3 accelerator pumps with key on didn't work for me. Do I have to have message board on certain display or something?
Don't want to take back to dealer for just this if its simple. Alos they changed the oild and didn't reset it like the dummies they have been. They also won't re-cal. my speedo for 19.5" tires.

    Oil Change Indicator - Reset
    HERE IS THE PROCEDURE: READ CLOSLY ...PEHAPS YOU MISSED A STEP.

    The vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change indicator system. The "Oil Change Required" message flashes in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) display for approximately ten 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 depending 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. To turn off the message temporarily, press and release the Menu button. To reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled maintenance) perform the following procedure:

    Turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position. Do not start the engine.
    Fully press the accelerator pedal slowly three times within ten seconds.
    Turn the ignition switch to the "LOCK" position.
    Note: If the indicator message illuminates when you start the engine, the oil change indicator system did not reset. If necessary, repeat these steps.
