Done oil change & oil filter done oil sensor & red light coming on after 20 mins. Can u help?

Since there are various different warning lights exactly which warning light is appearing after 20 minutes?

If it is the oil service warning light that is appearing then that has to be reset manually when the oil service is done.

After changing oil on 2006 jeep liberty 2x4 thats whlights en esp bas started coming on how could changing the oil cause this

co relationships, don't always prove causation.
i can change my oil with no disturbing any electronics, did you ?
are you in 4wd or 2wd,? yours is 2wd only car. sure.

did you read the operators guide in the glove box, on ESP.
The ESP can come on , for normal things.
here is an example.
i'm driving, my jeep, (2008) out of a parking lot and 1 tire hits some
gravel and the tire wants to SPIN.
so ESP kicks in and saves my life (LOL) the lamp flashed telling me
"hey buddy, watch that gravel stuff"
Started coming on, what does that mean.
its stuck on, or glows steady now, or glows full time driving ? on hard dry pavement in 2wd.?
did you read your operators guide first , in the glove box.
did you lose it.
here it is , down load it and keep it forever.

read the ESP sections.
if ESP is unhappy, get the car scanned,
scan it and see if there are DTC errors related to ABS, EPS, etc.

EPS uses many forces (controls) to stop skids.
it uses brakes, engine and transmission.
if you wish more information on how it works read the FSM>
then ask questions.

Yellow triangle with ! in the middle popped up on dashboard what does that mean

It's the ESP warning light, You may have a ESP button on the dash which you can push to reset it, Otherwise try having the car idling in neutral and turn the steering wheel fully left then right the back to middle, This should reset the light, if it comes back you will need to get the car plugged into a diagnostic scanner to find the issue.

How do I reset and turn off the "Maintenance Required" warning message on my 2006 Lexus LS 430 with built in navigation and radar cruise control? Many thanks.

normally disconnecting the battery for about ten minutes then reconnecting is enough to reset the computer and get the light to go out. although is there is a existing problem i will come back on after about 10 minutes of driving.

When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.

The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.

Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.

From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).

You might get lucky with a small service :)

I have ust serviced my 2001 volvo s40 and now the

did the sevice light come on before you serviced it? when you "serviced" it I assume you changed the oil and now need the service light reset.
I bought the 1998 S70. it got time to change the oil. Being how I am I changed the oil myself. I had to call dealership about resetting the service light.
they said $29.96.
I said 29.95?!!! how much if YOU would have changed my oil and reset the light?
they said $29.95.
so I learned you need to access the OBDII to reset the light.after service. hope this helps.

Bought a 2006 explorer and the low air in tire warning and change oil now warning comes on every time I start the car and I have to reset it. can I reset the computer? I have the computer readout gauge but...

All tire pressures have to be close to the same to turn of low tire waning. Th change oil is reset easily, and the directions should be in your owners manual.
