Turn the key to the on position, do not start the truck step on the gas pedal three times. Then it should say on the DIC change engine oil, oil life reset.

Your all doing something wrong, I do this everyday for a living... Its 3 time within 5 sec. Check your owners manuals.

Straight from GM Service Info.

Service Information
Chevrolet Chevy K Silverado - 4WD | Sierra, Silverado VIN C/K Service Manual | Engine | Engine Controls - 6.6L | Repair Instructions | Document ID: 737242
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GM Oil Life System Resetting
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 16 000 km (10,000 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL SOON light may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 16 000 km (10,000 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.

Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed, use the following procedure.

•Turn the ignition key to the RUN position.
•Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
•If the Change Oil Soon light flashes, the system is resetting.
•Start the vehicle.
•The oil life will change to 100%.
•If the Change Oil Soon light comes back on, the system has not reset.
Repeat the procedure.

Thank you...
