When you RESET the SI lights after the yellow LED has illuminated along with OIL SERVICE or INSPECTION....all 5 green LEDs should light up when you first turn the ignition on.

This is what it looks like when its time to change the oil (or do an inspection):
And this is what the SI display should look like after you've reset the SI lights:
