95GC Computer problem

I just changed the oil in my 95GC and I can't get that vehicle info computer to reset to 3500 miles. Everytime I go through the cycle and get it to 3500, when I hit the set button, it goes to zero. I have no problem selecting the proper language, just the miles. Anyone else have similar problem and/or solutions? The only other 2 problems I have experienced with this machine was a frozen idler pulley that broke the serpentine belt. The other problem is that occassionally the engine cuts out only when the engine is warmed up. Sometimes it will only happen a few times, other times it will go on for an hour or so, or until the check engine light comes on. After turning the engine off and letting it sit for an hour so and it is usually fine. That 5.2L engine just keeps on going.

What you're doing is setting the interval it renotifies you. What you're TRYING to do is reset the miles already passed. To do this, have the ignition "On", then hold the select button momentarily and then hold the set button for at least two seconds. As far as the engine cutting out: I'd pull the codes and see if it gives you any insight on what's triggering the check engine light.

I am ashamed of you...

I entered the term miles to service in our wonderful search engine and found This Post that I had made back in January explaining how to do this very thing...

But, you are right, it would be a good item for the FAQ. I will take that for action.
