Need Help with Reset

My dash readout showed "Change Engine Oil". I changed the oil, but now can't figure out how to reset the notification.

I've tried everything from combinations of the "Mode" and "Trip" buttons, key on and off, standing on my head and holding my tongue to the right while singing Mary had a little lamb.

Can someone give me a sequence for resetting this and saving my sanity?

Ours is a Workhorse Chassis.

copy/Paste this link in your browser and follow see if anything there helps. Youll have to look around some, as it just a search, but itll probably save you another stanza of "mary had..." Good luck, just tryin to help.Evidently this question has been asked here before on irv2. Sandy

Cutting to the chase, turn the ignition switch on (do not start engine) and pump the gas pedal 4 or 5 times in rapid succession. The dash readout should flash "Change Engine Oil" several times indicating it has been reset.

From our Workhorse chassis owner's manual: Turn ignition switch to "ON" position, but do not start engine. - Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within 5 seconds, and turn ignition "OFF" for at least 10 seconds. - The oil life counter on the engine controller will be reset to start a new cycle.

I've found that it sometimes requires to do this operation twice...Bob

Have they done away with the "change engine oil" lite on the later W22 chassis, or aren't we talking gas chassis? Mine is either an 05 or 06 and I don't see such a light on my dash and I don't see anything in the manual. I have changed my own oil for the last 15,000 miles, so if I had that light it should be on.

It wasn't a light on mine. It said "Change Engine Oil" in the digital mileage readout area.
