How do I reset the Remaining Oil Life setting?

The Remaining Oil Life setting in the driver information center (DIC) lets you know how much life remains in your car’s oil. This approximation is based on the amount of miles you have driven since your last oil change. Because of this, the Remaining Oil Life setting needs to be reset every time your oil is changed. To reset the Remaining Oil Life setting, simply press the Set/Clr button on the turn signal lever when the DIC is displaying the Remaining Oil Life setting.
