Oil Life Monitor

I can find where to reset the oil life monitor, where do I go to view the oil life monitor?

I read my owners manual, did I miss something?

Sorry for such a lame question...

Page 89 of the 2015 owners manual talks of resetting the oil life monitor when it reaches 10% oil life left (and/or when you do an oil change). It does not appear that the percentage left is displayable anymore; I guess most owners never bothered to check the oil life, so now it simply displays when it gets to 10% or less life expectency.

Page 415 talks about the oil change message itself:

When the oil change message appears in
the information display, it is time for an oil
change. Make sure you perform the oil
change within two weeks or 500 miles
(800 kilometers) of the message
appearing. Make sure you reset the
Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor after each oil
change. See General Information (page
83).
If your information display resets
prematurely or becomes inoperative, you
should perform the oil change interval at
six months or 5000 miles (8000
kilometers) from your last oil change.
Never exceed one year or 10000 miles
(16000 kilometers) between oil change
intervals.

Thank you!! I thought I was really losing it.

This is incorrect...

Hit the oil life reset button and it will show you the percent left. It won't reset it just yet. You have to go through a couple steps prior to it resetting.
