Question about 2006 Ford Escape
Have 07 with that problem; garage said needed hybrid temp gauge and 4 computer updates; did it but am sure I should have gone to Ford garage as far as outrageous price. so far no more problem.

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.

Do an ECU drain first. ie disconnect battery for 30 secs. foot the brake and reattached battery thereafter. If battery check light appeared again, disconnect battery while engine is on. If engine dies, you have an alternator problem - replace it. If engine remains on, you have a voltage regulator problem.
If battery check light disappeared, ECU drain resets sensors thus fixed your problem.

My 2002 Ford Escape had exactly the same problem as described. Dealer replace oil pressure sending unit (oil pressure switch) and problem still existed while leaving dealer about 3 miles away. I took the car back to the dealer again in two days and the oil pressure light kept of blinking sporatically all the way to the dealer. Dealer checked connections and they drove the car around and the oil pressure light never came on. I picked the car up from the dealer and I've had no problems with the oil pressure light flashing. I wonder if there is a microprocesser in the oil pressure sending unit which has to be given some time to be recalibrated to the cars main computer module?
