Default resetting the "change oil" light?

I have searched and tried everything but I cannot get my change oil light to go off? I hold my trip and hour buttons down at the same time for 5-15 seconds and nothing happens? I have a 2004 Rincon with GPS. Does it have to be on or off? Do I push one button first? Any help would be great!

Press together and hold down the 2 bottom buttons on the left side of you display pod for about 2 or 3 seconds and the light should go off. These are the odometer/tripmeter and clock/hourmeter.

Does the atv have to be running or key off? I have tried pushing the two buttons down and nothing happens?

Doc,
Did you get your oil change indicator to turn off yet?

no I haven't yet. I am going to try and not push too hard on buttons and see if that works? I will give you an update when I try.

Doc,
Like buttons on a remote control or even a cell phone.... The harder you press the button, the less likely it is to be damaged. Make sure that each button works normally individually. If so, then there is no reason why they shouldn't work simultaneously.
When you press and simultaneously hold down the HOUR and ODOMETER buttons, make sure that you hold them down (simulatneously) for at least 5 seconds, while the ignition key is ON. You can also reset the Oil Change indicator by: Pressing the HOUR and ODOMETER buttons simultaneously while the key is OFF, then turn the key switch ON while you are still holding those two buttons/switches down.

Thanks Guys! I finally got it. I tried it this afternoon and hardly pushed and it cleared. I just found it weird because when I hit the buttons before it changed the hour and trip meters so I thought I was missing something. Kind of funny because I usually change my oil 3-4 times a year and never go by the indicator. My thoughts are oil and filter = cheap insurance.

Good to hear Doc! I trust that you are using a good quality motorcycle/ATV oil - like Mobil1 Racing Motorcycle oil, as standard (automotive) oil will goof up your wet clutch and hydrolic valves in the tranny.
