2007 AURA XR
Default DIC Life of Oil %

My 2007 Aura XR with 158 k. I can't get the oil life to reset to %100. Nor can I enter the DIC Vehicle Personalization. I can reset the trip meters and scroll through the rest of the information but no resetting or changing. I disconnected the battery for a few minutes and pulled the ECM fuses but to no avail.

Thanks for any help that may be forthcoming.

DIC Vehicle Personalization
Your vehicle has personalization capabilities that allow
you to program certain features to a preferred setting.
All of the features listed may not be available on
your vehicle. Only the features available will be
displayed on the DIC.
The default settings for the features were set when your
vehicle left the factory, but may have been changed
from their default state since that time.
To change feature settings, use the following procedure:
Entering Personalization Menu
1. Turn the ignition on while the vehicle is stopped.
To avoid excessive drain on the battery, it is
recommended that the headlamps are turned off.
2. Press and hold the information and reset buttons at
the same time for one second, then release to enter
the personalization menu.
If the vehicle speed is greater than 2 mph (3 km/h),
only the UNITS menu will be accessible.
3. Press the information button to scroll through the
available personalization menu modes.
Press the reset button to scroll through the available
settings for each mode.
If you do not make a selection within ten seconds,
the display will go back to the previous information
displayed.

How to Reset the Engine Oil Life
System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change
the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Whenever
the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate
when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs
where you change the oil prior to a CHANGE OIL SOON
message being turned on, reset the system.
After changing the engine oil and filter, the system must
be reset. To reset the oil life system:
1. Turn the ignition key to ON/RUN with the
engine off.
2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal
three times within five seconds.
If the message is not displayed, the system is reset.
If the CHANGE OIL SOON message comes back
on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system
has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Thanks for the help, mashing the pedal three times did the trick. Oil % is now 100.
