The computer system on your car is pretty sophisticated and is capable of tracking many different services and maintenance requirements. It informs you of what’s due and when through the Maintenance Minder™ on the car. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Turn the key to the on position.

  2. Press the select/reset knob to display the oil life percentage.

  3. The number displayed is the percentage of life left in the engine oil on a scale of 0 to 100%.

  4. Once the oil life reaches 0%, it should be changed and the Maintenance Minder™ reset.
