PM I dropped by the dealership in Redding. The Service dept. is closed till Monday, and the part(s?) are not expected to be in before Tuesday.

The LEAF sales manager humored me, letting me check out my LEAF parked in the back lot. It was siting in the 100+ F Redding sun, with 12 charge bars.

He further accommodated me, allowing me to take it out on some errands, and I returned it with 10 bars.

So, after trying to limit my LEAFs high SOC at high temperature, ever since I got it, my LEAF’s battery's “toughest“ week, may be the week it’s back in Nissan's hands...

BTW, it seems that, in Redding, which is probably one of the CA LEAF Dealer locations with the highest Summer temps (though about 5-10 F lower than Phoenix) the policy is still to charge all new LEAFs to 100% on arrival. I don’t know if this is the result of some miscommunication, or if Nissan still isn’t overly worried about increased battery degradation due to temp, at high SOC.

Seems easy:
Swap an SD Nav card from another LEAF, and if it works, you are good.
If not, it is not the card, but the Nav unit or its connections.

But, maybe I just do not know the complexity of the system.

Maybe they will have to replace the charger and adjust the ...
Electron injectors? :lol:

The nav cards are keyed to the head-unit. Can't swap cards - if you ever need a new one, it has to be ordered from Clarion.

Got my LEAF back Thursday PM, with a very long invoice, 12 capacity bars, 9 bars of charge, and parked in the shade with only 6 bars of temp, where it stayed, though it read 106 F on the dash driving home. I'm pretty sure I didn't get a significant capacity reduction from the baking it got over the last week, But the heat wave (~100F-110F high temps everywhere within range of me) is expected to last the rest of this week.

I had to reset my preferences and re-sign in at CW. I Lost access to all my CW data, and am still waiting to hear back as to if/when access can be restored.

I'm mad at myself for not downloading all of it before I drove in for the repair, as I still had access, after the Nav screen failure, before they got their hands on my car.

not surprised you did not see any significant TBs. heat encourages heat. i think it easier to raise an already warm pack to near dangerous levels when charging. i also think that driving does not contribute nearly as much to storing heat in the battery.
