    I need to re-set my oil change indicator. I lost my ownwers manual.

    I had the same problem with the oil change light indicator. I also tried turning the key on to RUN and pressing the accelerator 3 times within 5 seconds. It did not work. I was led to this website and read all your blogs on this situation and thank you all for leading me to getting the oil change light indicator back to 100%.

    I had the same problem with the oil change light indicator and read all your blogs on the situation and it worked for me also. Thank you.

    put key in run position without starting engine and then select "oil life" display. Now hold the check mark button down until it shows 100% life.

    This sometimes works within 2-3 seconds. Yesterday it took me 5-6 tries before it worked.

Mine works by pressing the check button twice, then holding it down on the third time.

I found the solution but I don't remember it:-)) the truth is that I solved the problem out of frustration. As a matter of fact, and after I tried all I read on the Internet, I got frustrated to the point where I started stepping on the accelerator many times while pushing the "learn" check mark (while in the run position with engine off). All of a sudden the 100% showed up. Bottom line: It is feasible, just keep playing with it.

In order to reset the oil life monitor on the 07 XL7, first set the display on the dash to display the oil life monitor and turn the key to the off position, then turn the key to run (don't start), press the accelerator 3 times within 5 seconds, then press and hold the reset (check mark key) until the display resets to 100%,

I had the same problem and did what the book says, but it didn't work. I looked online and it said to do the same thing. I had also read something about pressing and holding the check mark button, so after pressing the accelerator 3 times, I held this button and it reset.

Posted on Nov 19, 2008

Go to the oil life screen on the message center. Hold down the check mark button on your center console for about 1 minute. It may be longer. This worked for me after I had the same problem.

I have a suzuki grand vitara 2 liters engine ddis euro 5 engine 2011 model there are no suzuki dealers in tunisia can i reset the millage my self after i changed engine oil


ok the 2liter. Direct Diesel Injection system (in English )
you lost the operators guide?
that be real bad that..... ouch.
try googling for that book.
or googing for the FSM

you might luck out and all 2011 suz, this reset works.
as stated in the op guide.

I see posts that say , only Suzuki scan tool can reset DDIS.

many cars, GM? you fiddle the key, throttle and trip reset to clear this, but each maker does it different and DDIS , my be different
that petrol gas engines, same year, same car.

here are some popular SUZUK (general) answers
according to the manual:

you have to have the engine off... turn the key to the "ACC" position which is the notch that allows power but doesn't turn the engine... then press the gas pedal fully THREE times within FIVE seconds...

however it doesn't always seem to work



one more post

Sit in the driver's seat of the XL7. Insert the ignitionicon1.png key and turn it to "RUN." Do not start the engine.


  • 2 Press and release the gas pedal three times within five seconds. Watch for the engine oilicon1.png light to flash, indicating that the system is reset.

  • 3
    Turn the key to "OFF" and remove it from the ignition.

    This is incorrect and will not work.

    1. Turn the key to the "ACC" position which is the notch that allows power but doesn't turn the engine.
    2. The display will read change engine oil soon - hit the display button(i) and the display will read 0% oil life.
    3. Hit reset button (the check mark button) for 5 seconds and the display will change to 100 % oil life.
    4. It may not work the 1st,2nd,3rd .... attempt , but will work eventually.


    To Fix:
    go to the oil indicator by pressing the second button. Hold on the tick mark button for 3 seconds. This will reset the remaining percentage to 100%.

    at the last resort, pulling battery neg. lug.
    this may do it, im not sure, but will also drop radio settings.,etc.

    Changing the oil life from 0% to 100%...can't seem to fix... any suggestions?


    What do you mean? changing the oil life.You change your oil by removing the plug on the bottom of the engine,let it all come out, drain.Replace the plug,then refill through the top of the engine.Fill with the right amount of fluid.
