Can't disable reverse beeping with LeafSpy

Tue Sep 10, 2019 7:32 am

I just purchased a 2013 Leaf and am trying to disable the beeping with LeafSpy 1.7.38 on iOS. I get all the data, so the connection to the OBDII is working fine. I don't see the option to disable the beep. Did it get removed, or is there something special I have to do? Please help. I feel so bad when it goes off early in the morning.

From settings in the app, you need to enable the service screen. Then tap the VSP settings button. This is what I need to do on the Android Pro version.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Thank you. I looked all over for a manual of some kind. I found all kinds of information for the standard screens and data, but nothing on these settings.

My understanding is that there is no way to disable the backup beeper. :-(

You can email the author for a PDF of the help that's built into the app. The instructions on how to do that are in the help.

The reverse beep is a vital safety feature that others pay to add on...

There is no need to turn it off.

You can turn it off with LeafSpyPro.

Some might tell you there is no need to turn it off, but that's just their opinion. For instance, my daughter, who sleeps in the bedroom directly above our garage, was very happy when I turned it off.

Hi Folks,

New to Leaf with 2019 SL-Plus. The only down side to this car is the annoying back up beep. It wakes people up in the morning and people point to me when backing up, quite embarrassing. Tesla's don't beep when they back up and its not a commercial vehicle with limited visibility. The car already has other safety features when backing up where the backup beeping is redundant and unnecessary. This functionality should be enabled or disabled from a general setting in the car. Nobody should have to buy a 3rd party product or modify the car to make this happen. Nissan, I hope that you are listening! Otherwise an awesome car!

On the previous generation (haven't found instructions for the current gen), behind the glovebox (it removes with a few screws and snaps) is the VSP sound module. Unplugging the connector to it disables the reverse beep, forward sound, charging beeps, etc. I unplugged it and couldn't be happier!

So let people notice your car. The noise is not really that loud, so no one can say that it wakes people up.

That is a very needed safety item... Stop wanting to customized everything...
