Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator flashes two times, the system is resetting. Turn the key off after the the light has finished flashing, then start the vehicle. If the CHANGE OIL SOON indictor comes back on, the engine oil life monitor has not reset. Repeat the procedure again. If the vehicle is equipped with the U20 option code, the vehicle as an oil life low indicator. The oil life low indicator shows an estimate of the oil's remaining useful life. When the oil life index is less than 10 percent, the display will show OIL LIFE LOW. To reset the oil life monitor, press and hold the MODE button until the light appears next to OIL LIFE. Press and hold the trip RESET button until the oil life percentage changes to 99 percent.

at 7000 you should definetly change oil, but depending on the make and model of your vehicle, to shut off of the check engine light will vary from a simple procedure in your owners manual, to having a obd 2 code detecter hooked up to identifie and delete codes
In the owners manual, you will find reset procedures.

Oil Change Reset A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display “OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change. Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage perform the following procedure: 1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press the RESET switch while the display is still counting down the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START OIL LIFE AT XXX%.” 2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%, 40% and 30%.
