The driver information center (DIC) has a lot of information that it can display. At any time, you can select which information you would like the DIC to display. To select the Remaining Oil Life setting, press the Menu button on the turn signal lever until the main Vehicle Information menu is displayed on the DIC. Then, use the arrow buttons on the turn signal lever to scroll to Remaining Oil Life, and press the Set/Clr button. When the DIC is displaying the Remaining Oil Life setting, it will tell you how much useful life your engine has oil has left, written as a percentage (for example, it will say “Remaining OIl Life 80%” if 80% of the oil life remains). When the remaining life of the oil is getting very low, the DIC will display the words Change “Engine Oil Soon”.
