oil change reset mileage data in ECU? Sign In

Do any cars store oil change reset mileages in the ECU? Like if the owner doesn't have oil change records, is there a way to reconstruct this data from data in the ECU?



say for example a car with a GM 3800 Series III like a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix base model

No, there is not, especially in a 15 year old car.

so this "electronic service book" that i've heard about with respect to Audis and Mazdas refers to something that is not inside the vehicle?

First off, you're driving a 15 year old Pontiac, not a late model Audi.

Your vehicle is not equipped with a service record module like many German cars

The vehicles that are equipped with this feature, the service records have to be manually entered into the vehicle through a scan tool and can be retrieved the same way. Some late model OBD3 cars equipped with SOS can retrieve the info through the Internet.
