    probably needs to be reset

    on my camaro i just turn the key to the ON position and hold down the trip meter button for about 15 seconds until the light blinks and goes out for another how ever many thousand miles. i hope this helps.

    You can either hold down the trip odo button or do the 'key on,press gas pedal down 3 times within 5 seconds' methods,both work. The system keeps track of every revolution of the engine and tracks what the engine temperature was at those revolutions and gives an oil change interval based on that. It's a pretty good system IMHO.
