These are probably unrelated, but let me explain why I think they might be. Some background first: My 2011 Leaf, brought home May 31, 2011, had its first 12v service battery replaced under warranty in 2013. About 6 months ago, the car started exhibiting non-start issues, which I knew to be the 12v battery having aged out and needing replacement. I charged it with a 12v Craftsman charger at home once or twice before finally replacing it in September with a new 12v battery from Costco.
Afterward, I noticed the driver's window would auto-down, but not auto-up. Mentally, I was trying to recall: has it always done auto-down only? Or is now issue that I need to troubleshoot?
And NOW, today, the heater stopped working. This might be a stand-alone issue, which I now need to troubleshoot and I have no idea where to begin. From some reading I've done on here, it appears that it's common for the heater to fail on these, although it seems more common that the 2013-14 models more commonly have issues.
I'm hoping the heater issue is a simple fix maybe related to the battery replacement where maybe something needs to be reset. Add in the possibly weird behavior of the auto window and that's got me thinking this is all tied together. Or, possibly not. I'm looking for input on what next steps to take.
Thanks in advance.
