Oil Change Reset Function - HELP!

I changed the oil on the GTO this weekend and tried several times unsucessfully to reset the "oil change" reminder chime.

I did just as the owners manual says -
1) Turned key to "on" position
2) Fully depressed accelerator pedal two times
3) Turned key back to the "lock/off" position

After maybe 20 attempts I gave up. I followed the instructions to the "t" but same result.......turn the car on and the "message center" tells me to get the oil changed . Anyone here have a similar problem or any ideas on how to cure this without a trip to the dealership?

Thanks in advance. - Scott

Our showroom/shop is directly on the Hudson River so it is like -20 here with the windchill. It is REALLY cold. As soon as you walk outside it is like a punch in the face. Can not wait until spring/summer!!!!

Challenger is "the company car".

I work for XV Motorsports where we build classic musclecars into modern supercars.

Check out our website at

www.xvmotorsports.com

We specialize in 1968-1972 B-Body and 1970-1974 E-Body Mopars.

We have our own designed, engineered and tested drivetrain, suspension, chassis & braking systems for classic Mopars. Cool stuff!

Mobil One oil changes every 3000 miles.

Somewhat solved

The fan would keep on for over fifteen minutes. So I unplugged them. Then I re-plugged them and they turned on. Then I pulled the the high speed fan relay and put it back in. It magically stopped. So I guess it was stuck open, I don't know. It has never done that before. If it happens to anyone this is what I did, if it does it again I guess I change the relay or have any electrician take a look at it.
The funny thing is that then I shut the door and the headlight lights stayed on so I thought nothing of it. After a while they were still on and I simply opened the door and shut it and the head lights turned off. Every once in a while the right door lock get stuck and when I try to lock the car with the key it starts honking. It won't go down manually when this happnes. I simply let it sit there and later on the thing is working perfectly.
I can swear I hear something squeal or slip on the second shift but hey wtf, the car is fun and aside from these little problems tis fine. Maybe the car is possesed or something? If I take it in for service then how can they figure what went wrong if the problem is not exhibiting itself. It is like a window regulator that has not been working for a month and you finally decide to have it changed, to find out that your mechanic calls telling you its working fine. Thanks all.
