How to Reset the 2017 Buick Encore Remaining Oil Life %

2017 Buick Encore Oil Life Reset

To reset the 2017 Buick Encore oil life % after an oil change service, please follow these instructions:

This vehicle’s computer system monitors engine revolutions, temperature, and mileage to determine when to change the oil and filter.

The recommended mileage for an oil change can vary significantly depending on driving conditions.

In order for the oil life system to function properly, it is essential to reset the system every time the oil is changed. The system calculates the oil life and indicates the need for an oil change through a “CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON” message. Changing the oil as soon as possible is recommended, preferably within the next 1000km (600mi). In ideal conditions, the oil life system may indicate that an oil change is not needed for up to a year. However, it is necessary to change the engine oil and filter at least once a year and reset the system during this time.

It is crucial to check the oil level regularly throughout the oil drain interval and ensure that it is at the appropriate level. In case the system is accidentally reset, it is necessary to change the oil after covering a distance of 5000km(3,000mi) since the last oil change. Don’t forget to reset the oil life system whenever you change the oil.

Reset Instructions for the 2017 Buick Encore Oil Life:

1. Turn the ignition to run (one position before starting engine).
2. Press the MENU button on the turn signal lever to show the Remaining Oil Life on the display.
3. To reset the engine oil life system, press the SET/CLR button on the turn signal lever while the oil life display is visible. After a few seconds, there will be a single chime and the oil life will be reset to 100%
4. Turn the ignition off and start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset.
