Hello,I will be glad to try and assist you with this,Welcome to Just Answer.


This indicates that your vehicle needs an oil change.When an oil change has been done the oil life is reset to 100 then it slowly counts down to 0 like this and when it reaches 0 or near 0 then the oil needs changed and the oil life reset to 100 again.
