Eleafgrrl, Did you check 12V battery or reset the 12V battery?

EdmondLeaf: Thanks for the suggestion as the tow guy was clueless. I got the "I don't hear it runnin' " comment after he hooked up the jumper cables.. he jumped it and that got it fired up to at least get it out of the garage and onto the tow truck. I have a "visit dealer" message on dash. It is on its way to the dealership now. Thanks again, will keep ya posted on how it turns out.

Jill,

Isn't this the second time the car has had to go to the dealer for something or other? Sucks for you!!

Fingers crossed, touch wood, I'm at 12,500 trouble free miles (excepting the damn deer).

Hope they turn it round quickly.

If I had a buck for each time I went into Nissan Service because of the "visit dealer" yellow message, I could have a spare traction pack by now. :D The dealer tells me (each time) ummm ... nope ... nothin' showin' on my wiggy ... better bring it back in when it stays on (because it goes off after a restart, usually). So I come back with the "visit dealer" msg blazing. They still can't figure it out. so they turn the car off ... turn it back on and tell me, "seems ok now".

Be sure they fill out a service ticket each time you take it there. After so many attempts to fix the same problem without success and you get to enact the lemon law on it. Check with your local state on their lemon law provisions.

Yes, you are correct, the brake actuator went out exactly one month to the day after I picked up the Leaf. THAT was fixed in one day, they replaced the actuator and I had it back within 24 hours.

In regards to the "visit dealer" message, this is only the second time I have seen that, the first was with the actuator episode. The fact that the Leaf died while it was being driven and was DOA at home with the charger seems to point to a legitimate issue. The "EV System" warning light was something I had never seen before.
