SOURCE: oil filter location?
the oil filter is on top of the engine bay, it is under a plastic screw on cover towards the drivers side front of the engine next to the intake manifold, if there is a cover on the engine you might need to take it off to see it, the filter clips on to the back plastic screw on cover. it requires a large socket size to remove.

You may have to go to the dealership and get the Service Bulletin on this one. Sometimes the owner's manual is NOT correct. You may see what the Dealership charges to reprogram BUT... I'd bet it is at least $75. This is USUALLY a simple task. Maybe try it again a couple of times before you head to the Dealership. "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again". I've had to do this 4-5 times before it would reprogram on similar cars.... DOUBLE CHECK the battery in the remote for voltage. You might want to replace it anyway. That way you won't have to go thru this when the battery in the remote dies... In a 6 year old car, it's about at the end of its life cycle.

If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck

SOURCE: reset change oil light
hello, here is the instructions on how to reset the light
When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will come on. Change the engine oil as soon as possible within the next 600 miles (1000 km). It is possible that, if driving under the best conditions, the oil life may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, the engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset.
If the system is ever reset accidentally, change the engine oil at 3000 miles (5000 km) since last oil change.
To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:
