Default Infiniti QX30 "Inoperative" Issue?

Hi! I leased my QX30 in February 2017, and have had no problems, but as of a few weeks ago, the light that look like a swerving car, and the light that looks like a swerving car with "off" below it (attached in photo) have come on at random times as well as the message "inoperative see operators manual", usually when I am driving in city/stop-and-go traffic. This results in my accelerator acting strange, as I have to push harder on the gas to go forward, and when it finally starts to move it jolts ahead aggressively. Last night, the check engine light also came on which has me very worried. I plan on taking it in to the dealership tomorrow but was curious if anyone else was having this issue. Thanks!

To clarify this is the "Vehicle Dynamic Control" light and the "VDC off" light, and they stay on until I restart the car, which is when they turn off and the car drives normally again.

Default Lights

That dash looks lit up like a Christmas Tree! I'm guessing the check engine light might be blinking too? The acceleration issues are from the car going into low power mode (limp mode I think it's called?) to protect itself from damage. I've actually had this happen to me in this car once and lots of times on my last car (Saab). Probably the best thing to do is take it to the dealership and have them pull the codes and do any repairs. The check engine light is a catch all, and doesn't offer much by itself.

Giggity.

I think that in cases like this some dealers even recommend that you tow it in just to be on the safe side but calling them ahead in this case is probably the best thing to do. For all we know they might even come to pick it up just to be on the safe side.

Default Update

UPDATE: I went into the dealership, and they informed me a few hours later that this problem has only occurred 3-4 times in the nation, and they have yet to have found a solution. I am quite frustrated as this car has 8000 miles on it, and I am already encountering problems that do not have a solution. I also don't know how many times I'm going to have to keep going back so they can attempt to fix it over and over.

How timely, I must be one of the four people in the nation with this issue too. My dealership has been great but they too have no idea what the issue is. This is the second time it’s been in the shop now. The first time the gas pedal sensor was replaced. Now they have disconnected my after market amps to rule that out even though I’ve had them for over a year with no issue until now. I’ve had my qx30 since last November.

Sofia, what’s the latest on your qx30. I get this error pretty much every day now and hope that Infiniti can figure out what’s going on. I have to constantly turn off/on my car to reset. It’s starting to feel like Microsoft’s Millenium Edition release!

I got my car out of the shop last weekend after they tried to fix the problem by replacing the two batteries (not sure how this was connected to the issue), it worked for about 5 days and the light is now back on. So I have to take it back again when they have an opening. Overall an extremely frustrating for a brand new car, and there seems to be no good solution in sight.

So they ended up disconnecting my after market stereo amps from the battery and that seems to have done the trick. I’m not sure how it’s related and going to reconnect them to test f that was actually the issue.

I can tell you that it does not seem to weird for me that a bad/lose connection makes the car go crazy..... I had an issue where the AWD was inoperative and all the lights on the dash where lit; I could not move the car from P to R or D.
After several visits to the dealer they decided to inspect and re-hook the harness from all the wiring coming from the center console area to the front of the car; they only found a couple of lose connections but it did the trick.....
you can read about it on here I made a thread something like 4wd not working.
