Engine Oil Life System

The engine oil life system calculates engine oil life based on vehicle use and displays the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message when it is time to change the engine oil and filter. The oil life system should be reset to 100% only following an oil change.

3. Press the SET/CLR button to reset the oil life at 100%.
4. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF. See Engine Oil Life System .
