I don't know about the 2013's, but I think the heater in the S is similar (the same?) as that found in the 2011/2012s. There have been a few heater failures on those models and the repairs have not gone very smoothly. It sounds as if the 2013 Ss may be similar.bhilst wrote:I'm wondering how wide spread heater problems are on 2013 Leaf S models?
The term "heater control unit" likely means an electronic switch which switches HVDC to the heater resistor. It sounds like you are referring to the unit on the console. Since that also controls air conditioning, I suspect it is not know as the "heater control unit". Let me have a look at the service manual to see what Nissan calls these things...stjohnh wrote:The OP needs the Heater control unit, not the heater itself. The control unit on the 2013 S is not like any other Leaf. I like the control unit on my S much better than the one on my wife's 2013 SV.
