oil change service question

i read that you can get a free oil change if you dont drive your car much each year. (say... you owned your car for 1 year and you only have 8k miles)

so.. my question is.... the serivce guys arent supposed to reset your oil change meter... so what happens when you hit 0.

will the dealership give you another oil change?

my car is close to 1 year of not having its oil changed.. and my service indicator is at 3000.

will i be getting 2 oil changes within these few months..???

DUDE
there is free maintainance with the car 3/45 for the 00 i think 4/45 with the 02's not sure... every thing is free

it the indicator goes to 00 they reset the thing to 15k and smoke ... you call yr dealer they will change yr oil and do whatever maintainace needs to be done and it will not void yr warranty
