Hi, the oil light/diagram (not change oil indicator) flashed this past weekend. It did so for about 10 minutes and went off. Had the oil changed less than a month ago so not sure what the problem is. Looked for the manual and can't locate it. Any help would be appreciated.

If it is running rough & no check engine light on then the first thing I would to is tune it up. If you have a check engine light then pay someone to diagnosis it & go from there. Usually when the light comes on there is a more promenient issue; that is WHY the light continues to flash.
you need to get a new ign. lock cylinder and chip key. Or you can get a lock cylinder and copy your old key with a regular key no chip. Take new cylinder, put old chip key in it. Plug into harness at the bottom of steering column just behind the dash, fine orange wire from existing one in the column. Hide lock cylinder under dash and start car with copy of old key.

[quote] The "Change
Oil" indicator is reset by using a sequence of Driver Information Center
(DIC) key presses as follows:
1. Turn ignition "ON", but do not start engine. (ALDL pin
"G" should NOT be grounded.)
2. Press the "ENG/MET" button and release, then, within 5 seconds,
press it again.
3. Within 5 seconds of Step 2, press and hold the "GAUGES" button.
While the button is held, the "Change Oil" indicator will flash.
4. Continue holding the "GAUGES" button until the "Change
Oil" indicator stops flashing and goes out, indicating successful
completion of the reset cycle. This should take about 10 seconds.
If it does not successfully reset, turn ignition "OFF" and repeat
the procedure from Step 1.
On a 2008, thurn the key to the ACC position. Hold down the reset button for about 10sec on the dash until the whole display starts flashing.
When the whole display is flashing, hold down the reset button again for about 10sec. the OIL LIFE will go to 100%.
to reset the the light , turn ignition switch to off position , press and hold the select/reset trip button , while holding the button turn ignition switch to the on position , with the engine off , continue to hold the reset button for about 10 seconds until indicator resets , your done. you will see like 5 dashs blink then 4 then 3 then 2 then 1 then all flash . problem solved .
