Here is how to reset the oil life indicator in your car (below)

Oil Life Reset:

NOTE:
The XXX's in the steps below represent a numeric value and displays the correct number in a percentage. For example, OIL LIFE = XXX% may display OIL LIFE = 45%.
Press and release the SETUP button until SYSTEM CHECK is displayed.
Press and release the SETUP button again to display OIL LIFE = XXX% HOLD RESET = NEW.
Press and hold the RESET button for 2 seconds and release to reset the oil life to 100%. "OIL LIFE SET TO 100%" is displayed.
Oil Life Start Value:

NOTE:
The oil life start value is used to reset the oil life value back to the maximum if the value was previously changed, or to lower the value by 10% increments down to 10%.
Press and release the SETUP button until SYSTEM CHECK is displayed.
Press and release the SETUP button again to display OIL LIFE = XXX% HOLD RESET = NEW.
Press and hold the RESET button for 2 seconds and release to reset the oil life to 100%.
Press and release the RESET button to lower the percentage by 10% (down to 10%) for each button press or return the value to 100%.
