On a 2013 Leaf just push the HEAT button so the light goes out, if you want the heat to be able to come back on simply push the HEAT button again so the LED lights back up. Note pushing the AUTO button may also bring the HEAT back on, pushing HEAT again will turn it off.
The older Leafs(pre '13) this mod was meant for lacked the HEAT button and would bring the heat on anytime the car called for it.

Are you talking real range using leafspy or driving until the car turtles or are you talking about the GuessOMeter (GOM for short)?

Turning on the AC might lower the number on the GOM but it really won't affect range much if the temps outside are above 50F.

Set your inside temp for 60F and the fan speed to 1, 2, 3, or 4 bars and let it run, if you get too cold turn the fan speed down, don't change the temp setting unless you have the heat cut off switch.

Cooling is nearly free on a long trip, cooling costs a bit extra in the first mile or so.

Heating is the one that really drops range.

GOM is worthless.

thanks in advance
You have got several very good replies to this to I will not repeat them. To see the actual power consumtion you have to look at at power consumtion screen.

I am going to by very busy for the next couple of months, but will ship out orders within two or three days.

Soon shipping will also start from the US, lowering the shipping cost for US-owners to 1/3.

I also have gotten some very interessting prototypes for resolving the issue with rusting on the top of the front dampers.

I am also negotiating with my supplier for a fix for the poor grounding to the headlights, but as of now the cost is to high, and the problem to little.

I have however had some progress on making a better switch for the heater-harness. And it even has its own circut for backlight. As of now I just need to get the provider to make covers with "ON/OFF" or "Heater". And the switch looks very OEM. It will look very simular to the VSP-switch.

Best regards,


Tor

Very cool upgrade, I like it! I received my harness a week or two ago, but have yet to have a chance to install it. Thank you so much for developing a complete solution to this pesky problem!

That would be very cool if it fits into the "heated seats" space/hole/blank. Hope you can offer as a stand-alone item (although the shipping could cost > the switch)!
