Reset after oil change


AnswerEasy get an oil change at a garage and have them erase the code or do the oil change your self and then disconnect the neg battary terminal. Easier AnswerOn the console, where the oil change light is on, scroll through the items until you get to oil life. Once at oil life, hold the reset button and it will say Engin oil new? Press reset again and this should set you oil life back to 100% without needing to disconnect your battery

Complete Answer
1- Turn on the ignition without starting the car
2- You will get warning messages on the display (including the "change oil soon" or "oil change required" message) press reset for each warning till you get the Odometer displayed.
3- press the setup button until "press reset for system check" appears
4- hit the reset button (need to do this fairly quickly, if you end up back at the odometer go back to step 3)
5- the system will scroll through the different things that are wrong that it has detected, you should go to "oil life XX%, Hold Rest New" message first if nothing else more major has been detected. When on this message hold the reset down unit you get the message "if new oil hold reset".
6 - hold the reset down till the message "oil life set to 100%" appears (note have seen different wording in some models)
7 - system should scroll through any remaining messages and then return to the odometer reading
Switch the car off and on and confirm that the message does not reappear. Have seen some instances where will not reset, if so take to your dealer.

After oil change the warning light ( Oil change required ) still ON


You need to reset it manually after you change the oil. If you have the owners manual it will explain how to do this. If you don't have it you get get a PDF version online at ford.com.

2006 Ford Explorer owners manual.

Essentially you need to scroll through the message center until system scan appears. enter it and a message will come up oil life press reset if new or oil life hold reset if new. Follow those instruction and the oil life will eventually change to 100%.

How do i clear the change engine oil soon message. It's a 2007 silverado.


The "Change Oil" message displayed on your Chevrolet Silverado's gauge cluster is part of the Oil Life Monitoring System, standard on many GM (General Motors) vehicles. The message appears when it's time for an oil-change; the interval is based on your driving habits (for example, it may appear more frequently if you engage in a lot of stop-and-go traffic). Once you change your Chevy's oil, the message will not disappear; the system must be reset. The process is a bit different between Chevy Silverado models.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
    2007 to 2010 Chevrolet Silverado

  2. Step 2 Press the second button from the top on your information center (next to the steering column, car symbol) until "Oil Life" displays on your odometer cluster.
  3. Step 3 Press and hold the "Reset" button on your information center (check mark symbol) until the "Oil Life" display changes to 100 percent.
  4. Step 4 Turn your ignition to position "A" (Lock/Off).
  5. 2002 to 2006 Chevrolet Silverado
  6. Step 1 Insert your key into the ignition, and turn it to position "A" (Run/On) without cranking the engine.
  7. Step 2 Depress the gas pedal three times within five seconds. The "Change Oil" message will begin to flash.
  8. Step 3 Turn the ignition to position "A" (Lock/Off) once the light stops flashing (about 10 seconds).
