Dave, I remember reading here or on the Tesla forum that Kevin Sharpe had a similar experience with his Roadster. Presumably, the issue was detected remotely with the help of the data the car transmits over the air. I won't want to speculate too much, but it might be worth asking how Tesla does it, and direct the same questions at Nissan. Based on the number of pages reserved for module replacements in the service manual, one could see that Nissan anticipates this type of service to be fairly commonplace. We had a discussion about this last summer at a BayLEAF meeting, and it was assumed then that the pack would have to be shipped to a specialized tech center. This is the case with the ActiveE for instance, but it's a small fleet compared to the number of Leafs in the field.
