2009 Nissan GT-R: Smart key partially puked

February 12, 2009

The smart key on the Skyline R35 partially puked last night. I wasn't able to unlock either door with the door mounted switch -- I had to use the remote key, which worked fine. The car started up, no problem, with the key in my pocket. Mike knows about it and will monitor.

This my first time to drive it after the reprogramming, and I got some wheelspin last night. I got away from a few stoplights somewhat quickly, but didn't floor the pedal, and the traction control came on. I definitely felt some wheelspin - I think maybe more than before the reprogram(?) But I have to check with Josh on this.

Oh yeah, the photo above has nothing to do with this blog. It's just an archived Jacobs shot that I didn't want to go to waste. It's suitable as a screensaver, don't you think?
