I hereby confirm that Phil's circuit works properly in the 2013 Leaf. I just moved the one I built from my now-gone '12 to my new '13. As his diagram shows, the module moved slightly, it now has 3 screws instead of 2 holding the case together (gasp!), and the circuit board is updated in ways you aren't likely to notice. This also means that anyone could also still implement a typical momentary switch to ground out pin 5 to toggle VSP on and off. I never want it on, so I just put in the circuit and call it a day...Ingineer wrote:The circuit I described earlier in this post disables the Reverse beep and the VSP sound, but leaves all other beeps. You can still manually enable the VSP whenever you want it, but it defaults to off. The entire circuit is installed inside the VSP box.
Of course you'll need some familiarity with basic electronic components to construct it.
Easiest and cleanest way to do it. It is completely reversible with no sign on mod. Yes I did loose the start up sounds as well, not sure what other sounds I lost, but its much quitter now!Ingineer wrote:Just unplug the connector to the VSP. This would be good to do when you are in there to change the cabin filter. It's located over the glovebox housing, and you can access it by removing all the screws and pulling the glovebox housing out.raja33 wrote:Is there a simple way to cut the wire to the VSP speaker. I understand that it would disable charging and other beeps - I am of the opinion the fewer noises the better.
I looked under the hood and couldn't spot the speaker in the vicinity of the left front bumper.
My vehicle is leased, so I would like to reconnect the cut wire when I return the vehicle to Nissan
VSP module is shown in red. Connector is yellow.
Did you end up buying that switch? Would love to hear/see the details.RLC wrote:Sure - though I have to warn you the hardware isn't cheap. The best price I've found is at the link below:lion wrote: Do you mind sharing the source for this switch (assuming it isn't a 1-time auction)? I need (yes need) to do the same mod, for the same reasons. Don't know what Nissan was thinking. With my Prius Plug-in, I could disable the reverse beep via OBDII, but haven't seen anyone mention this on these forums, so guessing the switch is the only option here.

The part number is the last section of the URL -- a Google search will turn up other vendors.
I don't mind running my own wires behind the dash, but I'll need to know which pins (in addition to #5) I need to attach the switch to.
