My dealer charged me $85 for 1/2 hour of tech time and suggested I call Nissan corporate to make my case. I mentioned it in another post.

Have had no time to call yet.

Honestly, it sucks that they shipped something that cost $199 that was flaky and didn’t come out with a fix until more than a year after I had it done. So, of course, I’m past 1 year/12K miles.

If I were in your shoes, I'd go to the dealer that tells you it's free.

Update done for free, now hurry up and wait to see if the app works without me doing a fuse pull.

I recently got around to contacting them. After some email snafus (they kept sending email to an address they have on file that I almost never check), I finally got their email, replied w/my proof of payment and ownership. Got an email today saying I should expect to receive an $85 check within 2 to 4 weeks. Yay!

I did my TCU upgrade on 2015 SV in the middle of June, 2018. I never had any issue with drained battery. Although, the fix for previously installed units was released recently. It appears the recently upgraded 3G TCU modules already had fix. I upgraded my 12V to Lithium battery in July though, so my voltage never drops below 13.35V.

Via associated documents at https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/Se ... ds=1141769, I was able to find a PDF of NTB18-045 at https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2018/ ... 2-9999.pdf.

Unfortunately, there has been at least 1 revision (NTB18-045b). Don't know what they changed in it.
