How do I reset the oil change indicator?
 
Our GC had an oil change last week and the dealer didn't reset the "Oil Change Due" indicator in the center dash screen. They're an hour away and I'd hate to have to drive all the way over there just to have them reset the indicator.

Does anyone know how to reset the oil change due indicator?

Thanks for the quick reply. Not sure what you meant, so I tried a couple of things:

- Pressed the break pedal before pushing the ignition button to start the car. Then pressed the accelerator three times within 10 seconds. It didn't work.

- Pushed the ignition button without pressing the break pedal, which activated accessory power. Then pressed the accelerator three times within 10 seconds. That didn't work either.

What am I doing wrong?

Check your manual. Iirc you turn on ignition then push gas pedal to the floor three times pretty quickly then turn off ignition

That was it! I wasn't pushing the gas pedal all the way down to the floor.

I didn't think of checking the manual as manufacturers rarely publish information on resetting service indicators. Thanks for the info guys!
