LEAF ZE0 charger replacement – B29C1 P3173

From Dala’s EV Repair.

In this episode, we take a look at a broken 2012 Nissan LEAF charger. It fails to charge on AC, with the official dealership wanting 3.5k€ for a new charger. Here we fix it with a used part for 750€.

The 2011-2012 LEAF has a notoriously bad design for the on board charger. They released 8 hardware revisions for this unit, and then moved on to a better design for the 2013+ AZE0. It sometimes can be repaired, but replacement is a safer bet.
