If you check the fuse box by the drivers side door on the side of the dash you will find a red reset button on the fuse block. Turn the ignition on but don't start the engine, push the reset button and it should reset.

How to reset check oil light


You mean the change oil light, right ??
If it has a red button on the fuse box, you turn the key on and push the button, the change oil light should flash, then you push the red button until the light goes off.
If you don't have the red button, you turn the key on, push the gas pedal to the floor three or four times, and the light should go off.
The method for your model should be in the back of your owners manual.

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.

Change oil light came on


In your owners manual there is a procedure listed for resetting thr oil change reminder/maintenance light. Some vehicles you turn key on..do not start it.. step on gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times... then key off. others haver u hold the trip odometer reset button when u turn key on.
It varies from manufacture to manufacturer.

Maintance light


To reset your maintenance reminder system (even if the light hasn’t come on yet), you’ll need to turn your key to on (but don’t start!) and make sure your odometer is on TRIP A. Then key off. Press and hold the Odometer/Trip button. While holding down on the button, key the ignition to on (Don’t start the engine!) The display panel will count down from “------“ to “-“Continue pressing the button until the Trip A is displayed.

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.

Ghange oil reminder


Talking about the "Change Oil" notification when you first turn on the key? You need to reset the indicator, by (guessing from memory, check your owners manual) turning on key, and pressing the brake 4 times in 5 seconds.
Hope this helps.
