My car's 'Automatic Recirculate' feature just stopped working. The light flashes twice with the button press/hold, but then it goes right back to Recirculate.
You are not in any defrost modes, correct?
Auto Recirculate works in Floor + Defrost on the 2018+ cars. This glitch is a recent development. There are three codes:

U1000 0008 BCM CAN Comm Circuit

U1027 2308 CHARGER

U1000 0108 METER CAN Comm Circuit
Scarlet Ember 2018 Leaf SL W/ Pro Pilot

LeftieBiker,

With at least 2 CAN comm errors, I suggest you check your 12V battery and clear the codes. That will probably fix your HVAC recirculate issue. You may need to disconnect and reconnect the 12V battery (will cause the HVAC system to initialize the dampers to relearn their positions).

I had just ( a few days ago) topped off the 12 volt battery with the maintainer. It should have been near full. I didn't check the voltage first this time, but there were no other symptoms of a very low 12 volt battery. I agree that this should be tried, but I'm irritated that it happened...

I just thought of something: I had a Senior Moment when I connected the maintainer, and used the negative terminal on the battery to connect, rather than use the grounding bolt we commonly use on the stack. I know I've done this before, with no issues. Anyway, I reconnected the maintainer this morning, and I'll see if that alone fixes it. If not, maybe I'll try the code reset. I'll first try resetting with LSP.

Again, the Gen II Leaf allows both recirculate and partial recirculate at least in Floor + defrost mode. It doesn't allow Recirc in Defrost Only mode, except maybe when the blower is off - I don't remember. It's very handy to have it in F+D. I tried clearing codes, but they came back. Rather than disconnect the 12 volt battery I will probably take the car to the better, farther dealer for the annual inspection, and mention it.

You may have had a point, albeit not the one you thought you had. I didn't have the car in Floor + Defrost when the issue arose. It was in Vent High mode. I'm sure that Auto Recirc used to work in this mode, but it isn't now. It still works in Floor + Defrost.

Well there is an Easter egg maneuver that allows partially recirc (not sure how they determine that) but I am only going by the lights. I personally don't need recirc defrost. The humidity is way too high for that here.

I am quite familiar with how to engage Partial Recirculate - I included it in my Tips & Tricks guide. I'm not sure what your point was above.

Kind of a goofy "defect" that I found today. I can't turn off the radio.

1. Connect your phone through Bluetooth. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S10. I don't know that the type of phone matters.
2. Turn on the radio.
3. On the dash screen go to Phone -> Text Messages.
4. Select any text message and let it read the message.
5. Try to turn off the radio. Mine won't turn off using the knob.

I have to switch to a different screen to turn off the radio. I was at a drive-thru and I needed to read off the contents of the text message at the drive-thru window, so I didn't want to change to a different screen. I had to change the volume (that action on the knob still works) to zero.

Our radio is funky also, I attribute it to owner incompetence, but I have yet to figure out exactly why it comes on sometimes and won't turn off sometimes. Oh well...... a gremlin.

I will chime in--the navigation system/radio is the ONLY thing I don't like about my 2019 SL Plus after almost a year. The touch screen is too sensitive and the actions from touching it are not consistent. Sometimes it will scroll when touching and sometimes it will zoom or move to another screen. It is very distracting to change radio stations or switch between AM, FM, and XM while driving. There is no way to fully turn off the audio and the map is ridiculously out of date (older than the maps in the 2011 and 2015). Although it is capable of "over the air" map and software updates, I have never been able to get an update of any kind (always says it is up to date whenever I check for updates). At least the older cars would update charging station locations frequently--again no updates to charging stations in almost a year of ownership so it shows DCQC stations in my area which no longer exist.
