Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro

Usually the 12 volt battery gets drained, but there has been a case or two of a dongle messing with the car's internal communication system when left plugged in.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro

91040,
When talking the screen-1 100% screenshot, should the car be in ACC (press start one time with foot off break, or run (press start one tim with foot on break) ?
Should the charge cord be connected or disconnected?
Thank you

Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro

The car needs to be in “run” mode or “on” for LeafSpy to read the data, i.e. the display will be lit. It will not work in accessory mode- one button press, no brake.

The J-1772 plug won’t affect the reading but stops the car from entering run mode.

Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro

Hello,

The other day I discovered that I got "CAN Error" when I tried to connect to my Leaf via my ELM327. First I thought that maybe something is wrong with the ELM327, but I attached to another car (not an LEAF), and it worked, so the ELM327 is innocent.

Then I cleared the cache for LeafSpy Pro, uninstalled the app, reboot my phone and then reinstalled app. But with the same error message.
Then I installed the app on another Android phone, but I got the same error message again.

So I´m out of idea what to test next. Unfortunately I don't have access to any other Nissan Leaf, so I cannot troubleshoot from that angle.

Many Thanks.
