Default Resetting the Change Oil message

My 03 Silverado LS does not have a "Driver Information Center". My owner's manual says to reset the change oil message by pressing and holding the (Fuel Information) "select" button when the message shows. Since I don't have any of the DIC buttons, does anyone know how to reset the system without one ?

Default RE: Resetting the Change Oil message

From my 2005 Silverado manual:

The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change
your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use.
Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can
calculate when the next oil change is required. If a
situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a
CHANGE ENGINE OIL message being turned on, reset
the system.
To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:
1. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off.
2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three
times within five seconds.
If the OIL LIFE RESET message flashes for
10 seconds, the system is resetting.
3. Turn the key to LOCK.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes back on
when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system
has not reset. Repeat the procedure. If it still does
not reset, see your dealer for service.



Hope this works for your 03

Three presses of the pedal did it. Thanks for the help. This is a great forum. Best wishes to you all. John
