2006 ford exsplorer oil light did not go off after a oil change.

    I have a 2008 Explorer and the same problem.  It takes a bit of playing around with to set.  Must have tried 50 times and spent 20 minutes messing around.  The five seconds tip given here helps.  The manual says NOTHING about this at all.  One would think from 2006 to 2008 SOMETHING would have been finally said.  Like Ford does not know this.  Come on - give us a break!

In the owners manual, you will find reset procedures.

I found this for ya, hope it helps!

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%.

After oil change the warning light ( Oil change required ) still ON


You need to reset it manually after you change the oil. If you have the owners manual it will explain how to do this. If you don't have it you get get a PDF version online at ford.com.

2006 Ford Explorer owners manual.

Essentially you need to scroll through the message center until system scan appears. enter it and a message will come up oil life press reset if new or oil life hold reset if new. Follow those instruction and the oil life will eventually change to 100%.

Change Oil light came on my 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid. I changed the oil my self and the light is still on. How do I make it go away?


The change oil light is controlled by the main engine computer which monitors driving conditions and clock hours. Based on this data it suggest an oil change interval. The system, however has no way to know the oil was changed unless you tell it so. In your owners manual there is a procedure to "reset" this process in the engines computer. its normally done by holding a button and turning the ignition key on at the same time. It should be listed under oil change in the owners manual.

2006 Ford Fusion - no owner's manual. Light on dash that looks like a wrench. Don't want to go to dealer if I don't have to.


I think you are referring to the oil change reminder. Call a ford dealer and ask them how to reset that light.
