2012 Buick Enclave “Change Engine Oil Soon” Reset and Fluids

DIC Menu

After performing the oil change the “Change Engine Oil Soon” index can be reset by locating the Driver Information Centre below the radio (refer to photo).  Here you will find 4 buttons but you will only need to locate the button with a car and the letter “i” (vehicle information button).  Once located you can do the following to reset the light:

 1)   Turn the ignition to run (one position before starting the engine).

2)   Press the Vehicle Information button until the Oil Life Remaining % is displayed.

3)   Press and hold the Set/Reset button (check mark) until the display changes to 100%.   Three audible beeps will sound.

4)   Turn the ignition off and start the engine to verify the reset is complete.   If the “Change Engine Oil Soon” message is still on; repeat steps 1-3.

Buick recommends the following fluids to be used:

1. Engine Oil – Dexos approved 5W30

2. Engine Coolant – DEX-COOL

3. Brake Fluid – DOT 3 Hydraulic Brake Fluid

4. Power Steering Fluid – GM Power Steering Fluid

5. Automatic Transmission – DEXRON VI

6. Rear Differential – 75W90 Synthetic Axle Lubricant

7. Transfer Case – 75W90 Synthetic Axle Lubricant
