Good news!

I did some inquiring with the Simon Malls and finally got an email answer back from them last Month:

Good Afternoon Ralph,

Thank you for reaching out to us. In response to your inquiry, I think you’ll be pleased. Opry Mills is actively seeking ways to install charging stations on our property. While I don’t have many details at the moment, the project is a high priority for us. Please feel free to contact me periodically to check the status of this project.

Kindest regards,

Jamie Phillips

That still means only time will tell, but the more EV drivers – go to the Customer Service Counter and fill out a Survey card – and put that as one of there “TOP Requests on it” that will put some spin in the right direction





So if you need a juice up @ 30 AMP, then hold your seat…  They only give you a spot for 24 Hours, no short term like 4 hour deal. The whole charge will be $41.05 AAA with discount included.

Since an invalid charging event on a GE charger (at the HCA Nashville Location 2505 park Plaza Nashville, TN 37203) the car has started to switch on the Main Warning light in the Dash and does not complete the Charging Process (roughly after 1 hours worth of charge) also the Leaf Spy App (Android app) reports DTC error codes:

1. (B29C1 2308 Charger EVSE VC-98)
2. (B29C1 2908 Charger EVSE VC-98)
3. (P3171 0008 EV/HEV)
4. (P3170 0008 EV/HEV)
5. (P316C 0008 EV/HEV)


After some research I found a discussion on myNissanLEAF.com – where another 2013 LEAF owner had to go through having the Charger replace – and then a month later the same thing started again – after he called the Dealer he learned that Nissan has come up with a software update to take care of this issue.
Issue with LEAF not completing a full charge – throwing errors – DTC

FYI if anyone comes back to look at this: The car charged normally for the last two months then started doing the same thing last week.  I took it back to the dealership and they told me my vehicle was one of the first they saw with the problem and that a month later Nissan started rolling out firmware updates that wouldn’t need the PDM replaced.  They updated it and things have been normal the last few nights.



All the way to Fall Creek Falls state park with overnight stay at the Inn who have 2 BLINK EVSE installed and active with our 2013 LEAF, just took us about 1 1/2 longer (for charging layover) than it would have taken normally – and it was such a peacefull trip –
