    Here's instructions for both the base instrument cluster option or the Message Center option if you have that in your truck:

    NOTE: The oil life calculation is set at a maximum of approximately 8,000 km (5,000 miles) or 180 days

    Press and release the SETUP button until the message center displays PRESS RESET TO BEGIN SYSTEM CHECK.
    Press and release the RESET button until the message center displays HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL.
    Press and hold the RESET button for 2 seconds and release to reset the oil life to 100%.
    The message center displays SETUP MENU HOLD RESET.

    To reset the oil monitoring system to 100% after each oil change [approximately 5,000 miles (8,000 km) or 180 days] perform the following:

    Press RESET control to display "HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL".

    I've tried these options, but to no avail. Nothing happens when I push any of the three buttons. If I'm low on fuel it will switch back and forth from telling me low fuel to change oil so I know that the screen can change, but doesn't seem to work by manual change.

    Are you sure you had the ignition key in the RUN position with the engine off? (That's the ON position, before "start").

    Tried it again. Just stays at Oil Change Required.

    Gee I'm stumped then. I tried to look up all the info on this. I'll keep looking around for you and I'll save this topic---you might re-read the owner's manual to see if there is something we've both missed here. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Ultimately you might need a trip to the dealer (gulp!).
