I got a message from Tor and expects that I'll get the harness within a week. I'll report back with my feedback.

Just put my order in as well. Getting a new (lizard) battery soon and will be keeping my Leaf for a long, long time!

Got mine today. Tested all the pins and they all check out. Installed it and it works perfectly! Thanks so much for putting this together. I really like mods that use the existing wire harnesses and for that price it's not worth doing it yourself!

I received the kit on Nov 24th like everyone else via Priority Air Mail. I Installed it today and it works perfectly.

Installing only took fifteen minutes. Removing the center console is easy. Disconnecting the connector plug from the back of Climate Control module took a little longer because mine is a little tight. I had to disconnect the top Hazard switch connector to get better access to the back of Climate Control module.

I routed the kit switch through a small opening in the bottom and it came out near the foot area of driver's side. The cable is long enough to wind it around the center console below the 12V DC cigarette lighter outlet.

Its was 52 degrees outside. Turned on the fan with kit switch on Mode# 1. Fan did not turn on heat and Energy Usage monitor showed no Climate Control consumption. Even in Fresh Air mode with AC on, there was no energy consumption. This is amazing! Since 2013 (I have a 2012 SL), I've been wanting this option every time my windshield fogged up.

I wish I would have ordered Tor's LED light bulbs as well. I am sure they are better than the ultra cheap Chinese ones I ordered from eBay that started flickering after a year.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Tor for this inexpensive, non-invasive, kit. Planning, designing, ordering, website, shipping, responding to everyone's questions and PMs, used your time and resources.

You did this as a Non-Profit service for fellow LEAF owners. Something that Nissan should have done. My thanks to everyone else who created earlier DIY mods as well. Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello everyone! Do my apologies if I'm writing to wrong topic.


Is there any circuit to run heater with switched off car (like it does timer or Carwings).

I'm living in Ukraine, and I cant use carwings, and I can't use heater remotely. And winter is coming. I suggest to make some bluetooth (or sms etc) device which can run heater remotely. The device isn't a problem, but the problem is how to turn on the heater?

Thanks to the authors in this thread! Here's my take on a Method 2 installation on a 2011 Leaf:

If there's sufficient interest, I could package this particular switch and wires as a kit for about $10-$15, for shipping from USA. No tools required, no soldering, no crimping, no permanent modification to the car (the switch cover that gets taken out can be stored under the center console, ready for re-install when the vehicle is returned from lease).

Thanks for bumping this thread, I've been meaning to pick one of these harnesses up but I had lost track of it. I just placed my order.

With the late spring/early summer weather upon us, it will be 90F one day and 65F the next. I set the A/C to about 75F during the hot days, but the next day, this kicks on the heat! It's really annoying! This simple but brilliant solution is just what I need!

I just placed an order for the wiring harness mod. I'll keep everybody posted how it works.

It works great! I had Tor's hardness on my Leaf before I turned it in (I removed it then and gave it to someone else)...

Yep, it's residing in my '12 SL, very easy install. IMO this mod is a must for anyone with a pre '13 Leaf :)
