Malfunction situation in Nissan Note
In the NISMO-S specification lithium-ion battery internal fuse, the fuse specification setting is inappropriate, so depending on the driving method, deterioration may be accelerated early. The fuse may blow, causing the warning light to illuminate and the power supply to the motor to stop, making it impossible to drive.
In response to this, Nissan has reported that all vehicles and lithium-ion battery internal fuses will be replaced with countermeasures.
