Is there a trip computer with a reset button? Scroll engine info to oil life, press and hold reset.

Turn the key on and press the accelerator hard to the floor 3 times withing 5 seconds of turning the key on. Sometimes hitting it 4 times works better. If it doesn't reset, try again.

Oil Life Monitor Resetting

Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL massage may be displayed before 5?000?Km?(3,000?Miles). Never drive the vehicle more than 12?500?Km?(7,500?Miles) or 12?Months, (whichever occurs first), without an oil change. The engine oil life monitor will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5?000?Km?(3,000?Miles) or sooner if the CHANGE OIL message is displayed.
