Here I have two ways to try:

1.- Way, I think this should work with your model...
a) With your car OFF, place your key in the ignition and turn to "On". Do not start the car.
b) Find the odometer button and press until it reads the total odometer setting, (not the Trip A or Trip B setting).
c) Turn the key to OFF.
d) Place your finger back on the odometer button, press and hold. Then while still holding the button, turn the key back to "On" (not START).
e) Hold the odometer button in until the MAINT REQD light goes out...should take about 8-10 seconds.

2. Way, to reset the oil change system, follow the procedure below:
a) Turn the engine switch OFF.
b) While pressing the trip meter reset knob (→P. 100), set the engine switch to the IG-ON mode. Continue to press and hold the knob until the trip meter displays 000000.

From the owners manual, 4-3 Do it yourself maintenance

Hope help with this.

The oil light came on whild driving my 1999 Lexus RX300 and the engine shut down. After pulling to the side of the road, I turned the igintion switch off and then on and the car started and I drove i


The oil warning light is telling you the oil pressure has dropped below 10psi which does not always mean the oil level is low.
When the oil pressure drops, the power for the fuel pump is cut for safety reasons. You would not want the fuel pump to keep going if you were in a wreck and the engine stopped but the key switch was still on.
It could be a faulty sensor, or you really could be loosing oil pressure.
If the light comes on again, you would need to have the pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.

I changed the oil and need to reset the change oil light?


1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Do not

start the engine.

2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times

within 10 seconds.

3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.

NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you

start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not
reset. If necessary repeat this procedure.

Good luck on resetting the change oil light.

That was a new one for me and found the solution in the .pdf file
located on the owners section of the jeep.com website for the 2009 Jeep Patriot.

Main rod bearings


In order to do main bearings on any car it is strongly advisable to remove engine. In most cases leaving it in car cause problems with install that may result in complete engine failure.Depending on which bearing, it can be done but I've never seen one that didn't have problems afterwards. I'm not sure what you mean by "re-set itself" but at this point it may not matter. If referring to oil pressure light, it will go out when pressure loss is corrected, in your case loss from bearings.
This is not a small easy job. I know thats what you were hoping for and I'm sorry to be the one to tell you it is not.
