Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
OIL LIFE AT XXX%.”
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.

P0141 is for an open or short in the heater circuit of bank 1(passenger side) rear O2 sensor(the one after the catayltic converter). This code will set when the computer runs the heated oxygen sensor monitor which is basically a program kinda like an anitvirus scan on your home PC.
During testing, the HO2S heaters are checked for opens/shorts and excessive current draw. The code will set when current draw exceeds a maximum calibrated limit(3amps) or falls below a minimum calibrated limit(0.220 amps for NKT sensor and 0.400 amps for bosch sensor) and/or an open or short is detected.
Here are the possible causes for this:
·Short to VPWR in harness or HO2S
·Water in harness connector
·Open VPWR or GND circuit
·Low battery voltage
·Poor electrical connections from PCM to HO2S sensor
Now the reason I ask what the codes were is that may help in determining what is wrong. If the other codes you had were also O2 heater cicuit codes example P0135, P0155, P0161 then you may need to be looking at something other than the O2's themself and maybe more toward a blown fuse no. 24 (15amp) in the under hood fuse box,wiring harness problem on the voltage side since all four share this one or a bad PCM.

you have to have a code reader or you can take to your local parts store(autozone) and they will scan and clear for free

It is not recomended to disconnect the battery and turn the light switch or horn or anything else on in order to clear codes stored in memory because any settings stored in the computer may be lost too.Go to autozone and rent the scanner to do it yourself.It is very easy,just connect the scanner to the connector located below the dashboard, turn the ignition on but not the engine and follow the prompts then when it says: clear codes?hit yes or enter and that is it.This is the safest way to do it.
