    Default Change Oil Light

    How do I reset the change oil light? I recently changed my oil myself but the info center keeps telling me to and it is annoying. Will just unhooking the battery reset it? I don't want to do this just because then I have to go and reset all my stations

    Okay, first you need to turn the key to run (second detent) with the ignition off. Second press the gas pedal to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. Then the Change Engine Oil light should flash for 5 sec. And walla, your radio stations are all there!

    P.S. Don't they make this process sound like some kind of practical joke when it's described in words?!?!

    that'll do it, you'd be amazed at how hard it was to couch some people thru it when i worked at the local drive thru oil change.
