Press and release the SETUP button until the message center displays PRESS RESET TO BEGIN SYSTEM CHECK. Press and release the RESET button until the message center displays HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL. Press and hold the RESET button for 2 seconds and release to reset the oil life to 100%. The message center displays SETUP MENU HOLD RESET. Oil Life Reset - Base Instrument Cluster NOTE: The oil life calculation is set at a maximum of approximately 8,000 km (5,000 miles) or 180 days. Place the ignition in the RUN position with the engine off (KOEO). Press and release the TRIP/RESET button until SETUP MENU HOLD RESET is displayed. Press and hold the TRIP/RESET button until SYSTEM CHECK is displayed. Release the TRIP/RESET button. Press and release the TRIP/RESET button to scroll through the system check menu items until HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL is displayed. Press and hold the TRIP/RESET button until OIL LIFE SET TO 100% is displayed. Release the TRIP/RESET button. The oil life is now reset. Oil Life Start Value - Message Center Cluster you need to do this every time you change the oil, so the computer knows that the oil is new, just changing the oil will not reset the light.
