Put the key in the ignition, and turn it on (don't crank the engine) while holding out on the small instrument cluster stalk near the clock. When the key is turned on, keep holding this stalk out, and push and release the other one (the one on the right). This should turn the "oil service" message to "----". Turn off the key and then release the left stalk. When you turn the car back on, the message should be gone.

How do i reset the oil life on a 2005 gmc c8500


Most often you need a code reader with a reset function that can connect to the computer jack under the dash and reset factory functions like that. Pain in the tush if you are changing your own oil. Mechanics and dealers have the equipment to do that reset.
