Here's my answer -I don't know the specific technical answer to this question, but over the years I have determined that the CBS is not set up to reset itself "backwards". At least not by very much. Once it "counts down" it maintains that count. As I mentioned in my previous post, the oil sensor analyzes the quality of the oil, but the computer uses other data to determine the need for an oil change.

Then and Than are different words and they are not interchangeable.
