Engine Life Warning Light Reset

I can't get the engine oil life warning light to reset. Any tricks? It says to just hit the reset button when the warning comes up, but it just scrolls to the next warning when I hit reset during a system check, and just shuts it off when the warnign comes on when I start the car. Then the warning is still there during the next system check or the next time I start the car.

    Thanks Ronnie, oh so helpful you cartoon. For any other mentally challenged surfers, I'll state the obvious: I changed the oil before trying to reset the warning light.

I need to know the procedure to reset, 'Change Oil warning' on my 2006 Ford Freestar.


On the right side of the steering wheel there is a button that says "setup". Turn the ignition key to the on position, push the setup button and hold it until the change oil warning shows 100%. There should be a message that pops up telling you to push the reset button to the right of the setup button. Push the reset button and hold until the message confirms the oil life has been changed to 100%. Release button turn off ignition key. Now start the engine to make sure the warning light does not come back on. If it does, try again.

Reset maint req light


You need to scroll to the oil life selection, on your odometer. When it reaches the oil life, hold the button in until the display flashes. Then press it again and it should reset to 100% oil life. Try it with the engine running. If that doesn't work, try it with the ignition on and engine not started ( dash warning lights lit).

If you have the optional message center it is on page 144 of your owners manual. Press and release the SETUP
control to display “OIL LIFE =

If you have the standard message center this begins on page 126 of your owners manual.

Reset oil life display after oil change?


THIS SHOULD BE IT.
How do I reset the Engine Oil life monitor and how does it work? TO reset To reset the Engine Oil Life monitor do the following:
Reset Oil life in NAV/DIC by (with car running) going to INFO>Oil Life>RESET
Press and HOLD until XXX turns to 100%
How does it work? The oil life monitor is a pretty sophisticated algorithm.

GM "The GM Oil Life System will automatically adjust the oil change interval based on engine characteristics, driving habits and the climate in which the vehicle is operated."

Oil warning light is still on after having the oil change, how do i reset the oil warning light ? /


The oil warning light indicates no oil pressure, changing the oil would not affect the light. You should not drive the car if this light is on, because if it is operating correctly, you will ruin your engine. The car should be checked immediately, and not driven until the cause of the light being on is determined.
good luck, and let me know the outcome. countrycurt0
