If you don't have the owners manual, you might consider downloading it.

Engine Oil Change Indicator System
Oil Change Due


Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change
indicator system. The “Oil Change Due” message will
flash in the EVIC display for approximately 10 seconds
after a single chime has sounded, to indicate the next
scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change
indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the
engine oil change interval may fluctuate, dependent
upon your personal driving style.
Unless reset, this message will continue to display each
time you turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN
position or cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position if
equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go. To turn off the
message temporarily, press and release the MENU button.
To reset the oil change indicator system (after
performing the scheduled maintenance) refer to the following
procedure.

Vehicles Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go
1. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button and cycle the ignition to the ON/
RUN position (Do not start the engine.)
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within 10 seconds.
3. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button once to return the ignition to the
OFF/LOCK position.

Vehicles Not Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position (Do
not start the engine.)
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.
NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you
start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not
reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.

I just had my oil changed. I looked at the oil life indicator on my way back to work and it said it was just reset 3 miles ago where before it said 3200 miles ago, but it still reads 68%. Will it return to 100% or do I need to redo the reset? I did an early oil change at 3200 since I was at the dealer getting the transmission flash done and wanted to switch to synthetic.

It's in the evic with the other engine related gauges, oil temp, voltage, tran temp, tire pressure, etc. Just scroll through and you'll find it. The steps to reset it are above. Press start/stop button to ON, press accelerator down 3 times slowly in 10 seconds, start/stop button to OFF.
