Even if it's wrapped, and drains blocked (are the doors shuts and returns also wrapped?), it should affect other systems first, not the infotainment.

Just disable passive entry when you wash the car (actually you should have it disabled all the time for safety imo) and stay far enough with the keyfob so it won't pre-drop the windows.

Yes, door shuts and returns. Mostly wrap, some plasti dip too.
Infotainment works. Just volume knob and manual AC controls don't.

Question Same Issue Post Car Wash

I got a car wash last week and when I started my car (2017 Ghibli SQ4) the MTC was stuck rapidly changing radio stations, AC controls, phone features, etc... Stopped in at dealership and they disconnected the battery and reconnected and that fixed the problem. Went back to car wash today and the touchscreen is fine but AC controls and volume control wheel are non-operable. Did anyone ever get a solution for this?

maybe water is getting into the trunk, which is where the battery is located. next time you get a wash, check to see if there's any moisture near the battery.

i'm a serial car washer, like at least once a week if not twice, and this has never happened to me. I've had 2 ghiblis and neither has ever acted wonky in a car wash, both handwashes and automatic no touch/high pressure washes.

Current:
2018 Ghibli SQ4 GranSport
Grigio Maratea / Rosso Premium Ext Leather w/Nero stitching
Exterior and Interior Carbon Pack / Hands Free Trunk
20in forged Anthracites / Red Brake Calipers
Nero Alcantara Roof Lining / Trident Stitched Headrests
Premium 900W HK audio / Skyhook
Heated / Cooled ventilated Sport seats

2017 Range Rover Sport HSE Dynamic

Previous:
2015 Ghibli SQ4 / 2016 MB GLE 350 / 2013 Audi S5 / 2008 Audi A4 / 2001 Acura Integra GS / 1995 Acura Integra LS
