The 89% oil life should be reset manually. It doesn't affect the actual life of the oil.

What does it mean when the oil life read 000000 oil life %

you lost your operaturs guide, huh.
why not get one and read it.?
so you dont need to post ,for every light that blinks.

it means you forgot to do the service,
or you for got to reset it after service, done.
the PCM uses math to guess at oil change's is mostly just EPA BS.
it just a lamp to glow and keep the poor humans busy.
most guys just ignore it and do the service when needed.
like we did for 100 years. before this bs.

Does 50 percent oil life means half low or need oil change

Some vehicles have a reading that starts at 100% and Counts down to ZERO. If your gauge is telling you that you are at 50% life, then you have 1,500 to 2,500 miles left before your engine oil change. This is ONLY as good as the last time you changed your Oil and someone RESET IT...

If it was not reset, follow the Tag on your Windshield

What does the percentage mean regarding my oil

oil life. 100% means you just changed oil. 0% means the oil is worn. the computer tells you when to change oil based on hours run speed acceleration and engine temp. Id change mine when it says 10% because at 0% the oil is toast. when you change the oil you need to reset the cluster so it reads 100% most lube places do this for you. if not read the manual it tells you how to reset

1998 Buick Park Ave., Check engine light is on, the computer displays Oil Change

The check engine light and the oil change indicator message are more than likely not related. You can toggle through the functions and get the oil life % to display then push the reset and hold it for a few seconds and it will reset the oil life indicator message. It should read oil life 100% after reset. (I would change the oil and filter if you have not already done so.)

The check engine light means you are setting an engine code, if it stays on, it is a hard code, if it is intermittant it is a soft code. Have it checked with a scan tool -- plug into your a.l.d.l. connector below the dash on the drivers side and read the code. Autozone and other places will do this for free.

It's reading in spanish vida de aceite 1%

That means "Oil Life 1%" the GM oil life monitering system is telling you to get an oil and filter change.

Its showing 0% oil life on my 06 impala what does that mean?

It means it's time to get the oil changed. It should be at 100% after it is changed and it will decrease over the mileage you drive to let you know it's getting close to change.

Reset oil life display after oil change?

How do I reset the Engine Oil life monitor and how does it work? TO reset To reset the Engine Oil Life monitor do the following:
Reset Oil life in NAV/DIC by (with car running) going to INFO>Oil Life>RESET
Press and HOLD until XXX turns to 100%
How does it work? The oil life monitor is a pretty sophisticated algorithm.

GM "The GM Oil Life System will automatically adjust the oil change interval based on engine characteristics, driving habits and the climate in which the vehicle is operated."
