Readiness for inspection/maintenance (I/M) test

Readiness for inspection/maintenance (I/M) test  - Technical and consumer information - Infiniti JX Owners Manual - Infiniti JX

Due to legal requirements in some states and Canadian Provinces, your vehicle may be required to be in what is called the ready condition for an Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) test of the emission control system.

The vehicle is set to the ready condition when it is driven through certain driving patterns. Usually, the ready condition can be obtained by ordinary usage of the vehicle.

If a powertrain system component is repaired or the battery is disconnected, the vehicle may be reset to a not ready condition. Before taking the I/M test, check the vehicles inspection/maintenance test readiness condition. Place the ignition switch in the ON position without starting the engine. If the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) comes on steady for 20 seconds and then blinks for 10 seconds , the I/M test condition is not ready. If the MIL does not blink after 20 seconds, the I/M test condition is ready. Contact a INFINITI retailer to set the ready condition or to prepare the vehicle for testing.
