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.
