The Li-ion battery charges the 12-volt battery as necessary when the power switch is in the READY to drive position.
Relay operation noise and vibration at startup and shut-down of the EV (Electric Vehicle) system (power switch placed in the ON and OFF position).
Push the power switch to the OFF position.
Now.. I've been in the Leaf (briefly)... I KNOW it doesn't have positions. I am guessing I am supposed to think the word "state" or "mode" when they say "positions" Section 5 page 8 tries to describe this further but I don't really get it. It seems to be as follows:The power switch should always be in the LOCK position when working under the hood or inside the vehicle.
- Without brake pressed, pushing the power button once goes to ACC mode
- With brake pressed, pushing the power button once goes to Ready mode
- Without the brake pressed, pushing the power button twice goes to ON mode
- Lock happens if the doors open (or shut!) while in Off mode
Is it just me? Anyone have a better handle on this?
