•When only the charging timer end time is
set, the system automatically stops charg-
ing when the Li-ion battery charges to a
full charge. Charging may stop before the
scheduled end time.
• If charging timer and the Climate Ctrl.
Timer are operating at the same time due
to an overlap of the timer settings, you can
prioritize which function receives electri-
cal power first. For additional information,
refer to “Leaf Navigation System Owner’s
• When charging is set as the first priority,
the Climate Ctrl. Timer does not start until
10 segments (80%) of the Li-ion battery
available charge gauge are illuminated.
• Even when the climate control is set as the
first priority, the climate control system
will be turned off when the electric de-
mands of the climate control system is
more than can be provided to the Li-ion
battery for charging.
• Some charging stations used to perform
normal charge are equipped with timer
functions. If the charger timer function
and the vehicle timer are both set, and the
two timers are not set to operate at the same time, it is possible that the charger
will snot start or the battery will not be
charged to the level expected.
• If the Li-ion battery warmer (if so
equipped) is operating while the Climate
Ctrl. Timer or Remote Climate Control is
being used, performance of the Climate
Control will be reduced.
• The Li-ion battery may not charge to the
expected level using the Charging Timer
when a Start time and End time are set
while the Li-ion battery warmer (if so
• Set only the Charging Timer End time
when charging in cold weather. The ve-
hicle automatically determines when to
start charging to fully charge the Li-ion
battery, even if the Li-ion battery warmer
(if so equipped) operates. Charging ends
before the set End time if the Li-ion bat-
tery is fully charged.
• The 12–volt battery can become dis-
charged if the charging timer is operated
repeatedly between the Li-ion battery
charges when the vehicle is not used for
an extended period of time. •
Charging timer is performed according to
the current time setting on the bottom left
of the display. When setting the charging
timer function, be sure to check that the
current time displayed is correct.
• To turn off the charging timer function,
touch ON on the timer charge setting
screen until the indicator lights are turned
off. Touch SAVE to apply the change. If the
settings shown on the screen are correct,
touch OK. After this operation has been
performed, the indicator disappears and
the charging timer function is turned off.
The start and stop time settings are not
deleted, even if the charging timer func-
tion is turned off.
• If the day of the week is not selected on
the timer charge setting screen, the charg-
ing timer will not operate on that day. The
system will wait until the net set charging
time to perform charging.

start charging based on the condition of
the power source and the estimated time
required for charging to a full level.

Every time the EVSE plug is connected to an outlet, all indicator lights illuminate for 0.5 seconds.
After initial processing is completed, when the EVSE is not connected to the vehicle, or the EVSE is con-
nected to the vehicle but charging is not being performed.
While the battery is being charged
When the ground cable is disconnected
Check the grounding of the outlet being used. If the grounding is normal, contact a NISSAN certified LEAF
When the temperature of the electrical plug is too hot, or the EVSE is unable to detect the temperature of the
electrical plug, check that the electrical plug is connected correctly. If it is connected normally, stop use im-
mediately and contact a NISSAN certified LEAF dealer.
When an electric leakage occurs or the EVSE malfunctions
Stop use immediately and contact a NISSAN certified LEAF dealer.
When the EVSE malfunctions
Stop use immediately and contact a NISSAN certified LEAF dealer.
If the EVSE control box indicator light does not illuminate after connecting the plug to the outlet, check the
GFCI and circuit breaker for the outlet. If either the GFCI or breaker has tripped, the circuit may not be suit-
able for use with EVSE. You should have a licensed electrician inspect and repair the electrical circuit. If the
GFCI breaker is not tripped, stop using the EVSE and contact a NISSAN certified LEAF dealer.
