I don't like guys with a third grade education changing the oil in my $50k toy. You shouldn't either. Try the dealer next time.

If the system is the same as a duramax, this should work. Use the fuel information button on the steering wheel to show oil life, press and hold the select button (left arrow). You'll have to hold for several seconds, but it should reset to 100%.

GM Oil Life System - Resetting Procedure

1: Turn ignition to ON without starting engine.

2: Fully push and release the accelerator pedal slowly 3 times with-in 5 seconds.

3: If the CHANGE ENG OIL light flashes for 5 seconds, the system is reset. If the light does not flash, repeat the procedure.

Since the two above listed methods of "resetting" the oil change light differ, I'll be the arbitrator to resolve the differences. According to Chapter 5, Page 18 of the SSR Owner's Manual, FLASSH has given the correct directions. Those given by SMP409 are correct for most GM vehicles but in this case the SSR uses a different method. At least that's what the Owner's Manual says. Maybe both methods work but the Owner's Manual only lists the DIC as the way to "reset" the monitor. Hope this helps.

Service Document ID # 714804 is SPECIFIC to the 2003 Chevrolet SSR ... and was pulled & printed directly from the GM Technition's Computer at a local dealership at noon today ... where I changed the oil at 1100 miles on # 677 ... by my son who is the Heavy Line Tech at the dealership ... FWIW.
And this reset procedure just happened to work on the first try ... gee ... go figure.

SMP409, It's good to know that there may be 2 ways to reset the monitor. Do you know if the other method (the one in the Owner's Manual) also resets the monitor?

It should but if it is like my corvette, you need to have the ignition on but the engine off for it to stick.

The last time I reset the oil monitor with the engine running, it changed fine but jumped back to the 70% figure once I started driving. The owners manual indicates that the engine SHOULD NOT be running but the ignition to the on position when resetting the oil change monitor through the DIC and the reset button.
