Repair crashed Nissan Leaf 2011

Sat Nov 10, 2018 8:25 am

Hello guys,

I'm repairing a crashed Nissan Leaf 2011.

The front airbags (driver and passanger) has been deploy.
The passanger seat belt has been deploy but the driver seat belt not (I do not know why!!! For me it was a failure of the airbag system)

Images of the car:

I had already changed some parts and fix other parts to confirm that the car works well. Unfortunately the car dont enter in Drive Mode and don't Charge.
I clean all strange DTC errors with Leaf Spy Pro, but i have a few fixes DTC Errors.

Image

I dont have the Heater Water Pump connected because of a leak. But i have all high voltage cables connected and all 12v cables connected, except the headlights and exterior lights.

Some people tell me when you have a crash with the Nissan Leaf the software lock the high voltage connection and i need to unlock the system with the Nissan Consult. But some people say that it is not necessary. So I do not know who to believe.

I arrived to a point that i need to know if i need the Nissan Consult to reboot the system. And not to go after errors that do not exist.

Tnks 4 your help

If the front seatbelts did not "deploy" (do you mean show stretch/burn marks indicative of use in a big crash?), there's an easy explanation: the driver wasn't wearing it at the time. There's nothing but fear of death/injury, and fear of the law, to make a driver buckle up, unlike many US-market cars in the 1970's that required the driver's seatbelt be buckled in order to allow the vehicle to start.

I was alone in the car and wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.

It is curious because the passenger's seatbelt airbag has deployed and the driver's dont.

I can't imagine this being a very cost-effective endeavor. Why are you trying to repair one in such a terrible condition?

Seatbelt airbag? This must be unique to the European market, since our cars here in North America don’t have that. Our Leafs have the usual 3 point seatbelts, plus the driver’s airbag in the steering wheel (which looks deployed), the passenger airbag in the dash above the glovebox, curtain airbags above the windows on both sides, and the thorax “side impact” airbag in the outboard part of the seat roughly about the same level as your main body cavity. But no “seatbelt airbag” for us.

Everyone's free to spend their hobby/free time however they wish, but I second this opinion. Pull the battery pack, sell or part it out for the cells, and use the money towards another cheap leaf fixer upper. You can probably pay for a salvage with minor damage for the cost of the phone with parted out...

Unfortunately in my country the Nissan Leaf are not very cheap as in the United States. The cheapest Nissan Leaf in Portugal costs € 10,000 with 80km of autonomy.

How is the repair going? More pictures?

Maybe airbag detection sensors are crushed in the front, which prevents car from starting?

What codes do you have left?

The major problem its P31E1 00C0 EV/HEV HV System Interlock Error EVC-305.
