It just flashes CHANGE OIL or something like that. I reset it at each oil change.Does the OLM actually counts down all the way to 0%?
If it does, what happens after it reached 0% and you don't reset it?
Does it keep going down to -1%, -2%, etc?
It explodes.. never had it there.
This is one of many reasons why GM went bankrupt. Spending in areas that don't require them to do so when they can just state a 7K oil change interval instead of 3K and make that the standard across the line.GM knows cars. They pour BILLIONS of dollars each year into vehicle research. They designed the OLS based on this research. It is meant to stop you from changing your oil when you don't need to. Their goal is to reduce the amount of oil that gets wasted every year.
If the OLS sensor isn't telling you to change your oil, then there is no reason to change your oil. 3000mi/5000km intervals are too frequent and are nothing but a waste of oil.
Yes the Synthetic in those tests was run for 15,000mi. There were some LS1's that were run up to 25,000mi (!!!) with only slightly more contamination in the oil than there was at 15,000mi. They recommended 15,000mi oil changes because they didn't think they'd be able to convince people to run with 20,000mi oil changes. Even regular dino oil will last a lot longer then 3000mi. Some manufacturers recommend changing the oil on their cars at 12,000mi intervals (with dino oil).
Synthetic oil will read fine so that's not it.Hey guys i am having a problem with my oil life reader, it just keeps saying 0% and to change oil. I have held down the enter button for minutes and still won't reset. Now i have installed the metra turbo 2 kit but it reads everything else just fine even warning ice and all that stuff. I also switched over too synthetic the first time I did it went to 80% a day after I put it in and then dropped really fast after that and now I just switched it a week ago and it won't move off of 0% so I am wondering if it's a problem with the install kit or if I'm not resetting it right or if it will just not read synthetic please let me know ASAP thanks alot
i just tryed unplugging the negative terminal on the battery for half hour and holding brake for 10 seconds re set everything else but not the oil life im getting really angry, it will not even say resetting or what ever when you hold down the top button so it must be the kit broken right?
Yeah, that was the procedure for my 2008 G6 but the 2010 is set up differently. The DIC is between the tach and speedometer and is controlled by two buttons on the steering wheel titled "Info" and the "Return Arrow".^ turn key but dont start car, hit menu button and screen will say "oil life reset" then hold enter button until resets.
