IF it is in the radio and not a seperate computer then you do the following: Go into the vehicle settings with the radio controls. With the key turned to ACC, hold DISP on the radio for about 6 seconds and it should go into settings mode. Press DISP until you see oil life in all caps, then use Prev. & Next to scroll to reset oil life mon., then push DISP again. you should here a beep and the display should read Done. Scroll to Exit and press DISP again.

Transmission oil light reset on 2012 international 4300

This is part of the new Allison Prognostics. It's very similar to the oil life monitor on the new cars.

The way to clear the filter light after the filter is changed is to:

Turn the ignition on, but do not start the truck

Next move the shift selector in this sequence, N-D-N-D-N-R-N, do not stop the sequence for more than 3 seconds once you start.

This should turn off the filter light.

2001 chevy 2500 hd 4x2 allison trans seems to loose pressure after coming to a stop, have to rev engine for a few seconds before it pulls again, whats up with that? 88800 miles

I would start
by changing both trans filters and fluid, makesure you put dex VI in trans then if still having problems take to someone with a Tech 2 scanner and have them reset the trans adapts and try that, what it does is resets trans to factory (new) mode and then as you drive the truck it will adjust to your driving habits and shift points, but loosing pressure makes me think one of your filters is partially plugged...there is a spin on cartridge and the internal one in pan, change em both..good luck

2006 chevy trail inline 6. Change engine oil light came on all of sudden. I changed the oil just 2000 miles ago. What does it mean? How do I reset ?

{: ) It could be that it was not reset properly and successfully when you last changed your oil. A scan tool can reset it better. Also, double check for oil level and leaks.

Reset oil change light 2004 c6500 with cat engine Manuel trans.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Most all GM vehicles reset the "change oil light" in one of 2 ways:

See this link because it does the best to describe the steps and would rather the author got the credit writing the article:

If this does NOT work for you respond here and I will dig deeper noting you have the CAT engine. It is in the owners manual but if you are not the original owner you may not have the manual.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a 2003 2500hd with 8.1 motor and Allison auto trans.can you tell me what is the correct type of trans. Filter and oil (how many quarts) needed to change it all.

14.8 pints according to my online resources.
2 pints per quart means it's 7.4 Quarts total.
That's a nice transmission and engine combination.

But, I've been told by my local Quality Transmission shop, that flushing and filling is better than changing the filter and oil. And, although they work on transmissions, they leave it up to another garage to do that kind of work, because they're too busy with rebuilding transmissions.

Every 30,000 mi. the transmission should be flushed and filled with new transmission fluid, I've been told.

How do i reset the oil life on a 2005 gmc c8500

Most often you need a code reader with a reset function that can connect to the computer jack under the dash and reset factory functions like that. Pain in the tush if you are changing your own oil. Mechanics and dealers have the equipment to do that reset.
