  • Push on the ’SQUARE’ button on the Instrument cluster until you see the Service Menu
  • Scroll down to “Maintenance” by the directional button and press the ’SQUARE’ button
  • Select “Engine Oil” and press the ’SQUARE’ button
  • Highlight Settings to change the oil change interval
  • Use the Directional button to increase the interval and then press the ’SQUARE’ button
  • Select “Reset” and press ’SQUARE’ button
  • press the Directional button to select ’RESET’ and confirm it by pressing the ’SQUARE’ button

This will reset your engine oil life reminder on your car. For more information, seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
