The 'oil life' timer is just that - A timer. All it does is count-down the time to the next oil change based on the factory maintenance schedule. If you have a way to keep track of your oil change intervals, like the little sticker in the corner of the windshield, & it works for you, disregard the oil life thing completely.

Jasper, she just had the oil changed, learn to read.

The shop or mechanic that changed the oil forgot to reset the monitor.

From Alldata

How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System



Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine OFF.
Press the INFO and RESET buttons on the Driver Information Center (DIC) at the same time to enter the personalization menu.
Press the INFO button to scroll through the available personalization menu modes until the DIC display shows OIL-LIFE RESET.
Press and hold the reset button until the DIC display shows ACKNOWLEDGED. This will tell you the system has been reset.
Turn the key to LOCK.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes back on when you start the vehicle, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Alternate Method



Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off.
Fully press the release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. Several beeps sound. This confirms the oil life system has been reset.
If the CHANGE/OIL message comes back on when you start the engine, the engine oil life system has not been reset. Repeat the procedure.
