    Road Trip Sucess

    Hello all,
    Just got back from a 2700 mile road trip from Chicago to Tennessee to SC and back. The truck performed flawlessly. I was able to get upwards of 16 MPG on the highway which is good enough for me. It is now time for an oil change. I will be getting it changed pretty soon here. I remember reading about how to reset the oil life meter to 100% but I can't find the thread. Could someone please tell me how to do it. Thanks
    Could some please

    My 04 can be reset with the controls, simply scroll to your oil reading % and when it is on your DIC hold down the arrow button (bottom right side of steering wheel) for like 5 seconds and it rests to 100%. This is only way I have ever reset mine....
