2011 Infiniti M56: The Car Is All Right

October 31, 2011

Because of Doug Newcomb's problem with a dead battery in the M56 last week, the exact culprit of which had yet to be resolved, Vehicle Testing Manager Mike Schmidt asked me to take the Infiniti over the weekend to see if everything was okay. He must've thought: "Monticello has nothing to do, what will it matter if the car dies on him?"

Luckily, the M56 started up just fine every time. Of course that also means we still don't know exactly what drained the battery in the first place. Doug swears he didn't leave lights or anything on in the car.

The only thing I did have to do was reset the power window automatic-up function, which was screwed up by the dead battery, the simple process of which was covered here last Friday.
