decodes the VIN but on my car at least, it doesn't work. There 
associated poll requests set up in 
cause a relay to go click every 30s or so while the car is charging, so 
it's doing something, but on my car, not the right thing.

In my branch I disabled the poll requests to stop the relay clicking and 
haven't come back to look at why it doesn't work yet.

The earlier manuals are at 
https://carmanuals2.com/brand/nissan/leaf-2012-372 and I can't find a 
VIN decode in them, but maybe my search fu is weak.
