How do I use the oil life reset feature?

The oil life tells you, in a percentage, how much life your engine oil has remaining. Whenever the oil is changed, this feature should be reset. If you forget to reset the feature, you can estimate the percentage and set the feature to that percentage. To adjust the oil life reset, follow these steps 1. Press the Up/Down buttons on the steering wheel until Settings is displayed on the instrument panel, then press the OK button. 2. Press the Up/Down buttons until Convenience is displayed, then press the OK button. 3. Press the Up/Down buttons until Oil Life Reset is displayed, then press the OK button. 4. Select an oil life percentage between 10% and 100%. Choose 100% if the oil was just changed.
