The oil light comes on when oil pressure is too low. Oil level too low or defective oil pump in the engine. But the most common problem is a defective oil pressure sending unit sensor on the engine. The only way to reset the oil light, is by fixing the problem. There is no reset button.

My change oil display on my 2005 ford explorer i changed the oil and it wont go out

Press your reset button on the on board diagnostics which is located on the dash, keep pressing the rest button until you see "oil life" once you come to the oil life, hold the reset button until it reads "Oil Life 100 percent" release the reset button, shut the vehicle off then re start it, that will turn off the message in the message center telling you to change your oil.

I can;t reset the change oil light on my dash of my 2007 lincoln town car I had the oil changed last week ?

This procedure work for one 2004... press mode button until oil life or change oil or change oil now is displayed press and hold mode button for 5 seconds until reset for new oil is displayed then hold reset for 2 seconds.

Additionally, I quite other comments about this subject....

Few issues have troubled technicians more than the infamous "Change oil soon light." We have even had quick lube shops send customers to me at the dealership to shut off this light.
Yes, the engineer that designed this system most certainly had flunked out of the "User Friendly" semester of college. The most common problem is between step 1 and 2 of the owner's manual. The natural tendency is that when we scroll through the menu to the "oil life XX%" mode, we lift our finger. This is where most go wrong. Once the "oil life XX%" comes up on the menu, do NOT lift from depressing the button- just hold for 5 seconds until the "Reset for new oil life" comes up. Again, do not lift your finger.

The parking assist is a different concern altogether. The parking assist light illuminated when it is deactivated- opposite of what seems logical. It was probably the same design engineer as the oil change system. If the system is disabled, (illuminated) it is intended to cycle back when the key is shut off.

Hope helps.

2007 ford 500 oil warning light comes on and just had the oil and filter changed 700 miles ago,62000 mile on car .light comes on when started ,push reset and it goes off and stays off until the next start...

When they changed the oil they did not reset the light. The car needs to be told when the oil is changed.

when the warning comes on press the setup button. it should say press reset if new. Press the reset button. It should say if new oil hold reset. Press and hold the reset button until the display changes to oil life set to 100%.
