Question about 2004 Cadillac Escalade
With the oil life on the screen, press and hold the "return" key, the one with the arrow on it. Same one that resets the average miles per gallon. It's in the lower right of the steering wheel.
Keep holding it. It takes a few seconds, but then the 55% number (or whatever) will turn into "XXX", and sit there.
Some things might start dinging.... the wrench symbol might light up on the dash... I haven't really payed super close attention, but a lot seems to be happening on the dash while this happens. I'm usually just watching the XXX number, waiting for it to be 100...
As you keep holding that button, eventually the oil life number will become "100%" again... Now you can let go of the button.
And it's reset!

Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator flashes two times, the system is resetting. Turn the key off after the the light has finished flashing, then start the vehicle. If the CHANGE OIL SOON indictor comes back on, the engine oil life monitor has not reset. Repeat the procedure again. If the vehicle is equipped with the U20 option code, the vehicle as an oil life low indicator. The oil life low indicator shows an estimate of the oil's remaining useful life. When the oil life index is less than 10 percent, the display will show OIL LIFE LOW. To reset the oil life monitor, press and hold the MODE button until the light appears next to OIL LIFE. Press and hold the trip RESET button until the oil life percentage changes to 99 percent.
