Oil Life Change Indicator

Got a problem and need some help!!! Shame on me but I've been neglecting my baby (TB) and was a couple of months overdue on my oil change, my Oil Life indicator was showing 23%. So I go through the whole Jiffy Lube ordeal and get a oil change but after, noticed my Oil Life indicator is still at 23%. Normally it increases to 100% after the oil change, whats the problem? Need advice....thanks!!!

just needs to be reset. Think you go to the oil gauge and hold enter.

same thing happened to me. if you dont have DIC you can manually reset it. this is what i did.

just turn the key to on position(not start) then step on the gas pedal 3x. turn to off then when you start it its back to 100%.

in addition to the above mentioned steps ...when you hit the pedal 3 X it needs to be inside a span of 5 seconds and you must let the oil light flash and stop flashing before turning the key to off then after that you can fire it up and should be reset...

if you were at 23% and had your oil changed- I dont consider that oil change overdue. Oil still had life left in it.
If you had the oil changed in the last 300-500 miles or so- simply reset it and forget about it. and if you want change the oil next time the oil light comes on.
but all is fine if it was at 23%
