2004 Cadillac XLR: Resetting the Engine Oil Life Monitor

Below is the procedure for resetting the engine oil life monitor on the 2004 Cadillac XLR:

1. Press the up or down arrow to scroll the DIC to show OIL LIFE.

2. Once the XXX% ENGINE OIL LIFE menu item is highlighted, press and hold the RESET button until the percentage shows 100%. Repeat the steps if the percentage does not return to 100.

3. Turn the key to OFF.

If the Change Oil Now message comes back when you start the vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
