Default Code 82

Hi everyone!

Tonight on my way home I had a "Code 82" come up. Any know what this is? I am going to call the dealer tomorrow but or course want answers NOW.

I have had my Sonic since Oct 2011, it has just under 10k miles on it and I just got the oil changed last month (under 2k miles ago), currently it has a 1/4 tank of gas.

Any info would be great!

Sounds like they forgot to reset your oil life meter

Guess that beats the time the last dealership forgot to put OIL in my old Cavalier when I brought that in for an oil change. (I wish I was joking)

Thanks so much!

codes are a letter and 4 numbers like p0440 p= powertrain if you have onstar call them and get the rest of the code.Or if you have a book with your scan tool see what it is.

Code 82 is change oil soon.

Turn your car on, but leave it in park.
Push the menu button until you see oil life in your DIC.
Push and hold the reset button.
Have a good day.

No problem Laroux.

Omniman, in the owner's manual in the performance and maintenance section under Engine Oil life System; first paragraph.
