Right - and it sounds like even if I pay the $85 for their test and the see the same result - they cant/wont do anything either - its true I can push / escalate. I can talk to the manager and then the owner and then call Nissan no gas line and discuss and escalate as per their docs. If I were to choose the escalate path it sure seems like I would be way better off having a Nissan dealer test showing the bad cell than just leafspy. I fear paying $85 only to have the dealer say it all came back fine.. I also fear the whole escalation path - also lots of BS and frustration..
Its very odd though to think that they don't accept the data that their own car is outputting..
There's no way in hell Nissan corporate would approve a warranty claim based upon Leaf Spy output only. They didn't write the tool and don't know how accurate or inaccurate its rendering to the user of output its. From the minimal amount of gathered from talking to Turbo3 years ago about this, sounds like there's a ton of traffic on the CAN buses. It's not like he knows what all of it means and meaning of the values.
At least he was able to do some reverse engineering and real time confirmation to get the voltages right: https://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?t=17470
You need to find the 30 kWh version of https://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?t=16070
since the voltages would probably be different than a 24 kWh pack.
You can maybe just buy a subscription (https://www.nissan-techinfo.com/deptsubs.aspx
) to print out or download the PDFs of the service manual (https://www.nissan-techinfo.com/find.aspx?dept_id=10
) for the '17 for this section. You need to get the dealer to run that procedure. It will fail given how bad the imbalance is. Or, maybe you can get them to bring up those pages since they definitely have the whole manual or subscription to it.
Nissan dealer service depts would use Consult III Plus (https://www.nissan-techinfo.com/dept.aspx?dept_id=25
) on all their vehicles.
