I recently changed the oil on my truck (2008 F250, gas engine). About three weeks later, the message center displayed "CHANGE OIL SOON". Then a few days later "OIL CHANGE REQUIRED". I'm able to reset this message when i start the engine, but it reapears averytime i start it up. My oil pressure is fine, no leaks, and no red warning light. Any help in reseting this would be appreciated
