I see. A thermal buffer, of sorts. Makes sense if you're trying to keep hot wires out of the passenger area.kmp647 wrote:Heater is safer as water coolant instead of coil , also provides more consistent temp and holds some heat when the heating elemnt is de activatedGroundLoop wrote:Excellent info!

I am curious about the design of the cabin heater, and why it benefits from having an indirect (coolant) stage. Why not just resistive heat in the cabin airflow directly? Seems like it would take longer to heat fluid than just glow into a fan.
The A/C compressor.. runs directly of HV battery pack power?
This is good news
Do you know if the heater is also HV powered?
Also, do you know if a service tool (Nissan Consult-II?) is able to adjust the convenience options, like unlocking all the doors together?
