I had a T/M Malfunction on my 2013 Leaf and dealer said my 12v battery was dead. It had lights and door locks worked, but it would not shift. Dealer assured me that this was the problem and I am good to go.
This is my second incident -- both were similar in that I pushed the brake and when I hit the start button, the pedal depressed to the floor and the car wouldn't do anything after that. I didn't get a T/M error the first time (about a month ago).
Just sharing my experiences and symptoms in case others have had similar events and to give gurus and experts more data.
I still love the ride, but I'm getting frustrated . . . dunno why I thought an ecar would be trouble-free . . . my toaster has never failed, but I suppose computer is the closer analogy . . .
Speaking of appliances, have you seen this?http://youtu.be/Nn__9hLJKAk
Yours in Leafdom,
