Default Resetting Change Oil light without factory radio

I got my oil change about 3 weeks ago at a local Jiffy Lube, and now the message center on my cluster is showing: "Change Engine Oil" I think that they didn't reset the oil. Another reason whyI can't do it my self is because I have an aftermarket radio. Any suggenstions???? By the way it go'saway 60 seconds after the car has been on and never comes on until I turn off and then on the car.

this might sound crazy but if you turn the key to the"ON" position but dont turnthe car on and press the gas pedal 3 times realeasing it between each one for about a second and on the third one hold it down for about 3-4 seconds and then turn the key to the off position. then just turn you car on and it should go away.

The Search feature at the top of the page will reveal a wealth of information. A seperate thread about your problem would also yield more replies. To reset the tire monitor turn the key to ACC or ON, then turn your parking lights on/off 3 times in a row.

You either aren't putting the gas pedal all the way down and all the way up, or you are doing it too slow.
