Try reseting it again. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get it right.

Change oil light comes on ans stays on shortly after turning the car on. Then it turns off after a minute or so. Oil was changed very recently and don't know what's up?

This light needs to be reset when the oil is changed. To reset, do the following:
1. turn key to 'run' position with engine OFF
2.fully press and release the gas pedal 3 times in 5 seconds or less
3.light should now flash, which means it is reset. Light will go off in 30 seconds, or when key is turned off.

Change oil soon light

Its pretty simple, and you can do it in a few seconds...
Turn the key to ON (not crank) and within the first 5 seconds you have to step on the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 complete times...
you will see the light flash 3-5 times and then go out... its reset for 3,000 miles or sooner based on driving habits...
