    Hello I could do with some help from you.
    Our 24kwh leaf has been deregistered by Nissan and original owner removed.

    We followed instructions given by Nissan, registered ok got two emails to one to say sim card activated and carwings registration.

    We put details into car and nothing and still have grey car with axe through it.

    According to Nissan the tech needs reset.

    We live in Cork so I rang Kevin O'Leary - they said they don't do everything serving.
    I rang Kearys Cork three times but no answer.
    These are main dealers in Cork lol.

    Can anyone recommend how I can get reset done somewhere near Cork or advise on how to get it working.
    Below is part of email Nissan sent.
    Many thanks for help

    Cleaned the OP a bit so it is easier to read.

    On topic, carwings is mentioned here
    https://www.irishevowners.ie/looking-into-buying-a-used-ev-read-waynes-experience/
    When you have the Vehicle Registration Certificate in your own name, you send a scan of that and proof of address via email to [email protected] and it can be set up with your details then.

    Part of setting it up involves you creating an account and entering details into the computer on the car, but the instructions provided by Nissan for all that are very clear and simple.

    One big advantage of doing this is that you can then use your smartphone to remotely turn on the preheating in your car.

    anyone know how often a 2012 Leaf transmits status, usage etc. data to Nissan's Carwings servers? I'm using MyLeaf on the phone but the trip data is always out-of-date, even with refreshes. ta
