I do not have my book with me now, but the directions are in the owners manual. Sorry I could not be of more help but at least it gives you a place to start. I hope that helps!

I checked the manual and here it is:

Engine Oil Replacement Reminder Light
(for vehicles sold in U.S.A.)
This light reminds you when to replace the engine oil.
This light will come on when the ignition key is turned to “ON”
and will go off after about a few seconds.
When you drive for about 7200 km (4500 miles) after the
engine oil replacement, this light illuminates for about 3
seconds and then flashes for about 12 seconds with the
ignition key turned to “ON” position. If you continue driving
without the engine oil replacement, and if the driving range
exceeds 8000 km (5000 miles), the light will come on after the
ignition key is turned to “ON” position. The light will remain on
thereafter.
If the light is flashing, we recommend that you replace the
engine oil at an early opportunity depending on the driving and
road condition. If the light comes on, replace it as soon as
possible.
You need to reset the light after the engine oil replacement.
Reset the light by following the procedure below:
1. Turn the ignition key to the “OFF” position with the odometer
reading shown. (For details, see “Odometer and trip meter” on
page 50.)
2. Turn the ignition key to the “ON” position while holding down
the trip meter reset ****.
Hold down the **** until the light goes off. Before the light
goes off, it illuminates for 3 seconds, flashes for 2 seconds and
illuminates for 1 second.
If the system fails to reset, the light will remain flashing. In this
case, return to step 1 and try again.

Hope this helps!
