The GM Oil Life System calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a CHANGE OIL message being turned on, reset the system. Always reset the engine oil life to 100% after every oil change. It will not reset itself.

To reset the CHANGE OIL message, do the following:

1. Press reset stem till it Displays "OIL LIFE" on the DIC.(3 times)

2. Press and hold the reset stem. The oil life will change to 100% and a beep will sound.

3. Turn the key to LOCK. If the CHANGE OIL message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Hope This Helps.
