First post so Forgive me if I've placed this in the wrong section,
I am looking at the possiblity of buying a leaf thats had a prang and transplanting the motor and battery across into another vehicle (for ICE conversion).
from what i have read the Leaf heavily uses 3 can bus systems which if they get upset from missing parts will shut down sections of the vehicle,
all I am after is full power from the motor the battery and the abilty to charge the battery (not to bothered about fast charge)
so my question is if you strip a leaf for its motor charger and battery how much of the other bits do you need to drag along to ensure the car still thinks its in one piece?
I would assume if you have the motor, VMC, BMC,battery, throttle and brake switches and the apropriote Can bus wiring they would all talk and should hopefully work? or do the ABS system, airbags and steering all need to be plugged in to for the system to work properly?
