Re: Car won't turn off an Update

Wed Jan 11, 2012 12:43 pm

My car won't turn off; it happened this morning.
The car was charged 80% during the night, but I had to charge it to 100% this morning, because I have a longer commute today. 15 minutes before leaving, I remotely turned on the climate control. Opened the trunk while the car is still connected to the charger. I press stop on my EVSE, and pulled the plug.
I put a box in the trunk and at that moment I saw that the control panel is on, which is weird, because I usually see only the climate control lights flashing.
I turned the car off, and it won't turn off. The message that I have gotten is : "while parking apply the parking brake", and "stop the vehicle. I was so confused and the car seemed confused too. I put my foot on the brake and pushed the power button. The car turned on and everything looks normal. I pulled out of the garage, went in it again, put the car on p, and turned it off, but it won't turn off. I got the same messages.
I drove to the dealership and dropped off the car there. They have not seen this before and they do not know how long it is going to take to figure it out.

Did you try applying the Parking Brake as the message suggested?

All these different scenarios of plugged in, then not plugged in, foot on/off brake, press 0/1 button one, two, three times, a/c turned on from your phone, then bypass the charge timer, then walk away with the fob in your pocket, etc etc etc... it's enough to make your head spin! :?

PARKING brake is activated by a lever in the center console, ...
usually by a finger instead of a foot. :lol:

For anyone who hits this in the future, it'd be interesting to know if pressing the power button rapid fire 3x or pressing and holding power works.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I have not heard from the dealership yet and I do not really know why the car was powered on in the first place.

This should kill car while driving, when I done this in Prius, I had hard time to restart the car, but eventually started again.
