Hi GarryAs any had this fault or heard about it PTC heater unit?
Got my new Leaf Tekna 31.02.2014 had it a week and heater and regeneration stopped working correctly still not got the car back, I am in a loan Leaf Visa.
It's all making sense to me now.So a 2014 leaf still has a ptc heater? I thought that was replaced with the heat pump? (On all models except the visia)
Which dealer is that?So took my Leaf back today ( 2nd visit ) so they could fix the 'heating' problem, I wasn't hopeful.
Got a message in the afternoon to say they have fixed it via a software update. Arrived at the dealership to collect car and guess what, yep you got it heating not working and just the same problem with NO HEATING!!!
So again I had to sit in the car and show them the problem - unbelievable.
Car is still at the dealership and we shall see what they say tomorrow but they don't seem to have a clue!
He have a few spare leaf resistive heaters and the expertise to fit if that helps?Nothing like resurrecting an old post.. my 2013 Tekna has just experienced this fault (in the super cold spell of -4 this winter). Remove Climate control doesn't preheat and car takes much longer to heat (only heat pump drawing at max 1kw)... first noticed when running both AC and Heat to demist and warm.. only AC functions in that mode so heat pump must only work in that instance to AC relying on PTC for Heat element.
My leaf is 3 months out of warranty :-( thinking of leaving this as Nissan garages have a reputation for wasting time and money on fault diagnosis even when its quite a known fault on the forums of either a) temperature sensor thinking PTC is over hear or b) PTC heater/wiring at fault.
Interestingly it came on when the car got really cold on a night temps dropped to -5.. but next day it was at fault again.
I did have a side impact from another vehicle.. and its only when returned i have noticed this fault although no idea how i would link the accident with fault and get insurance to pay to fix
