Re: Dead Car, Dead 12V Battery

Try checking it while it is plugged in. I'm curious to see if it is charging then.

Re: Dead Car, Dead 12V Battery

On my Nissan Leaf the 12 volt battery does not charge when the car is plugged in. Leaving the car plugged in for 60 hours would lead my Leaf to be dead, just as your car was, especially if there was any draw, like a bluetooth OBD2 transmitter. I had thought that the Bolt was programmed differently, ...

Re: Misadventures at Anaheim Stadium

I have been through similar crap with my Leaf a few times, minus the towing mishaps. A USB charged jump start battery, left plugged in for 10 minutes or so, will usually charge the 12 volt enough to boot up.

Re: From a Leaf to a Bolt: Early Returns

It's okay, she isn't on this forum. But in all seriousness a hockey goalie doesn't travel light. I firmly believe that people should buy as much car as they need and no more, and that gear will drive my next decision. I hope there are good options. So far that electric VW bus is nothing but vaporware.

Re: From a Leaf to a Bolt: Early Returns

I like this conversation. Of course different people will have different requirements. I have a 2014 Leaf right now that has good points and bad. I have not been happy with Nissan or their dealerships. A bigger problem is that my son is a hockey goalie. I can fit his bag in the car with the seats do...

Re: has anyone found success with TOU (time-of-use) rates at home?

I looked into a TOU in NJ and they add a $10 equipment charge to the bill every month for the meter. There goes all of the potential savings. Is there no additional charge elsewhere?

Re: New tech battery for our 2017 bolts in the future?

If the Leaf is any comparison, the packs will not be reverse compatible. Automakers really are just about profit, not about sustainability. They don't make electric cars to be green, they do it for financial reasons.

I will add that I use an accountant for many reasons and got the full $7500 back. Exactly as explained above, it is real,

Re: Tire sealant and compressor kit

I own a Leaf, but it came with the same system. A compressor and a can of goo. I had occasion to use it last week, and to my great surprise it worked. I drove to a tire shop where they pointed out that all of my tires were giving out after only 25 thousand miles, but that is another story. My tire w...
