IIRC if you try to put it in drive too quickly after switch on it can sulk and do this.I have noticed this week twice now I have turned my leaf 30 on, tried to put into reverse or drive and it just beeps at me.
I have to turn the car off then on then it works.
Anyone else had this odd behaviour?
It sounds like you're too quick.Maybe! In both cases I had tried to get it into gear before it had finished its sound and light dashboard routine!
Thanks for that!
It's so fancy, it flashes during start-up. So even if you glance at it and see it lit, you can't be sure if the car is ready or not. You'd have to stare at it intensely to make sure it's really lit, not flashing.Wait till you get the car symbol with the two arrows beneath it, that's your fancy ready light.
touchéthe 2 colours are green and black
For my 24kWh Leaf:Open the door,
get in and sit down,
press the brake pedal
press the start button,
count to 2 and release the pedal
have a deep breath
put the phone on the holder or in the small place under the radio.
put the car into gear (D or R)
That sounds like a 24hr Le Mans styleOver the years I have developed an EV car entry that works for me to cover the start-up delay. It's to lead with my left foot through the open door to hit the brake pedal immediately before entering. I then reach to hit the start button immediately as I sit own. That buys quite a few seconds for it to go through its pre-flight checks and by the time I'm ready to find a gear it has sorted itself out.
