Re: Mobile operators to shut down 3G networks in 2022

Mon May 24, 2021 12:40 pm

After doing a TON of research on this for my 2013 leaf SV, it appears that the newest part, superseding the older ones is 283B0-3NF2B, the FCC ID on this (from looking up other parts with the same lookup code - 283B0P) is N7NSL8080, this contains the Sierra wireless SL8080 modem, which supports 4G bands. The pricing is the same as the previous model, and they both show compatibility with the 2013-2015 leaf SL/SV. It looks like if you request this part number for the upgrade, you should be in good shape for 4G from everything I can see about the chip it uses.

This is the part with the same lookup code where I was able to see the FCC ID:

Here's the official leaf part, kinda hard to read, but it's the same FCC ID:

https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2018/ ... 3-9999.pdf NTB17-015b was the latest rev of the 2G to 3G TCU upgrade procedure for gen 1 Leafs.

Unfortunately, it looks like there's a revision C that I don't have the PDF for. But, https://www.aboutautomobile.com/Technic ... cal-System was a hit that came up that has stuff like this:

Thanks for the research. This still requires the dealer to configure with Consult to work, right? I'd be very interested in hearing of someone successfully doing this.

Incidentally, the linked part gives me a "Unable to verify part fitment for your vehicle" message for my 2017 SV (searched by VIN). Seems like there are a bunch of TCU variants.

AT&T appears to have removed 3G from the tower(s) nearest my house in the last week, so no more telematics from that location. I'm getting random notifications about the battery being fully charged, presumably where the car picks up a signal.
