T/M Vehicle System Malfunction on a Leaf

Went to start my 2013 Leaf this morning and it wouldn’t go into drive. After 30 seconds or so I got a message that said “T/M Vehicle System Malfunction”. Anyone have any idea what that is and if it is covered under warranty?

Looking to get it towed to the shop tomorrow most likely.

A quick Internet search revealed that it is likely that the 12 volt battery is discharged. If yours is the original, it is probably due for replacement.

Ha. Seems like a better error message would have been “Replace Your Battery!”. T/M System sounds scary.

That did the trick. Problem solved.
