    Did you change viscosity of oil, such as going to a thinner oil etc? The OLS (Oil Life System) works on pressure and energy required to pump the oil. The more aged and burned the oil becomes the pressure changes and the sensor system detects that change indicating the time to change. The system could either be sensing a change in oil, the pump could be putting out the wrong signal based on change or close to failure. If you have tried the reset procedure and it doesnt work again and you didnt change the oil then I would watch the OIL PRESSURE gauge and see if it fluctuates. If you see low oil pressure or swings back and forth (never should go below 40 when cranked) contact your dealer or mechanic.

How to reset change oil soon light


Oil Life Monitor Resetting (KD, KE)
Description
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil and the engine oil filter - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 12 500 km (7,500 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL message may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 12 500 km (7,500 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.
The engine oil life monitor will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner if the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message is displayed.
Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed.
Resetting Procedure
Press the INFORMATION SKIP button on the DIC control panel in order to display the OIL LIFE LEFT message.
Press and hold the RESET NO button until the display shows 100% ENGINE OIL LIFE.

NEED TO RESET OIL CHANGE LIGHT


How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Whenever the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is changed prior to a CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message being turned on, reset the system.
Always reset the engine oil life to 100% after every oil change. It will not reset itself. To reset the Engine Oil Life System:
Display the OIL LIFE REMAINING on the DIC.
Press and hold the SET/RESET button on the DIC for more than five seconds. The oil life will change to 100%.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Reset change engine oil light 2009 ford escape xlt


This is how it works on my 2010 Escape. There are 3 buttons to the lower left of your steering column (Info, Setup, and Reset):
1) when it's displaying the "oil change required" message, hit the "reset" button to get rid of the message2) then hit the "Setup" button twice and you'll see the "oil life" screen, which is now at "0%". It tells you what to do next (i.e. "hold reset" until it say 100%).

When i changed oil i forgot to follow the corect proceedures,so now i reading in dashboard of my car . change oil soon . later i follow the proceedures in cataluge , but same sentence appear pls. advise


this light is triggered only by miles. you will probably need to go to the dealer to reset this light. in the meantime try this: 1. Turn the key to the "ACC" position which is the notch that allows power but doesn't turn the engine.
2. The display will read change engine oil soon - hit the display button(i) and the display will read 0% oil life.
3. Hit reset button (the check mark button) for 5 seconds and the display will change to 100 % oil life.
4. It may not work the 1st,2nd,3rd .... attempt , but will work eventually.
