Default If I change oil and filters, how do I re-set the computer ?

You folks who change your own engine oil and filter, and fuel filters: how do you re-set the computer so it starts over again on the % of life remaining ?

It depends on the year of the truck.



You can also find that in the owners manual.


Fill out your signature so we know what you are working on.

OK, thank you, it's a 2012 Silverado 2500. And I'll try to locate the owners manual.

It's in the DIC menu on the dash the owner's manual will tell you exactly what to do it's pretty easy.

It should reset it when you pull the drain plug, I’d take it in to get looked at.

On a 2012, locate the stack of dic buttons (left or right of the instrument cluster depending on trim level).
Press the button on the top (it looks like highway lines) until the "engine oil life" is on the dic screen. Once "engine oil life" is on the screen, press and hold the checkmark button (bottom button in the stack). The "engine oil life" will flash and reset to read " Engine Oil Life 100%".
