My 12-volt battery started having problems. The car would start but the breaking system wouldn’t work for a few seconds or the car would move forward even though it did not I push on the excelerator. It turns out these anomalies are common with the Leaf when the battery is failing. I had to get towed to two dealers to get the battery replaced because the Leaf technician was gone at the first dealer.
