This bulletin applies to the 2008 Infiniti QX56, and any Infiniti models equipped with I-Key (Intelligent Key).
Before starting any I-Key registration procedure, the vehicle battery voltage must be at and remain above 12.4 volts. The transmission selector lever must be in the Park position for A/T vehicles or in the Neutral position for manual transmission vehicles.
“Wiggle” the steering wheel back and forth to make sure that the steering lock is not bound-up on the column, and then release the steering lock. You may then proceed with I-Key registration.
If these steps are not followed before I-Key registration is started, electronic damage to the steering lock may occur.
