You have to reset the Oil Life Display when the oil is changed because it doesn't do it on it's own. Here's how to reset the system:

1. Turn the ignition to ON/RUN with the engine OFF.

2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.

If the "Change Engine Oil Soon" message disappears...the system is reset.

Weird I have to use the menu select button then click reset that's located on the turn signal lever.

Either way will work. I reset from the turn signal lever.

and to be clear for the OP, cycle the DIC display so it shows the oil life % remaining screen, press the button on the end of the stalk and it will prompt on the display: Reset Oil Life YES or NO (yes is the default) press the button again and watch the magic happen.

Stating the obvious...because that's my specialty...not everyone has a manual.
I just gave the extra one that I had to a friend of mine that bought a used 2010 SS with no manual in it.
