2. Press both the accelerator and brake pedals at the same time. 3. Keep both pedals fully pressed.
4. After three seconds, the Service: Oil reset in prog. message will be displayed.
5. After 25 seconds, the Service: Oil reset complete message will be displayed.
6. Release both the accelerator and brake pedals.
7. The Service: Oil reset complete message will no longer be displayed.
8. Rotate the key to the off position. For vehicles with push-button start, press the START/STOP button to turn the vehicle off completely.
Thanks for the tips, I was able to change the oil myself for the first time with my 2012 Titanium. However, no matter what I do I cannot get the oil reset to work? I have the push-button start, but when I hold the button for 2 seconds and press both accelerator and brake the car tries to start???
