Specifically, it goes on when the ambient temp. is under 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

It’s a snow flake. Means freezing temps outside, possible snow/ice on they roads.

If there is ice on the road put the car in snow mode when driving.

I'd love to. Please advise how to do this on my 2017 G90 AWD.

Here in the South, the best mode for ice or snow is Park. :)

Seriously, the 2017 G90 manual doesn't recommend a driving mode that I could find, but I'd use something non-aggressive like ECO.

so what is the best driving mode to be in with an awd g90 in snow or ice?

Not sure of the 90, but the G80 can go into Snow Mode by holding down the mode button. If softens the pedal for starters.

There is no good mode for ice. Just wait it out. Not worth the risk.

This thread reminds me of a woman that I worked with a few years ago. We both had Infiniti G models. I had a G37S, and she had a G35X. She saw the snowflake symbol on her dash, and asked me "how does the car know it is going to snow?" I still laugh when I think about it.
