Hello, first time poster here,
I've looked through this thread and haven't seen anybody mention an issue similar to what I've encountered with my new 2018 Leaf
Leaf SV 2018 built 06/18
I have had this car 5 months, only 5000 km so far. The problem is power failure on start up. This is a sub-second loss of power as I start up, with a momentary recovery, followed by another loss of power, all repeated sometimes 5 or 6 times. It is a very intermittent problem
that started about 2 months after I got the car and occurs only once per 1 or 2 weeks, although once it starts it my happen several times that trip. No warning lights before, during or after. No OBD / Leafspy DTCs abnormality are spotted using LeafSpy.
This has happened mostly (but not invariably ) been encountered when I am starting a left turn, at an advanced green.
This ends up with a ’stuttering’ that ends up with a very slow progression through the intersection and a resulting chorus of impatient beeping of drivers behind me.
I thought maybe the radar is confused by the opposing traffic that I appear to be driving into. But it happens occasionally also at intersections when I'm starting straight and with no opposing traffic.
I drive predominantly with ePedal D-mode but this also has occurred with ePedal off and in B mode.
Once the problem shows during any trip, it can appear when I’m running at normal speed and start accelerating and a single truly momentary power loss blip may happen.
The dealer has detected nothing on their scan and in test drive, and so have no solution for me. Their suggestion- ‘avoid ePedal for a while and see if it recurs’. Well... . It continues to this day. Ideas as to what to do?
