If the malfunction indicator light comes on steady or blinks while the engine is running, it may indicate a potential emission control malfunction. The malfunction indicator light may also come on steady if the fuel-filler cap is loose or missing, or if the vehicle runs out of fuel. Check to make sure the fuel-filler cap is installed and closed tightly, and that the vehicle has at least 3 US gallons (14 liters) of fuel in the fuel tank. After a few driving trips, the light light should turn off if no other potential emission control system malfunction exists. If this indicator light remains on for 20 seconds and then blinks for 10 seconds when the engine is not running, it indicates that the vehicle is not ready for an emission control system inspection/maintenance test. (See “Readiness for Inspection/ Maintenance (I/M) test” in the “9. Technical and consumer information” section.)

Operation:

The malfunction indicator light will come on in one of two ways:

► Malfunction indicator light on steady — An emission control system malfunction has been detected. Check the fuelfiller cap if the LOOSE FUEL CAP warning appears in the dot matrix liquid crystal display. If the fuel-filler cap is loose or missing, tighten or install the cap and continue to drive the vehicle. The after a few driving trips. If the light should turn off after a few driving trips. If the light light does not turn off after a few driving trips, have the vehicle inspected by an INFINITI retailer. You do not need to have your vehicle towed to the retailer.
► Malfunction indicator light blinking — An engine misfire has been detected which may damage the emission control system. To reduce or avoid emission control system damage: 1) Do not drive at speeds above 45 MPH (72 km/h). 2) Avoid hard acceleration or deceleration. 3) Avoid steep uphill grades. 4) If possible, reduce the amount of cargo being hauled or towed. The malfunction indicator light may stop blinking and remain on. Have the vehicle inspected by an INFINITI retailer. You do not need to have your vehicle towed to the retailer.
