Welcome When you can fill out your User CP. It helps us help you. Resetting the OLM depends on whether you have the DIC or not. The info is in the owners manual or try this Thread: http://forums.trailvoy.com/showthrea...lif e+monitor Remember the SEARCH button is your friend.

With the key in (truck off), and turned to the accessories position so that you see the red battery symbol lit up press the gas pedal to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. On mine I don't hear any beep the light just stops showing up.

I can never get this to work so the light just always comes on @ start up.

we have learned that some Trailvoys will not reset by the foot method after many many many tries... some people can never get it to reset.
It is supposed to flash once reset--- but some dont...
Like mine-- I would try 10-20 times and it would not reset.
Mine has never flashed after reset either....

try this.
follow the procedure....
when you do the 3 footsteps--- do them in the 5 seconds- but do them a little slower... as in push and release slower.
once you do that - dont do anything to the vehicle- leave it as is for maybe 2 minutes...
then turn off key- restart.. and it should be done...

In the time I owned my TB from mile 0 to about 133,000 miles- I had to try the foot method- many many times- 10-20-30 times... sometimes it would not reset... Eventually from trying so many times I resorted to trying door open, door closed, headlights on, off, radio on, off.... all sorts of combinations.. but no go..
until the last time I change the oil...
where I did the 3 footsteps- and then waited a few min... and not removing the key or anything--- I think I unloaded stuff from the back-
when I tried turning off and on again- the light had finally reset on the 1st attemp no more trying over and over....
so try that... I feel your pain.

display the oil life monitor on your DIC
hold down the enter button (the one with the arrow) for approx 5 seconds or until it resets to 100%

Sometime I wish I had a DIC. But you learn to live without it and eventually learn the "drill".
