    For your 2005" Silverado,

    On.....How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System:

    The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use.
    Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a.... CHANGE ENGINE OIL...message being turned on, reset the system.To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:

    1. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off.
    2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.
    If the OIL LIFE RESET message flashes for 10 seconds, the system is resetting.
    3. Turn the key to LOCK.

    If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure. If it still does
    not reset, see your dealer for service....

    Also....What you are calling a......OBD indicator.....Is Called a.....DIC......Driver Information Center......Went Asking for Help and/or Advice Include All the information you can about your Truck.........Year/Model....Engine...Trans and so on......This way the other member's will be able to help you out and give you the Best information and/or Advice they can.
