How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Any time the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change the oil prior to a CHANGE ENGINE OIL message being turned on, reset the system.
To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:

  1. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off.
  2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.
  3. If the OIL LIFE RESET message displays for 10 seconds, the system is resetting.
  4. Turn the ignition key to LOCK.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure. If it still does not reset, see your dealer for service.

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.

I have a 2005 Ford Five Hundred and the ''wrench'' warning light came on. It is a AWD. What does it mean and what could the probable cause be?


It simply means that its time for routing service and maintenance on your car. This will normally be reset when you take it in for an oil change. 1. Ford has issued a Special Service Message (SSM), stating that the owner's manual procedure is incorrect, and giving a revised procedure. The following is the text of the SSM:

18562 2005 FREESTYLE/FIVE HUNDRED/MONTEGO - OIL LIFE RESET PROCEDURE
THE 2005 FREESTYLE, FIVE HUNDRED, AND MONTEGO VEHICLE OWNER'S GUIDE OIL LIFE RESET PROCEDURE IS INCORRECT. TO RESET OIL LIFE ON VEHICLES WITHOUT MESSAGE CENTER, USE THE TRIP/RESET BUTTON TO TOGGLE THE ODOMETER DISPLAY TO 'OIL LIFE XX%'. THEN PRESS AND HOLD THE BUTTON FOR 10 SECONDS TO RESET TO 100%. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WILL BEEP WHEN THE OIL LIFE IS RESET.
FOR VEHICLES WITH A MESSAGE CENTER, PRESS 'SETUP' TO DISPLAY 'PRESS RESET FOR SYS CHECK'. PRESS AND RELEASE 'RESET' TO START SYSTEM CHECK. WHILE 'OIL LIFE XX%' IS DISPLAYED, PRESS AND HOLD 'RESET' UNTIL 'IF NEW OIL HOLD RESET' IS DISPLAYED, THEN RELEASE. PRESS AND HOLD 'RESET' AGAIN UNTIL 'OIL LIFE SET TO 100%' IS DISPLAYED. THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WILL BEEP WHEN THE OIL LIFE IS RESET.

Need to reset oil life indicator on 2005 GMC Yukon Denali after an oil change...How do I do that please??..THANKS!


it depends........ if you have controls on the steering wheel or not. If you do, then go through the menu until you see OIL LIFE then hold in the reset button (looks like a backwards "L" with an arrow on it). Hold the reset button in until it reads OIL LIFE RESET or OIL LIFE 100%. If you don't have controls on the steering wheel, turn key on (engine off) and depress the gas pedal to the floor 3 times, now turn key off. crank engine up and see that it has reset, if not try it again.

How Do I Reset oil Indicator 2005 Chevy Tahoe


Turn the ignition key to the RUN position. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON light flashes 2 times, the system is reset. However, if the light comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, the system did not reset. Repeat the procedure if the system does not reset.
This is for a 2001, I couldn't find info for a 2005, also said that a phone call to the dealer should answer it over the fone.

Pontiac montana 2005 how do you reset the change oil light.


Pontiac Montana, 2005
With the ignition key in RUN but engine off, repeatedly push the trip reset button until OIL is displayed on the driver info center. Once OIL is displayed, push and hold the reset button for five seconds. The number will disappear and be replaced by 100% of oil life remaining. The percentage will return to 100 and oil life indicator will be reset. Repeat steps if not reset to 100.
Good luck
