The GMC Yukon is an SUV of the American car manufacturer GMC. It is currently offered in the fifth generation and is based on the GMT chassis of General Motors like the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban. Today I want to talk about resetting the oil life light on the GMC Yukon after an oil change.
So when the remaining oil life is low, you will get the Change Engine Oil Soon warning light. So do an oil change on your car after you see this warning. Then you must reset the oil life interval after each oil change.
For your info, this operation work for the fourth and fifth generations of the GMC Yukon (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 model years).
