Post Oil Life Indicator

On my odometer I push the button once and "Oil Life" comes up but it does not saying anything but the words oil life. When I push and hold the button it says "reset" but after that it still says the words oil life. Is a number (mileage) that should be there or am I doing something wrong?

Nope just supposed to say oil life. Kind of pointless in my eyes, but it will display it on the dash when it feels the oil needs changed lol.

OnStar can read the available oil life. Of course, that does not help you much since you have an 04.

IIRC it has a 7,000 reset point on it kind of excessive for a redline especially if you your hard on it. Does anybody know if you can change the setting with HP tuners or is in the hard code on the BCM ?

Go look up other very extensive threads talking about the oil life indicator. It is not simply a millage thing. It takes into account the temperature, how it is driven etc. It typically goes off between 7K and 8K. Some have claimed longer. It is usually about 7.5 K for me. Many on here go by it for changing the oil. Other do every 3K or 4K or 5K. Many past "lively" discussions on this topic. People either belive it works and go by it or say it is crap and change on their own schedule. I believe it works.
