SOURCE: Need to reset oil life

it depends........ if you have controls on the steering wheel or not. If you do, then go through the menu until you see OIL LIFE then hold in the reset button (looks like a backwards "L" with an arrow on it). Hold the reset button in until it reads OIL LIFE RESET or OIL LIFE 100%. If you don't have controls on the steering wheel, turn key on (engine off) and depress the gas pedal to the floor 3 times, now turn key off. crank engine up and see that it has reset, if not try it again.

Notes ENGINE OIL LIFE SYSTEM

HOW TO RESET THE ENGINE OIL LIFE SYSTEM
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" message being turned on, reset the system.

  1. With the ignition key in "RUN" but the engine off, repeatedly push the trip/reset button until "OIL" is displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  2. Once "OIL" is displayed, push and hold the trip/reset button for five seconds. The number will disappear and be replaced by 100 (indicating 100% oil life remaining).
  3. Turn the key to "OFF". If the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
If this does not work you may have a problem with your instrument cluster.
