Well, the bug hit me this morning. To make a long story short, the car was in the driveway, turned on in accessory mode, in park, and with the AC running (it had been heated soaked). When I got in about 10 minutes later and changed to On mode, I could not select Reverse. I turned it off and restarted it but still could not select Drive or Reverse... All other attempts were equally fruitless. At this point I had two options: either have it towed to a Nissan Dealer - and the dealers around me are all crap - or see if I could reboot it somehow. On a whim, I disconnected the 12 volt battery and let it sit for about 10 minutes. I then reconnected the battery and tried it again. Success! It once again operated completely normally. Moral of the story: Until we know definitively what is causing this, I will not use the AC unless the car is On and in Drive. My car is about a month old so it apparently is not restricted to just the most recently delivered vehicles...
This has certainly been by far the most interesting week of Leaf ownership for me, starting with my little problem on Monday night (which was not the car's fault)!
