Someone, in the middle of a topic on a different subject, mentioned and linked to a post on mynissanleaf that explained how to drive the Leaf inverter by sending it the correct CAN messages without using a third party brain board. I have been searching on this forum and on mynissanleaf, but my google-fu is pathetic and I can't find anything.


If someone remembers or can find that link, I would be most appreciative.

Still on thread (sort of)

Anyone know if the leaf charger has been hacked yet or is being hacked, would be a shame to buy one if I have a perfectly good one on a scrap car.

Just being lazy really, my project should be able to start proper after XMAS and getting the leaf charger bit working is on the list

I went ahead and bought one off these, controls the standard leaf inverter with just can messages, they are not cheap.

After two fried units and lots email help I could it get it to talk to my inverter.

spent alot of time effert and money .

Have shelved the idea now, going to wait till Johannes releases his board.

Good luck if anyone who venture down the canbus route.

I think they offer a paired inverter with ECU unit as a package.

I'm very interesting in getting the charger to work as well. It sure would be a lot simpler to use the whole setup.

@bigpie: That is probably it. I t just didn't right to my memory when I saw it.


@Everybody else. Controlling the Charger/DC-DC would be a giant benefit. It would make using all those part so much easier.

I am sure it does, just didn't for for me, they tried to suggest that I had a faulty invertor.
I wasn't prepared to spend anther 500 just to find out.:confused:
