  4. LeafSpy Errors and Intermittent Non-Starting

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Morning all. My 2011 L24 is acting a bit silly for the last day or two. Every so often she gives me an I-key error, and I can’t turn on the ignition. When the error appears, it's just after I turn off the car. Strangely though, if I leave her alone for an hour or so, the ignition turns on (the...

    I have a Passat GTE Advance. It was hit by another car in May... It's been repaired (driver's side, wing, doors, new steering rack, etc..) and returned to the main dealer in June for what I was told were routine 'resets'. Turns out that it MAY have been the incorrect steering rack...

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Today I got this weird error when trying to charge at a local rapid (CHAdeMO) which used to work for me very well in the past.

    General Charging Discussion
    I used a Chargepoint Genie rapid yesterday, that was supposed to charge £1.80 + £0.30/kWh, and I was undercharged. It only charged me a connection fee of £0.60 (and the expected £0.30/kWh) I double checked the signage and the map, after the receipt came through, I thought it was a pleasant...
