Look what I found in the 2013 Service Manual! :P

Numbers 9-11 are temperature sensors 1, 4, and 2 respectively. Yes, the manual specifically states "Battery temperature sensor 4" :roll:

Guess the LH side doesn't matter temperature wise?! :shock:

Edit: typo! :oops:

Why would the left and right differ significantly?

One side of the car was in the shade and the other was baking in the sun all day long.

I thought the battery was fairly well shaded either way.
I have never entered a vehicle and as driver say wow it is hot and the passenger says my side is so cool in the shade.

It's new news to me. Thanks Jeremy. That explains why only 3 readouts from the CAR CAN on Jim's LEAF App.

It's happened to me many times. There's shade only on one side of the car. I guess it's only a NYC/NJ. I never parked my car in CA. I guess the heat is the same in the shade and direct sunlight there?

Shade is not going to change the pack temp on one side.

The batteries and battery enclosure are pretty much always in the shade.
