Hello! I am rather new to the P71 gang and hope to get a wealth of knowledge from my time here!

My P71 is of the 04 flavor, is a Beige coloring, and only has 133K on her! I purchased her from someone who was frustrated trying to figure out an electrical issue but I am hoping to get her back to spec!

Welcome, there is def. a lot of knowledge on this site.

The CV is a pretty simple car so electrical gremlins are more often than not the result of the previous owner adding and removing equipment. In fact the one I just bought had a faulty junction box that was drawing down the battery, it was fixed by the agency, but that is relatively common.

Great cars and 133k is nothing, if it has a strong drivetrain it will be cranking away for years to come.

Welcome! Lots of awesome CVN'ers in NC. With an '04 you're into "old car" territory. So gremlins are now the norm. I'm in an endless cycle of hunting down weird symptoms in my '04 with 140k.
