Hi Anko,

I will update it.

With the inclusion of fix #170, "Fix for 0% SOH on 30KWh models with Nissan BMS update" in the new 3.2.001 firmware, the user guide needs updating.

I do not seem to have the right to do that, so can someone do it for me?


It concerns the "OVMS v3 Advanced User Guide", Chapter "NL Nissan Leaf", section "Configuration":

- The former [2016] section title should be updated to [2016-2017]

- The section about the 30 kwh models should be taken out of the [2016-2017] section and into its own section (there are 2015 30 kwh models, I own one…)

- The new section about the 30kwh models needs an extra command to also update the "newCarAh" setting to 79 (from 66)


Full new text:



[2011-2015 models]

To enable remote commands, either

Unplug any CARWINGS, Nissan Connection or TCU units or

on Generation 1 Cars, wire the RC3 to TCU pin 11 (see MyNissanLeaf post)


[2016-2017 models]

Set the model year as follows


    config set xnl modelyear 2016


    config set xnl modelyear 2017


[30 kwh models]

For models with a 30 kwh battery pack, set  the capacity manually as follows


    config set xnl maxGids 356

    config set xnl newCarAh 79
