I have an easy and reliable source for the VSP off switch that fits the newer 12' and up Leaf. I have tested the switch itself and have everything working. Waiting on some Sumitomo terminals and connector to finalize the design. More info soon.

Look forward to an update Msportronics! While most of the time I'm fine with the VSP, sometimes I really want to shut it off -- like backing out of my driveway at 2am.

I hooked up a temporary switch to momentarily ground pin 5 on the VSP on my 2013. Thank you all for this info - I like being quiet early in the morning when I leave for work. I would really like to get a hold of that switch in the picture.

Believe me, I've been tempted. The street is a little too tight and the drive not quite sloped enough to make that a "safe" maneuver, but boy have I been tempted.

That's how I sneak away from my wife :mrgreen: Otherwise the Reverse "ding" alerts the whole family that I am trying to escape.

Well played. The garage door unfortunately ruins my chances of that. It'd be nice to escape without the entire neighborhood knowing though. :D

Do we have any updates on the thread yet? Was talking about this with someone the other day :)

Sorry for the delayed update, I have been pretty busy at work. My neighbor had contacted me about turning the VSP off, which is how I found my way into this project. I have a reliable source for the factory Nissan switch at a cost around $20 with shipping. I am looking for a closer source to possibly drop that price in half. I have tested the switch and it works perfectly. I have a few sources for the connector and terminals, but I am attempting to find a local source that doesn't require a large minimum order. The pin allocation for the switch is as follows:

PIN #
1 Blank
2 VSP Indicator Light (Trigger from VSP Control Unit)
3 Ignition +12V Supply
4 Illumination Ground
5 Illumination +12V Supply
6 Ground
7 Switch Output (Trigger to VSP Control Unit)
8 Blank

I will try to get everything setup this week and hope for a shipment to arrive by early next week. I'll write up an install procedure and make a how-to video. Thank you for your patience.

Good news, I have found a local supplier for the connectors and terminals that require no minimum order. Prices are reasonable and they have plenty of stock. I should have some time over the weekend to build the prototype harness and post results next week.
