The oil life indicator has nothing to do with the radio display.

If the radio has stopped working, or the display is malfunctioning like you describe, the problem is within the radio itself. If it had no display at all, we could be talking about a body control module issue, as the BCM supplies power to the flourescent displays in this car, but if the display is just reading incorrectly, the radio will likely need to be replaced.

Fortunately, junkyards are full of radios for these cars, since they are rarely needed for replacement. www.car-part.com is an excellent resource, and any of the companies on that site will be happy to ship to you. You'll save a bunch of money, and replacing it is pretty easy.

Please take a moment to rate my answers, that's how I get compensated. If you have further questions, I am happy to follow up with you.
