Some of you may remember me from "back in the day"... I've been around these forums on and off for quite a few years now....

 

Very happy to say that although I recently had a really bad setback with a dead battery issue on my Sylvia ('13 FFH), and was even on the brink of letting her go for a Nissan Leaf (could not make a deal- they wanted too much), after the latest trip to the dealership.. I think they finally fixed the issue!!!

 

Reason I say that is.. my hybrid battery was not flatlined first thing in the morning like it has been for the last several weeks... 

 

So looks like I'll be staying with my girl.. and visiting these forums from time to time.. I hope and pray I can get another several great years out of my Sylvia..

 

Take care and see ya around.

Nevermind... it died again... I give up... it is back in the shop again.. for same issue.. current dealer (a different one than my original) is also clueless as to how to fix it..

 

Headed to Nissan Dealership for trade in.. and getting something else... I can't deal with this anymore...

Sorry to hear about you're problems. Back in 2009 on another FFH forum there were some discussions about the possible pitfalls of owning the vehicle and among them was the possibility that the dealers could not fix them. There have been a few of these cases. There have been a few "flat HVB's in the morning" in 2010's and I have had two instances of it in the last year. I'm watching it like a hawk. The Battery Energy Control Module ( BECM ) is a suspect. I'll take a picture of it and take it in if it happens again. I had recently disconnected the 12 vdc battery to do a hard reset of the Sync to improve my cell phone connection which seems to have worked. A few days later I had the low HVB. It hasn't happened since. The day before as I was nearing home after a 15 mile drive, I noticed the HVB to be almost full which never occurs on this drive. I wondered if I was having a re-conditioning event but energy would come out of the HVB which doesn't happen in those events until they're over.

Good luck guys.. my ride with my Sylvia has ended.. 

 

I now have a brand new '16 Nissan Altima... all the same tech as my FFH, but no more hybrid battery... I will miss all of you, and my beloved Sylvia.. but I had to get something that would start and run...

 

 

Safe travels, and thanks for the fun.. good luck all!!!!

Could you list the VIN in case somebody shows up with it here again?

Good luck. I remember the good old days when we, among others, were tracking our cars at the same. My 2013 FFH has been gone for awhile not, but I still have the '13 MKZh. Absolutely no battery issues.

VIN is the vehicle identification number. If somebody shows up here with the same problems in the future, it might be the same car.

Of course. However, I didn't know people actually posted them on open forums, nor am I sure about the ethics of such. What if someone actually fixes the problem after tinkering with it, or even spends a great deal of money to do so? It's just interesting that some advise against posting a VIN of a currently owned car... Not wanting to debate, just commenting.
