At what mileage total on the odometer is the Oil Change Indicator light going off on your truck? It sure isn't monitoring the oil in MY truck. I changed my oil last at 30196 miles. At 30332 miles, the Oil Change Indicator lit up. You telling me that this system says I need to change my oil after 136 miles? It's mileage based, roughly every 7500 miles. It doesn't come on EXACTLY at 7500, 15000, 22500, 30000, etc. but it does come on roughly around that point every time (at least it has in my '08; i had forgotten in my previous post that the Oil Change Indicator came on around 22500 for me too). I'd be willing to bet when you look back at when the Oil Change Indicator came on last you were around a 7500 mile interval from when it indicated previously.

No sir, that's not correct. If I run long, hard highway miles, it will let me go more than 5000 miles before telling me to change it. I don't let it go that long anyway, so I don't know if it would run on up to 7500.

BUT, if I'm just running around town for a month without much hard driving, it will tell me to change it after only 2000 miles (give or take) since the last time it told me (and was reset).

It's documented somewhere that it pays attention to driving style since the last reset. If yours came on after 136 miles, then either it wasn't properly reset when changed, or something else is wrong.

I don't reset it at oil changes. the indicator just comes up on it's own every 7500 miles or so. I reset it then and carry on about my business. I change my oil every 5000 miles regardless of what the truck is telling me.

Quote from the Service Manual

Oil Change Indicator System

Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change indicator system. This system will alert you when it is time to change your engine oil by displaying the words “Oil Change Required” on your Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC). The engine oil change indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the engine oil change interval may fluctuate depending on your personal driving style. Driving styles such as frequent stop and go type driving can increase the frequency of the engine oil change. This is the result of more frequent regeneration of the exhaust aftertreatment system, which can decrease the life of the engine oil. Failure to change the engine oil per the maintenance schedule can result in internal engine damage.
For information on resetting the Oil Change Indicator message, refer to “Oil Change Required – If Equipped,” under “Personal Settings (Customer Programmable Features)'” in the “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” Section of this manual.

Is there any way to reset all of the trip data at one time? On our '03 shop truck you could punch reset twice and reset all of the trip info. On the '08 it appears that you have to page thru each item and clear them one at a time.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (Do not start engine).
2. Let the Dash Lights Turn Off.
(Heres where I can not remember, its either option "3" or "4", all done within 10 secs after dash lights turn off)
3. Insert Seat Belt and Release; Insert Seat and Release; Insert Seat belt and Release
4. Insert Seat Belt and Release; Insert Seat and Release; Insert Seat belt
5. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position (I think you should here a Chime if you did it correctly).
I'm gonna try that on mine. I hate that chime. Especially when I'm cruising slow, through the wood roads deer hunting.
