Qashqai Model: Mk.3 Qashqai - J12 (2021+) New Model

Post by martinEden »

Hello!

I've got the question:
Every once in a while, when I take my foot off the gas pedal, there are jolts. It feels like its engine braking, upshifting on a manual transmission.
Have you ever experienced this?
This is, as I understand it, software settings. On j11, engine braking could be easily disabled by software via obd2 connector and elm327 device.
But on j12, I can't connect through the cvtz50 program.
Does anyone have experience with disabling engine braking?
This makes me very upset with this car :cry:

Thank you!

Do you have manual or X-tronic ?
Might be the mild-hybrid system that is recharging the battery on deceleration or cutting out the engine below a certain speed.

I've got X-tronic, I hope it's not a mild-hybrid system because, probably, there won't be a fix for it and this issue is a specific thing for this car...sadly

Qashqai J12 is definitely a mild-hybrid system ...

Hi!
Have you tried to disable braking via cvtz50 app? Any luck or what error you’ve got?
