Hey, I had my oil changed yesterday and the Dealer had the same trouble. Apparently they were trying it too quickly. They finally got it to reset by pressing the gas pedal down slowly and deliberately. Hope that helps.

I just had some problems w/ my Sirius presets reverting back to Weather defaults.

Copy and Paste from 2010 Manual (Gasser)

Here's a copy and paste from the 2010 RAM 2500/3500 gasser manual explaining the procedure already outlined by a few members earlier........ hope this helps to confirm proper procedure.

CHAngE OIL Message
Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change indicator system. The CHAngE OIL message will flash in the instrument cluster odometer for approximately 12 seconds after a single chime has sounded to indicate the next scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change indicator system is duty cycle-based, which means the engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon your personal driving style.
Unless reset, this message will continue to display each time you turn the ignition switch to the ON position. To turn off the message temporarily, press and release the Trip Odometer button on the instrument cluster. To reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled maintenance), refer to the following procedure:
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (Do not start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly three times within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.
NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not reset. If necessary repeat this procedure.

Just reset mine:

1 - ignition to "on"
2 - pump pedal 3x's
3 - start truck

I tried pumping then turning the ignition to "off" first and couldn't get the message to reset.

Satellite Radio not Holding Stations & Reverting Back to Weather Channel

I am having the same issues with the satellite radio not holding the pre-set stations, and going back to the weather channel.

I bought my 2010 Dodge 3500 Diesel truck at this horrible (crooked) dealer in Indianapolis, and have taken the truck back for a laundry list of problems, and the radio issue has been returned going on 5 times. They even changed out the radio, and the new one was even worse.... The dealer claims that I am the only one with this issue, and give the usual answer... "can't find a problem".

It's good to know that these forums are out there, because these crooked dealers & manufacturers can't get away with their BS any more....

Going back to the dealer for 6th time with radio issues & diesel fumes in the cab, which seems to be another major issue with these trucks, but of course the dealer says that I am the only one with the problem..... hahahahaha!
