Turn the ignition key to the RUN position. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON light flashes 2 times, the system is reset. However, if the light comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, the system did not reset. Repeat the procedure if the system does not reset.

Hope this help (remember rated and comment this help) Good luck.

Have a 2001 bettle changed oil and now oil light comes on but is blue


I assume that it is the oil change hasn't been reset, or the oil pressure is still a bit low. Find the owners manual. Online or dealer...

Oil Light is on need to Reset it. Don't have manaual.


Do you mean the "Oil" light or the "Oil Life System" light?
.
If the oil light is on, you need to stop operating the engine and have it checked to find out why the light is telling you that there is no oil pressure.

If you mean the Oil Life light, Then here are the instructions:

How to Reset the CHANGE ENGINE OIL Message

1. With the ignition key in RUN but the engine off,

fully push and release the accelerator pedal slowly

three times within five seconds.

2. Turn the key to OFF.

If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes

back on, the engine oil life monitor has not reset.
Repeat the procedure.

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%.

Oil maintenece light is on. Oil level is good. Could a clogged filter make this light go on?


This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.

Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck

To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.

It varies from manufacture to manufacturer.

If you have the standard message center this begins on page 126 of your owners manual.

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


In the owners manual, you will find reset procedures.

I found this for ya, hope it helps!

Please Rate!

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%.

Oil change


You have to reset the light according to the owner's manual.

If you don't have the owner's manual, try this:

Turn the ignition ON.

Press and hold the Trip/Reset button on the instrument panel for 12 seconds.

The light should flash and then go out. The system is reset.

If that doesn't work, comment back.
