Change oil to reset?

robarJanuary 26, 2014

On my 2013 Chevy Silverado.....will the change oil warning reset itself after the oil is changed or does it have to be reset at the dealership where I purchased the truck? How can I reset this myself?

Include the quotation marks.

If you are permitted to reset this light, there may be instructions in your owner's manual. The general consensus of opinion I found with a google search is this:

Turn the ignition switch to run (but do not start the engine). Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. Insure there is nothing to interfere with a full stroke of the pedal.

From page 1-32 of the Owners Manual

Resetting the Oil Life System
To reset the Engine Oil Life System
on most vehicles:
on the DIC. If the vehicle does
not have DIC buttons, the
vehicle must be in P (Park) to
access this display.
2. Press and hold the SET/RESET
button on the DIC, or the trip
odometer reset stem if the
vehicle does not have DIC
buttons, for more than
five seconds. The oil life will
change to 100%.
On all vehicles, the Engine Oil Life
System can be reset as follows:
1. Turn the ignition to ON/RUN with
the engine off.
2. Fully press the accelerator pedal
slowly three times within
five seconds.
on the DIC. If the display shows
100%, the system is reset.

Our Saturn vue had a reset button in fuse box under hood. Did engineers think the oil techs would like that? I know the Saturn brand was a "world" car and used "out of he box" ideas, but please.
