So no one knows how to hook up the factory switch so that the LED lights properly?

You folks should be glad you aren't driving a Prius with a stubborn primary driver who won't get the settings changed. Imagine the VSP *inside the car*, beeping away *at you* while you are reversing, instead of warning those outside the car...

Yeah, I never understood the interior reverse beep in the Prius. First thing I did when I got my '06 Prius was to disable it. At least they made that accessible.

I HATED that about the Prius. I never got it turned off because I never went back to dealer for anything, but I should have.

The reverse beep on the Leaf is simply embarrassing. I have no issue with the forward sound. Disabling it looks like a massive unnecessary hassle, though, if I go by first post.

I like the blind person warning but hate the reverse beep. I just used a normally closed relay connected to the backup light to open the speaker.

I had a guest here last weekend and I was surprised how bad the Leaf back up beep is. I have not heard it for over a year.

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
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.

VSP module is shown in red. Connector is yellow.

Thanks Phil. This was very easy to do.

I pulled off the trim piece under the glovebox. Next, I took off 4 screws along the bottom of the glovebox, 2 screws inside the glovebox and the 4 screws along the top of the golvebox. The whole box came out and I found the VSP module with its connector above the cavity. Pulled it out and no more beeping when the car is put in reverse.

Can you give me some more details on this one? I only want to disable the reverse beep, and keep all other sounds, sounds like you figured out how to do it.

In the relay pod behind the battery against the firewall the left most relay is for the backup light. I tapped the wire going to the lights to run a bosch style relay.

The speaker is forward of the drivers wheel well.. I spliced in some speaker wire in series with one wire. It is connected to the common and normally closed contacts of the relay.

The speaker operates normally and you hear beeps like the charging beep. When you backup 12V from the relay activates the bosch relay. The coil of the relay is connected to ground and the backup light wire.

It has been over a year and I do not remember what wire I tapped off of, sorry.

Ah, I understand your approach now, makes sense, I should be able to figure it out from here, thanks!

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.
