Scheduled Maintenance Pontiac G5. When the CHANGE OIL SOON message comes on, it means that service is required for your vehicle. Have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible within the next 600 miles (1 000 km). It is possible that, if you are driving under the best conditions, the engine oil life system may not indicate that vehicle service is necessary for over a year. However, your engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset. If the engine oil life system is ever reset accidentally, you must service your vehicle within 3,000 miles (5 000 km) since your last service. Remember to reset the oil life system whenever the oil is changed. When the CHANGE OIL SOON message appears, certain services, checks, and inspections are required. Required services are described in the following for “Maintenance I” and “Maintenance II.” Generally, it is recommended that your first service be Maintenance I, your second service be Maintenance II, and that you alternate Maintenance I and Maintenance II thereafter. However, in some cases, Maintenance II may be required more often.

Pontiac G5 Maintenance I. Use Maintenance I if the CHANGE OIL SOON message comes on within 10 months since the vehicle was purchased or Maintenance II was performed.

Pontiac G5 Maintenance II. Use Maintenance II if the previous service performed was Maintenance I. Always use Maintenance II whenever the CHANGE OIL SOON message comes on 10 months or more since the last service or if the message has not come on at all for one year.

  1. Are you sure it’s not the resume button, right above the set button where the cruise control buttons are, located on the left side of the steering wheel? Because
    I own a 2008 G5 and there is no such thing as a odometer reset button!

  2. The proper way is to first keep pressing the info button until you see oil life come up. Then, hold down the resume button, (marked as res), the info button, and the enter button(the one with the bent arrow at the bottom)simultaneously You should then see a message appear asking you if you want to reset the oil life. Press enter again-(the bent arrow button on the bottom. After this you should see a message that says acknowledged, and your oil life will be 100% again.

    1. Thank you for the correction you have made. Only with your help we can enhance this site.

  3. How bout “service air bag” light reset? and whats the problem as to WHY this comes on in the first place? Ive read that this can be part of the ignition switch that I know was a recall after my mom bought the car new. Is this true that possibly the ignition switch needs replaced again? Thanks, DanTheMan.

    1. Also may be from a plug, which is connected to the airbag. Most cars are situated under the driver’s seat!
