Not good. Please keep us updated what they find with the battery. What part of the world are you in, Phoenix or Texas? Have you been charging to 100% in that heat?cfl wrote:I couldn't drive anymore, nor turn the leaf on or off (emergency shutdown, as in pushing the power switch for 2 sec or three times had no effect). .... the temperature outside (100 Farenheit) and because the battery was too low (at 4 bars....)
100F is a cool day here in PHX. I typically get home with 1 or 2 bars left and have driven many days above 115F. Never encountered anything like what you described.cfl wrote: (he claimed it might be because of the temperature outside (100 Farenheit) and because the battery was too low (at 4 bars....).
The switch point for 5 to 6 bars is about 25C/75 degrees F, if I recall correctly.cfl wrote:this is San Jose, CA (we had a three day heat wave where we got temperatures in the high 90, almost unbearable .
Battery temperature was 6 bars (its always either 5 or 6, I have never seen it higher or lower), and some guy at the dealer ship claimed that the battery was cooled.... (fortunately this was not the local Leaf expert).

Central Texas, just finished up a summer with 84 days above 100 deg. Many days above 105. Leaf was driven most days 60-90 miles to near the bottom of the pack; we NEVER get home with two bars. Car has performed flawlessly.cfl wrote: battery suddenly dropped very low (he claimed it might be because of the temperature outside (100 Farenheit) and because the battery was too low (at 4 bars....). Still waiting for a call back
