Hello, I can’t seem to reset the Engine Oil Life System. I changed both the oil and oil filter. I tried to reset the system like it said to do in the owner’s manual, but every time I start the car the Code 82 keeps coming up on the DIC display. I have done some Google internet searches and did what they said to do, but nothing works. I even called the Dealer where we brought the car and asked them what to do. I was told that we would just have to bring the car in and let them look at it. There price would be from $100.00 and up to check it out. Vehicle listed above has A/C.
Do you
have the same problem?

Couple questions on this. First can you get a video of how you are going through this reset process?

You need to be in the vehicle with the door closed, key in the on position but the engine off.

Press the menu three times or until you get to the oil life screen. Then you need to hold the set/clear button until it goes to 100%. This may take a few seconds but if it does not go to 100% then it is not reset, and you need to hold the button until it does.

If you are holding the button for an extended period and it is not resetting, then we may have an issue with the button.

Please see the steps from the manual below. Just make sure they are the same that was in your owner's manual.

If none of this works, then let's get a video just to see if that will help identify the issue.

Thanks

Sorry for getting back to you so late. I could not get the Code 82 reset no matter what I did. I did find a way to reset it. I was told by a friend to disconnect the car battery and leave it for about an hour. It worked, the Code 82 on my car listed above is gone. I thank you for your help.

Haha. Well, I would say someone is a mind reader as that is where we were going next once we confirmed that you were performing it correctly, but I am glad your friend suggested it as well.

More than likely the cluster was just stuck in a loop, and you actually did reset the counter, but the display was not responding. Do a reset on it by disconnecting the battery is just like when they say to fix your computer, shut it off and restart it. Just needs a reboot.

Thanks for coming back to update us. That info will surely help others.
