Resetting The Oil Life Indicator on a Chevrolet Camaro

This article is visible to only you.

If you changed the oil in your 5th Generation Camaro according to when the oil life alert light came on your dash, you will need to reset it back to 100% after you have finished your oil change. There are 2 methods to resetting the oil life indicator depending on if your Camaro comes equipped with a Driver Information Center (DIC) or not. For Camaros with the DIC, either method can be used.

Vehicles with Driver Information Center (DIC)


Turn the key to IGNITION ON (no engine start).


Press the option button on the DIC until ENGINE OIL MONITOR appears on the DIC screen.


Press the set/reset button to reset the system. The next screen indicates that the CHANGE OIL SOON message has been reset. If the vehicle has the uplevel DIC, when the gauges button is pressed and the OIL LIFE REMAINING mode appears, it should read 100 percent OIL LIFE REMAINING.


Turn the key to OFF.

Vehicles without DIC


Turn the key to IGNITION ON (no engine start).


Fully press and release the accelerator pedal slowly three times within five seconds.


Turn the key to OFF, then start the vehicle.


If the light or message comes back on when you start the vehicle, the OIL LIFE SYSTEM has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
