Reset Guide: Chevrolet Colorado Oil Change Light (2004-2022)

Hello and welcome to the day. Start the day off right with a bang! Today we’re working on Chevrolet Colorado, and we want to reset the oil change light on this car. We just did an oil change, and the light still stays on, so it needs to be reset. So I think this process is from 2004 to maybe 2022.

By the way, I’ve changed the engine oil with the full synthetic oil, and it’s a way that you can do it by saving some money. Not only does it save you money, but it saves you time because this oil is suitable for a year or 15,000 miles. So let’s dive right in.

After you’ve changed the oil, it’s essential to reset the system. We will be using the buttons on the left stalk, the SET/CLR button, the scroller and the MENU button. So here’s how I did it.

    It’s very easy, you can do it with the engine running or not running

  2. Highlight the VEHICLE tab

    Then what you want to do is you want to get to the vehicle menu. To get that you can hit this MENU button on the turn signal lever till we’re at the VEHICLE tab menu
