Turn the key to the on position (not start)
with the radio off. Wait 10 seconds. Press the "display" button on the
radio and hold for 10 to 12 seconds. the radio display will light up .
Press "display" and "1" to select functions.
This was not tested or confirmed by me, but my dad has a 2005 Impala and this is what he told me. Let me know if it works or not, and I can try to investigate it more if needed.

I have a 2004 Silverado with the same problem.
After scrollng the internet for months and reading every manual I could get my hands on, I found, for me, a quick and easy way. Open the hood, remove the cover to the Underhood Fuse Block on the drivers side of the vehicle near the battery.
If you have the manual for your truck, go to page 5-126 and locate the fuse that says IPC/DIC, it is a 10 amp fuse.
Pull the fuse and start your truck or a few sceonds.
You will notice that nothing on your insterment will work.
Turn engine off and replace fuse.
After I did this, the message did not come back, and started my truck about 15 times to make sure.
It worked for me....good luck to you.

The torque converter clutch circuit may be at fault. The best way to determine the problem is to have a scanner/computer to read check engine codes.

THIS SHOULD HELP YOU
Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the CHG OIL SOON light flashes two times, the system is resetting. Turn the key to OFF, then start the vehicle. If the CHG OIL SOON light comes back on, the system has not reset, repeat the procedure. Follow this procedure to reset the GM Oil Life System using the DE 100 Series Radio®. Turn the ignition to ACC or ON and the radio off. Press and hold the DISP button on the radio for at least five seconds until SETTINGS is displayed. Press the SEEK up or down arrow to scroll through the main menu. Scroll until OIL LIFE appears on the display. Press the PREV or NEXT button to enter the submenu. RESET will be displayed. Press the DISP button to reset. A chime will be heard to verify the new setting and DONE will be displayed for one second. Once the message has been reset, scroll until EXIT appears on the display. Press the DISP button to exit programming. A chime will be heard to verify the exit.

Its in the manuel but you can turn the key till its on but not started, hold down unlock and lock at the same time for a bit, it will honk and start the process, you have to go to each tire in a certain way thats in the book or on the dash when i tells you and let air outta your tire for about two seconds, you have two mins. to complete each step it tells you so don't rush, once its done it will honk or beep twice telling you it is outta the process. Should be good...if not discount tire resets all that for free. If you have after market wheels or tires you have to switch the valve stems from old ones to new ones cause they contain the sensor needed to reset TPMS(Tire pressure monitoring system)....Discount will do it for $400 bucks but i recommend going somewhere to get them switched out for cheap and then take it to discount and let them reset it for free....saves money. I found this out after putting 26in. rims on my truck.
