Try going into the on board personalization settings. You may be able to reset there. If you look in the manual, it will explain all of the different functions.

I JUST CHANGED THE OIL ON MY 2006 COBALT AND THE READ OUT STILL SHOWS 25% ,MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I RESET THIS .THANKS


Try this and if it does not work let me know.

1. Turn the ignition key to the "Run" position but do not start the engine.

2. Press the display button until the display reads "Oil Life"

3. Press the accelerator (gas) pedal all the way down and all the way back up 3 times within 5 seconds.

4. The oil life index should reset to 100 or the display will read "Oil Life Index Resetting", and when completed then turn off the ignition.

Start the vehicle and verify that the oil life has been reset, and if it did not reset then repeat the procedure, because sometimes it will take more than one try to clear and reset the oil life index.


If that does not work then try this procedure...


1. Press the fuel information button until ENGINE OIL LIFE appears on the Driver Information Center (DIC).

2. Press and hold the select button.

3. The engine oil life percentage will return to 100.

4. Turn the key to OFF.

5. 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.
