    Default Oil Life Monitor Reset

    All, how do you reset the oil life monitor? I have been looking but can't find out how to do it. I change my own fluids so I don't go to the dealer. Thanks!!

    Turn the key to RUN then mash the gas to the floor 3 or 5 times quickly, I can't remember exactly howmany times. I just do 5 and it works.

    sc99 is close. 3 full pedals in under 5 seconds. you dont have to speed race it, just make sure the pedal travels all the way to the floor. may have to move the floormat out of the way

    Thanks all. I finally found it on page 34 of the General Tech questions. I thought originally it was the brake but obviously that did not work. I will take care of it this weekend when I change the oil. Thanks again!!
