Display stopped working on 2013

2013 Nissan Leaf.


Yesterday my speedometer stopped working.

Actually, the whole display stopped working. Display is powered, there is a visible backlight, however, nothing else is displayed: no clock, no temp, no speed, no Eco Tree.

Has anyone experience a similar failure? Otherwise the car operates normally, currently almost 80K miles.

Re: Display stopped working on 2013

Haven't heard of it with a Leaf but it has happened a couple times with our '07 Prius, most notably when it's very cold. It comes back by itself, generally when it warms up and for older Prius's anyway it seems to be a regular issue, enough so that companies sell a rebuilt part to you and then you send them back your old one. Apparently you have to basically dismantle the dash on the Prius so sofar I haven't done anything about it.
In your case I'd try bringing the Leaf into a heated garage and see if that restores dash operation??

Re: Display stopped working on 2013

Is your brightness turned all the way down (via the brightness button in the cluster of 4 on the left side)? What if you turn your headlights on/off?

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