Hi Roland -

Here are the steps:

1.Turn the ignition to run, one position before starting engine/push START/STOP button once.
2.Press the (square) button, located on the instrument panel just behind the steering wheel to the left, to display the SETTINGS mode.
3.In the setting mode screen press (circle) button to move to MAINTENANCE.
4.Set a desired interval by pushing (circle) button to highlight ENGINE OIL and pressing (square) button.
5.The reset mode will open up and allow you to enter the desired distance.
6.Select RESET and select new time or distance.
7.Repeat step 3 for ENGINE OIL FILTER.
8.Turn the ignition off and then start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset.
