OIL CHANGE MESSAGE DOES NOT RESET

I recently changed the oil on my truck (2008 F250, gas engine). About three weeks later, the message center displayed "CHANGE OIL SOON". Then a few days later "OIL CHANGE REQUIRED". I'm able to reset this message when i start the engine, but it reapears averytime i start it up. My oil pressure is fine, no leaks, and no red warning light. Any help in reseting this would be appreciated

    2009 F250 Oil Change Warning. Operations Manual says 7500 mile interval. The display warning occurs at 3000 miles. Solved by resetting to 100% and changing oil at the next warning ... two intervals of 3000 miles. Can the warning be set to occur at 6000 intervals??

How do i clear the change engine oil soon message. It's a 2007 silverado.


The "Change Oil" message displayed on your Chevrolet Silverado's gauge cluster is part of the Oil Life Monitoring System, standard on many GM (General Motors) vehicles. The message appears when it's time for an oil-change; the interval is based on your driving habits (for example, it may appear more frequently if you engage in a lot of stop-and-go traffic). Once you change your Chevy's oil, the message will not disappear; the system must be reset. The process is a bit different between Chevy Silverado models.

Change oil light stays on


Using the black push button/rod, you know the one where you can switch to see trip A trip B etc?
keep pushing it til you get to the check engine part then it will cycle through several things. when you find the right place it will read "if new oil hold reset" at this point just hold reset. That is the black push button/rod.

If this don't work, try it again, sometimes it may miss...
