The easiest way is to turn the key to the on position & hit the gas pedal 3 times & it will clear.

Or you can turn the key to the on position and press both the info and reset button at the same time for a few seconds and then scroll through the menu till you hit the oil life reset and just hold the reset button until it says reset/acknowledged.

Interesting. My 2010 is quite simple...once I select the oil life by using the "info" button, I simply hold the "return" button for a few seconds until it resets. I guess this is a newer feature?

Same way in my 2008...

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely
in a well preserved body...
but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ...
'...holy sh*t ...what a ride!'

The manual for my 2010 says to do do as described above with the info button but for some reason, it did not work. I read it again and it said with the 2.2 engine, you can also depress the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds after turning the ignition on and that did it.
