Per your description, it sounds as though your DIC's IC has gone to lunch. Remove and verify power and ground is good, if it checks OK, replace the DIC.
Good luck, let me know.

Drivers Information Center (DIC) will not turn on


Keep pushing the buttons first. They get dirty inside. Some times this can help. After that remove it, disassemble it and clean it. This is not guarantied fix though. Replace the DIC.

How do reset the oil change lite?


Display the "OIL LIFE REMAINING" on the driver information center. If your vehicle does not have DIC buttons, the vehicle must be in park to access this display. Press and hold the "SET/RESET" buttons for more than 5 seconds. The oil life will change to 100%.

How do you reset the change engine oil lite


Hello, it depends on whether or not you have the Driver Information Center (DIC). I'll send you both ways.

Without the DIC, turn the key to the ON position and depress the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds, the light will flash, turn the key off.
With the DIC, turn the key to the ON position, press the Fuel Information button repeatedly until OIL LIFE is displayed, press and hold the button with the arrow pointing left until 100% is displayed. Turn the key to off.

The Driver Information Center (DIC) 99 Montana is out


I am assuming that the DIC does not "power-up" at all.

Check your owner's manual to see which fuse powers the DIC. If the fuse is OK, you need to get your hands on a wiring diagram and remove the DIC from the dash so you can check to see if you have a good ground on the ground wire to the DIC. Then check to make sure you have battery voltage to the B+ circuit to the DIC. If the proper voltage and ground are present, you will have to take the DIC to your local dealer for repair. Many GM dealers have an exchange program where you can turn your old DIC in and get a "remanufactured" one on the spot. Others will send your DIC out for repair and call you when it is returned to them.

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...
