LOL!!! I had the same problem. I can't recall the exact steps, but there aren't that many options, so you'll get this. With the car running, press the Info button on the left side. It will cycle through the various statuses of the car. At one point, it will get to the Oil and will tell you something like "Press Reset if New." Press it and hold that darned button until it acknowledges that you changed the oil. It will reset that message from 0% to 100%. It took me a couple of tries to get that to reset. Just keep trying it till it resets. You'll get it.

SOURCE: Oil change light
Look up the light on the part of your owners manual that explains what each idiot light is for on your dash. That should give you a page where more information on it is available. Part of that section should state that if maintenance is done by someone other then your Mercury dealer, then do the following to reset the light. That should take care of ya.
