Bring the oil life index into the display, then press and hold the "check" button to initiate a reset. Or, to quote the owner manual:

To reset the Engine Oil Life System:

1. Turn the ignition to ON/RUN, with the engine off.

2. Press the vehicle information button until OIL LIFE
REMAINING displays.

3. Press and hold the set/reset button until 100% is
displayed. You will hear three chimes and the
CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will go off.

4. Turn the key to LOCK/OFF.

If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes
back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil
life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Just to add that the reset button is the one with the check mark on it.
