    Few issues have troubled technicians more than the infamous “Change oil soon light.” We have even had quick lube shops send customers to me at the dealership to shut off this light.
    Yes, the engineer that designed this system most certainly had flunked out of the “User Friendly” semester of college. The most common problem is between step 1 and 2 of the owner’s manual. The natural tendency is that when we scroll through the menu to the “oil life XX%” mode, we lift our finger. This is where most go wrong. Once the “oil life XX%” comes up on the menu, do NOT lift from depressing the button- just hold for 5 seconds until the “Reset for new oil life” comes up. Again, do not lift your finger.

    I don't know how to reset the oil change sensor and can not find an answer in the owner's manual.
