SmartKey Fob Battery Dies– How To Enter Car, Start Engine, or Replace Battery

Did you know that when your SmartKey Fob battery dies, you still can enter your vehicle and start the engine? After I got a “key not found” message, I started the experiments shown in this video so that I can know whether I still can drive the car even if the battery is dead. I will explain how the auto keyless system works and I will also show you how to replace the battery if you choose to.

The example used in this video is a Nissan Leaf 2015. However many cars use the same system. It could be called SmartKeys, Keyless Entry, Keyless Go, Keyless Access, or Passive Entry system.

Hard to Believe: Young Girls With Such Bad Etiquette At EV Charge Station

Hard to Believe: Young Girls With Such Bad Etiquette At EV Charge Station

This is my own real experience, what happened at the EV charge station at Walgreens 399 El Camino Real South San Francisco, CA 94080. Please share this video with as many people as possible. I was so surprised at the lack of courtesy of a couple of people using the quick charger at a charge station next to the SFO airport. By liking this video and sharing it you may help yourselves and a lot of others.

I wanted to take some EV charge station videos when I went to the San Francisco Airport to pick up someone. I knew I had to stop at some EV charge station since the airport is pretty far from my house. I chose a station with quick Level 3 charger because usually a quick charger stops after 30 minutes so my waiting time would probably not be much more than that. And I was so wrong, but not because there was more than one person in front of me. I really couldn’t believe it.

Everything You Want to Know About EV Charging – My Adventure


There is only one kind of gas station but there are so many different EV charge stations. There are different charging networks and different equipment manufacturers and standards.

I will share with you my adventures at various EV charge stations and the mistakes I made. If there are people at the charge station ahead of you, you may not know what to ask yet, then, after other people leave, and it is your turn to charge, then there is no one around whom you can ask. Sure, you may feel embarrassed about asking questions, but you should be grateful if there is someone around the station who can explain things to you. When there was no one around, I had to spend a long time to figure things out myself. I really wished someone had made this kind of collection of videos for me to learn from.

5 Mistakes Made at Various EV Charging Stations


I will share with you 5 mistakes I made at various charging stations. You may feel embarrassed if there are people around, but you should be grateful if there is someone around the station who can explain things to you. When there was no one around, I had to spent a long time to figure things out myself.

1. For the evGo fast charger, pay attention to the tricky lever to unplug. I did not read the instructions, could not unplug it, it was my fault.

2. For the Clipper Creek charger, make sure you follow the correct order and sequence. There was no instruction on how to use it, you have to use trial and error, I was lucky someone explained it to me.

3. For the Blink faster charger, the charger itself was faulty, it was my first time and I was not familiar with the charger, there was no one to ask for help, so I wasted a lot of time to experiment on how to get it working. When I tried a second charger, the unit was not faulty, it was pretty easy. You only need to pay attention to how to latch it and how to unplug it.

I hope by sharing my mistakes, this video can save you time and frustration. Happy charging.

Flat Tire-My Most Embarrassing Moments,Unbelievable, I’m Shocked


I am pretty handy and resourceful but I have to admit my recent most embarrassing moments. Although I’ve had many flat tires in the past, I was surprised and shocked at how little I knew about my new Nissan Leaf.

This is the story: our new Nissan Leaf (a newly leased car) got a flat tire in the middle of a parking lot. So, not the first time, just calmly figure out what to do, right? But then I noticed both left and right had earth moving equipment moving in. and realized that the parking lot was going through construction and renovation. Now I was under pressure just to move the car to somewhere else. Still, not a big deal, just a flat tire, right? Wrong again. Now I am sharing my mistakes with you so that you do not have to make the same ones. Certainly I wish someone told me this (before my flat tire accident).

I am grateful to the construction team, if you are watching and smiling, who did not bulldoze or even tow my car, and in fact were both patient and helpful.:]
