How the hell do I reset the oil life monitor?!?! I followed the instructions to reset in the Owners manual: Turn the key to on; depress the gass pedal slowly twice in five seconds; turn off. Well, it hasn't worked. I tried the Acc setting, the on setting, I even started the car and had it running and tried it. None of it worked. I pusehd the pedal once, twice, three, four, five, all the way to 8 times, part throttle, full throttle, fast, slow...no good.

Am I missing something here? Do I need to leave the hood up, oil cap off, while in motion, with a stick of TNT on July 4th during a blizzard in Jamica, what?!

Obviously this is begining to frustrate me, as it is something that should be so simple yet is seemingly so complicated...:confused: :banghead:

Yup, tree times. Same for my '06 Impala SS. However, the manual I believe is correct in the SS's. I was pretty annoyed on my first oil change.

You have to do it pretty quick and sometimes it takes a couple of tries. You'll get it though. It's like entering a cheat code for a video game.

Uhm..., Allow me to quote myself: "I pusehd the pedal once, twice, three, four, five, all the way to 8 times"
Three times IS the charm. Try it again, you'll see...

It will also reset if you push the pedal to the floor in your driveway until white smoke comes out your tail pipes and the motor stops running.
