Do you have anything with your keys in your pocket that could be pressing the buttons when you sit down etc.?
The batteries should last at least a year or two, keyfobs don't use much power.
As long as you're not buying pound shop specials then you should be OK.
Even ASDA brand ones are just as good as the duracell or energiser ones.
Mine gave out after two years (both the main keyfob and the spare). Bought a pack of two (Renault badged) from the dealer for £4.44 inc VAT and so far so good after a further year (the spare keyfob has its battery still in the packet to be installed if and when needed).
Ignore at your peril. Did that for a few months but it finally refused to allow access to the car. Unfortunately the wife was driving and didn't realise Zoe has a key hidden within the card for emergency access
There are some YouTube clips on how to open up the key fob. You take the key out and use a watchmakers screwdriver to prise a corner of the seam line open and then work round until the halves separate. The stock issue battery in mine was a Sony 2025 but a 2032 seems to work just as well as it physically fits in a LEAF keyfob. A 2032 is rated at 240 mAh and a 2025 is rated 163 mAh, so a 2032 should last longer in use. Both have a shelf life of eight years.
@Mike Schooling I suppose this means one can upgrade the battery capacity of a LEAF for less than £5.
Hi all - I'm new to this forum and a brand new owner of a 2014 Nissan Leaf 24, my first EV. I'm very excited.
So I'm trying to get to grips with the car's range. Having read enough on this forum I now understand a few things:
ignore the GOM (had to search around to find out what that meant)...
I bought my LEAF Acenta last September and from day one it has been silent - no pedestrian warning or reversing alerts. I tried enabling / disabling with LeafSpyPro with no results. Whilst I don't particularly want these warnings, it would be interesting to determine why they're...
Hi all - real newbie question: as long as no-one is waiting to use a public rapid charger, can I simply leave it on charge to get to 100% or close to? I've read that the charge time increasingly slows after 80%, but does it damage the battery in anyway? Thanks.
Hey fellow Leafers.
Odd problem today. Did afew miles this morning and came home with about 35% left (67 miles using 60%, pleased with myself). Plugged the car into my pod point charger, pressed the time button to override my schedule and wandered off.
Popped to the supermarket this evening...
I thought I had imagined it but today was proof, sometimes my car does not want to regen!
Today driving to Sunday dinner, had to stop at mini roundabout and thought I hadn’t seen and regen, then later on same happened, tested it by foot off brake then gently on, and no regen at all...
