On a 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia, the oil life monitor reminder light is your Giulia’s sign to you that it needs an oil change. That said, this light won’t turn off on its own once that oil change has been completed. This means it's up to you to manually reset the Giulia’s oil life monitor light so your car properly monitors oil usage and informs you when a change is needed. And it’s an important detail—getting your oil changed when it’s needed can help prevent expensive

How to reset the engine oil maintenance light on a 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia

The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia’s oil life monitor reminder light is your car’s signal to you that it needs its oil changed. Once you change that oil, you’ll need to reset the monitor so your Giulia properly tracks the correct service interval between oil changes.
That said, resetting the oil life monitor on your Giulia isn’t difficult, and it involves pressing and holding your brake pedal and accelerator for a few seconds each before you’ll be on your way—no need to fiddle around with your car’s infotainment display! Here are two ways to reset your Giulia’s oil life monitor reminder light:
  • First, cycle your ignition to the ON position, but make sure the engine is OFF
  • Press & hold the accelerator pedal
  • With the accelerator pedal pressed and held, press & release the brake pedal six times, with a 1 second pause between each press
  • After the sixth press of the brake pedal, release it and wait one second before releasing the accelerator
  • Turn the ignition OFF, then restart the engine—your oil life monitor reminder light should be reset
If that doesn’t work to reset the oil light, try this method:
  • Without pressing the brake pedal, cycle the ignition to the ON position, but don’t start the engine
  • Press & release the accelerator three times
  • Turn the ignition OFF, then start the engine to ensure your oil life monitor light has been reset
Either of these methods should reset your oil life monitor system on your Giulia, and it should be ready to turn on again when it's time to change your oil.
