This is a 2002 Buick Redevous that does not have Oil Life system feature.
I have tried turning on key but not starting engine and depress accellorator to the floor and releasing within 5 seconds, then turn engine on. The Change Oil Soon light flashes only once, not the 2 times I have read about.
I bought this vehicle used in 2005 and there was no manual with it.
