The recall notice advises that the function to indicate Automatic Transmission failure was not programmed in the Electronic Control Module (ECM).

This was due to a mismatch of On-Board Diagnosis communication architecture between the new Electronic Control Module and old Controlled Area Network.

What are the hazards?

The Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) does not illuminate and the driver is unaware of the concern, which may be an emissions regulation non-compliance.

What should affected Q50/Q60 owners do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by direct mail and advised to contact their Infiniti Dealer to have the ECM reprogrammed with updated logic.
