How to: Resetting the "change oil" light

BORKED

This is for trailvoys without the drivers information center.

1 - turn the key to the run position (do not start)
2 - fully press and release the gas pedal 3 times in 5 seconds
3 - start the engine and verify that the light went out

So simple, but so hard

Edit, I didn't think of reading the tags, WTH was I thinking. The OP has the best tags.

OP, did you shoot this video at Charlisle, or did you still have the window plackard up when you got home and took the video?

Either way, mine usually takes three or four attempts to get it done. Atleast I know I am doing it the right way.

Hey, just a FYI. This information is in your owners manual if you have it. It also tell you that, the vehicle will let you know when its time to change the oil.
